5-foot-9, 160-pound right/right prospect with twitch evident throughout his game. He has a strong, athletic build and provided STiKS Black with a constant spark all tournament. Peterson combined for 6-for-12 and his six runs scored are evidence of his calculated aggressiveness on the basepaths. He makes level, line-drive contact as an all-fields spray type. Defensively, he’s a versatile athlete who took a couple instinctual routes in left field, but also has the hands, feet, and actions to occupy a spot in the middle of the infield, and his skillset may fit best at second base long-term. Either way, Peterson has become a serious riser on our internal boards this summer, and should debut on the state’s ‘21 rankings next update.
