David Peterson News
New York Mets starting pitcher David Peterson will make his next scheduled start with the Mets, according to manager Luis Rojas. Peterson lasted just 2 2/3 innings pitched against the Orioles on Tuesday, allowing four earned runs, eight hits and one walk in the 10-3 loss. Over his last four starts, the struggling 25-year-old has allowed 15 earned runs, 21 hits and eight walks in 13 2/3 innings, resulting in his ERA ballooning to 6.32 and his WHIP rising to 1.51. Peterson is tentatively scheduled to face the Cubs next Monday at home. Given his struggles and very poor results thus far in 2021, he is best left on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.
New York Mets starting pitcher David Peterson lasted just 2 2/3 innings pitched against the Orioles on Tuesday, allowing four earned runs, eight hits, and one walk in the Mets 10-3 loss. Peterson's record dropped to 1-5 on the season, while his ERA and WHIP rose to 6.32 and 1.51, respectively, over 47 IP on the season. After a decent, albeit, inconsistent start to the 2021 campaign, the wheels have totally fallen off for Peterson since he turned in a quality start against the Rays back on May 14. Over his last four starts, Peterson has allowed 15 ER, 21 hits, and eight walks in 13 2/3 IP. At this point, it remains to be seen whether the Mets will assign Peterson to the bullpen or the minors to iron out his issues. Conversely, the Mets may be forced, due to the injuries to Noah Syndergaard (elbow) and Carlos Carrasco (hamstring), to keep Peterson in the rotation. Notwithstanding, and despite the potential Peterson has previously shown as a MLB starter in 2020, fantasy managers in redraft leagues and all but the deepest of dynasty formats should move on from Peterson and leave him on the waiver wire.
New York Mets starting pitcher David Peterson had a nightmare start Wednesday afternoon, recording only one out and allowing five runs on three hits and three walks. He did not strike out a batter. The outing ballooned his season ERA to 5.89 and his season WHIP to 1.40. Peterson has plenty of potential as a major league player, but fantasy managers would be best served to leave him on the waiver wire.
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.
