The A’s just announced that they’ve claimed right-handed pitcher Dan Giese off waivers from the New York Yankees, and then optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.
The former San Francisco Giant went 1-3 with a 3.53 ERA in 20 games with the Yankees last season.
The A’s made room on the 40-man roster for the 31-year-old Giese by designating right-handed pitcher Chris Schroder for assignment.
