The Mets acted swiftly and decisively Tuesday by optioning left-hander David Peterson to Triple-A Syracuse.
Peterson, who was so valuable for the Mets last season as a starter and later in the season as a reliever, has gotten off to an awful start this season, going 1-6 with an 8.08 ERA. With Carlos Carrasco set to return, the Mets have opted to go back to a five-man rotation and let Peterson go to Triple-A to figure out the root cause of his struggles.
Having seen what he’s capable of when he’s at his best, the Mets are confident the 27-year-old can return to his 2022 form.
“I told him today that it’s good that I’ve seen him really good,” manager Buck Showalter said on Tuesday at Citi Field before the Mets opened a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
