I was thinking velocity-wise.


I'm no expert but maybe with pro coaching and some tinkering with his mechanics they can squeeze a little more out of him.


Well I read that he's 89-94, which is a pretty broad spread for a professional. If anything you'd think they could get him to sit more consistently 92-94, which would likely mean improved results.

92-94 for a lefty is like 95-96 for a righty

His velo is fine, it would be nice if he could get to the point where he could sit 92-94 all game but it's not all or nothing. Between being a lefty, his size, and his deception it'll look like 95 even at 91-92. Bumgarner is the extreme example of what I think Peterson should look like. Doesn't really light it up, but never tires, pounds the zone with life, and when he wants to can spin junk for days.

6'6 240lbs. Most likely done growing.

but could turn flab into muscle


Then we could drop Chuck Finley comps on him. Or Mark Mulder!

If he shrinks we can go with Al Leiter.

6'6 adds a bit too.

Bumgarner and (somewhat jokingly) Kershaw upside comps are floating around.

I've always loved a good underdog story. Go Mets (2018). I know an underdog when I see one.

His own pitching coach was saying that kind of dominance is what you see when you see those guys. There was no actual comp made c'mon lol.

Oregon lefty David Peterson punched out 140 batters and walked just 15 this year in a dominant season that took him into consideration in the teens, maybe the edges of the Top ten, and the Mets have to be pumped to get him at pick 20 given his performance and huge groundball rate.


Don't know if posted, the writeup from Keith law
