Giambi to miss Devil Rays series
Jason Giambi has a small ligament tear in his left wrist and will miss the New York Yankees’ series this weekend against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
• The Atlanta Braves have exercised the team’s $8 million option for 2007 with John Smoltz, ensuring the right-hander will return for his 19th season with the team.
• Miguel Cabrera was missing from the Florida Marlins’ starting lineup for the second consecutive game last night against the New York Mets because of a strained left shoulder. The All-Star third baseman also was scratched from the lineup Wednesday night due to his ailing shoulder. He is batting .338 with 25 homers and 110 RBI.
• Nearly a thousand disgruntled Orioles fans walked out of Baltimore’s game against Detroit en masse yesterday, culminating a demonstration aimed at team owner Peter Angelos. A majority of the protesters wore black T-shirts that read “FREE THE BIRDS,” and many carried signs that had “For Pete’s Sake” on one side and “Free the Birds” on the other. Baltimore is in the midst of its club-record ninth consecutive losing season, all of them under the leadership of Angelos, who gained control of the franchise in 1993.
0 – Home runs the Yankees’ Jason Giambi has hit since injuring his wrist Aug. 20.
2 – Pitchers who have at least 150 victories and 150 saves (John Smoltz and Dennis Eckersley).
