From Mexico to the World Series, Petit shines

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Yusmeiro Petit was running out of choices. His major league career had hit rock bottom and was heading nowhere. In April 2011, the Seattle Mariners released the Venezuelan pitcher during spring training. After starting his career with four mostly forgettable seasons with the Florida Marlins (2006) and Arizona Diamondbacks (2007-09), Petit was left sitting in his Miami home, waiting for a call from any major league team. No one called. read more

Giants | Yusmeiro Petit to work in long relief

Petit rides to the rescue in October, a la Lincecum 2012

And now, in the role of Tim Lincecum circa 2012 – and maybe even better – the Giants present Yusmeiro Petit. He pitches six scoreless innings in an epic Division Series marathon. He adds three more scoreless innings in the NLCS. He offers calmness amid chaos, strikeouts instead of baserunners and a tidy row of zeroes on the scoreboard. All of this raises a natural question: Should manager Bruce Bochy plug Petit into the postseason rotation? Yusmeiro Petit has pitched the equivalent of a complete-game, two-hit shutout this postseason. (Chronicle photo) Before we contemplate that question,...

How Petit stayed focused, and why Bochy did not run for Posey

Want some good news, Giants fans? Yusmeiro Petit is property of the Giants for another two seasons, eligible for free agency after 2016. If you don’t realize how clutch Petit was, how valuable it is to have a guy who can start, or enter in the 12th and pitch six shutout innings, here’s Buster Posey to tell you. “I don’t think people understand how hard it is to pitch extra innings on the road,” Posey said. “Everything is magnified. One mistake, and the game is over. To go nine extra innings (as the bullpen did) without allowing a run is remarkable.” Petit didn’t just pitch...

What would the Rays playoff rotation look like?

There's a noticeable trend in playoff rotations this October, and that's a twist on the three man rotation. Scheduling has allowed all the teams thus far to roll with only three starters, giving room for the presumable fourth starter to slot into the bullpen. The strategy has paid off for most. Whether it be Anibal Sanchez, Kevin Gausman, Danny Duffy, Yusmeiro Petit, or Tanner Roark - we've seen plenty and more starters convert to relief, and each for their own reasons. Sanchez moved from a depth perspective, with the three Cy Youngs already getting the nod. Gausmann from an innings limit...

Giants’ Yusmeiro Petit provides plenty of relief

Yusmeiro Petit joined the Giants’ rotation in late August and started every fifth day until the end of the season. In each of his final two starts, Petit made it through just 5 1/3 innings. Coming out of the bullpen, he fared much better in his stellar six-inning relief performance Saturday night in Game 2 of […]

Giants bullpen aces Nats: 'There was literally no room for error'

Game 2 of the NLDS took many twists and turns before Yusmeiro Petit even entered. Once he did, the Giants reliever stayed and conquered.
