2020 Fantasy Outlook
Peters has 131 innings of major-league experience under his belt in his time with the Marlins and Angels, but a 5.70 ERA and 1.61 WHIP leave little to write home about. Peters is a lefty who works in the 90-92 mph range with a big loopy curveball, but has struggled with the command of both pitches in his three years at the big-league level. Lefties have a tougher time taking him yard, but righties own a .292/.363/.544 slash line against him and they've hit 22 of the 25 homers he has allowed in his big-league career. If he wants to avoid a permanent assignment to the bullpen, Peters will need to get better with his offspeed pitch or start using a cutter to knock on the front door of hitters. Until that happens, keep him at arm's length. Read Past Outlooks

Scratched with sprained ankle
PLos Angeles Angels
Ankle
March 10, 2020
Peters was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday against Seattle due to a sprained ankle, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Peters reportedly suffered the injury while walking down the stairs Friday. He's part of a crowded battle for a spot in the back of the Angels' rotation after posting a 5.38 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 72 innings last season. Any significant time lost to this ankle issue will hurt his chances.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Opportunity drives fantasy value, and Peters stands a good chance of breaking camp in the Miami rotation, and there are worse things than getting to call Marlins Park home. Peters induced groundballs at a 63.3 percent rate last season, and that led him to a 0.42 HR/9, 3.39 FIP and 3.87 xFIP in 21.1 innings at home. He issued too many free passes in his first exposure to big-league hitters (5.5 BB/9), but Peters' walk rates on the farm in 2016 and 2017 (1.4 BB/9 and 2.4 BB/9, respectively) suggest improvement is likely as he gets acclimated at the highest level. The lefty held same-handed hitters to a .059 average during his time with Double-A Jacksonville and right-handers combined for just a .307 wOBA against him in the majors. He has never reached even 8.0 K/9 above rookie ball, and the lack of strikeouts will limit his upside, but Peters has the makings of a decent home streaming option.
