Peterson (6-2) allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out four over seven innings in a win over the Nationals on Thursday. His strikeout total fell back down after his 10-K gem against Atlanta last weekend, but Peterson was effective even without a lot of swing-and-miss, and he can hold his head high heading into the offseason after posting a 2.00 ERA in his final three outings. The lefty has been a bright spot for the Mets this season and should have the inside track on a rotation spot heading into spring training. Overall, Peterson turned in a 3.44 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 40:24 K:BB in 49.2 innings.
Peterson (5-2) struck out a career-high 10 batters to pick up the win in Saturday's 7-2 victory over Atlanta, allowing one run on three hits and four walks over six innings. The 25-year-old rookie hadn't fanned more than three batters in any of his previous six appearances, but Peterson took full advantage of Atlanta's over-eager bats Saturday. The southpaw will take a 3.80 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 36:23 K:BB through 42.2 innings into his final start of the regular season, Thursday on the road against the Nationals.
Peterson will start Saturday's game against the Braves, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. The 25-year-old previously lined up to start Friday's series opener, but the Mets wanted to provided him an extra rest day. Peterson has a 4.17 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 26:19 K:BB through 36.2 innings this season. Steven Matz is set to start Friday's contest.
Peterson (4-2) took the loss Sunday against Toronto, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks across five innings. He struck out two. Peterson was coming off a rough outing against the Phillies in which he allowed five runs over just two innings. Though he took the loss Sunday, it was a much better showing for the left-hander. He allowed a two-run homer to Lourdes Gurriel in the second but managed to keep the Jays off the board over the next three innings. Peterson will take a 4.17 ERA and a 4-2 record into his start against the Braves on Friday.
Peterson will start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays in Buffalo. After a one-game cameo in the bullpen, Peterson moved back into the rotation Sept. 7 and was lit up by the Phillies, giving up five runs on three hits and four walks in two innings. The Mets don't have many other appealing starting options to turn to, so Peterson will be given the opportunity to try and bounce back against the Blue Jays.
