Player Outlook
David Peterson was needed for 27 appearances (21 starts) for the Mets last season as the team battled numerous injury issues in their rotation. On the positive side, Peterson struck out 128 batters across his 111 innings, marking the second year in a row he's fanned well over a batter per frame. On the negative side, Peterson also had a walk rate over 10 percent for the second straight year and wound up finishing with an ERA over 5.00. The left-hander underwent left hip surgery in early November and a rough timetable has him returning around June. Pitchers that can miss bats and get groundballs like Peterson are usually ones you want to bet on. The southpaw has yet to throw strikes consistently in the big leagues, though, and isn't necessarily guaranteed a rotation spot once healthy.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Returns from paternity leave

    The Mets activated Peterson (personal) from the paternity list Monday. Peterson was away from the club for its final series before the All-Star break against the Rockies, but he'll be back on the roster for the start of the second half Friday in Miami. The Mets haven't revealed their post-break rotation plans yet, so it's not clear when Peterson's first start of the second half will come.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Moves to paternity list

    The Mets placed Peterson on the paternity list Friday. Peterson delivered six scoreless frames against the Nationals in his final start before the All-Star break Thursday, so his absence won't affect the Mets' rotation and will allow the club to add an extra bullpen arm. Eric Orze was called up in a corresponding move Friday.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Tosses six scoreless, earns win

    Peterson (4-0) earned the win Thursday, tossing six scoreless innings while allowing four hits and three walks against the Nationals. He struck out five. Peterson, who has now given up two earned runs or fewer in all but one of his eight starts, kept the Nationals off the board to mark his first scoreless outing of the season. Peterson lowered his ERA from 3.58 to 3.09 with the outing, though a less impressive 1.42 WHIP belies that ERA and portends more trouble in the future. Peterson will now receive extended time off as his next start is not scheduled to take place until following the All-Star break.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Inefficient in no-decision

    Peterson came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Pirates, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out five. The 28-year-old lefty ran up his pitch count and got the hook after 87 pitches (61 strikes), missing a chance to collect his fourth win of the season. Peterson has allowed two runs or less in four straight starts but has failed to complete five innings in two of them, leaving him with a 3.00 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 21:11 K:BB through 21 innings over that stretch. He could be the pitcher bumped from the rotation when Kodai Senga (shoulder) returns sometime after the All-Star break, but Peterson will take one more turn before the Midsummer Classic, lining up to face the Nationals at home next week.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Quality start in no-decision

    Peterson did not factor into the decision in Monday's 9-7 win versus Washington, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk over 6.1 innings. He struck out two. The New York southpaw scattered seven singles en route to his third quality start of 2024. After issuing eight free passes across 10.1 innings in his previous two outings, Peterson was much sharper in this appearance, walking fewer than two for just the second time this season in six starts. The 28-year-old now sports a 3.51 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 22:14 K:BB in 33.1 overall innings. He is currently slated to make his next start against the Pirates in Pittsburgh this weekend.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Fans eight in no-decision

    Peterson came away with a no-decision in Tuesday's 9-7 win over the Yankees, allowing one run on three hits and five walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out eight. Despite being staked to a 6-0 lead by the end of the fourth inning, Peterson wasn't efficient enough to qualify for his fourth straight win as he needed 103 pitches (62 strikes) to record his 13 outs. The southpaw has walked multiple batters in four straight outings but has mostly been able to limit the damage, and he'll take a 3.67 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 20:13 K:BB through 27 innings into his next start, which is currently scheduled to come on the road early next week against the Nationals. The Mets begin a stretch of 17 straight games without a day off Friday, however, which could require some juggling of the rotation.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Pushed back to next week

    Peterson will no longer start Sunday versus the Cubs after being pushed back in the Mets' rotation, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. It's not clear when Peterson's next start will come, but it now figures to be early next week against the Yankees. Luis Severino has been bumped up to start Sunday in Chicago on regular rest.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Cruises to easy win

    Peterson allowed two runs on four hits and three walks over six innings Monday, striking out six and earning a win over the Rangers. Peterson delivered a quality start as the Mets piled on 14 runs of support in the victory. He's earned three straight wins and has produced a quality start in two of his first four outings this season. He dropped his ERA to 3.97 with a 12:8 K:BB through 22.2 innings. Peterson also generated a season-high 11 whiffs, including six with his fastball. His next start is expected to be on the road against the Cubs.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Pitches well enough to win

    Peterson (2-0) earned the win over Miami on Wednesday, allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out one batter over five innings. Peterson wasn't exactly impressive in the outing -- he induced only two swinging strikes and walked more batters (two) than he struck out (one) -- but he survived just long enough to pick up his second straight victory. The four runs were a season-high mark for the southpaw, who has made only three starts thus far after beginning the season on the injured list due to a hip injury. Peterson's 4.32 ERA through 16.2 innings may be good enough to help him maintain a spot in the rotation, though his 6:5 K:BB doesn't bode well for his fantasy appeal.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Efficient in first win

    Peterson (1-0) picked up the win Tuesday, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks over 6.2 innings in a 6-3 victory over the Nationals. He struck out two. The southpaw wasn't dominant, but he threw an efficient 81 pitches (52 strikes) as he recorded his first big-league win since July 27 of last year, which coincidentally was also against Washington. Peterson has made a good case so far for sticking in the Mets' rotation, allowing four earned runs in 11.2 innings over his first two starts. He'll look to keep rolling in his next outing, which lines up to come at home next week against the Marlins.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Getting another start Tuesday

