Fantasy Now: Yusmeiro Petit

Tristan H. Cockcroft explains why Yusmeiro Petit is a must-start Saturday.

Ryan Vogelsong seeks bounceback for SF Giants

Gregor Blanco tries to catch Nolan Arenado’s three-run homer at Coors Field on Wednesday, one of four allowed by Ryan Vogelsong. On Tuesday night, Yusmeiro Petit pitched a complete game on 84 pitches to remind us that slinging the ball at AT&T Park is a whole lot different than at Coors Field, where Petit was hammered for six runs in four innings in his prior start. Now, Ryan Vogelsong gets a shot to remind us. He followed Petit’s game in Denver by allowing a career-high-matching eight runs five plus innings. That included four homers, or one fewer than his entire August total. Vogelsong...

Giants gain ground on Dodgers with 5-1 win over Dbacks

SAN FRANCISCO-A year and three days ago, Yusmeiro Petit came within one strike of throwing a perfect game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at AT&T Park. He wasn't quite as good Tuesday night, but he was more than close enough for the San Francisco Giants.

Petit leads the way again for Giants in 5-1 win over Dbacks

SAN FRANCISCO-A year and three days ago, Yusmeiro Petit came within one strike of throwing a perfect game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at AT&T Park. He wasn't quite as flawless on Tuesday night, but he might have been even more efficient.

Yusmeiro Petit pitches masterpiece, Giants win

Petit threw 84 pitches in a complete game, striking out nine without a walk. He threw 26 first-pitch strikes out of 29 total batters. Mercy. And in September, in the middle of a pennant race, Yusmeiro Petit pitched one of the best games you'll ever see. It's the second straight September in which he's pitched one of the best games you'll ever see, both coming against a hapless Diamondbacks team. This year's means something just a touch more, though. It's a pennant race. The Dodgers lost. The Braves lost. The Brewers and Pirates lost. Not taking advantage of an opportunity like this would be...

Yusmeiro Petit, wow — SF Giants beat Diamondbacks 5-1

A quick glance at the pitching probables for the weekend Dodger series shows two fabulous matchups and a one-sided one. Clayton Kershaw vs. Yusmeiro Petit. Not so fast, Big Dodger in the Sky. Petit was as efficient as it gets Tuesday night, requiring just 84 pitches to complete nine innings and lift the Giants past the Diamondbacks 5-1. He threw 26 first-pitch strikes to 29 batters and had no three-ball counts. In fact, he had just three two-ball counts. A pitching coach’s dream. Maybe it’s not so one-sided, after all. Kershaw, a candidate for both the MVP and Cy Young awards, figures to...
