RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
