Mariners' D.J. Peterson: Likely to start at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is expected to begin the season as the starting first baseman at Triple-A Tacoma, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Peterson began the season at the Double-A level last season, but he ultimately got his first extended look at Triple-A and hit .253 with eight home runs in 46 games there. The 24-year-old was added to the 40-man roster over the offseason so he may get a chance in the majors at some point in 2017, but at this point it looks like he'll get the chance for regular at-bats in the minors to start out the year.

Mariners' D.J. Peterson: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was added to the Mariners' 40-man roster on Friday.

Peterson got off to a hot start with Triple-A Tacoma but cooled down enough that he finished with a .253/.307/.438 line in 192 plate appearances. He should figure into the Mariners depth at the corner infield positions heading into 2017.

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.
