David Peterson News
New York Mets left-hander David Peterson has been called up as the 27th man on Saturday for the team's doubleheader against the division-rival Philadelphia Phillies. Peterson will make the start in Game 2. The 26-year-old southpaw has been solid in 18 appearances for New York this year, going 6-2 with a 3.30 ERA (4.01 FIP), a 1.28 WHIP and a 91:38 K:BB in 79 innings pitched. Fourteen of his 18 outings have been starts for the Mets, with his last spot start coming on Aug. 6 against the Atlanta Braves when he allowed no earned runs on three hits while walking three and fanning five in 5 1/3 frames. Peterson isn't a bad fantasy streamer on Saturday.
New York Mets starting pitcher David Peterson is expected to be recalled for Saturday's doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies. The left-hander could very well stay up at the big league with Carlos Carrasco (oblique) sidelined. He holds a 3.30 ERA and 91/38 K/BB ratio over 79 innings this season. Those are fairly decent stats, so Peterson could be someone worth snagging as a short term option. He's worth monitoring in most formats, assuming he does get recalled on Saturday.
New York Mets left-hander David Peterson has been called up from the minors and will start Game 1 of a doubleheader against the division-rival Atlanta Braves on Saturday. Although the matchup is a tough one, Peterson is worth streaming consideration in fantasy. The 26-year-old southpaw has been effective for the Mets this year with a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 86 strikeouts and 35 walks in 73 2/3 innings over 17 appearances (13 starts) in 2022. His walk rate isn't the greatest, but he's made up for it with his 27.5 percent strikeout rate and 53.8 percent ground-ball rate. It remains to be seen if the Mets send him right back to the minors after his start on Saturday, but there's a chance he sticks around and works out of the bullpen.
New York Mets starting pitcher David Peterson had a strong rookie campaign in 2020. He posted a 3.44 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 40:24 K:BB in 49 2/3 innings pitched over nine starts. Despite this success, Peterson is no lock for a rotation spot heading into 2021. The Mets made numerous moves in the offseason to shore up their rotation. They signed Marcus Stroman to a qualifying offer, signed free-agent Taijuan Walker to a two-year deal, and traded for Carlos Carrasco and Joey Lucchesi. With Jacob deGrom, Carrasco, Stroman, and Walker locked into the first four rotation spots, Peterson will likely find himself in a competition for the fifth rotation spot with Lucchesi this spring. In addition, once Noah Syndergaard (elbow) returns from the injured list sometime in June or July, Peterson could find himself moved into a swingman role even if he breaks camp as the team's fifth starter. Also of note, since Peterson has not pitched more than a total of 129 innings over the past three seasons, the Mets could subject Peterson to an innings limit in 2021. Beyond these concerns, Peterson's 2020 metrics also suggest some ERA and WHIP regression. In 2020, he posted a 4.39 xERA, which would lead us to believe that his 3.44 ERA was partially luck-driven. In addition, his strikeout and walk rates were both within the bottom 26% of the MLB, which suggests a poor K:BB and WHIP increase in 2021. With the possibility that Peterson will not win and/or hold a rotation spot for the duration of the season, quality start and win totals will also likely be suppressed in 2021. At his current ADP of 399, Peterson is largely going undrafted in all but the deepest of mixed leagues. He is a better option for managers in dynasty formats heading into 2021 unless the Mets suffer injuries which would necessitate that Peterson remains in the rotation indefinitely.
