GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Cleveland’s Jason Giambi will be sidelined for about three-to-four weeks with a broken rib in his right side.

Giambi was hit by a pitch thrown by Edwin Jackson of the Chicago Cubs in the third inning of a March 7 game. Cleveland said Thursday the 43-year-old Giambi had felt increased discomfort over previous five days and went for an MRI that revealed the fracture.

The 2000 AL MVP, Giambi is a non-roster invitee to big league training camp. He hopes to play in his 20th major league season and second with the Indians.
