Kevin Thompson was a late scratch for Scranton tonight and is on his way to Boston to replace Jason Giambi on the roster.
Thompson is hitting .260 with two homers and 17 RBI. Scranton. He was with the Yankees from April 9-24, going 2 for 8 with two RBI.
Had a chance to speak with Brian Cashman. He said Giambi would not need surgery but is expected to miss at least a month. Only rest can fix what he has.
Cashman would not rule out Giambi missing the entire season, but that seems unlikely.
It also seems possible the Yankees could send out Matt DeSalvo and bring Chris Britton back for at least the weekend.
