Manager Terry Francona feels Jason Giambi (knee) will "definitely" play again, but said team doesn't know how long the veteran will remain on the disabled list.
So the original mid-July timetable is a bust, it seems. Whether Giambi plays again or not is probably irrelevant to the fantasy community. You could be playing in a 30-team AL-only league and he still wouldn't have value. We wish him nothing but the best but would prefer to see him retire than to keep dragging this out.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
