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.
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.
Peterson was diagnosed with an oblique strain Saturday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Peterson was placed on the 10-day injured list with what was initially described as right side soreness, but he's apparently dealing with an oblique issue. Manager Luis Rojas said that the severity is between Grade 1 and Grade 2, and the injury typically carries a recovery timetable of up to eight weeks. While the team's medical staff is optimistic that Peterson could return sooner than that, he'll likely miss extended time due to the injury.
Peterson (side) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday.
The left-hander was pulled from Wednesday's start versus Atlanta with soreness in his right side, and the severity of the injury remains unclear. Peterson will be eligible to return July 11, the last day before the All-Star break, though it's more likely he won't return until after the midseason festivities since that lines up as Jacob deGrom's turn through the rotation.
Mets manager Luis Rojas said Thursday that Peterson (side) won't make his next start, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Peterson was removed from Wednesday's start against Atlanta in the top of the fourth inning with right side soreness, and he's still experiencing tightness Thursday. He'll undergo further evaluations once the team returns to New York this weekend, but he'll miss at least one turn through the rotation and could require a trip to the injured list as a result. Rojas said that Corey Oswalt and Thomas Szapucki are candidates to start in Peterson's place, according to DiComo.
Peterson left Wednesday's start against Atlanta in the top of the fourth inning with right side soreness, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. He struck out two while being charged with six runs (five earned) on eight hits and one walk across three-plus innings.
Peterson wasn't sharp from the start of the game, allowing two runs in the first inning before allowing two more in the third. He departed with the injury after allowing a double and single to start the fourth and it was reported soon after that he was dealing with soreness in his right side. He'll be further evaluated before the Mets reveal the severity of the injury. He can be considered questionable to make his next start.
Peterson allowed a run on three hits and two walks over six innings in a loss to the Phillies in the second game of Friday's doubleheader. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.
Peterson cruised through five innings of scoreless baseball before serving up a solo shot to Bryce Harper in the sixth. It was his third straight outing giving up fewer than two runs, lowering his season ERA to 4.95 through 63.2 innings. He'll carry a 67:28 K:BB into next week's projected start in Atlanta.
Peterson allowed one run on two hits and a walk across 4.2 innings in the win over Washington in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.
It wasn't the most efficient outing from Peterson, as the left-hander threw 94 pitches (54 strikes) while failing to get through the fifth inning, ultimately leaving him ineligible to pick up his third win. Nonetheless, his outing was far from disastrous, especially considering that it came in a seven-inning game in which the bullpen needed to work only 2.1 frames. Peterson currently lines up to take the ball for one of the two games in next Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
Peterson (2-5) picked up the win Monday, allowing one hit and two walks over six scoreless innings in a 5-2 victory over the Cubs. He struck out three.
The southpaw threw 43 of 73 pitches for strikes as he put together his fifth quality start of the season. Peterson had coughed up nine runs in only three innings over his last two outings, however, and he'll need to find some consistency before he'll be anything more than a DFS dart throw. He'll carry a 5.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 56:23 K:BB through 53 innings into his next start.
Peterson (1-5) took the loss Tuesday at Baltimore after giving up four runs on eight hits with four strikeouts and a walk over 2.2 innings.
The left-hander delivered a scoreless opening frame but ended up requiring 69 pitches to record only eight total outs. The 25-year-old recorded only a single out in his previous start, and he's now failed to cover four frames in four of 11 starts this season. According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, manager Luis Rojas said Peterson will remain in the rotation for at least one more turn despite his recent struggles, and that start tentatively lines up for early next week against the Cubs.
Peterson gave up five runs on three hits and three walks in one-third of an inning Wednesday versus Arizona. He did not factor in the decision.
It was a nightmarish start for the southpaw, who wasted the Mets' four-run burst of offense in the first inning. Peterson's two shortest appearances of the season have been against Arizona -- he lasted only 1.2 innings May 7. He now owns a 5.89 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 49:20 K:BB through 44.1 innings this year. Peterson projects for a start versus Baltimore next week.
Peterson won't start Saturday against Atlanta as previously scheduled following the postponement of Friday's contest, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Friday's starter Taijuan Walker (side) will be pushed back to start Saturday, and the Mets have yet to decide whether Jacob deGrom will start as scheduled Sunday or also be pushed back. If deGrom remains on turn, Peterson is poised to take the mound Monday at Arizona.
Peterson (1-4) took the loss Monday, giving up three runs on five hits and three walks over six innings as the Mets fell 3-2 to the Rockies. He struck out three.
Solo shots by Ryan McMahon and Elias Diaz in the second inning hurt, but it was the run Colorado pushed across in the fourth that proved decisive. Peterson did deliver his fourth quality start of the season, and he'll take a 4.91 ERA and 49:17 K:BB through 44 innings into his next outing.
Peterson allowed three runs on five hits and a walk with five strikeouts in 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus Atlanta on Wednesday. He also hit a batter.
Peterson cruised through four innings, but he ran into trouble in the fifth, where he allowed four of his hits and the hit-by-pitch. That led to three runs for Atlanta, but the Mets' offense got their starter off the hook in the seventh. Peterson has a 4.97 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 46:14 K:BB across 38 innings this season. The southpaw lines up to face Colorado next week.
Peterson allowed two runs on four hits and two walks with nine strikeouts in 7.1 innings Friday versus Tampa Bay. He did not factor in the decision.
Peterson was strong over seven innings, but he ran out of steam in the eighth. He allowed a solo home run to Mike Zunino, then let Kevin Padlo aboard with a double. Reliever Trevor May allowed the inherited runner to score, denying Peterson a decision. The 25-year-old lowered his ERA to 4.86 after his longest start of the year. He's added a 1.26 WHIP and 41:13 K:BB in 33.1 innings. Peterson lines up to face Atlanta next week.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
