Get the wikipedia skinny on Dan

 

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 jeans cars!
