Peters is one of about a dozen pitchers auditioning this spring for a spot in a Miami rotation that lacks any true Opening Day locks beyond Dan Straily and Jose Urena. As a result, the lefty, who is scheduled to toss two innings Friday, may need to distinguish himself during his Grapefruit League outings in order to gain separation from the rest of the pack. After delivering sub-2.00 ERAs across stops at High-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville last season, Peters earned the call to the big leagues in September and made six starts for the Marlins, registering a 5.17 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 31.1 innings.
Peters (1-2) pitched 5.2 scoreless innings with four strikeouts to take the win against Atlanta on Thursday. He allowed two hits and four walks.
Peters has flashed some upside through his six starts in the majors this year, but with a 5.17 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 7.8 K/9, he won't be a fantasy priority in many settings heading into the 2018 season. Still, the 25-year-old lefty skipped the Triple-A level entirely en route to Miami, so with more seasoning in the minors, he could resurface as a serviceable asset sooner than later.
Peters allowed five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out a single batter through four innings during Saturday's win over Arizona. He didn't factor into the decision.
This was the fifth start of the season for Peters, and he's now allowed 18 runs through 18.2 innings through his past four outings. The 25-year-old lefty is up to a 6.31 ERA, and 1.75 WHIP for the season, so his fantasy appeal is extremely limited at this stage of the game. Peters projects to make his final start of the season against Atlanta at Marlins Park.
Peters surrendered eight runs on nine hits and three walks over 3.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.
Peters managed to work three scoreless innings during Sunday's contest, but a two-out walk to the opposing pitcher started a parade of hits leading to eight runs that led to his departure without completing the frame. The short outing skyrocketed his ERA to 5.40 on the season, though he did manage to strike out four before exiting. Peters' next scheduled start arrives Saturday on the road at Arizona.
Peters didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's extra-inning loss to the Phillies, allowing two runs on six hits and four walks over six innings while striking out four.
He's been impressive through his first three big-league starts this September, posting a 2.50 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 18:9 K:BB in 18 innings. The 25-year-old Peters has positioned himself to compete for a regular spot in the Marlins' rotation next spring, but first he'll face the Brewers at home Sunday.
