YUSMEIRO PETIT RUMORS

Yusmeiro Petit’s latest feat: 84-pitch complete game

Last season Yusmeiro Petit missed throwing a perfect game by one batter. Last month he set the all-time record for consecutive batters retired with 46. And last night he threw an 84-pitch complete game. Not bad for a 29-year-old former prospect bust turned journeyman turned rotation regular for the Giants, who’ve gotten a 3.61 ERA in 152 total innings from Petit. In holding the...

After Wade Miley...

San Francisco Giants Yusmeiro Petit sets amazing record

Record-Making Weirdness

Yusmeiro Petit now owns a pretty solid Major League Baseball record. Yusmeiro Petit. One day, I’ll tell my kid I saw Yusmeiro Petit pitch.  She’ll say “Who?”  I’ll tell a guy in my fantasy football league in New York in three days that I saw Yusmeiro Petit pitch, and he’ll say the same thing. He has a career 4.84 ERA.  This year, at 29, is his first spending a full...

A Good Reason To Watch Yusmeiro Petit Pitch

The Giants can take no more. Well into Tim Lincecum‘s third straight year of mediocrity — since the start of 2012, he’s got a 134 ERA- and 114 FIP- – and most of the way through the first year of his 2/$35m extension signed last winter, San Francisco will skip him in the rotation and instead […]

San Francisco Giants: first base and outfield options

The San Francisco Giants are heading into the offseason with a ton of things they need to do. They need to re-sign Hunter Pence, Tim Lincecum and Javier Lopez, as well as bring back Chad Gaudin and Ryan Vogelsong. They also need to add a starting left-fielder and possibly another starting pitcher. That’s a lot of things that the Giants have on their table. Whether or not they can...

Giants P just misses perfect game
