Yankees' Giambi to disabled list?

Postby WebHamster » Sat May 22, 2004 12:00 pm

Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - New York Yankees first baseman/designated hitter Jason Giambi suffered a sprained right ankle during Friday's loss to the Texas Rangers.

Giambi, who could be headed to the disabled list, suffered the injury while rounding first base in the ninth inning of a 9-7 defeat. He left on crutches after the game and underwent x-rays, which were negative. Giambi has never been on the disabled list in his 10-year career.

The star slugger stroked a hit to right field, scoring Derek Jeter, but pulled up lame rounding the bag and limped his way to the base. Giambi was then replaced for pinch-runner Homer Bush.

"He's really frustrated as hell in the trainer's room," Yankees manager Joe Torre said after the game. "He said he didn't feel anything pop, which I guess is a good sign."

Giambi has missed some time in the past two weeks with back spasms and bursitis in his hip, both on the left side of his body. He is batting .270 with nine home runs and 24 RBI this season.
