Mariners have no interest in dealing D.J. Peterson


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) The Mariners have no interest in dealing third baseman D.J. Peterson , according to Seattlepi.com.

Peterson is regarded as the team's best prospect hitter, but the front office isn't looking to put him in any upcoming deals. The Mariners have been speculated as a possible contender for David Price, but general manager Jack Zduriencik said he would be hesitant to part with Peterson in any deal. "I don’t have any interest in trading D.J. Peterson, I can tell you," he said to a local radio station. "None at all." Zduriencik added that you never say never, but he's not actively looking to move Peterson for short-term help.

Peterson is hitting .319/.373/.594 over two levels in the minors. 


D.J. Peterson 'ready' to get back on the field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Mariners third base prospect D.J. Peterson said he is "feeling really good" after his first pro season was cut short in August because of a broken jaw suffered when he was hit by a pitch. Peterson hasn't hit off living pitching since, but he's taking swings in a batting cage and hitting off a pitching machine.

The 2013 first-round pick (12th overall) knows he's going to face questions about his confidence after the unfortunate incident, but Peterson doesn't seem too concerned about stepping back into the batter's box.

"There's nothing you can really do. It's kinda out of your hands," Peterson said. "It was a freak accident that doesn't happen too often. How many times do guys get hit in the head? Not very often. It's something that hopefully doesn't happen again. I'm sure it won't happen again. I'm ready to be back on the field. I'm ready for spring training. I'm ready to show this team what I can do."

The Mariners also appear confident Peterson will bounce back.

"He's been working out in Arizona and looks good," Mariners minor-league coordinator Chris Gwynn said. "He had a great year that was cut short by the fastball to the jaw. It wasn't pretty, but before that, he put up some pretty good numbers. He's a really aggressive hitter, and he'll want to step back in there immediately. I'm anxious to see how he reacts as well."


D.J. Peterson's season likely ends with surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2013) Mariners first round pick D.J. Peterson underwent surgery Friday to repair a broken jaw, suffered when he was hit by a pitch Thursday, according to MLB.com. 

Peterson's season is likely over with this injury. The No. 12 overall pick in the 2013 draft was hitting .312 with Class A Clinton, with a .922 OPS in 99 at-bats prior to the injury. He should be fine for the start of spring training next season. 


D.J. Peterson already on the move in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2013) Mariners third base prospect D.J. Peterson announced via Twitter he was being promoted from short-season Class A Everett to low Class A Clinton. The 12th overall pick in the 2013 MLB draft hit .312 with a .532 slugging percentage and .914 OPS in 29 games for Everett.

Peterson also had six doubles, six home runs, 20 runs and 27 RBI, while having nearly as many walks (13) as strikeouts (18).

Peterson had his first two-homer game July 6 and has managed three or more hits four times, including a career-high four hits July 4. Peterson has five home runs, six doubles, 14 runs and 25 RBI. He has struck out 15 times and walked nine times.


Mariners' 2013 first-round pick makes pro debut


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Peterson played three seasons for New Mexico, batting .381 with a .463 on-base percentage, .691 slugging percentage and 1.154 OPS in 177 games. As a junior, Peterson hit .408 with four triples, 18 homers, 25 doubles, 68 runs and 72 RBI in 55 games.
