Jason Giambi Injury Leads To DL Trip

The Colorado Rockies will be down a man during Tuesday night's game with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Jason Giambi injured his left quad while running out a play in the top of the ninth inning during Tuesday's game. Clearly in pain, he left the game and had Aaron Cook come in to pinch-run for him. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list to help him recover.

No corresponding move was announced, so the Rockies will play with just 24 men in this game. Mike Jacobs, currently in Triple-A Colorado Springs, is a possible call-up. He is hitting .296 with an .891 OPS and 18 homers so far this season.

Giambi has hit 10 home runs this season, including three in one May game. Several teams, notably the Phillies, have inquired about his availability. This injury may put an end to any trade talks.
