News: Giambi (ribs) is slated to come off the disabled list either Friday or Saturday, Nick Camino of Newsradio WTAM reports. Impact: In two rehab games at Double-A Akron over the weekend, Giambi combined for no hits with a 1:3 BB:K in six at-bats. Clearly, his timing is a bit off, but even when he's at optimal health, the 43-year-old is unlikely to make an appearance outside of a pinch or at DH.(RotoWire, )

News: Giambi (ribs) may have to alter his rehab schedule slightly due to the inclement weather the team has encountered this week, MLB.com reports. "I don't think he's going to be a big proponent of [a rehab assignment]. Saying that, when a guy's been down for a month -- I think he had [six plate appearances in spring training] -- we'll see. If anything, it's certainly not going to be extended. We'll see. We'll talk," manager Terry Francona said. Impact: Giambi had planned on taking some regular batting practice Monday and Tuesday but rain put those plans on hold. He may need an abbreviated rehab assignment before rejoining the Indians in a bench role.(RotoWire, )
