Jason Giambi hopes to play in 2014

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Giambi would like to make it to 20 seasons before he calls it quits.

Cleveland Indians designated hitter Jason Giambi says that he would like to play one more season, reports Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Next year would be Giambi's 20th season.

In his first year with the Indians, Giambi saw time in 71 games and hit .183/.282/.371 with nine home runs. He started 54 games at designated hitter, but did not spend a single inning in the field defensively. If he can no longer trot out to first base on defense, his options are limited to American League teams where he can act as a part-time designated hitter.

Giambi had been with the Rockies for three and a half years prior to signing with the Indians. He played sparingly at first base, but it was also clear his bat was declining even then. In his final year in Colorado, Giambi hit for just a 675 OPS, a far cry from his MVP days.

Giambi is now 42 years old and has not played in 100 games since 2009. The Indians may be interested in him returning or another team could be intrigued by the veteran presence he would bring, but Giambi may have to settle for a minor league contract to fight for a spot in spring training. The Indians paid him $750,000 for his services in 2013.
