News: Petit has been replaced in the rotation by Jake Peavy, who will start Sunday in his Giants debut, CSN Bay Area's Amy Gutierrez reports. Impact: Peavy was acquired Saturday from Boston in exchange for prospects, and it was clear that Petit would be the one moving out of the rotation and back to the bullpen. He has a 2.45 ERA in 36.2 innings as a reliever this season, which is far better than the 6.32 ERA he has posted as a starter.(RotoWire, )

News: Petit surrendered five earned runs on seven hits and two walks in a five innings against the Phillies on Tuesday. He struck out five and did not receive a decision. Impact: The 29-year-old was in line for the win with a 3-2 lead heading into the fifth before a bomb by Jimmy Rollins and a double by Marlon Byrd leapfrogged the Phillies ahead, 5-3. Petit's ERA is 4.24 to go with a 3-3 record and 1.21 WHIP. He should continue to round out the Giants rotation in the No. 5 spot as long as Matt Cain (elbow) is sidelined.(RotoWire, )

News: Petit will remain in the rotation as long as Matt Cain (elbow) is out, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Petit will start Tuesday's game against the Phillies after Cain was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday due to elbow inflammation. An MRI on Cain's elbow revealed no structural damage, although the Giants haven't released a timetable for him to begin throwing again. As long as his return date remains unknown, consider Petit the Giants' fifth starter indefinitely. The right-hander owns a 3.86 ERA and 1.16 WHIP, to go along with a 66:15 K:BB ratio over 63 innings this year as both a starter and reliever. He could be worth a look in the short term in deeper and NL-only formats.(RotoWire, )

News: Petit will start in place of Matt Cain (elbow) Tuesday against the Phillies. Impact: Petit will start in place of Matt Cain (elbow), who was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday afternoon. Since Cain was placed on the DL retroactive to July 11, there's a chance he could only miss one turn, leaving Petit's time in the rotation once again short-lived. The right-handed Petit owns a 3.86 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 63 innings this season, most of which have came as a reliever.(RotoWire, )
