  • Mets' David Peterson: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Peterson to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Peterson struggled in another spot start Monday versus the Nationals and now sports a 1-6 mark with a brutal 8.08 ERA through 39 innings this season at the MLB level. Josh Walker will join the Mets' bullpen in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Gives up six runs in loss

    Peterson (1-6) took the loss Monday, allowing six runs on nine hits and two walks over five innings during a 10-3 defeat at the hands of the Nationals. He struck out five.

    Peterson has struggled in his second stint in the big leagues this year, allowing 10 runs over two starts (8.1 innings) while posting a 9:4 K:BB. The left-hander wasn't much better the first time around, surrendering 25 runs over six starts (30.2 innings). Overall, he sports a 8.08 ERA and 1.74 WHIP, but his 45:14 K:BB across 39 innings is encouraging. With Max Scherzer healthy again and Carlos Carrasco (elbow) close to returning from the injured list, Peterson may be sent back to Triple-A Syracuse soon.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Getting another start Monday

    Peterson is scheduled to start Monday's game versus the Nationals in Washington, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Peterson was called up from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday and made what was expected to be a spot start while Max Scherzer (neck) was pushed back in the pitching schedule. Scherzer is healthy again and is slated to start Sunday against the Nationals, but Peterson will stick in the rotation for the series finale Monday while the Mets give an extra day of rest to Justin Verlander, who is now slated to take hill Tuesday versus the Rays. Peterson struggled in place of Scherzer on Tuesday versus the Reds, yielding four earned runs on seven hits and two walks over just 3.1 innings.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Meeting up with team

    Peterson is meeting up with the Mets on Tuesday in Cincinnati, Michael Mayer of reports.

    Peterson was supposed to start for Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, but it sounds like he's going to be the backup plan for the Mets in case Max Scherzer (shoulder) isn't ready to take his scheduled turn Tuesday night against the Reds. There should be more clarity on the situation soon enough.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Early exit in emergency start

    Peterson (1-5) took the loss Tuesday, giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.1 innings as the Mets fell 7-6 to the Reds. He struck out four.

    The southpaw was sent down to Triple-A Syracuse at the end of April, but Peterson was brought back up after just one minor-league start when Max Scherzer (neck) wasn't able to take his turn. Peterson failed to capitalize on his second chance and needed 87 pitches to record only 10 outs, although he did avoid serving up any homers for just the second time in seven big-league outings this season. Peterson could remain in the Mets' rotation for now if Scherzer isn't ready to return over the weekend, or if the team simply wants to give the whole rotation an extra day of rest, but his 7.68 ERA and 1.68 WHIP don't make a compelling case to stick around for the long term.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Called up, starting Tuesday

    Peterson was called up from Triple-A Syracuse and will start Tuesday versus the Reds, Pat Ragazzo of reports.

    With Max Scherzer (neck) being scratched from his start Tuesday, Peterson will return to the big-league mound. Peterson has struggled to a 7.34 ERA and 1.57 WHIP with 36 strikeouts over 30.2 innings in six starts with New York this season. In a corresponding move that made room for the left-hander on the major-league roster, Jimmy Yacabonis (quad) was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Heads to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Peterson to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.

    Peterson has a strong 18.8 K-BB%, but it hasn't translated into worthwhile run prevention. The southpaw had strong starts against the Marlins and Padres earlier in the year, but he gave up four or more runs in his other four outings. With Saturday's postponement and a potential postponement coming again Sunday against Atlanta, the Mets will have well-rested rotation options available early next week, especially with Max Scherzer (suspension) and Justin Verlander (shoulder) will also set to return. John Curtiss was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Stuck with rain-aided loss

    Peterson (1-4) took the loss Friday as the Mets fell 4-0 to Atlanta, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out six.

    For four innings the evening featured a pitchers' duel between two talented southpaws, but Atlanta got to Peterson in the fifth while New York's bats remained quiet against Max Fried, and they never got a chance to respond when the game was called after five frames due to rain. The long ball remains Peterson's Achilles heel this season -- Matt Olson's blast Friday was the eighth homer he's served up in 30.2 innings -- but his 36:10 K:BB offers hope he can turn things around if he hits his spots a little better. Peterson will take a 7.34 ERA and 1.57 WHIP into his next start, likely to come next week in Detroit.
