Manager Terry Francona is confident DH Jason Giambi won't need a rehab assignment before returning. He could be activated early next week.
Even if he returns next week, it is not like the Indians plan on using him extensively at DH. The 43 year old is roster depth for the Cleveland team, and his fantasy value is minimal.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Giambi was not playing very often prior to his DL so his activation will not bring much fantasy value unless the Indians suffer some injuries to their starters.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
