Peterson was excellent in the 2020 campaign, pitching primarily as a starter and posting a 3.44 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and a 40:24 K:BB across 49.2 innings. However, his relatively low workload could convince the Mets to start him in the bullpen or minor leagues. While his workload will be monitored regardless of his role with the club, Peterson will have the chance to compete with Joey Lucchesi, Jordan Yamamoto, Jerad Eickhoff and Sean Reid-Foley for a spot in the rotation.
