Giants officially add Moscoso, drop Petit

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants activated pitcher Guillermo Moscoso before Sunday's series finale against the Cubs and designated right-hander Yusmeiro Petit for assignment.

The Giants acquired Moscoso from the Cubs on Friday in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations. He has not pitched in the Majors this season, but spent parts of the past four seasons in the big leagues with Texas, Oakland and Colorado, with a career 4.16 ERA in 57 games.

For Chicago's Triple-A affiliate this season, Moscoso went 7-5 with a 3.93 ERA.

"It's a good feeling that I'm here," Moscoso said. "I know pretty much all the guys, and I want to help the team win."
