Zduriencik: Mariners' D.J. Peterson has 'a gift to hit the baseball'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mariners tihrd-base prospect D.J. Peterson is excited for his opportunity to participate in major-league spring training this season, and general manager Jack Zduriencik indicated he'll get time at first base as well as third base during the spring, MLB.com reports.

"He'll roll into Spring Training, and we'll see," Zduriencik said. "He'll play third, get a shot at first. Who knows where he's going to end up in the long run, but we all think he's going to hit. He's got a gift to hit the baseball, and that will play for us at some point."

Peterson didn't receive an invitation to major-league camp last season while recovering from a broken jaw, but he admitted that he has been counting the days till camp opens in February after receiving an invitation to participate.

"I was extremely excited," Peterson said. "Last year I kind of figured I wasn't going to get the invite with the whole face thing, but even then I looked in the mail every day, knowing it probably wasn't going to happen. But this year I got the phone call. So I'm excited. I'm excited to see what I can go do."

Peterson split time between high Class A High Desert and Double-A Jackson in 2014, hitting .297/.360/.552 with 31 home runs, 111 RBI and seven stolen bases in 495 at-bats. He played 19 games at first base and could be an option there for the Mariners if he proves productive in the spring.

Mariners already have D.J. Peterson on radar for 2015 season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Mariners are expected to be in the market this offseason for a right-handed power bat, but if they can't find an external option, then an internal option could be prospect D.J. Peterson, according to The News Tribune.

"His age and experience might be working against him," general manager Jack Zduriencik said, "but this is also a pretty good hitter. You don’t shut the door on it. You leave it open and see what he does.

"Coming out of Double-A to the big leagues is challenging, but he’s going to be in the Fall League. There are a lot of people who’ve been around him who think this guy is the real deal. We’ll bring him into spring training. He’ll get a fair shot. What happens, happens."

Peterson has primarily played third base in the minors, but he is expected to see significant time at first base in the Arizona Fall League. With Kyle Seager blocking his path at third base, Peterson's fastest route to the majors could be first base.

"I played a lot of first base in college," Peterson said. "It’s a position that I’m acquainted with. I’m very used to it. It wouldn’t be too much of an adjustment."

Mariners have no interest in dealing D.J. Peterson
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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.
