Report: Mariners move top prospect D.J. Peterson to Triple-A

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/29/15) The Mariners have made the decision to promote top prospect D.J. Peterson to Triple-A Tacoma, according to a report from SeattlePI.com. 

Peterson, the 12th overall pick in the 2013 draft, didn't light it up at Double-A Jackson, putting up a .223/.290/.346 slash line with seven home runs and 44 RBIs, but started to hit better in the second half, hitting .259 with three homers and 13 RBIs in 29 games. 

The Mariners had hoped to fast-track Peterson to the majors, perhaps by the end of this season, but the 23-year-old will have to produce at Triple-A first. 

Mariners' Peterson getting back on track after failed offseason changes

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/16/15) Mariners corner-infield prospect D.J. Peterson connected for a grand slam in Double-A Jackson's 9-6 win Wednesday at Mobile. He finished 2 for 5 with two runs and one stolen base.

"[I was] just looking to get a base hit up the middle, find good contact," Peterson said, per MiLB.com. "He happened to throw a fastball middle-in. I connected and it went. Basically, I was just trying to get a base knock up the middle and I ended up with a grand slam."

Peterson is finally starting to show some life offensively after a very poor start to the season. Peterson's slow start was due to the tweaks he made to his swing this offseason. The major drawback of his new approach was he didn't have as much pop when he made contact. He has since gone back to the drawing board in an attempt to get back to the player who hit 31 home runs in 2014.

He is batting .273 with two home runs, four doubles and nine RBI in his last 16 games after posting a .206/.286/.320/.606 slash line in his first 67 games.

"I think maybe in the offseason, I was trying to do a little too much," he said. "I tweaked something and built a bad habit and took a long time to get out of it.

"I had to figure out where I'd been with my load, where my hands were, to get back to where I was then. I've just been trying to find my swing, where it was. I think the last couple months ... I'm starting to feel it a little better, find my swing."

Peterson entered the season as a top-100 prospect, according to MLB.com (No. 50) and Baseball America (No. 85).

Peterson, Marte, Kivlehan among Mariners cuts Friday

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/15) The Mariners announced Friday they cut 11 players from major-league camp

Pitcher Lucas Luetge, catcher John Hicks, indielder Ketel Marte, infielder Jesus Montero, outfielder James Jones and outfielder Stefen Romero were optioned to Triple-A Tacoma.

Pitcher Justin Germano, pitcher Rafael Perez, infielder D.J. Peterson, infielder Patrick Kivlehan and outfielder Franklin Gutierrez were reassigned to minor-league camp.

Peterson (No. 2), Marte (No. 3) and Kivlehan (No. 4) are among the Mariners' top prospects, according to Baseball America.

Zduriencik: Mariners' D.J. Peterson has 'a gift to hit the baseball'

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/3/15) Mariners tihrd-base prospect D.J. Peterson is excited for his opportunity to participate in major-league spring training this season, and general manager Jack Zduriencik indicated he'll get time at first base as well as third base during the spring, MLB.com reports.

"He'll roll into Spring Training, and we'll see," Zduriencik said. "He'll play third, get a shot at first. Who knows where he's going to end up in the long run, but we all think he's going to hit. He's got a gift to hit the baseball, and that will play for us at some point."

Peterson didn't receive an invitation to major-league camp last season while recovering from a broken jaw, but he admitted that he has been counting the days till camp opens in February after receiving an invitation to participate.

"I was extremely excited," Peterson said. "Last year I kind of figured I wasn't going to get the invite with the whole face thing, but even then I looked in the mail every day, knowing it probably wasn't going to happen. But this year I got the phone call. So I'm excited. I'm excited to see what I can go do."

Peterson split time between high Class A High Desert and Double-A Jackson in 2014, hitting .297/.360/.552 with 31 home runs, 111 RBI and seven stolen bases in 495 at-bats. He played 19 games at first base and could be an option there for the Mariners if he proves productive in the spring.

Mariners already have D.J. Peterson on radar for 2015 season

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/1/14) The Mariners are expected to be in the market this offseason for a right-handed power bat, but if they can't find an external option, then an internal option could be prospect D.J. Peterson, according to The News Tribune.

"His age and experience might be working against him," general manager Jack Zduriencik said, "but this is also a pretty good hitter. You don’t shut the door on it. You leave it open and see what he does.

"Coming out of Double-A to the big leagues is challenging, but he’s going to be in the Fall League. There are a lot of people who’ve been around him who think this guy is the real deal. We’ll bring him into spring training. He’ll get a fair shot. What happens, happens."

Peterson has primarily played third base in the minors, but he is expected to see significant time at first base in the Arizona Fall League. With Kyle Seager blocking his path at third base, Peterson's fastest route to the majors could be first base.

"I played a lot of first base in college," Peterson said. "It’s a position that I’m acquainted with. I’m very used to it. It wouldn’t be too much of an adjustment."
