TORONTO (AP) - Jason Giambi won't be disciplined by commissioner Bud Selig after the New York Yankees slugger had a ``frank and candid'' meeting with baseball's steroids investigator.
Selig said Wednesday that Giambi's cooperation with former Sen. George Mitchell and the player's charitable work persuaded him not to take further action.
``He's doing a lot of public-service work, and I think that's terribly important,'' Selig said on the second and final day of an owners meeting. ``He was, I thought, very frank and candid with Sen. Mitchell, at least that was the senator's conclusion. Given everything, this is an appropriate decision.''
Giambi has acknowledged a ``personal history regarding steroids.'' He agreed to speak with Mitchell last month after Selig threatened to discipline him if he refused to cooperate.
A former American League MVP, Giambi missed more than two months this season with torn tissue in his left foot. He's batting .270 with nine home runs and 26 RBIs in 51 games.
