Dodgers' Shane Peterson: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was reassigned to minor-league camp on Monday, Ken Gurnick of 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.

Dodgers' Shane Peterson: Hits first spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Shane Peterson: Inks NRI deal with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Shane Peterson: Shifts to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Shane Peterson: Inks deal with Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Clears waivers, heads to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Durham, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

For the second time this season, Peterson has passed through waivers untouched and reported back to Durham. He'll continue to serve as organizational depth with the Bulls.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Cast off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was designated for assignment Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Peterson's playing time had been dwindling with the increased usage of Corey Dickerson in the outfield, and with Lucas Duda entering the fray, Dickerson will likely spend the bulk of the remainder of 2017 in left field. This makes Peterson a redundant roster piece, so he'll head off the 40-man roster to make room for the new addition. Peterson has enough MLB experience under his belt that he could garner some interest on waivers, although he'll likely act as an organizational depth piece even if he changes organizations.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Three-hit effort in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson went 3-for-4 with a double and a run in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Angels.

Peterson has seen action in 12 games since his latest callup from Triple-A Durham and has been a solid contributor overall, with Saturday's production bringing his season line to .277/.342/.446. The veteran outfielder's three-hit night was his first of the season and fourth multi-hit effort of 2017 overall.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Raps out pair of hits Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson went 2-for-4 with a double in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Pirates.

The 29-year-old snapped out of an 0-for-6 mini-slump that encompassed his previous three games and tallied his first two-bagger since April 24 in the process. Peterson has provided serviceable production at the plate during his major-league stints this season, and his current stay with the big-league club could potentially extend through Kevin Kiermaier's recovery from a fractured hip.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Drives in career-high four runs in majors return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson went 1-for-3 with four RBI from a two-run home run, a run-scoring groundout and a sacrifice fly in Friday's 15-5 win over the Orioles. He also walked once.

Having just been called up earlier in the day from Triple-A Durham, Peterson started in left field and came through with a career-high RBI total. The 29-year-old has provided serviceable production at the major-league level this season, slashing .268/.326/.463 with two doubles, two homers and 10 RBI. Colby Rasmus' hip injury figures to afford Peterson a decent amount of playing time for at least the next week-plus.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will join the Rays on Friday while getting the start in left field against Baltimore, Steve Carney of 680 WDAE reports.

Peterson has spent the majority of the season playing for Triple-A Durham, but the outfielder did earn a decent chunk of time in the big leagues earlier this season. In 41 plate appearances with the Rays this season, Peterson went 10-for-38, hitting one home run and driving in six RBI while slashing .263/.317/.395. He will likely split time with Peter Bourjos while Colby Rasmus recovers from a hip injury that will sideline him for the next week.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson reported to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Rays designated Peterson for assignment shortly after activating Colby Rasmus (groin) from the disabled list, but he'll stick in the organization after no teams put in a waiver claim for the 29-year-old. Peterson could resurface with the Rays later in the season if the team has a need for a platoon outfielder.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Clears waivers Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson cleared waivers Friday after being designated for assignment by the Rays on Tuesday, Steve Carney of 620 WDAE reports.

Peterson will now have to decide during the next few days whether he will report to Triple-A Durham. If he does not report and is not traded, he'll become an unrestricted free agent.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Officially DFA'd Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was designated for assignment Tuesday by the Rays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

As anticipated, Peterson will cede his roster spot to Colby Rasmus, who was recently activated off the disabled list after spending the month of April nursing a groin injury. Peterson held his own in his brief cup of coffee in Tampa Bay, posting a .712 OPS with six RBI and five runs scored. This strong showing could help the 29-year-old garner a callup later in the season if the Rays' outfield depth becomes depleted once more.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Likely to be designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson, who is slashing .286/.324/.429 over 37 plate appearances, is likely to be designated for assignment when Colby Rasmus (groin) is activated sometime in the coming week, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 29-year-old has acquitted himself well in his brief opportunity with the big-league club, but Rasmus' long-awaited return is expected to lead to Peterson being exposed to waivers. His one saving grace in the short term would come if he must step in for Steven Souza (hand), a candidate for the disabled list.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is not in the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Peterson has yet to start against a lefty all season, and it appears that won't change Saturday with the Blue Jays sending Francisco Liriano to the mound. Peter Bourjos will bat ninth and play left field in his stead.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Sits out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Peterson has been a staple in the Rays' lineup since being called up, and he's rewarded them by batting .333 (9-for-27) thanks in part to a modest six-game hit streak. He'll head to the bench for a night off with southpaw Wade Miley taking the ball for Baltimore, allowing Peter Bourjos to pick up a start in left field.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Another timely hit Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson went 1-for-2 with a two-run double in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Orioles.

The 29-year-old outfielder continues to provide timely hits, with his fourth-inning two-bagger Monday plating Brad Miller and Steven Souza, Jr. and extending his hitting streak to six games. Peterson has racked up six RBI over his 27 at-bats since being summoned from Triple-A Durham on April 14 in the wake of Mallex Smith's hamstring injury, although he's still likely destined for a demotion once the latter returns.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Stays hot in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson went 2-for-3 with a double and run in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Tigers.

The 29-year-old has gone 5-for-12 with a double, a home run and three RBI over his first three starts, leading to a .357 average over 14 overall plate appearances. He projects for a return back to Triple-A Durham once Mallex Smith (hamstring) returns from the disabled list.

Rays' Shane Peterson: Homers in Rays debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson, just called up from Triple-A Durham earlier in the day, went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in a 10-5 win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Peterson blasted a 375-foot shot to right with Logan Morrison aboard to open the scoring on what would be an explosive offensive night for the Rays. It was an auspicious debut for the career minor leaguer, who's only logged 233 major league plate appearances in a pro career that spans nine-plus seasons. Peterson worked out of the eight-hole and was deployed as the designated hitter Friday, but he could see some time in the outfield during his stint in Tampa.
