Mets' David Peterson: Early exit in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Diamondbacks, giving up three runs on three hits and three walks over 1.2 innings while striking out three.

After a scoreless first inning, the southpaw's control deserted him in the second as the final four batters he faced all reached base via a walk or a hit by pitch. Peterson has issued multiple free passes in four straight starts and five of six this season, and he'll carry a 5.54 ERA and 32:11 K:BB through 26 innings into his next outing.

Mets' David Peterson: Strong in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out eight across five innings in the win over the Phillies on Sunday. He did not factor in the decision.

Peterson's only run allowed was a leadoff solo home run by Andrew McCutchen to start the game. After that, Peterson settled in to record more strikeouts (8) than hits (3) and walks (2) combined. Despite having three starts allowing two or less runs, he only has one win this season. The 25-year-old has a 4.81 ERA and has surrendered a team-high five home runs in 24.1 innings.

Mets' David Peterson: Takes loss despite quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (1-3) took the loss Tuesday, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks over six innings as the Mets fell 2-1 to the Red Sox. He struck out three.

The left-hander was solid in his second quality start of the season, tossing 60 of 92 pitches for strikes, but he got the Jacob deGrom treatment from the Mets' offense. Homers have been an issue in the early going for Peterson as he's served up four in only 19.1 innings, fueling a 5.59 ERA and undermining a strong 21:7 K:BB. He'll look for a better result in his next outing Sunday in Philadelphia.

Mets' David Peterson: Falls apart in fourth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (1-2) allowed six runs (three earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out three over 3.1 innings as he took the loss against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Peterson started out fantastic after retiring the first 10 batters he saw in order but completely fell apart thereafter. The 25-year-old let up his first hit of the game on an infield single by Willson Contreras with one out in the fourth and just could not get out of his own way afterward. He eventually loaded the bases only to end up walking in a run to tie the game up at 2-2 and then was punished by David Bote on a two-run single to shallow right to put the Cubs up 4-2. He exited the ballgame and was hit with two more runs to his final line after Robert Gsellman was unable to keep the inherited runners from scoring after relieving Peterson. It's been an up-and-down start to the year for the left-hander. He's had one very good start sandwiched between a pair of bad ones as his ERA now sits at a 6.75 heading into his next start against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Mets' David Peterson: Fans 10 in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (1-1) picked up the win Wednesday in a 5-1 victory over the Phillies, giving up one run on two hits over six innings while striking out 10.

The young southpaw was in firm control, tying his career high in strikeouts, and he made only one real mistake that Jean Segura launched over the fence in the fifth inning. Peterson threw 57 of 80 pitches for strikes in his first quality start of the year, but after a rough season debut he'll still carry a 6.30 ERA into his next outing, set for April 21 on the road against the Cubs.

Mets' David Peterson: Monday's contest called off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson won't start against the Phillies on Monday since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Although Peterson won't be able to make his second start of the season Monday, he'll only have to wait until Wednesday before taking the mound again, DiComo reports. The southpaw took the loss in his season debut against Philadelphia, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five in four-plus innings.

Mets' David Peterson: Rough season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (0-1) took the loss Wednesday as the Mets fell 8-2 to the Phillies, coughing up six runs on seven hits and two walks over four-plus innings. He struck out five.

The southpaw got his 2021 off to a shaky start as he served up first-inning homers to Rhys Hoskins and Alec Bohm, but Peterson regained his focus and blanked the Phillies over the next three frames before running out of steam in the fifth. He threw 54 of 78 pitches for strikes, but with five of the seven hits off him going for extra bases, Peterson's issue was command within the zone and not simply getting the ball over the plate. He'll get a chance for revenge against the Phillies in his next scheduled outing at home Monday.

Mets' David Peterson: Draws start in opening series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is scheduled to start Sunday in the finale of the Mets' season-opening series with the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Peterson looked as though he would have to battle Joey Lucchesi for the fifth starter's role early in camp, but spots opened up for both pitchers after Carlos Carrasco suffered a hamstring tear that will sideline him into May. The lefty will now have at least the first month of the season to solidify a permanent spot in the rotation. The 3.44 ERA and 1.21 WHIP he submitted over his 10 outings as a rookie last season were strong on the surface, but most underlying numbers (7.8 K-BB%, 5.11 xFIP) painted a less rosy picture of his performance. He'll likely need to miss more bats or hope for continued good luck on balls in play in order to deliver another sub-4.00 ERA season in 2021.

