2022 Player Outlook
Dillon Peters was actually half-decent down the stretch for the Pirates, posting a 1-2 record with a 3.71 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 26.2 innings. He allowed three or less earned runs in all but one start, but he never made it past the fifth innings, so he'll need to work deeper into games if he wants to truly have any fantasy value beyond a streaming option. Peters has an arsenal that runs four pitches deep, but he'll be better off trading in some of his fastball usage for changeups and curveballs. Additionally, he reintroduced his sinker in 2021, but it wasn't exactly a worm killer by any means. Peters' only fantasy value this season likely comes from being a streamer option if he can keep the ball on the ground and push his strikeout rate north of 20 percent. However, I wouldn't bet on it happening.
