TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -New York Yankees slugger Jason Giambi took batting practice Saturday for the first time since hurting his left foot and is hoping to rejoin the team by early next month.
``Maybe a little sooner just depending on how fast things go,'' Giambi said after a two-hour workout. ``I have no pain. That's going to be the biggest part. Everything is great so far.''
Giambi has been sidelined since May 30 after tearing tissue in the foot. He took 20 swings in a batting cage and could start hitting on the field in the next few days.
The designated hitter is also running in the outfield and playing catch.
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.
