Pirates' Dillon Peters: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Peters (back) has resumed throwing, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a lower-back strain, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: May rejoin rotation Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM Ben Cherington said Peters (back) could return from the injured list to start Tuesday versus the Tigers, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Peters landed on the shelf Aug. 28 with a strained lower back, and Tuesday would be the first day he's eligible to be activated. If he's able to start, the left-hander shouldn't face significant workload limitations given the brevity of his absence.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Lands on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters was placed on the 10-day injured list with a lower back strain Saturday.

Peters started against the Cardinals on Friday and allowed three runs on six hits while striking out four in five innings to take the loss. However, he apparently sustained a back injury and will miss at least one turn through the rotation as a result. It's not yet clear when the southpaw will be able to return.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Allows three runs in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (0-2) picked up the loss pitching five innings while allowing three runs on six hits with four strikeouts in a loss to St. Louis on Friday.

The left-hander posted a solid first four innings before running into trouble in the fifth surrendering a two-run home run to Tommy Edman. Only the third start of the season for Peters, the southpaw now carries a 3.07 ERA into his next start likely against the Cubs.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Stymies Cards for five innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Cardinals after limiting St. Louis to one run over five innings. He scattered three hits and one walk and struck out three.

Making his second start with the Pirates, Peters wasn't overpowering -- he generated only four swings and misses among his 54 strikes -- but he managed the zone well and was mostly able to mitigate the damage of balls in play. With Pirates manager Derek Shelton recently moving Chad Kuhl to the bullpen, Peters looks like he'll have a decent amount of leash as a member of the Pittsburgh rotation. He lines up to make his next start next weekend in a rematch with the Cardinals in Pittsburgh.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Will keep rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Derek Shelton said Sunday after the Pirates' 2-1 loss to the Brewers that Peters will remain in the Pittsburgh rotation for at least one more turn, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Peters was summoned from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday and stepped in as a replacement for starter Bryse Wilson, who was moved to the 10-day injured list with general fatigue. The 28-year-old lefty took the loss in his Pirates debut, but he did well to limit the Brewers to two runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks over 4.2 innings. Peters tentatively lines up to make his next start Saturday in St. Louis.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Takes loss in Pittsburgh debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (0-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts in 4.2 innings, taking the loss Sunday versus Milwaukee.

The southpaw made his first major-league appearance of 2021, but he wasn't very effective. Peters was let down by his defense in the first inning, and he gave up an RBI double to Christian Yelich in the third. The 28-year-old could remain in the rotation while Bryse Wilson (general soreness) is on the shelf, but Peters isn't likely to have much fantasy relevance on a subpar Pittsburgh team. His next turn through the rotation is tentatively scheduled for next weekend in St. Louis.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Activated for start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates called up Peters from Triple-A Indianapolis prior to his scheduled start Sunday against the Brewers, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

Pittsburgh moved Bryse Wilson (general soreness) to the 10-day IL in a corresponding move, and Peters will presumably step in as a replacement in the rotation while the former is sidelined. Over 132.2 career innings in the majors, Peters owns a 5.83 ERA and 6.9 K/9.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Starting Sunday vs. Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters will start Sunday's game against the Brewers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

He threw five innings Aug. 7 at Triple-A but has not pitched more than three innings in any other appearance since going six innings July 10. All told, Peters has a 3.71 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 53.1 innings through 13 appearances at Triple-A. It's unclear if he will be making a spot start or if he could stick in the rotation going forward.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Joining big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters was recalled by the Pirates on Friday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Peters has shown very little in 132.2 career major-league innings (24 starts and seven relief appearances), struggling to a 5.83 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with just a 16.7 percent strikeout rate. It looks as though he's up as a reliever for his first opportunity with his new team, after being acquired from the Angels in mid-July in a trade for cash considerations.

Pirates' Dillon Peters: Traded to Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters was traded from the Angels to the Pirates on Monday in exchange for cash considerations.

Peters was designated for assignment by the Angels on Wednesday, but he'll land another spot on a 40-man roster going forward. The southpaw posted a 4.35 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 41.1 innings across eight starts at Triple-A Salt Lake to begin the year, and he's been assigned to Triple-A Indianapolis going forward. Right-hander Kyle Crick was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

July 14, 2021 06:20 PM
Angels' Dillon Peters: DFA'd by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels designated Peters for assignment Wednesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Peters had already been optioned June 29, but now he is removed from the 40-man roster to make room for the newly acquired Adam Eaton. The lefty has never posted a sub-5.00 ERA in a big-league season, so it seems unlikely he'll attract much attention on waivers.

Angels' Dillon Peters: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels optioned Peters to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.

The southpaw didn't appear in a game after being recalled Sunday, making it two stints on the big-league roster this season without throwing a single pitch. Peters has a 5.52 ERA with 11 home runs allowed in 31 minor-league innings in 2021, though he does have a respectable 40:8 K:BB. James Hoyt was recalled in a corresponding move.

June 27, 2021 01:24 PM
Angels' Dillon Peters: Recalled to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

Peters briefly joined the Angels in mid-May but did not make an appearance before being sent back to Salt Lake. The reliever has posted a 5.52 ERA and 40:8 K:BB across 31 Triple-A innings and will now join the Angels bullpen.
