Jason Giambi was seen by foot and ankle specialist Dr. William Hamilton today and found to have a tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot. That is the tissue that connects the heel to the base of the toes.
He will go on the disabled list today. Giambi was given a walking boot to immobilize the area and will be evaluated again in three weeks.
No word as of yet who will be called up to replace Giambi on the roster.
This means lots more of Johnny Damon as the DH and Melky Cabrera in center field.
