Description: DH Jason Giambi has released a statement announcing his retirement.
Insight: Giambi played 20 years, but hadn't been fantasy worthy for the last six years. He was a fantasy stud from 1999 through 2008 for Oakland and the Yankees. He'll finish his career with a .277 batting average, 440 homers, 1,441 RBI and a .916 OPS.
 
6/2/2014 3:09:00 PM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi could be a nice play on Monday. Update: Giambi is in Monday's starting lineup.
Insight: Giambi is a career .325 hitter with three homers versus Boston right-hander John Lackey. Add in a strong wind blowing out to right field and he's a viable fantasy option. Giambi has homered in two of his last five games.

5/20/2014 3:22:00 PM
Description: The Indians have activated DH Jason Giambi on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: He was out with a strained calf. Giambi is hitless for the season in ten at-bats and doesn't usually see enough action in his pinch hitting role to warrant attention from fantasy owners.
 
5/5/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: The Indians have placed DH Jason Giambi on the 15-day DL.
Insight: He's out with a strained calf. This is already Giambi's second trip to the disabled list this season. He's hitless for the season in ten at bats.
 
4/24/2014 9:53:00 AM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi is a career 6-for-16 (.375) with four home runs versus Kansas City starter Bruce Chen.
Insight: This is contrary to Giambi's career numbers which show he's a much better hitter against right-handers (.283, .945 OPS) than lefties (.264, .852 OPS). With DH Ryan Raburn batting .191 this season and unfavorable numbers against Chen, expect to see Giambi in the lineup and he'll have fantasy value if started.
 
4/21/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi has been activated from the disabled list.
Insight: He was dealing with a broken rib. At age 43, Giambi (.183, 9 HR, 31 RBI last season) is the oldest active player in Major League Baseball. He was hitless in 10 minor league at bats, so isn't likely to be ready for your fantasy lineup.
 
4/15/2014 9:42:00 PM
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.
 
10/31/2013 9:17:00 PM
Description: Cleveland DH Jason Giambi will return for another season. SOURCE: Jordan Bastian, MLB.com
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.
