Former Mets farmhand Petit unsung hero for Giants | New York Post

Yusmeiro Petit had a very good year and is having a tremendous off-season. Will it be good enough to get him a starting spot next year?

Jim Duquette remembers the debates in the Mets’ front office. Yusmeiro Petit was dominating minor league hitters, but doing it with stuff that did not overwhelm.
“We couldn’t get a consensus,” Duquette said recalling his days as the Mets’ assistant general manager. “He is getting everyone out, but doing it with an 88-90 mph fastball. We called it an invisi-ball. Is he a No. 1, a No. 2 or just another guy?”
Finally, Omar Minaya, then the Mets’ GM, said the club came to peace that Petit was a back-end starter because his “velocity was short.”
