Former MLB player Jeremy Giambi dies at 47, agent says


Former major league baseball player Jeremy Giambi died Wednesday at his parents’ home in Southern California, according to a statement from agent Joel Wolfe. He was 47.

No cause of death was immediately provided.

Giambi spent six seasons in the majors, including a stint in Oakland with his older brother, Jason. He also played for the Kansas City Royals, Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox. He last played for Boston in 2003.

Giambi was part of the 2002 Athletics team whose season was chronicled by author Michael Lewis in the 2003 bestseller “Moneyball.” It was during that season he was traded to the Phillies for John Mabry.

“We are heartbroken to learn of the passing of a member of our Green and Gold family, Jeremy Giambi,” the A’s said in a statement. “We offer our condolences to Jeanne, Jason, and his family and friends.”
