Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi is slated to return Friday against the Blue Jays. SOURCE: Indians.mlb.com
Insight: He's been on the disabled list with a broken rib. At age 43, Giambi (.183, 9 HR, 31 RBI last season) is the oldest active player in Major League Baseball. His next game will be the 2,235th of his career.
 
3/13/2014 2:39:00 PM
Description: Cleveland DH Jason Giambi has suffered a non-displaced rib fracture and will miss 3-4 weeks, according to the team
Insight: It's pretty incredible that Giambi is still playing at age 43 but things heal slowly at that age. Though he did smack nine homers in 2013, we doubt he'll get enough at bats to warrant fantasy consideration this season.

Insight: It's pretty incredible that Giambi is still playing at age 42. Though he did smack nine homers in 2013, we doubt he'll get enough at bats to warrant fantasy consideration next season.
 
10/2/2013 9:54:00 AM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi is questionable for Wednesday's American League Wild Card game against Tampa Bay.
Insight: In a part-time role as a pinch-hitter and player coach, Giambi has hit .183 with nine homers and 31 RBI in 186 at-bats.
 
9/18/2013 10:40:00 AM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi doesn't get many starts these days, but he could get one against Wednesday's starter Bruce Chen as he's a career .375 hitter with four homers in 16 at-bats.
Insight: In a part-time role as a pinch-hitter and player coach, Giambi has hit .181 with eight homers and 29 RBI in 177 at-bats.
 
8/14/2013 6:24:00 PM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi hit a game-tying three-run homer in the eighth inning Wednesday afternoon against the Twins and went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs in the game.
Insight: In a part-time role as a pinch-hitter and player coach, Giambi has hit .190 with eight homers and 28 RBI in 147 at-bats. He now has 437 career dingers.
 
7/3/2013 10:01:00 AM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi is 4-for-10 with a pair of home runs versus Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie and a 1.400 OPS.
Insight: Giambi is coming off a two-hit game on Tuesday and should definitely get a chance to stay hot in theis favorable Wednesday matchup.
 
Cold6/17/2013 9:42:00 AM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi is hitless in 13 tries versus Royals starter James Shields and hitless in his last four games (nine at-bats).
Insight: If that doesn't scream avoid this matchup then nothing will. Gioambi is batting .179 this season, but does have six home runs in 84 at-bats.
 
6/1/2013 7:00:00 PM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi has homered in his last three games.
Insight: Those games have come across a span of six days. The veteran has five home runs this season but is hitting .203 in a part-time role.
 
5/29/2013 3:28:00 PM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi will get the start on Wednesday at DH against Bronson Arroyo and the Reds.
Insight: Giambi is a career .333 hitter with three home runs in 18 at-bats versus the Cincinnati right-hander. He's worth a play on Wednesday.
 
4/21/2013 9:13:00 AM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer, five RBIs and three runs Saturday against the Astros.
Insight: Giambi has only played four games this year and really serves as a pinch-hitter and another coach on the bench for manager Terry Francona. Best case scenario is that he duplicates his 2011 numbers -- .260, 13 HR, 32 RBI, .958 OPS (with Colorado).
 
3/25/2013 10:00:00 PM
Description: Indians first baseman Jason Giambi has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Giambi (.225, 1 HR, 8 RBI for Colorado last season) is dealing with a lower back strain. He's eligible to return on April 9th. 2013 will be Giambi's 19th major league season.
 
2/10/2013 1:42:00 PM
Description: 1B/DH Jason Giambi signed a minor league contract with the Indians which includes an invitation to spring training.
Insight: Even if Giambi manages to make the Indians' opening day roster, he won't see enough at-bats to be fantasy worthy.
 
Hot5/21/2012 10:58:00 AM
Description: Colorado PH/1B Jason Giambi "owns" Miami hurler Mark Buehrle with a career .414 batting average, four homers and 11 RBI in 29 at-bats.
Insight: Should you see than Giambi is in the starting lineup for Todd Helton (.219), don't hesitate to get Jason in your starting lineup. In limited opportunities this season, Giambi is batting .321 with a .987 OPS.
 
5/2/2012 7:56:00 PM
Description: Jason Giambi delivered a walk-off three-run homer Wednesday afternoon against the Dodgers. It was Giambi's first blast of the season.
Insight: Giambi (.222, 1 HR, 5 RBIs) has only had 18 at bats so far this season so even if he contributes with a clutch pinch-hit every once in a while, he won't get enough playing time to be a realistic fantasy option at first base.
 
4/20/2012 10:05:00 AM
Description: If Jason Giambi gets the opportunity to play against Milwaukee starter Shaun Marcum, it would be hard to not take a flier on the Rockies first baseman. He's faced Marcum 14 times, with a career .500 batting average including three home runs and eight RBI (1.917 OPS).
Insight: Giambi has made two starts this season with subpar results - batting just .143.
 
5/19/2011 8:56:00 PM
Description: Jason Giambi hit three home runs and drove in seven in Thursday's 7-1 victory over the Phillies.
Insight: Giambi looked like the Giambi of old tonight, but I wouldn't read too much into it. He remains DH in a league that doesn't have one.
 
1/18/2011 12:01:00 AM
Description: Giambi re-signed with the Rockies Monday on a minor-league deal.
Insight: He hit .244 in just 176 at bats with Colorado last season on a bigger contract. Good luck milking him for value this year. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/17/2011 4:55:00 PM
Description: Jason Giambi signed a minor league deal to go back to Colorado. SOURCE: COLORADO ROCKIES ON TWITTER
Insight: He has a good chance of making the team if his bat looks alright in spring training. He won't have any fantasy value but the Rockies seem to like him around the clubhouse.
 
9/10/2010 8:00:00 AM
Description: Giambi went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, walk and a run scored on Thursday against the Reds.
Insight: Giambi homered for the second time in his last five games as he now has five homers and 30 RBI in 77 games this year. (RapidDraft.com)
