Peters was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday Peters was called up from Salt Lake on Tuesday and allowed one run on three hits and three walks over three innings during his brief major-league stint. The 26-year-old was demoted to make room on the 25-man roster for right-hander Luke Bard.
Peters has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Tuesday's game against Texas, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Peters was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday. Peters was never more than a long shot at best to break camp in the Angels' rotation. Even with Andrew Heaney's availability now in doubt due to elbow irritation, Peters is no longer involved in the competition. It may take an injury or two more for him to get his chance.
Peters is scheduled to start Saturday's Cactus League opener against the Giants, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Peters, who was claimed off waivers by the Angels earlier in the offseason, will open up spring action for his new team. The southpaw is expected to serve as rotation depth in 2019 after struggling across seven appearances (five starts) for the Marlins in 2018 (7.16 ERA and 17:15 K:BB in 27.2 innings).
The Marlins will trade Peters to the Angles in exchange for Tyler Stevens, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Peters was designated for assignment by Miami earlier this week as part of the Rule 5 roster crunch. He is expected to serve as rotation depth for Los Angeles and will likely ride the shuttle back and forth as needed since he's got minor-league options remaining. Across seven game (five starts) for the Marlins in 2018, he logged a 7.16 ERA and 1.77 WHIP with a 17:15 K:BB in 27.2 innings.
