NEW YORK - The New York Yankees soon will have another potent bat back in their lineup.
 

Yankees first baseman Jason Giambi, who has been on the disabled list since July 24 with a benign tumor, has been given clearance to resume playing, the team announced Tuesday.

"After consultation with doctors at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital on Monday, New York Yankees first baseman Jason Giambi has been cleared to resume baseball activities immediately," Yankees team physician Dr. Stuart Hershon said in a statement.

Giambi is to get back into playing shape with the Yankees' Class A affiliate in Tampa before rejoining the team.

A former American League Most Valuable Player who has been fatigued for much of the season, Giambi was diagnosed with a parasite on June 29. He underwent a battery of tests in late July for his condition, which had failed to improve.

The 34-year-old Giambi has played in only 70 games this season, batting .221 with 11 homers and 36 RBI. He has gone hitless in his last 19 at-bats.

The way they was talking you thought he might have been out for longer. They was saying the whole season at one stage.

i have to wonder about this one, i am glad to hear he is back and apparently healthy, but it seems to me that there is something missing here, it was only a couple of weeks ago that they found the tumor, i just don't think that this is the whole story

Yeah, soemthing does not seem right with this story. Shouldn't he be getting treatment?

It was a benign tumor correct?... so yes, he has been cleared to play since it does not threaten his health...but they didn't say that he will actually play, nor that he is feeling any better.
