Petit sent down to the Minors

Yusmeiro Petit was optioned to Albuquerque after yesterday's game.  Fulling the wish of Hinz57er, as expressed, in his diary.

Following Sunday's win, reliever Yusmeiro Petit was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque. Petit last pitched on June 5, logging three innings at San Francisco. Expected to be brought up from Albuquerque is right-handed pitcher Jeff Fulchino. Fulchino will become the 19th rookie on the Marlins' roster this season.

This is a good thing.  Petit, at this point in his career, needs the innings.  Something he wasn't getting with the big club.  Petit will one day be a starter and him sitting on a plastic chair in the bullpen wasn't helping anyone.

While Jeff Fulchino is very welcomed aboard, he isn't expected to take much more of a roll than mop up duty while he is with the Marlins.
