TORONTO (AP) - New York Yankees right-hander Kevin Brown will likely return from the disabled list Friday and start against the Baltimore Orioles that night. Brown, sidelined since June 9 with a lower back spasm and an intestinal parasite, threw a bullpen session Wednesday and felt good.
Jason Giambi has also been fatigued because of an intestinal parasite, but Torre expects to know more about the slugger's condition Thursday.
ESPN said it was possible that Giambi would miss the rest of the season to undergo treatment for the condition.
"Jason tried to play through it, there's no question about it," Torre said. "Maybe he tried to talk himself into thinking he was getting better."
Giambi has felt fatigued since early June because of an intestinal parasite. He was expected to receive test results Tuesday while meeting with Dr. Scott Hammer, an infectious disease specialist at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York.
But manager Joe Torre said the team won't know more about Giambi's status until later this week.
NEW YORK (AP) -- New York Yankees first baseman Jason Giambi has been diagnosed with a benign tumor, but is expected to return to the team later this season after undergoing treatment.
The Yankees announced Friday night that Giambi was placed on the 15-day disabled list and will be treated immediately. The team, citing privacy issues, declined to divulge where the tumor is or what type of treatment Giambi will undergo.
Yankees manager Joe Torre said he didn't believe surgery would be necessary.
