San Francisco Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit is trying to pull off a very, very rare feat as the 2013 season comes to a close: In the span of two months make the move from one-time top prospect to roster filler to squarely in the plans for the 2014 rotation in San Fran.
Years after his inclusion as a top pitching prospect in the trade that sent Carlos Delgado from the Florida Marlins to the New York Mets, Petit has strung together six starts worthy of re-watching, four of which were excellent and one that was, well, nearly perfect in every sense of the word.
In total, Petit has thrown 38 innings for the San Francisco Giants staff, pitching to a 3.08 ERA.
While Petit hasn’t quite earned a spot yet, he’s put himself on the radar for the front office and ownership group in San Fran.
