Peterson was slated to start for Triple-A Syracuse, but is with the Mets in the event they need a starter.

The last three starts have not gone well for Peterson, who now owns a 7.34 ERA and 1.57 WHIP. He's pretty much a streaming-only option for fantasy at this point, and he could get a start against Detroit next week, depending on how the Mets manage their rotation.

Peterson has struggled to keep the ball in the park this season, allowing seven dingers in 25 and 2/3 innings. His ERA ballooned to 7.36, and he's sporting an unsightly 1.64 WHIP.

Peterson will need to pitch better if he wants to maintain a rotation spot once some of the injured Mets' starters return. It won't get any easier for him next time out, as he's scheduled to face the Braves.
