2020 Fantasy Outlook
In an era where strikeouts are king, Peterson gets it done the old-fashioned way: command, control and groundballs. That said, if he maintains the punchout gains of the past couple of seasons, Peterson has mid-rotation upside. The southpaw sits around 90 mph with his fastball, touching 93. It has good sinking action, helping to record one of the highest groundball rates in the minors. Peterson's slider is his strikeout pitch while he also works in a changeup and curveball. None are dominant, but he throws each for strikes. Peterson spent 2019 with Double-A Binghamton, posting a 4.19 ERA and 1.34 WHIP, giving up 119 hits in 116 innings while fanning 122 with 37 walks and nine homers. The high WHIP is characteristic of a groundball pitcher and should improve with better infield defense. Peterson should open the season with Triple-A Syracuse and could be a candidate for a callup if the Mets need a starter. Read Past Outlooks
