Ok, it's pronounced Giese like vice, but play along.... :)
The A's just claimed
Goose Gossage Dan Giese off waivers....
OAKLAND, California (Ticker) – The Oakland Athletics on Wednesday claimed journeyman pitcher Dan Giese off waivers from the New York Yankees and optioned him to Class AAA Sacramento.
A one-time used car salesman, Giese, 31, retired in 2005 after spending six years in the minor leagues without getting a shot in the major leagues.
However, the righthander returned to baseball with the San Francisco Giants in 2007 and signed with the Yankees following the season.
Giese went 1-3 with a 3.53 ERA in 20 games during two stints with New York last season, including his first three career major league starts.
To make room for Giese on the 40-man roster, the A’s designated righthander Chris Schroder for assignment.
A little insurance for the bullpen perhaps. Beats selling
