Baseball: Mets grab former Regis Jesuit ace Peterson with 20th pick in MLB First-Year Player Draft

AURORA | This time, David Peterson’s draft spot was much more to his liking and a much truer measure of his ability. Just after he completed his senior year at Regis Jesuit High School, the ace left-handed pitcher got selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 28th round of the 2014 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, a place he found himself in largely because of a broken leg. Peterson instead headed to the University of Oregon, where he knew he might improve his draft stock tremendously the second time around. That became a black and white fact on Monday evening when the New York Mets spent their first round pick (No. 20 overall) on Peterson, a spot 834 selections higher than in 2014.
