Giambi was placed on the shelf with a viral infection and the 41-year-old told Troy Renck of the Denver Post that he’s been feeling sick for the past three weeks.
His last start was July 1, but Giambi was relieved that “they found something” via blood tests because he was worried “it was just Father Time catching up with me.”
Whatever chance the Rockies had of trading Giambi before July 31 is now gone, although his potential value as a bench bat was pretty minimal anyway.
