SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -New York Yankees slugger Jason Giambi went 2-for-5 for Class-A Tampa on Monday night in his third minor league rehab game.
Giambi had two singles against the Sarasota Reds. He is 3-for-10 overall during his first game action in two months.
The designated hitter, 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.
Barring any setbacks, Giambi could be ready to rejoin the Yankees in early August.
Right-hander Joba Chamberlain, selected 41st overall in the 2006 amateur draft, struck out all three batters he faced for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in his first relief appearance Monday. The Yankees moved the promising prospect to the bullpen over the weekend and is under consideration for a major league callup in the near future.
