Giambi would return to the Rockies

Jason Giambi told Rockies' players last weekend he remains interested in returning if a designated hitter role doesn't materialize, according to the Denver Post .

Colorado continues to talk to the agents for Fernando Tatis and Robb Quinlan, though Quinlan is receiving strong interest from at least one other National League West team. Tatis has been a target since the winter meetings, and Melvin Mora is also on the radar.

The Rockies continue to seek bullpen depth, and there are plenty of pitchers available, including Kevin Gregg, Guillermo Mota, Brendan Donnelly and Scott Schoeneweis.

2010 Options: Oakland Athletics

The A's are faced with just one 2010 option, Jason Giambi.  It's a $6.5MM club option with a $1.25MM buyout.  So the question will be whether Giambi, at age 39, is worth a net of $5.25MM in 2010.  Through 96 plate appearances this year, Giambi is hitting .210/.333/.296.  He's hitting grounders at the same rate as his miserable '04 season.  The silver lining might be that Giambi had a rough April last year as well. 

The A's really need Giambi, Orlando Cabrera, and Matt Holliday to start hitting.  Talking to Joe Stiglich of the San Jose Mercury News, GM Billy Beane indicated the A's are unlikely to bring in reinforcements for their woeful offense.