    Peterson is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Nationals in Washington, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. With a pair of off days Thursday and Friday ahead of their two-game series versus the Phillies in London this weekend, the Mets opted to condense their rotation from six to five men. Peterson ended up making the cut, as the Mets instead optioned rookie Christian Scott to Triple-A Syracuse last weekend. After returning from the 60-day injured list last week, Peterson drew a tough matchup in the Dodgers for his 2024 Mets debut, but he held his own against one of baseball's best offenses, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk while striking out three over five innings. He'll get a more favorable draw Tuesday, facing off against a Nationals offense that ranks 27th in the majors with an 81 wRC+ versus left-handed pitching for the season.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Solid in season debut

    Peterson came away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 10-3 loss to the Dodgers, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out three. Making his season debut after recovering from offseason hip surgery, Peterson tossed 86 pitches (57 strikes) in a solid performance and left the mound with the score tied, 3-3. The Mets are running with a six-man rotation at least until their trip to London in early June to face the Phillies, so the southpaw should get another start early next week, on the road against the Nationals. Whether Peterson remains in the rotation after that is unclear.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Activated for 2024 debut

    The Mets reinstated Peterson (hip) from the 60-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Dodgers at Citi Field. The Mets moved Adrian Houser to the bullpen over the weekend to make room in the rotation for Peterson, who will be making his 2024 debut for the big club after spending the first two months of the season on the IL while he completed his recovery from Nov. 6 surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip. Peterson exhibited few signs of rust during his lengthy rehab assignment, as he racked up 35 strikeouts against three walks while pitching to a 1.14 ERA over 23.2 innings across his six outings with Triple-A Syracuse, Double-A Binghamton and Single-A St. Lucie. Despite his success during the rehab assignment, fantasy managers may want to tread carefully with Peterson in his first start with the Mets since he'll be facing off against a Dodgers lineup that ranks second in baseball with a .333 wOBA.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Starting Wednesday

    The Mets have officially announced Peterson (hip) as the starter for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Peterson underwent surgery for a torn labrum in his left hip this offseason and opened the season on the 60-day injured list, but he'll make his long awaited return on the mound against Los Angeles. The southpaw recorded a 5.03 ERA and 1.57 WHIP with a 128:50 K:BB across 27 appearances (21 starts) last season with the Mets.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Strikes out eight in rehab start

    Peterson (hip) struck out eight over 5.1 scoreless innings in his latest rehab start Tuesday for Double-A Binghamton. He scattered five hits and didn't walk a batter. Peterson opened the season on the 60-day injured list while he completed his recovery from Nov. 6 surgery to address a torn labrum in his left hip, but the southpaw looks on pace to be activated on or around when he's first eligible May 27. He tossed 70 pitches (53 strikes) in Tuesday's outing, his first with Binghamton and the fourth outing overall of his rehab assignment. Peterson will likely shift his rehab assignment to Triple-A Syracuse and should require just one or two more tune-up starts before making his way back from the IL. The Mets have a full rotation at the moment, so Peterson -- who has a minor-league option remaining -- could end up sticking around with Syracuse upon his activation.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Moving rehab to Double-A

    Peterson (hip) will make his next rehab start with Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday or Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. The 28-year-old southpaw has made three rehab starts for Single-A St. Lucie, posting a dazzling 16:1 K:BB over 8.2 scoreless innings, and he appears ready for tougher competition as he completes his recovery from offseason hip surgery. Peterson is eligible to come off the injured list May 27, but the Mets rotation is crowded at the moment with prospect Christian Scott now in the majors and Tylor Megill (shoulder) poised to be activated from the 15-day injured list this week. Peterson has a minor-league option remaining, so he may get sent to Triple-A Syracuse once he's activated.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Nearly perfect in second rehab start

    Peterson (hip) struck out four and allowed one hit and no walks over three innings Friday for Single-A St. Lucie in the second start of his rehab assignment. Peterson has now permitted just one baserunner while striking out nine over his first two rehab starts with St. Lucie and could be ready for a stiffer test with a higher-level affiliate. He built up to 41 pitches (23 strikes) on Friday and will likely need to bring his count up to around 75 before the Mets feel comfortable bringing him back from the 60-day injured list. After opening the season on the shelf while he continued his recovery from left hip surgery, Peterson won't be eligible for activation until late May.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Kicks off rehab assignment

    Peterson (hip) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday with Single-A St. Lucie, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Peterson will likely be in store for a light workload as he begins his rehab assignment and makes his first appearance in affiliated ball Sept. 28, 2023. The southpaw, who underwent left hip surgery over the offseason, is on the Mets' 60-day injured list and is expected to be built up slowly over the next month before he's eligible for activation beginning May 27. Peterson's performance during the rehab assignment as well as the state of New York's rotation by late May will likely determine whether he takes back a starting spot upon his return or is eased back into the mix as a multi-inning reliever.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Nearing rehab assignment

    Manager Carlos Mendoza said Friday that Peterson (hip) is roughly one week away from beginning a rehab assignment, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Peterson has been sidelined all season after undergoing hip surgery in November. He will need to spend a significant amount of time in the minors as he builds up to a starter's workload, but he will have plenty of time to do so, as he is not eligible to return from the IL until May 27.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Throwing bullpen sessions

    Peterson (hip) began throwing bullpen sessions in March and is hopeful to return from the 60-day injured list when first eligible May 27, MLB.com reports. After undergoing surgery Nov. 6 to repair a torn labrum in his left hip, Peterson was projected to require 6-to-7 months of recovery time, so the Mets felt comfortable stashing him on the 60-day IL to begin the season to clear up a 40-man roster spot for another player. Peterson won't be ready to pitch in games at any point this spring, but he seems to be making steady progress in his recovery from hip surgery. Now that he's reached the point in his rehab where he's throwing bullpen sessions, Peterson could soon face hitters in live batting practice sessions and simulated games. After that, Peterson would then likely be sent out on an extended minor-league rehab assignment as he looks to build back up to a starter's workload.
