  • Mets' David Peterson: Optioned to Triple-A

    Peterson was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday.

    Peterson started the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against Atlanta and allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out six in five innings. He has a 1.89 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 19 innings over four appearances (three starts) in the majors this year and will be a strong candidate to step in if the Mets need a spot starter at some point.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Snags first win of season

    Peterson (1-0) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against Atlanta, giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out six.

    A three-run blast by Matt Olson in the fifth inning accounted for most of the damage off Peterson, but the Mets had already built a 5-1 lead and Atlanta couldn't find a tying run. The southpaw has pitched well enough to stay in the rotation, posting a 1.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB through 19 innings in the majors this season, but it's not clear what the Mets' plans are for the 26-year-old after the twin bill.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Starts first game of twin bill

    Peterson was called up from Triple-A Syracuse and will start the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with Atlanta.

    Manager Buck Showalter previously relayed Monday that Peterson would be summoned from the minors to make a start during the doubleheader, though the skipper didn't specify whether the southpaw would get the ball in Game 1 or Game 2. Peterson will ultimately oppose Charlie Morton in the afternoon affair, while Carlos Carrasco takes the hill for the Mets in the nightcap. Before being demoted to Syracuse on April 23, Peterson made three appearances (two starts) for the Mets, working 14 innings while giving up one earned run on nine hits and five walks.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Returning for doubleheader

    Peterson will be recalled to start one half of Tuesday's doubleheader against Atlanta, though the Mets have yet to specify which game, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Peterson has made two starts and one relief appearance for the Mets this season, allowing just one run on nine hits in 14 innings of work despite an unimpressive 18.9 percent strikeout rate. Trevor Williams picked up the team's most recent spot start in late April, but it looks as though Peterson will be the preferred option Tuesday.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Sent to Triple-A

    Peterson was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Peterson allowed just one run over 5.2 innings in Friday's victory over the Diamondbacks -- the only run he has surrendered through 14 innings this season. However, with Peterson unavailable until sometime next week, the Mets decided to remove him from the roster and open up a spot for reliever Adonis Medina. Given how he has pitched thus far, Peterson's stay in the minors figures to be a short one.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Surrenders one run in no-decision

    Peterson didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 6-5 win over Arizona, allowing one run on three hits and a walk with three strikeouts in 5.2 innings.

    Pitching for a second straight time against the Diamondbacks, Peterson fared nearly as well despite surrendering his first run of the season but was left unsatisfied when the bullpen blew a four-run lead. The 26-year-old has now allowed just one run in 14 innings this season while permitting 14 baserunners compared to 10 strikeouts. With an off day next week, manager Buck Showalter has opted to skip Peterson though that decision is made more difficult by another successful turn.

  • Mets' David Peterson: First start of season

    Peterson pitched 4.1 scoreless innings, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out four in a 5-0 win Sunday against Arizona. He did not factor into the decision.

    Peterson did not allow a runner past second base in his first start of the season. The lefty wasn't exactly efficient, needing 80 pitches to get through 4.1 innings, but he got the job done. After not making the team out of spring training, the 26-year-old has pitched very well to start the season and has yet to allow a run in 8.1 innings. He is scheduled to start against the Diamondbacks again on Friday in Arizona.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Confirmed for Sunday's start

    Peterson will start Sunday against Arizona, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    The lefty is the seventh starter on the Mets' depth chart and didn't even make the Opening Day roster, but he'll be needed already in the 10th game of the season after Jacob deGrom and Taijuan Walker were sidelined with shoulder injuries. Peterson pitched four innings of scoreless relief after Walker exited his start Monday against the Phillies, so he's stretched out and on schedule for Sunday's outing. Through 24 career major-league starts and two relief appearances, Peterson owns a 4.49 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. He could get the chance to make multiple starts in place of Walker, who's expected to require a rehab outing.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Impressive relief effort Monday

    Peterson threw four scoreless innings in relief of Taijuan Walker (shoulder) during Monday's 5-4 loss to the Phillies, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out three.

