  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Chased in first inning

    Peters (3-2) allowed five runs in four hits and a walk while taking a loss against the Cubs on Monday. He recorded two outs.

    Peters gave up two runs and loaded the bases before he was relieved in favor of Bryse Wilson. He would get charged with three more runs as all of the runners he left on base came around to score during the Cubs' eight-run first inning. Peters saw his season ERA jump from 1.83 to 3.98 through 20.1 frames.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Gets starting nod Monday

    Peters is listed as the Pirates' starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Cubs.

    Peters is presumably serving as an opener or tandem starter in front of Bryse Wilson, who should step in for the lefty in the middle innings. Over his 10 appearances (three starts) this season, Peters hasn't recorded more than 10 outs, so the Pirates will likely pull him well before the Chicago lineup turns over a third time.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Three shutout innings

    Peters allowed two hits and struck out two across three scoreless innings Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Peters served as the opener and rebounded from the four-run drubbing he received in his last outing. He served as an opener for the third time this season, and he's turned in 8.1 scoreless innings in the role. Peters has a strong 1.83 ERA across 19.2 frames to begin the campaign, though his 15:9 K:BB provides a less optimistic outlook for his future results.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Will work as opener Wednesday

    Pirates manager Derek Shelton said Peters will serve as an opener in Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Jake Crouse of reports.

    Pittsburgh is likely to treat the series finale with the Dodgers as a bullpen day, with Peters being the first pitcher used in his third outing of the season as an opener. He faltered during his most recent relief appearance Sunday against the Reds, serving up four runs while failing to record an out. However, he turned in his best outing of the season the last time he was deployed as an opener May 4, when he struck out four over 3.1 scoreless innings against Detroit.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Strong as opener again

    Peters allowed one hit and one walk while striking out four across 3.1 scoreless innings in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Tigers. He did not factor into the decision.

    Peters served as the opener, with Bryse Wilson working behind him in a piggyback appearance. This was the second time that Peters has preceded Wilson in this role, the first coming in a two-inning stint on April 27. The appearance continued Peters' strong start to the season, as he has yet to allow an earned run across 16.2 frames while striking out 13 and walking six.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Opening again

    Peters will start the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Tigers, though he'll likely be merely an opener, Alex Stumpf of reports.

    Bryse Wilson was scheduled to start Tuesday before the game got postponed, so he's expected to follow Peters on Wednesday. Peters has yet to give up a run in 13.1 innings so far this season.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Excels as opener

    Peters allowed one walk and did not record a strikeout across two innings Wednesday against the Brewers. He did not factor into the decision.

    Peters has begun the 2022 season in a bulk-relief role for Pittsburgh, regularly working at least two innings in his appearances. However, he drew the start Wednesday, with Bryse Wilson following him. Peters has yet to allow an earned run across 12.1 innings this season, though he has only an 8:5 K:BB. It's possible that the team looks to build him up to a traditional rotation role, but it appears more likely that his appearance to begin the game Wednesday was an effort to get Wilson on track.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Starting Wednesday

    Peters is starting Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Bryse Wilson was initially slated to take the mound for Pittsburgh on Wednesday, but the 24-year-old was scratched from the start for an unspecified reason. Peters' first five appearances of the season came as a reliever, and he struck out eight in 10.1 scoreless innings while picking up three wins. The southpaw threw 2.2 innings during Sunday's win over the Cubs, so he's unlikely to be able to handle a full workload Wednesday.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Three shutout innings

    Peters allowed one walk while striking out three without surrendering a hit or a run across three innings Monday against Milwaukee.

    Peters entered the game in the fifth inning, after Zach Thompson was roughed up for six earned runs. He delivered three strong innings as a bulk reliever out of the bullpen and now has seven scoreless frames of work across his three appearances on the season. Peters served as a starter for Pittsburgh in 2021, and it's possible he returns to that role at some point in the new campaign.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Picks up relief win

    Peters (2-0) earned the win in relief Saturday against the Nationals after tossing two scoreless innings, walking two.

    Peters has made two relief appearances this season and has come out with the win while hurling two frames in each one. His command wasn't sharp in this one, though, as he tossed only 10 of his 23 pitches for strikes, and in fact, he has posted a 2:3 K:BB so far this season -- albeit in a very limited sample size of four innings.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Set to pitch Sunday

    Peters (back) is scheduled to start Sunday's spring game against the Blue Jays, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Peters ended 2021 on the injured list with a strained lower back, but he's ready to go early in spring training for Pittsburgh. The 29-year-old was acquired by the Pirates at the trade deadline last year and pitched well in six starts with a 3.71 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 23:10 K:BB across 26.2 frames. He's a strong bet to begin 2022 in the starting rotation.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Peters (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Peters was already ruled out for the season after landing on the 10-day IL late last week, and the move to the 60-day IL is just a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. The 29-year-old recently resumed throwing and should have plenty of time to build back to full strength for spring training.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Resumes throwing

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Peters (back) has resumed throwing, Kevin Gorman of reports.

    Peters landed on the 10-day injured list with a lower-back strain last week, and he won't have enough time to ramp up his workload prior to the end of the regular season. The southpaw's injury carries a recovery timetable of approximately three weeks, so he should have a fairly normal offseason. Peters made six starts in the big leagues this year and recorded a 3.71 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 26.2 innings.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Out with back strain

    Peters was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a lower-back strain, Alex Stumpf of reports.

    Peters apparently suffered the injury during Monday's start against the Reds, when he gave up four runs on four hits with three strikeouts and two walks. The left-hander will be eligible to return before the end of the season (assuming the move is retroactive), though it's unclear if he's expected to be activated for one final start in 2021.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Chased after three

    Peters pitched three innings, giving up four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three in Monday's loss to the Reds. He did not factor into the decision.

    The 29-year-old surrendered all four runs in the third inning. He gave up a two-RBI double to Nick Castellanos and then a two-run home run to Joey Votto. It was the first time in six starts that Peters allowed more than three runs. After entering Monday with a 2.66 ERA, he now owns 3.71 ERA through 26.2 innings. His next start is projected to be Saturday versus the Phillies.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Tosses five scoreless frames

    Peters (1-2) earned the win Tuesday after firing five shutout innings against the Reds. He allowed five hits and a walk while striking out five.

    Peters blanked his opponent for the first time this season en route to picking up his first win. The southpaw used just 39 pitches to shut out the Reds on no hits or walks through the first three innings and cruised from there. It's a small sample, but Peters has been solid in five starts this year, pitching to the tune of a 2.66 ERA across 23.2 innings despite a 1.67 WHIP. The 29-year-old tentatively lines up for a road start Sunday at Miami.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Fans five no-decision

    Peters allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out five across four innings during Tuesday's win against the Tigers. He did not factor into the decision.

    Peters, who was activated off the injured list ahead of Tuesday's start, missed the minimum 10 days with back troubles. The 29-year-old experienced a troublesome third inning during which he allowed an RBI triple to Derek Hill and an RBI single to Robbie Grossman. Otherwise, Peters held things together enough to align the Pirates for an eventual win. Since getting called up from Triple-A Indianapolis, the southpaw has compiled a 3.38 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 18.2 innings.

  • Pirates' Dillon Peters: Activated ahead of start

    Peters (back) was activated off the injured list Tuesday and will start against the Tigers.

    Peters wound up missing the minimum 10 days while battling a back issue. He was effective in three starts prior to the injury, recording a 3.07 ERA and 1.23 WHIP, though he struck out just 15.9 percent of opposing batters.
