 BOSTON (AP) -The New York Yankees placed Jason Giambi on the 15-day disabled list Friday with torn tissue in his left foot that is expected to sideline him at least three weeks, and perhaps much longer.
They also sent right-hander Matt DeSalvo to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre and called up righty Chris Britton and outfielder Kevin Thompson from the club.
Giambi, the Yankees' designated hitter, tore the tissue while running out a home run Tuesday night at Toronto. He was examined in New York on Thursday by Dr. William Hamilton.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said before Friday night's game in Boston that surgery was not an option.
Giambi is hitting .262 with seven homers and 23 RBIs. His foot began bothering him soon after he played the field for the first time on April 28, and he hit .117 in May with three homers and six RBIs.
DeSalvo was 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA for the Yankees.
Britton had no record and a 0.78 ERA with five saves in 15 relief outings at Scranton Wilkes-Barre. Thompson was hitting .260 with two homers and 17 RBIs for the Triple-A team.
