Peterson was reassigned to minor-league camp on Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Peterson received an invitation to big-league camp when he signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers in January, but he was never likely to break camp with the team. The 31-year-old spent the entirety of 2018 in Triple-A and is likely to do the same again this season.
Peterson went 2-for-2 with a solo home run in Tuesday's spring loss to the Royals. Peterson is in Dodgers camp as a non-roster invitee and entered Tuesday's game as the designated hitter off the bench. The 31-year-old has struggled to find MLB opportunities over the last few years, as he has only 87 major-league plate appearances since playing in 93 games with the Brewers in 2015.
Peterson signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers on Wednesday that includes an invite to spring training, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The 30-year-old spent all of last season in the minors while younger outfield options were tested in the majors, but he made the most of his stay at Triple-A. Peterson slashed .286/.343/.451 with 11 home runs and 74 RBI with El Paso. He also brings the ability to play all three outfield spots and a bit of first base to the picture. However, the Dodgers have many better options at the major-league level already, so Peterson faces an uphill climb to crack the Opening Day roster in 2019.
Peterson was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday. After signing a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training in December, Peterson faced an uphill battle at cracking the Padres' Opening Day roster. The veteran outfielder posted a .400 OBP in his numerous Cactus League appearances, but it ultimately wasn't enough to play his way onto the big-league roster, as the Padres are probably better served giving some of their younger outfielders an opportunity at the big-league level.
Peterson signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Thursday, Triple-A El Paso broadcaster Tim Hagerty reports. Peterson spent all of last season with the Rays, splitting time between Triple-A Durham and the majors and posting a combined .279/.313/.479 line with 14 homers (12 with Triple-A) in 106 games between the two teams. He's spent time in the majors with Oakland, Milwaukee and Tampa Bay, compiling a .245/.319/.359 triple-slash across 125 career games. He'll likely serve as organizational outfield depth with the Padres in 2018.
