Peters gave up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in four innings Wednesday against the Yankees. He did not factor in the decision.
In three starts this month, Peters has logged a total of 11.1 innings and has not topped 4.1 innings in a start. He could make two starts next week (A's, Astros) if the Angels leave the rotation as is.
Peters (3-3) took the loss Wednesday, giving up four runs on five hits and three walks over three innings as the Angels were downed 4-3 by Cleveland. He struck out only one.
Four of the five hits off the southpaw went for extra bases, including homers by Francisco Lindor and Carlos Santana, and the Angels couldn't climb out of the early hole Peters had dug. He hasn't been able to complete five innings in four of his last five starts, and Peters will carry a 4.83 ERA and 48:21 K:BB through 59.2 innings into his next outing Sept. 18, on the road against the Yankees.
Peters didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 5-4 win over the White Sox, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks over 4.1 innings while striking out three.
The lefty threw only 54 of 88 pitches for strikes before getting the hook, and Peters was headed for his third loss until the Angels staged a late comeback. He'll take a 4.45 ERA and 47:18 K:BB through 56.2 innings into his next start Wednesday, at home against Cleveland.
Peters pitched 6.1 innings Saturday, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits while striking out six in a 10-4 win over the Red Sox.
Peters was on the hook for the loss until the Angels rallied for seven runs in the eighth inning to bail out the starter. In six August starts, Peters pitched to a 1-2 record and 4.67 ERA over 34.2 innings. He has a 4.13 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 52.1 innings overall this season. The southpaw will face the Athletics on the road Thursday for his next start.
