Brew Crew Purchase Contract of Legends, Ex-Met Minor League Pitcher Nate Peden


The Milwaukee Brewers have purchased the contract of Lexington Legends (Atlantic League) and former New York Mets pitcher Nate Peden.

In nine innings with the Lexington, Peden, 22, posted an 8.00 ERA with seven strikeouts.

The Mets originally drafted Peden in the 13th round of the 2017 MLB June Amateur Draft out of University High School in Orlando, Florida. New York gave Peden a $125,000 signing bonus and he proceeded to put up a 4-10 record in three years in its system before the Legends signed him prior to the 2021 season.

“We are all very proud of Nate and thankful for his time spent with the Legends,” Legends President and CEO Andy Shea said a press release. “It is a great feeling having our players contracts get purchased by an MLB organization.”

Peden is the fourth Lexington Legend to have his contract purchased by a MLB franchise following Nick Lovullo (Marlins), Tim Peterson (Angels), and Mike Hauschild (Cubs).
