RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Peters, a juco product, is a rare tooled-up outfielder who did not come from the high school ranks and did not come off the board on day one of the draft. This appears to have been a brilliant scouting find, as the Dodgers signed him for an under-slot $247,500 deal after selecting him with the 131st pick. He went on to show plus power and plus speed while leading the Pioneer League in OPS (1.052), total bases (161) and runs (63) in 302 plate appearances. A 6-foot-5, 210-pound outfielder, Peters draws physical comps to Jayson Werth, and his production could also mirror what Werth did with the Phillies, notching a couple 20/20 seasons while hitting in the .250-.275 range. After posting a .432 BABIP in his first taste of pro ball, it will be interesting to see what kind of batting averages Peters posts when his luck normalizes against full-season pitching. Based on the tools and early success, Peters should be treated like a top-25 prospect from the 2016 draft class.
