In one of the more “creative” excuses for putting a player on the DL, Jason Giambi has been placed on the 15-day list due to a “Viral Infection”…
It’s good news that they found something…I thought it was just Father Time catching up with me.
With the DL move it is unlikely Giambi will be traded before the 7/31 deadline.
Cabrera will be called up to take Giambi’s place on the 40 man roster and hopes to do a bit better than his only other start in the bigs: 3 HR’s in 2 1/3 innings. His 19.29 ERA will be a big anchor around his neck tonight, but with a little luck it will be much reduced by nights end.
