Petit was designated for assignment by Minnesota.

He'll likely accept an assignment to Triple-A Rochester as it's unlikely another team will claim him. Petit provided a decent stopgap (hitting .308 in 26 AB) as a utility infielder while Miguel Sano was on the DL, but he isn't needed any longer. He may spend the rest of the season in the minors with Jorge Polanco nearing a return from an 80-game suspension.
