Just heard on ESPN Radio - Michael Kay show - Giambi to the DL with a partial tear - will be in a walking boot. Not sure how many people are still playing him regularly but this should open up a spot for those with DL elibible leagues.
Now he is saying he will be reevaluated in 3 weeks. Some complicated sounding problem that could end his season altogether.
"Jason Giambi today was placed in a protective walking boot when foot and ankle specialist William Hamilton diagnosed him with a torn plantar fascia -- the tight band of muscle beneath the arch of the foot -- in his left foot.
Giambi had been previously diagnosed with plantar fasciaitis, which is inflammation of the plantar fascia."
According to Buster Olney, someone his size will have serious trouble coming back from this any time soon. He is saying a month or longer.
Or trade him before someone notices -
