The Colorado Rockies have placed Jason Giambi on the disabled list after it was discovered that he has a viral infection. Giambi says he hasn't felt well for several weeks. The Rockies also called up left-handed starter Edwar Cabrera, who will get the ball against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

Cabrera has started one game for the Rockies this season and it did not go well: in 2-1/3 innings, he allowed seven runs (five earned) on five hits. Three of those hits were home runs.
