Dan Giese is scheduled to start Tuesday. That’s up in the air now.

Joe Girardi: “He’s OK. He’s just a little stiff. We thought it was best to get him out. It shouldn’t jeopardize anything Tuesday. … I don’t think it’ll be a problem. He’ll just have treatment probably tomorrow and Friday and be back in our bullpen Saturday.”

Here’s another version …

Dan Giese: “I definitely wasn’t 100 percent Sometimes your shoulder stiffens up and you can kind of loosen up a little bit. But mine got progressively worse.

“I’ve had it in the past and it you usually give it some time to rest and you bounce back pretty well. Hope that happens. We’re going to the doc tomorrow and see what’s going on in there.

“You know when you get a tetanus shot and there’s that ache deep in there? You feel like somebody punched you in the shoulder real bad? That’s kind of the feel. I couldn’t get extension on any of my pitches.”

Giese will see Dr. Chris Ahmad tomorrow at New York Presbyterian Hospital. At best, he’s questionable for Tuesday.

Derek Jeter was going to pinch hit in the ninth inning. He said he will play Friday.
