Peterson (4-6) picked up the win for High-A St. Lucie in Friday's victory over Dunedin, allowing two hits and three walks over five scoreless innings while striking out five.
ANALYSIS
The Mets' No. 10 fantasy prospect had a rough beginning to his tenure in the Florida State League after getting promoted in June, but Peterson seems to have figured something out, posting a 1.06 ERA and 20:4 K:BB in 17 innings over his last three starts. The 22-year-old southpaw will likely remain with St. Lucie through the rest of the season, putting him in line for his first crack at the high minors in 2019 and a possible big-league debut in 2020.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
A big 6-foot-6 southpaw, Peterson has the potential to have three above-average pitches and and above-average command down the road, hinting at a future role as a No. 4 starter. His low-90s fastball isn't much of a bat-misser, but he should excel at generating groundballs. His slider and changeup both have the potential generate whiffs, and while neither is a plus pitch right now, both have a chance to get there. The key for Peterson will be carrying over the excellent control he showed in his junior season at Oregon, where he posted a 1.4 BB/9. Surgery to remove an ingrown toenail limited him to just three starts for a total of just 3.2 innings in his pro debut. He is advanced enough to head to Low-A or High-A this season. If he were to experience a slight uptick in velocity, Peterson's secondaries and command profile could allow him to project as No. 2 or No. 3 starter, but for now his upside appears capped.
