The Cleveland Indians have signed 42-year old lefty swinging DH/1B Jason Giambi to a minor league deal.  Giambi played in 60 games for the Rockies last year and he was 20 for 89 (.225 avg, .675 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer and 8 RBIs.  He has now played in 2,163 games in his first 18 years in the majors and he is 1,968 of 7,021 (.280 avg, .926 OPS) with 1,203 runs scored, 429 homers, 1,405 RBIs and 20 stolen bases.  Giambi will get a shot this spring to show if he has anything left in the gas tank.  The Indians could use some help power wise from the left side of the plate.
