Jason Giambi made the Indians out of spring training, but began the season on the disabled list with a strained lower back.

After some roster shuffling–including sending Carlos Carrasco back to Triple-A–the Indians have activated Giambi from the DL.

Giambi was signed to be a bench bat and at age 42 he’s not exactly suited for regular playing time anyway, but if Drew Stubbs continues to struggle the Indians could get Giambi into the lineup a few times per week by shifting some guys around. Giambi hasn’t had more than 225 plate appearances in a season since 2009, but he posted a .370 on-base percentage and .444 slugging percentage from 2010-2012.
