Giambi to interview for Rox managerial post
By Thomas Harding / MLB.com
Giambi has been a trusted mentor of young hitters and pitchers, as well as a sounding board for Tracy and front-office officials. He has hit .248 with 22 home runs and 86 RBIs as a backup first baseman and pinch-hitter in Colorado. In 2012, however, he was limited to 60 games, first missing time while battling viral syndrome, and at the end due to a hernia that required surgery. He finished the year with a .225 batting average, one home run and eight RBIs.
Giambi was AL MVP with the Athletics in 2000. Over 18 seasons, Giambi has hit .280 with 429 home runs and 1,405 RBIs.
