The Yankees will send minor-league journeyman Dan Giese to the mound against the Angels. Giese gave the Yankees six innings of shutout baseball in his first start. In Giese’s last 14.2 innings out of the pen he has allowed just two runs and has an ERA of just 2.51. John Lackey came off the injured list and was brilliant in his first seven starts resulting in a 1.44 ERA. He has slipped back recently pitching to a 6.16 ERA over his last six starts. The Yankees have a long history of success against Lackey where he is just 4-7 over his career with nearly a five ERA. Good value on the Yankees here, and we will take them as a sizeable valued dog.