Mets' David Peterson: Near lock for rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is very likely to break camp in the rotation, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Peterson always seemed likely to open the year in the rotation, as he spent most of last season there and acquitted himself well, though his 19.5 percent strikeout rate and 11.7 percent walk rate didn't come close to backing up his 3.44 ERA. Carlos Carrasco's hamstring issue means there are now two spots available for some combination of Peterson, Joey Lucchesi and Jordan Yamamoto, and it would be a surprise if Peterson was the odd man out among that group. Lucchesi and Yamamoto combined to throw 17 major-league innings last year, giving up 28 earned runs.

Mets' David Peterson: Strong in spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson allowed one hit and hit a batter across two scoreless innings Thursday against the Nationals.

Peterson threw 26 pitches in his spring debut and was largely sharp. He labored a bit in the first frame -- hitting a batter and then allowing a two-out double -- but got out of the jam. Peterson then rebounded in the second inning to retire the side in order. Though he's the favorite to begin the season as the Mets' fifth starter, Peterson will have to beat out Joey Lucchesi, Sean Reid-Foley and Jordan Yamamoto for the role.

Mets' David Peterson: Competing for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson may not begin the season in the rotation due to workload concerns and the Mets' offseason additions, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Peterson was excellent in the 2020 campaign, pitching primarily as a starter and posting a 3.44 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and a 40:24 K:BB across 49.2 innings. However, his relatively low workload could convince the Mets to start him in the bullpen or minor leagues. While his workload will be monitored regardless of his role with the club, Peterson will have the chance to compete with Joey Lucchesi, Jordan Yamamoto, Jerad Eickhoff and Sean Reid-Foley for a spot in the rotation.

Mets' David Peterson: Closes out season with sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' David Peterson: Fans career-high 10 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' David Peterson: Start pushed to Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' David Peterson: Handed loss vs. Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' David Peterson: Starting series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' David Peterson: Crushed by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson allowed five earned runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three across two innings Monday against the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.

Peterson battled his control in the short outing, hitting and walking a batter in the first inning -- which led to three earned runs. The next frame, he walked the second batter he faced prior to serving a two-run homer to Rhys Hoskins. It was a disastrous start for Peterson, after he briefly was shifted to a bullpen role. He'll look to bounce back in his next outing, currently projected to come Sunday at Toronto.

Mets' David Peterson: Moving back into rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will return to the rotation to start Monday against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Peterson moved to the bullpen earlier in the weekend, though the arrangement was evidently a very temporary one, as he'll return to the rotation after pitching just once in relief. Peterson has been a useful arm for the Mets in 29.2 innings this season, posting a 3.03 ERA, though his 17.4 percent strikeout rate and 10.7 percent walk rate indicate some regression could be coming.

Mets' David Peterson: Earns win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (4-1) earned the win Wednesday in Baltimore after allowing two hits with one strikeout and two walks over four scoreless innings.

The 25-year-old made one start after returning from the injured list last week before getting shifted to the bullpen, but he ended up grabbing the win in his first outing as a reliever. Peterson has a 3.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 29.2 innings this season, though his 21:13 K:BB leaves something to be desired. He'll be unavailable for the next few days after throwing 59 pitches.

Mets' David Peterson: Moving to 'pen for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday and is not scheduled to start either of the Mets' next two games, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Peterson owns a strong 3.51 ERA through the first five starts of his big-league career, though his 18.9 percent strikeout rate and 10.4 percent walk rate are both fairly poor. He wasn't great in his first start back from shoulder inflammation Friday, allowing three runs in four innings against the Yankees. It's possible the rookie moves back into the rotation at some point in the near future, pushing either Robert Gsellman or Seth Lugo, who began the year in the pen, back to their original roles, but it will be Gsellman, rather than Peterson, who starts against the Yankees on Thursday.
