Papa Giambi is looking to start the upcoming 2014 regular season on the disabled list, but it appears that he will be able to take a hack at southpaws before too long.
It’ll be tough to replicate last season’s heroics, but the Tribe appears more than willing to allow Giambi to take up a spot on the 25-man as a bit of a player-coach1. The veteran slugger batted just .183/.282/.371 in 216 plate appearances last year, but was exponentially more than a slashline.
