Jason Giambi has signed a minor league deal with the Cleveland Indians according to multiple sources. The deal, if Giambi makes the team, is worth $750,000.
Giambi was making $1M with the Rockies last season and was in the running for the Rockies manager job that eventually went to Walt Weiss. The team offered him the spot of Hitting Coach, but he turned it down.
The Rockies seem to have a direct conduit to/from the Indians with Jimenez, Spilborghs, Rogers, White and of course Pomeranz being just a few coming and going between the two teams in the last couple of years.
