The 6'4" right-hander has a 5.07 ERA with 6.7 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 60 1/3 innings at Triple-A. Pucetas, a 17th round pick of the Giants in 2006, has a 3.85 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 in six seasons as a minor league starter. However, the 26-year-old has yet to post an ERA below 5.00 in three seasons at Triple-A.
