6/02/19

One of the top overall performers of the weekend, regardless of age. Combined to go 8-for-11 in his team’s four games with five doubles, two walks, and never struck out. 6-foot, 220-pound two-way prospect with thick, large, strong frame. Right-handed hitter with advanced traits in the box. A measured approach, swings at strikes, waits out pitchers. Hits from a tall/balanced setup, simple load with controlled leg hang trigger. Short and ultra-quick path to the ball, loose and strong hands. Bat is long through the zone and geared to make hard gap-to-gap contact – and maybe even all-fields-type of power one day as he keeps growing and progressing. He consistently barreled balls all weekend with an elite quality of contact. Peterson also started the Hitmen’s first game on Saturday and struck out seven batters in three innings of work and actually earned a save later in the day. His fastball reached a top speed of 77 mph, and sat between 72-76 mph. His curveball sat between 57-60 mph with a 12/6 shape, while his changeup’s velocity ranged between 63-64 mph and he was mostly able to maintain his typical arm speed. Peterson filled up the zone with all his pitches, especially his fastball, as he threw 71 percent of his pitches for strikes. His final line on the mound, in two Day Two appearances: 4 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, BB, 9 K, SV.
