A few updates:
Jason Giambi was 0 for 3 with a walk, a strikeout and a throwing error for Scranton. He is on his way to Toronto but may not be activated until Tuesday.
“Its exciting for me to get the opportunity,” Giambi said. “The injury healed a lot faster than we all thought. I’ll just go up there, and the team’s playing great, so the biggest thing is to just go up there and be a part of it.”
Of greater significance, perhaps, Ross Ohlendorf allowed one hit in two innings of relief and struck out two. Of his 35 pitches, 22 were strikes.
The Yankees also released Scott Williamson, who had been pitching for Scranton.
