Peterson was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Thursday. The Brewers acquired Rymer Liriano, a 40-man roster spot had to be opened up, and Peterson was the victim. Peterson was a surprise contributor for the Brewers last season, ultimately filling the center field hole left by the trade of Carlos Gomez. He batted .259 and played good defense in each outfield position, which could make him an intriguing pickup for clubs in need of some outfield depth.
Brewers outfielder Shane Peterson (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday. Peterson hasn't shaken the effects of his collision with Elian Herrera during the weekend and is now set to miss his seventh game in a row. Logan Schafer, filling in for Peterson at center field, has been hitting second in the lineup as of late.
Brewers outfielder Shane Peterson (knee) is not in the lineup Wednesday. Going on six missed games for Peterson, who has yet to play since injuring his knee in a collision with Elian Herrera over the weekend. Logan Schafer will get the start in place of the 27-year-old.
Brewers outfielder Shane Peterson (knee) is not in the lineup Tuesday. Peterson has now missed five games after the scary collision with Elian Herrera and it's unclear right now when he might return to the lineup. Logan Schafer has taken over in his place, recording four hits, including a home run, in 10 at-bats - numbers that could give him a chance to compete with Peterson for playing time in center field if/when he returns from injury.
Brewers outfielder Shane Peterson (knee) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Reds, but he is available to pinch hit, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Peterson isn't necessarily an everyday option in the outfield anyway, but the added knee injury will keep him to pinch hitting duties Sunday. The Brewers will instead go with an alignment of Jason Rogers, Logan Schafer and Domingo Santana in the outfield instead.
