Giles Unsure About Future
Two-time All-Star Brian Giles, one week into camp and on a Minor League contract, was asked if he was confident his chronic right knee can take the punishment of playing.
“Not as much as I’d like at this point,” Giles said. “It’s just okay. Obviously, I’ll give it a few more days. It’s not where I want it to be. I’ll see if it gets better with more conditioning and how that changes it.”
Making the team for Giles and Doug Mientkiewicz just got tougher with the Wednesday night signing of Garret Anderson. Those three are in the mix for the left-handed pinch-hitter role. — Ken Gurnick
