Still-active Giambi bidding to manage Rockies

Veteran slugger Jason Giambi will interview for the Rockies vacant managerial job, though no date has been set, the Denver Post reported.

Giambi, 41, who has never coached at any level, is not retired and had hernia surgery last week to keep open the option of playing in 2013.

Giambi has no experience running a team but has worked with Rockies players on their hitting and talked strategy with former manager Jim Tracy, according to the Post.

ORTIZ TALKS: DH David Ortiz is seeking a two-year deal between $25 million and $30 million to return to the Red Sox, the Boston Herald reported. Ortiz, 36, signed a one-year, $14.575 million deal before the 2012 season.

BA PICKS TROUT: Baseball America named Angels rookie CF Mike Trout its player of the year, citing his "rare combination of offense, baserunning and superb defense."

OZZIE AUCTION: Hall of Fame SS Ozzie Smith will sell his 13 Gold Gloves, 11 of his All-Star Game rings and two World Series rings from his personal collection in a November online auction run by SCP Auctions of Laguna Niguel, Calif. It's part of his estate and family planning.

BLUE JAYS: Paul Beeston is believed to be working on a two-year extension to remain president and CEO past the Oct. 31 expiration of his contract. Beeston, 67, has been club president since October 2009.

BRAVES: C Brian McCann had surgery to repair a frayed labrum and cyst in his right shoulder, and it's unknown if he'll be ready for spring training.

padres: PGA star Phil Mickelson said he expects an announcement shortly on his bid to buy a stake in the team's ownership.
