Rockies to Bring Back Giambi for 2010
Ethan Wagner,

A strong finish to the 2009 season has earned Jason Giambi an extra season with the Colorado Rockies.

Giambi agreed to a one-year contract to back up Todd Helton at first base and provide manager Jim Tracy with some left-handed power off the bench.

Last season started poorly for Giambi as he batted .193 with only 11 HR in limited action with the Oakland Aís. After Oakland released him in August, he signed with the Rockies and posted a strong .292/.452/.583 (AVG/OBP/SLG) line, albeit in just 31 plate appearances.

Barring injury, itís unlikely Giambi sees more than sporadic action this season. If Helton does miss time at some point, Giambiís power potential in Coors Field would make him somewhat interesting, but heís not worth drafting outside of the very deepest leagues.
