    Player Outlook

    The Braves began with Jace Peterson at second base last year because they were intrigued by his potential. They stuck with him because they had no other recourse. The Padres' castoff looked every bit like a light-hitting reserve, and it only got worse over time, with Peterson batting .212 with a .579 OPS over the final three months. At age 25, he probably doesn't have much room to improve from here. He was good for a high on-base percentage and some healthy stolen base totals in the minors, but he failed about as often as he succeeded on the base paths last year. And until he shows some power, major-league pitchers have every reason to challenge him at the plate. Most likely, the Braves are just starting him until they fine someone better, which is what you'll be doing if you draft him in an NL-only league.
