RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for D.J. Peterson.

2016

Few prospects have seen their stock crater like Peterson the last calendar year. Entering 2015 the case could have been made that he was one of the top corner infield prospects in baseball. After all, he clubbed 31 homers while hitting .297 across stops at High-A and Double-A in 2014. It is hard to say exactly what happened in 2015 (Peterson said he was trying to do too much), but he managed just seven homers while hitting .223 in 97 games between Double-A and Triple-A before a strained Achilles' tendon ended his season. A well below-average athlete, Peterson was never going to be a big league third baseman, but there were plenty who thought he could hit enough to play first base following his impressive 2014 campaign. Now? Not so much. The rule about first base prospects is they have to hit a ton. When they stop hitting, dynasty league owners stop caring, and, for now, Peterson has stopped hitting.

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.
