Mariners' D.J. Peterson: Boasts .901 OPS at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson, 24, is slashing .305/.352/.549 with five homers and a 24:5 K:BB in 82 at-bats since being promoted to Triple-A Tacoma.

Peterson struggled during a brief taste of Triple-A back in 2015, but he appears to be much improved at the plate this time around. Given Adam Lind's struggles in the big leagues this year (.231/.264/.450), Peterson could serve as an internal upgrade, especially if the Mariners are successful in unloading Lind before the trade deadline. However, the acquisition of 1B/DH prospect Dan Vogelbach from the Cubs earlier this week also complicates matters, as Vogelbach is a better prospect than Peterson and has more experience at Triple-A, so he could be the one to receive a promotion in the coming weeks.

Mariners' D.J. Peterson: Promoted to Triple-A Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson has been promoted to Triple-A Tacoma, seattlepi.com reports.

The 12th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Peterson bounced back strong from a disappointing 2015 campaign, posting a .271/.340/.466 slash line in 73 games for Double-A Jackson. He played four games with Triple-A Tacoma last season but has otherwise spent most of his minor league career at High-A and Double-A. Though the Mariners likely want to keep him in Triple-A for an extended period, Peterson might still emerge as a candidate for a September call-up.

Mariners' D.J. Peterson: Goes 3-for-4 with a homer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Double-A Jackson's 7-0 victory over Chattanooga on Monday.

Peterson is now 8-for-16 in his last four games, accruing three runs and four RBI during that time. While he's been hitting the ball well lately, he still holds a .242 season average. He'll need to hit at a more efficient clip than that if he hopes to be rewarded with a lengthy stint at Triple-A.

Mariners' D.J. Peterson: Sent back to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

D.J. Peterson will head back to Double-A to start the 2016 season, Baseball America's J.J. Cooper reports.

Up and down the Seattle Mariners farm system, the new regime is trying to make up for the overly aggressive promotional tactics of the prior front office, and Peterson is one of the primary examples of this. He was promoted to Triple-A last year despite hitting just .223/.290/.346 at Double-A, and the new regime is stressing the importance of earning promotions. Peterson's prospect stock has plummeted, but there's reason to be hopeful that under this new organizational approach, he can work more at his own speed to make the necessary improvements to his game.
