Peterson went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Detroit. The 31-year-old scored on a Lorenzo Cain double in the second inning, but Milwaukee mustered just one hit and one walk in the final seven frames. Peterson is up to 10-for-11 in stolen-base attempts this year. He's slashing .265/.376/.390 with five home runs, 30 RBI, 35 runs scored and 11 doubles. The utility man filled in for Avisail Garcia (back) in right field Wednesday, but the latter's absence isn't expected to be very extensive.
Peterson remains on the bench for Wednesday's game against the Phillies. Before sitting out Tuesday's 10-0 win, Peterson slashed .295/.392/.364 with four runs, four RBI and a stolen base over a stretch of 13 consecutive starts. Peterson's ability to play all over the infield and outfield while getting on base at a high clip should help his case for receiving semi-regular work, but he won't have a clear path to an everyday role now that Avisail Garcia, Eduardo Escobar and Kolten Wong are all back in action after recently missing time.
Peterson went 3-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored in Monday's 3-1 win over the Giants. Peterson scored the second run of the game when Corbin Burnes drove him in in the second inning. In addition, he added a ground-rule double in the eighth frame. It was the third game this season Peterson reached base safely four times. The 31-year-old is slashing .278/.400/.428 with five homers, 28 RBI, 32 runs and eight steals in 220 plate appearances. He is receiving more playing time temporarily while Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) is on the 10-day injured list.
Peterson went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks and an RBI in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Reds. Peterson provided some insurance in the seventh with an RBI ground-rule double that extended the Brewers' lead to 2-0. The 31-year-old hasn't gotten a ton of consistent playing time since returning from the COVID-IL earlier this month, but he may have a window of opportunity for some additional starts at the hot corner while Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) is on the 10-day injured list. Peterson is now slashing .268/.393/.427 with five homers, 27 RBI, 29 runs scored, eight steals and 33:41 BB:K over 201 plate appearances.
Peterson went 5-for-5 with a home run, a double, four RBI, three runs and a walk in Thursday's victory over the Cubs. Peterson started Thursday for just the third time since coming off the COVID-19 injured list Aug. 2, and he made the most of the opportunity, reaching in all six plate appearances and raising his OPS a whopping 70 points to .821. Peterson has posted a stellar .980 OPS in 31 games since June 23, but with the Brewers relatively healthy, expect him to continue filling a part-time role.
