2) NY Mets SP David Peterson is the next man up
David Peterson would be my guess as the next man up in the Mets rotation. He'll replace Quintana and should be a consistent figure in the rotation at least until he gets back.
Peterson was up and down between Syracuse and the Mets last season and made some appearances as a starter and a reliever. He was used in just about any role imaginable and did as good of a job as the Mets could've hoped.
The southpaw pitched to a 3.83 ERA in 28 appearances (19 starts) and was more than adequate at the back of the Mets rotation.
The Mets really need Peterson to repeat the season he just had. He gave the Mets a 3.86 ERA as a starter and allowed four earned runs or fewer in all but three of his starts. The 3.86 ERA was higher than it should've been, as he had one awful start in which he allowed five runs while recording just one out. For the most part, he was phenomenal.
Peterson kept the Mets in games and gave them a chance to win which is really all you can ask for out of a fifth starter. The Mets need that from him again, he has to step up.
