Braves' Dustin Peterson: Begins taking batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (hand) has resumed taking batting practice, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

This is a significant development in Peterson's rehab as he works his way back from surgery to remove the hamate bone in his left hand. The Braves will likely wait a few batting practice sessions so see how Peterson's hand responds to the increased activity before deciding on the next step of his rehab process. Peterson slashed .282/.343/.431 with 88 RBI at Double-A last season.

Braves' Dustin Peterson: Opens year on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (hand) opened the year on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Gwinnett, MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo reports.

He had surgery in early March to remove the hamate bone in his left hand likely won't return to baseball activities until early May. Everyone is aware of how loaded the Braves' farm system is on the pitching side, but Peterson is one of the few legitimate hitting prospects who are close to the big leagues. He will likely spend most, if not all of 2017 at Triple-A, but could profile in an outfield corner for the Braves in 2018, offering the potential for a .270 average and 15-20 homers in his peak years.

Braves' Dustin Peterson: Moves to minor league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (hand) was reassigned to minor league camp Wednesday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 22-year-old entered spring training as a candidate for a bench role with the big league club, but things changed after he broke the hamate bone in his left hand. This ensures that he'll start the season in the minor leagues, but if he can return to form, he could be back in the bigs early on.

Braves' Dustin Peterson: Out eight weeks following hand surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson had surgery Friday to extract the hook of the hamate bone in his left hand and will be out approximately eight weeks, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Having to undergo hand surgery could not have been the spring training development that Peterson was hoping for. The 22-year-old is coming off a solid season last year with Double-A Mississippi, slashing .282/.343/.431 to go along with 12 home runs and 88 RBI. His recovery timetable would have him make his return to action some time in late April or early May.

Braves' Dustin Peterson: Good start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson replaced Matt Kemp in left field during Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Blue Jays and went 2-for-3 with a run scored.

The 22-year-old looked good in 2016 in his first taste of the high minors, hitting .282/.343/.431 in 524 at-bats for Double-A Mississippi with 12 home runs and 88 RBI. Peterson will start the season at Triple-A and isn't yet on the 40-man roster, which could hurt his chances of getting a call-up over the summer, but another solid campaign could put him in line for a bench spot in the majors in 2018. Barring an improvement in his power stroke, however, his eventual fantasy upside remains limited.
