FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -New York Yankees slugger Jason Giambi went 1-for-5 during a doubleheader for Class A Tampa on Saturday night in his first game action in two months.
Giambi was set to start the minor league rehab assignment Friday, but Tampa's game at Fort Myers was rained out. He went 0-for-2 with two walks in Saturday's opener before collecting a double and an RBI in three at-bats in the nightcap.
He planned to have his status re-evaluated Sunday, and hopes to rejoin the Yankees in early August.
Giambi, sidelined since May 30 after tearing tissue in his left foot, is hitting .262 for New York 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.
