The Indians have a standing offer to Jason Giambi for a non-playing role

Eventually Jason Giambi will have to stop playing. He may not have his brain around it yet, but the guy will be 44 this year, so the end is nigh. Heck, the end was probably a couple of years ago, but his likability and presence in the clubhouse is valued enough to where the Rockies and then the Indians have let him keep playing.

In the likely event that he can’t snag a job as a player this year, though, he can still make it to spring training:

He’s turned down coaching opportunities in the past. Given that he has a .185 batting average in 157 games dating back to 2012, my guess is that he won’t turn them down much longer.
