David Peterson MLB Career
The New York Mets selected Peterson with the 20th pick of the 2017 MLB draft. This season, he was sent to the Brooklyn Cyclones and spent the entire year with an impressive 2.45 earned run average.
Peterson was regarded as New York’s No. 2 prospect by MLB.com ahead of the 2018 season. He started the year with the Columbia Fireflies before being promoted to the St. Lucie Mets in June.
His overall record was 7–10 with a 3.16 ERA in 22 starts between the two teams. 2019 saw him play for Binghamton Rumble Ponies, going 3–6 with 4.19 ERA in 24 appearances, striking out 122.
There is a 40-man roster spot open for Peterson, who signed his contract on July 28 of 2020.
While pitching against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on the same day, he earned his first major league win after going 5+2/3 innings and allowing just one run on seven hits and an error with two walks.
A few hours into it, Peterson said it had been the best day of his life so far.
He was out for 10 days due to left shoulder fatigue, which had developed after his start against Washington against the Marlins on August 13, 2020.
On August 18, 2020, he was activated to start against the Marlins. When he returned to the active roster two weeks later, his record was 6–2 with a 3.44 ERA in 10 appearances for the rest of the season (9 starts).
A strain of the oblique put Peterson on the injured list on July 2, 2021.
On the 24th of July, Peterson was placed on the 60-day disabled list by the Minnesota Vikings.
While passing into the Mets clubhouse, Peterson said he felt something pop in his foot and went to the hospital, where he underwent surgery.