    Walker left the game after two innings, forcing Peterson into the game with the Mets holding a 3-0 lead. The southpaw was sharp, tossing 32 of 58 pitches for strikes, and he was in line for the win until the bullpen fell apart late. If Walker is forced to miss additional time, something that should become clearer after he undergoes an MRI on Tuesday, Peterson figures to be next in line to take his spot in the rotation.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Joins active roster

    Peterson was recalled from the taxi squad Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Peterson was the team's final cut of spring training, but he'll be needed again right away with Edwin Diaz away on bereavement leave. Peterson may just be an extra bullpen arm for a few days until Diaz returns this time around, but he has the potential to enter the rotation later in the season if more Mets starters get injured.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Sent to minors

    The Mets optioned Peterson to Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.

    Peterson was the Mets' final cut of spring training. His demotion to the minors was foreshadowed Wednesday, when manager Buck Showalter confirmed that No. 5 starter Tylor Megill would get the ball in Thursday's season opener versus the Nationals. With ace Jacob deGrom (shoulder) beginning the season on the IL, Peterson looks to be viewed as the No. 7 starter on the organizational depth chart. The 26-year-old lefty will thus likely need at least two other members of the rotation to be sidelined before he gets a look as a starter with the big club.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Remains in mix for rotation

    Peterson could begin the season in the Mets' rotation despite giving up three home runs through 6.2 Grapefruit League innings.

    The southpaw's 6:2 K:BB this spring looks good, but keeping the ball in the park was a serious issue for Peterson in 2021, and it doesn't look like he's solved it yet. Still, with Jacob deGrom (shoulder) already ruled out to begin the season and Max Scherzer (hamstring) now day-to-day, Peterson could find himself in the Opening Day rotation, making him a roster option in deep mixed and NL-only formats.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Surgery completed

    Peterson revealed Tuesday via his personal Instagram account that he underwent surgery to repair a fractured bone in his right foot, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Assuming the procedure went as anticipated, Peterson will have a chance to make it back from the 60-day injured list at some point in September, but he likely won't have enough time to build back up for a starting role. Before suffering the toe injury, Peterson made 15 starts for the Mets, posting a 2-6 record, 5.54 ERA and 1.40 WHIP.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Set for foot surgery

    Peterson will undergo surgery to repair his broken right pinky toe, which could potentially end his season, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Peterson was working his way back from an oblique strain when he fractured his toe. The Mets haven't officially shut him down for the season, but the foot surgery typically requires 6-to-8 weeks to recover from. That takes him to at least the start of September, at which point he'll still have to go through a throwing program. If he returns at all, he may do so as a reliever given that he might not have time to build back up to a starter's workload.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Nursing broken toe

    Peterson was transferred to the 60-day IL due to a fractured right pinky toe, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    The lefty landed on the 10-day IL on July 2 with an oblique strain, but now the toe fracture will demand a more extended absence. It's unclear whether Peterson's oblique Is healed and he's only out due to the toe, or if he's dealing with both injuries. More details regarding his health and a possible return timeline should become available in the next couple weeks.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Peterson (oblique) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Peterson has been sidelined since July 2 due to an oblique strain, but he's been participating in a throwing program recently and is nearing his return to mound work. However, the southpaw will now be sidelined until early September following his shift to the 60-day IL. The move clears up a spot on the 40-man roster for Mark Payton, who was acquired from the Reds on Saturday.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Nearing mound work

    Mets manager Luis Rojas said Tuesday that Peterson (oblique) could start throwing off a mound as soon as this weekend, but the lefty remains "weeks away" from returning from the 10-day injured list, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Peterson resumed playing catch shortly before the All-Star break and will likely continue to stretch out his throwing distance for at least a few more days before stepping on a mound. Once that happens, he'll still likely need at least two weeks to fully ramp up for starting duty, making it difficult at this point to gauge a target date for his return. Fantasy managers shouldn't count on Peterson pitching for the Mets any earlier than mid-August.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Resumes light throwing

    Peterson (oblique) played catch Sunday for the first time since his injury, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Peterson has been sidelined since June 30 and has taken his first step towards a return to the mound. He's still expected to be sidelined for quite some time, however, as he was originally projected to miss just shy of eight weeks.
