Indians sign Jason Giambi


CLEVELAND, OH - The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has re-signed DH JASON GIAMBI to a Minor League contract with a non-roster invitation to Major League camp.

Giambi, 42, equaled the single-season club record with three pinch-hit home runs in 2013, the last of which came in game-winning fashion against the Chicago White Sox on September 24 that kept the Indians 1.0 game AL WildCard lead intact. For the season he drove in 31 runs in 71 games (54 starts at DH), led the club with an RBI per at bat ratio of 6.0ab/RBI and collected his 2000th career hit on September 8 vs. the New York Mets.

The five-time American League All-Star owns a career Major League batting average of .278 (2002-7207) with 403 2B, 438HR & 1436RBI in 2234 games (.400OB/.519SLG/ .919OPS) over 19 seasons with Oakland, New York-AL, Colorado and Cleveland.
