Pitcher David Peterson was the 20th overall selection in the 2017 amateur draft, by the New York Mets. In 2014, coming out of high school, he had been selected in the 28th round by the Boston Red Sox, but decided to attend the University of Oregon instead, from which the Mets drafted him after his junior year.
He began his professional career in 2017 with the Brooklyn Cyclones of the New York-Penn League, but made just 3 starts and pitched 3 2/3 innings after what had been a very full college season. In 2018, he began the year with the Columbia Fireflies in the South Atlantic League before receiving a promotion to the St. Lucie Mets of the Florida State League after 9 starts. His combined record was 7-10, 3.16 in 22 starts, with 115 strikeouts in 120 innings. He then spent the 2019 season in AA with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, where he was 3-6, 4.19 in 24 starts in 116 innings.
