Dillon Peters, known on the Twitters as @Dillypicks (to answer your question), was chosen in the 10th round of the 2014 draft by the Miami Marlins. Highly regarded, he posted a 14-6 record with a 2.38 ERA in 2016 between the Jupiter Hammerheads and the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp.

Peters missed a lot of last season with a freak injury suffered the first month of the season. He recovered well enough to rack up a 1.57 ERA in 13 starts across three levels of minor league ball. He held opposing hitting to a 0.921 WHIP and struck out 55 in 63 frames.

Peters was called up to the Marins for the 2017 stretch run, and collected a 1-2 record with a 5.17 ERA across six starts. Although he had a 1.628 WHIP, he was a much better pitcher at home. That’s where he whiffed 18 in 17 2/3 innings and held a 1.132 WHIP. He was 1-1 with a 1.53 ERA within Marlins Park.

Peters road record doesn’t inspire much confidence. He had a 9.88 ERA in three starts, with a 2.268 WHIP (just over double his home number).

In the series finale against Chicago, Peters started and went six scoreless innings, holding the Cubs to six hits and a walk. He struck out two batters, and now has a career home ERA of 1.14.
