NEW YORK (AP) -Jason Giambi was back at Yankee Stadium on Friday but had little to say.
The injured designated hitter hasn't spoken with reporters since baseball commissioner Bud Selig asked him on Wednesday to meet within two weeks with his top steroids investigator, former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell. Selig said he will take Giambi's cooperation into account in deciding whether to discipline Giambi for remarks in a newspaper article last month that many interpreted as an admission of steroids use.
Giambi was not in the Yankees clubhouse while it was open to reporters prior to Friday night's game against Pittsburgh.
``There's really nothing I can say at this point other than I want to be a part of this team and show my support,'' Giambi said in a statement issued through the team. ``They are playing some great baseball right now, and they seem to be having a lot of fun doing it.''
Giambi is on the disabled list with an injured foot and doesn't know when he'll return to action. The players' association said Giambi will decide whether to speak with Mitchell after he consults with his lawyer and the union. The union also said it doesn't think there are any grounds to discipline Giambi.
