MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian reports that the Indians could get DH Jason Giambi back as early as Tuesday. Manager Terry Francona says Giambi won’t need to go out on a rehab assignment in the minor leagues. They would prefer to activate him on Tuesday rather than Monday as the Indians will be facing a left-handed starter in Drew Smyly of the Tigers.

Giambi, 43, has been out since May 3 with a strained right calf. He was hitless in 11 plate appearances to begin the season. Giambi had begun the season on the disabled list due to a broken rib after he was hit by a pitch during spring training.

    They should get rid of this cheater and bring back JIM THOME. Now that’s a class act.

    If they like this guy so much, make him a coach. Otherwise, it is the biggest waste of a roster spot in the entire league.

    Grandpa is sucking up a roster spot and right now the Tribe needs SOMEBODY that can either hit or pitch
