Mets' David Peterson: Control wavers Sunday
Peterson gave up one hit and four walks over four scoreless innings during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals. He struck out four.
The left-hander wasn't exactly sharp, throwing 40 of 66 pitches for strikes, but he was able to escape every jam his control issues created. More importantly for Peterson's chances of beginning the season in the Mets' rotation, Tylor Megill also pitched Sunday and had a much worse outing. Peterson posted a 3.86 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 110:41 K:BB over 19 starts (91 innings) as a starter last year, and at this stage he appears to be the clear favorite to win the No. 5 spot in the rotation....

Mets' David Peterson: Draws start Sunday
Peterson is starting Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.
Peterson will get the start, and Tylor Megill will follow for the Mets in the spring affair. Both arms are battling for one of the final spots in the New York rotation, and their efforts Sunday will at least play a part in determining who ends up being a part of that group to open the year....

Mets' David Peterson: Rotation battle heating up
Peterson walked one and struck out five over four scoreless, no-hit innings in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.
With Jose Quintana (ribs) projected to be out until around the All-Star break, there's an opening in the Mets' rotation, and the competition for it is fierce. Tylor Megill fired four scoreless innings against the Marlins on Monday with three strikeouts, but Peterson topped that Tuesday with a brilliant performance over 68 pitches (41 strikes) against a Washington lineup that contained a handful of Opening Day starters, including CJ Abrams, Keibert Ruiz and Corey Dickerson. Peterson might have the edge over Megill right now simply by virtue of the fact that he'd be the only southpaw in the New York rotation, but this battle could come right down to the wire....

Mets' David Peterson: Cleared to start Tuesday
Peterson (foot) will start Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.
Peterson made his second and most recent appearance of the spring March 4, but after taking a comebacker off his left foot in that outing, the Mets elected to delay his re-entry into the pitching schedule out of an abundance of caution. The southpaw's foot appears to have checked out fine following his most recent throwing sessions, so he'll get back on the hill Tuesday and could build up to 3-to-4 innings. Peterson's health and availability takes on added importance after Mike Puma of the New York Post reported Monday that starter Jose Quintana (rib) is expected to be shut down for the next three months, though Puma notes that team officials are intrigued by the idea of giving right-hander Tylor Megill the first crack at replacing Quintana in the rotation....

Mets' David Peterson: Might be behind Megill for rotation
Peterson (foot) could be behind Tylor Megill in the pecking order for a rotation spot with the Mets following Jose Quintana's (rib) injury, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Peterson has missed a little time this spring with a foot contusion (he could return Tuesday), but this seems to be more about the team viewing Megill as having more upside. Quintana is expected to be sidelined until around the All-Star break, so the Mets figure to wind up needing both pitchers, anyway. Peterson held a 3.83 ERA with 126 strikeouts in 105.2 innings in 2022 and is worthy of a late flier in fantasy leagues even if he doesn't start the year in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Mets' David Peterson: May pitch Tuesday
Peterson (foot) threw a bullpen session Saturday and could pitch in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old has now thrown off a mound twice since being struck in the left foot by a comebacker March 4, and he could make his return to game action this week. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, Peterson should have a chance to secure a spot in New York's Opening Day rotation with Jose Quintana (ribs) out indefinitely and Kodai Senga (finger) also banged up....

Mets' David Peterson: Throws live batting practice
Peterson (foot) threw live batting practice without issue Thursday in Mets camp, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Peterson would have been an option to start Thursday afternoon's exhibition game against Team Venezuela, but the Mets wanted to keep him in a more controlled environment after he took a comebacker off his left foot in a Grapefruit League outing over the weekend. All is well, per manager Buck Showalter. Peterson, 27, is competing with Tylor Megill for a spot in the season-opening rotation in Queens with Jose Quintana sidelined indefinitely due to a rib fracture.... See More ... See Less
Mets' David Peterson: Fine after comebacker to foot
Peterson said he's fine Tuesday after taking a comebacker off his left foot during a Grapefruit League start Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
It's encouraging news given that Peterson now appears to be in the running for a spot in the Mets' season-opening starting rotation after Jose Quintana was diagnosed Monday with a stress fracture in his left ribcage. Peterson, 27, worked to a solid 3.83 ERA with 126 strikeouts in 105.2 innings (19 starts, nine relief appearances) last year for New York. He's worthy of late-round consideration in most fantasy drafts with a path toward an elevated role.... See More ... See Less
Mets' David Peterson: Could get shot at rotation spot
Peterson (foot) is an option to join the Mets' rotation if Jose Quintana (rib) needs to miss time, Mark W. Sanchez of the New York Post reports.
Peterson is dealing with an injury himself, although his foot issue appears to be minor after a CT scan showed only a contusion. The left-hander showed flashes of being a mixed-league asset last season, finishing with a 3.83 ERA and 126 strikeouts over 105.2 innings while splitting time between the rotation and bullpen. Tylor Megill would also be in the mix to replace Quintana.... See More ... See Less
Mets' David Peterson: Day-to-day with foot bruise
Peterson has been diagnosed with a left foot contusion and is considered day-to-day, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.
Peterson's X-rays on his left foot came back inconclusive, and he underwent a CT scan Sunday. The left-hander was struck in the foot during Saturday's Grapefruit League appearance against the Marlins before exiting. Peterson may need to miss a few days while recovering from the bruise, but barring a setback he should be ready to go for the start of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' David Peterson: Sent for CT scan on foot
X-rays were inconclusive on Peterson's left foot, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Peterson was then sent for a CT scan, the results of which are not yet available. He was struck in the foot by a batted ball during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins. More should be known by Monday.... See More ... See Less
Mets' David Peterson: Scheduled for X-rays
Peterson will undergo X-rays after being struck on his left foot by a batted ball in Saturday's exhibition contest, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Peterson tossed two innings in Saturday's contest, but he also picked up the injury along the way. Expect the Mets to release another update on his status after the results of his exam are available.... See More ... See Less
Mets' David Peterson: Will be sixth starter at times
Peterson is expected to be in the mix as part of a six-man rotation the Mets plan to use at points this season, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
The team will utilize a traditional five-man setup for most of the season, but the plan is to insert a sixth starter during long stretches with no days off. That means both Peterson and Tylor Megill could wind up making a handful of starts even if everyone stays healthy (which, of course, is unlikely). It makes sense both because it will give the regular starters extra rest but also because Peterson and Megill on paper look like two of the better sixth/seventh starters in baseball.... See More ...

Mets' David Peterson: Will be stretched out in camp
Peterson will be stretched out as a starter in spring training, indicating he could begin the regular season in the rotation at Triple-A Syracuse, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The Mets have five veteran starters on guaranteed contracts, which means when everyone is healthy, depth options like Peterson will either work out of the big-league bullpen or get stashed in Syracuse. As Peterson has minor-league options remaining, the latter route seems more likely to begin the season. The 27-year-old southpaw made 28 appearances (19 starts) for the Mets in 2022 with a career-high 27.8 percent strikeout rate and solid 3.64 FIP, and he could be the first pitcher called upon should injuries hit the rotation....

Mets' David Peterson: Moving to bullpen
Peterson will be available out of the bullpen within the next few days, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The lefty could work out of the bullpen this weekend since Max Scherzer (oblique) is set to make his return to New York's rotation Monday. Peterson started Wednesday against the Cubs and surrendered five runs and recorded only one out.... See More ... See Less
