Petit, who's logged 59 starts in his major-league career, is preparing for this season as if he were a member of the rotation, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "I run every day and run the stairs, working like how I used to do before starts," Petit said before Saturday's workout at the Coliseum. "I have to be ready for two or three innings so I'm working like a starter. Keeping my arm in shape by playing catch every day and long toss."
