The Rockies have re-signed 39-year old lefty swinging 1B Jason Giambi to a 1-year, $1.75 million dollar deal. He played in 19 games for the Rockies last season and he was 7 for 24 (.292 avg, 1.035 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 2 homers and 11 RBIs. Giambi played in 102 games overall for the Rockies & A’s in which he was 59 for 293 (.201 avg, .725 OPS) with 43 runs scored, 13 homers and 51 RBIs. He has now played in 1,951 games in his major league career and he is 1,871 for 6,625 (.282 avg, .932 OPS) with 1,159 runs scored, 409 homers and 1,330 RBIs. The Rockies will use Giambi as one of their main pinch hitters off the bench and he could give Todd Helton a day off every once in a while at 1B.
