David Peterson was returned to Triple-A after allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings against the Braves on Tuesday.
The Mets didn't need to use an option because Peterson was the 27th man for the doubleheader against the Braves. He's pitched very well when called upon this year, and now has a 1.89 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. He's likely to be used only when the Mets need a sixth starter, but those in NL-only leagues should keep him stashed, as he'll likely be needed at some point again this year.
David Peterson pitched 5.2 innings, allowing one run on three hits with three strikeouts against the Diamondbacks on Friday.
Peterson did not earn the win as Edwin Diaz blew the save, but it was still a productive outing for Peterson who now has a 0.64 ERA over 14 innings this season. Peterson is earning his spot in the rotation with his solid performances.
David Peterson allowed four runs on five hits over three innings of work on Sunday. He gave up a pair of homers, walked one, and struck out one as he was handed the loss against St. Louis.
The New York starting rotation is one of the best in baseball, but it is awfully right handed. It's no wonder they started their first two spring training games with lefties. Petersen got knocked around a bit and is likely looking at a long relief role with the club.
The bad news continues to pour on for the injury-riddled Mets. The latest ailment comes to young starter David Peterson, who has been diagnosed with a strained right oblique. As a result, he's been placed on the 10-day injured list.
Mets manager Luis Rojas told the media that the normal recovery time for injuries of this nature is "usually up to eight weeks," though Peterson might require less than that. The 25-year-old is 2-6 with a 5.54 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and .255 OBA.
Mets LHP David Peterson (side) won't make his next scheduled start.
Peterson allowed six runs (five earned) over three innings in Wednesday's start against the Braves. He'll likely wind up on the IL for now.
