Jason Giambi, who in the original lineup, was just scratched after Joe Torre watched him in BP.
Giambi has a bone spur in his left foot and has trouble planting his leg as he swings. He has some custom-made orthotics en route but they won’t be here for a week.
The Yankees were hopeful that a different method of taking his foot would get Giambi back in the lineup. Perhaps tomorrow.
