With the recent rash of pitcher injuries at the Major League level, the New York Mets made a flurry of transactions today.
Peterson was the Mets 2012 20th Round Draft Pick out of the University of Kentucky. He has earned this chance by continuing to put up good numbers in his professional career.
This year in Triple-A, Peterson has made 22 appearances going 0-1 with a 3.58 ERA, six saves, a 0.940 WHIP, and a 13.0 K/9.
Copeland was signed as a minor league free agent on April 17th. In five starts between Double and Triple-A, he has gone 4-0 with a 3.81 ERA, 1.412 WHIP, and a 6.7 K/9.
In his career, he has made just five appearance with all of them being in 2015. His penultimate appearance was a loss against the Mets.
Baumann was picked up off waivers from the San Diego Padres earlier in this year. He has made one appearance for the Mets allowing three earned in two innings.
Despite Conlon putting up an 11.12 ERA in two Major League starts, his being designated over Marcos Molina comes as a surprise with Molina struggling in Double-A, having lost velocity, and having just one option remaining past this season.
