Jeremy Giambi, younger brother of Jason Giambi (2000 AL MVP), died Wednesday at his parents home in CA said his agent. Further details are unknown at this time.1
Jeremy Giambi played professional baseball for 6 years. He was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in 1995 and made his MLB debut with the Kansas City Royals in 1998. He also spent time with the Philadelphia Phillies and the Boston Red Sox but he is most remembered for his time with his brother, Jason, on the Oakland Athletics.
He had one little smudge on his career. In December 2003 before a federal grand jury, he and Jason admitted to using steroids, Deca-Durabolin and HGH, which were obtained from Greg Anderson, the then personal trainer for Barry Bonds.2
Jeremy Giambi played with the historically significant 2001 Oakland Athletics with David Justice, Chad Bradford, and Scott Hatteberg.
In his 6-year career, Jeremy Giambi collected 52 home runs, 372 hits, and a .263 average.3
Our deepest sympathy goes out to his friends and family. Please be respectful.
