The Oakland A's claimed right-handed pitcher Dan Giese off waivers from the New York Yankees and optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento, the club announced today. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the A's designated right-handed pitcher Chris Schroder for assignment.

Giese was 0-1 with two saves and a 6.48 ERA in nine relief appearances with the Yankees this spring and was designated for assignment on Saturday. He went 1-3 with a 3.53 ERA in 20 games, three starts, over two stints with New York last year. The 31-year old right-hander held opponents to a .232 batting average, including .209 against left-handers. Giese spent the balance of the 2008 season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre where he was 4-2 with a 1.98 ERA in 13 games, 10 starts. He made his Major League debut with San Francisco in 2007 and is 1-5 with a 3.76 ERA in 28 career appearances, three starts.
