This from the Associated Press today:

New York Yankees slugger Jason Giambi is set to start a minor league rehab assignment Friday night with Class A Tampa and hopes to rejoin the team next week.

The designated hitter, who has been sidelined since May 30 after tearing tissue in his left foot, said he will play two games with the Yankees’ Florida State League team before he is re-evaluated Sunday.

“I’m to that point where I really can’t do anymore working out, taking BP and running,” Giambi said. “Now it’s going to be more game activity. I think that will be a gauge to see how I do.”

Giambi took on-field batting practice for the second time Wednesday and went through an extensive base running session.

“I’m fired up,” Giambi said. “It’s gone faster than I expected.”
