Description: Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit pitched seven innings and allowed three earned runs, but he fell victim to Clayton Kershaw.

Description: Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit will make another start for the Giants on Tuesday against the Rockies.
Insight: Giants manager Bruce Bochy will more than likely ride out Petit's hot streak by keeping him in the starting rotation. If he pitches well in the hitter-friendly Coors Field, then we expect him to keep Tim Lincecum's spot in the rotation for the rest of the season.

Description: Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit started on Thursday in place of Tim Lincecum and went six innings yielding four hits and one run with nine strikeouts.

Description: Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit started on Thursday in place of Tim Lincecum. Petit came into the game having retired his last 38 batters over the course of seven relief appearances. Petit retired the first eight batters to set a new major league record of 46 straight hitters retired. who has thrown 12 1/3 perfect innings in a row while striking out 16 batters in that span, will replace Tim Lincecum in the rotation.
Insight: Petit went on to pitch six innings and gave up one run in the Giants victory. Despite breaking the record, Petit is not guaranteed to start again, so his fantasy value remains limited. We expect that he will get at least one more chance to start, but check back in the next few days to make sure.

Description: Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit, who has thrown 12 1/3 perfect innings in a row while striking out 16 batters in that span, will replace Tim Lincecum in the rotation.
Insight: Petit last started on July 22 and allowed five runs on seven hits in five innings at Philadelphia. He has a 6.32 ERA in six starts and a 1.83 ERA over 27 relief appearances this season, so there's little reason to get excited about him in most leagues.

Description: Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit pitched well in Saturday's loss to St. Louis.
Insight: Petit (3-3, 4.60 ERA) kept San Francisco in the game by allowing two hits and one run over six innings. He should get at least a few more turns in the starting rotation while Matt Cain recovers from a strained hamstring.

Description: San Francisco right-hander Yusmeiro Petit pitched well in an emergency start Tuesday against the Padres.
Insight: Petit (6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 4 K's) was filling in for Matt Cain, who had to sit out with an injured finger. It was probably a one-time thing for Petit, as Cain is expected to make his next start. Petit (2-1, 2.61 ERA) made seven starts for the Giants during the 2013 season.
