The Indians have placed Jason Giambi on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf. It is unclear at this moment whether or not the 43-year-old slugger will still be able to provide a positive clubhouse presence. Giambi went 0 for 10 and played sporadically after joining the team (after an earlier DL stint). Giambi's roster spot will be filled by Yan Gomes, who is returning from a brief paternity leave for the birth of his daughter. It is unclear at this moment if Yan is aware of the adorable standard he and his child will be expected to live up to, established by former Indians catcher Victor Martinez and his son. It will be a while before the youngest Gomes is old enough to go on the field, but with Gomes signed to an extension through at least 2019, her time will come.
