2016

2015

The top position prospect in the organization, Peterson could see Seattle this season. The Mariners desperately need right-handed power and first base is open for Peterson. Unless he forces the team's hand, he won't make the roster out of spring training, but a callup at some point is expected. Peterson was one of six minor league players to finish with at least 30 homers and 100 RBI last season, batting .297 with 31 homers and 111 RBI in 123 games between Double-A Jackson and High-A High Desert. The Mariners likely will want to get him some seasoning at Triple-A Tacoma before a promotion, which also will allow them to delay his arbitration clock. Peterson might need more time, too, after slumping in the Arizona Fall League. In any event, the 12th overall pick in the 2013 draft is close to seeing the big leagues.

2014

The 12th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Peterson crushed Single-A pitching at two stops before a fastball to the chops ended his season in August. He underwent surgery and had his jaw wired shut, preventing him from playing in the Arizona Fall League. Peterson has a simple, compact, effective swing with power and an advanced approach at the dish. His glove is questionable at third base, and he likely will move across the diamond to first or to the outfield where his strong arm would play well. A top college player at New Mexico, he is expected to advance quickly through the system thanks to his power bat, and a September callup in 2014 is not out of the question.
