RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

As the Braves' primary second baseman, Peterson played his first full season in the major leagues in 2015. After Peterson struggled with the Padres in his rookie season, the Braves acquired him when they traded away Justin Upton before the 2015 season. Peterson helped fill a definite need at second base and had a fairly productive year doing so. In his 152 games he managed to hit .239/.314/.339 and his bright spot at the plate were 22 doubles and five triples. Peterson doesn't hit for much power but he's a stolen base threat and a guy that gets on base. Peterson is looking to be the frontrunner for Atlanta's starting second baseman in 2016, and he's expected to continue to grow into a threat at the plate.

2015

When a bout of plantar fasciitis forced Jedd Gyorko onto the DL in June, Peterson received a brief audition in the starting role at second base for San Diego. He had hit .303/.382/.454 with seven homers, 42 stolen bases and a 54:58 K:BB rate in 113 games with High-A Lake Elsinore the year before as a 23-year-old, and showed no signs of slowing down upon his promotion to Triple-A El Paso early in 2014 (.354/.455/.585 in May). The results in his time with the major league club were abysmal, however, as he notched just six hits (all singles) and two walks in 58 plate appearances, and the Padres ultimately decided to leave him off their expanded September roster. He did hold onto his 40-man roster spot at the Rule 5 deadline, but the Padres included Peterson as part of the package for Justin Upton in the offseason. After a hot spring, Peterson appears set to open the year as the Braves' primary option at second base. There is some stolen base appeal here, even with his expected spot in the bottom-third of the batting order.

2014

Peterson spent the entire year at High-A Lake Elsinore, posting a .303/.382/.454 batting line with seven homers, 66 RBI, 78 runs, and 42 stolen bases. The former second-round pick of the 2011 draft continues to show off superior speed on the basepaths, succeeding on 132-of-165 attempts during three minor league seasons. Consequently, he's expected to make the necessary jump to Double-A San Antonio.
