[edit] Biographical Information

Gregorio Petit was signed by scout Julio Franco for the Oakland A's in July 2001. He made his pro debut with the DSL Athletics West the next summer.

Petit went 2 for 3 in his major league debut for the Oakland Athletics on May 18, and then picked up a hit in each of his team's next three games while filling in for an injured Mark Ellis. A shortstop in the minors, Petit was used at second base in place of regular back-up Donnie Murphy, as manager Bob Geren wanted to capitalize on Petit's hot bat at the time the A's were struggling. He ended going 8 for 23 (.348) in 14 games.
