TAMPA, Fla. -- Jason Giambi arrived in Tampa and told the New York Yankees he will be at Legends Field on Monday, a day before the first full-squad workout.

At a Feb. 10 news conference in New York, Giambi issued a general apology but didn't acknowledge using steroids. Yankees manager Joe Torre predicted Giambi and Barry Bonds, who reports to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday, will be under continued scrutiny.

Bonds and Giambi testified in December 2003 before a grand jury investigating illegal steroid distribution. The San Francisco Chronicle reported in December that Giambi told the grand jury he used steroids and that Bonds told the grand jury he used a substance that prosecutors believe contained steroids.

"Everybody who has been named, whether it be Jason or Barry or anybody that was named in [Jose] Canseco's book, I think everybody is going to look at and have a question because the name was connected with steroids," Torre said.
