Angels' Dustin Peterson: Catches on with Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was signed to a minor-league deal by the Angels on Friday, Taylor Blake Ward of Locked on Angels reports.

Peterson's deal includes an invitation to spring training, and the newcomer is penciled in to make an appearance in the Angels' split-squad contest against Kansas City on Friday. Peterson is likely to serve as an organizational depth for the Halos after hitting .227 in 44 at-bats with the Tigers in 2019.

Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Listed as bench option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (elbow) is listed as an available bench option for the Tigers in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

Peterson has yet to make his spring debut, but his inclusion on the lineup card is an indication that he's moved past the elbow injury that resulted in him being shut down for the remainder of the 2019 season in July. Detroit outrighted Peterson off the 40-man roster during the offseason, so he's slated to open the campaign at Triple-A Toledo.

Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Outrighted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Peterson didn't appear in any games after July due to an elbow injury, and will now become eligible to be a minor-league free agent after the World Series. In 17 games with the Tigers this season, the 25-year-old hit .227/.277/.318 with six RBI.

September 30, 2019 10:16 PM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Called up by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (elbow) was recalled by the Tigers on Monday.

Peterson opened the season on the big-league roster but was sent down in late April after hitting just .227/.227/.318 in 17 games. He spent the rest of the season in the minors and did not appear in any games after the end of July due to an elbow injury. It's not clear whether the injury threatens the start of his 2020 campaign.

Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Dealing with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson had his left elbow wrapped up after Triple-A Toledo's game Wednesday, Brian Buckey of The Toledo Blade reports.

Peterson suffered the injury during a collision at first base. The specifics of the injury are not yet known, but manager Doug Mientkiewicz said the injury "did not look good."

April 28, 2019 05:40 PM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.

Peterson was in the midst of a five-game hitting streak at the dish, but he'll head down to the minors for the first time this season. He's batting .227 with four doubles, six RBI and a stolen base through 16 games in the big leagues this year.

Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Sitting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is not in Sunday's lineup against the White Sox.

It's not clear at this point if Peterson is still a primary option for the Tigers. He started Thursday and Friday but will sit for the second day in a row, this time against righty Reynaldo Lopez. Niko Goodrum shifts to left field while Brandon Dixon starts at first base, hitting sixth.

Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Peterson had started six of the Tigers' last eight games, including the first two contests of the series with Chicago as a replacement for the banged-up Christin Stewart (quadriceps). With Stewart's stay on the injured list set to last through at least next weekend, Peterson should have some runway as the Tigers' main option in left field, but he's done nothing offensively yet to suggest he's worth much attention outside of AL-only leagues.

Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Replaces Stewart in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will start in left field and bat sixth Thursday against the White Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Peterson enters the lineup in place of Christin Stewart (quadriceps), who was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier in the day. The Tigers recalled Brandon Dixon from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move, but he's likely to serve merely as bench depth rather than challenging for the everyday role vacated by Stewart. Peterson thus looks like he may be in line for full-time work versus lefties and righties, making him someone to consider picking up in AL-only leagues.

April 13, 2019 12:36 PM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Starting in right
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is starting in right field and batting sixth in Saturday's game against the Twins.

Regular right fielder Nicholas Castellanos (toe) won't play Saturday or Sunday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports, so Peterson could start both games this weekend. Peterson has recorded only 20 at-bats so far this season, posting a .200/.200/.300 slash line and an RBI.

March 30, 2019 06:40 PM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Gets first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is starting in left field and batting eighth in Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

The Tigers are mixing things up a bit for their third game of the season, and Peterson will step in to make his team debut. The 24-year-old had a solid spring, but he'll likely remain in a reserve role unless the Tigers are hit with some injuries.

March 25, 2019 04:40 PM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson has earned a spot on the Tigers' Opening Day roster, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

With JaCoby Jones slated to open the season on the IL, Peterson will break camp with the Tigers in a reserve outfield role. The 24-year-old owns a .325/.386/.450 slash line and 4:5 BB:K through 19 games this spring.

March 24, 2019 09:48 AM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Returns to major-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is back in Detroit's major-league camp, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

While nothing is official yet, Peterson looks poised to break camp in a reserve outfield role with JaCoby Jones (shoulder) expected to open the season on the IL. The 24-year-old hit a solid .306/.375/.417 with one homer and a 4:4 BB:K through 18 games this spring.

March 19, 2019 10:56 AM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers optioned Peterson to Triple-A Toledo on Monday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.

With a .306 average, one home run and nine RBI in 18 Grapefruit League appearances, Peterson was one of the Tigers' standout performers this spring. Alas, it wasn't enough for the 24-year-old to crack his first Opening Day roster. He'll likely get the call back to Detroit at some point this season but won't be in line for regular at-bats unless the options ahead of him on the organization's outfield depth chart miss extended time.

March 1, 2019 09:44 AM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: First homer of spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run and a walk in Thursday's game against Atlanta.

Peterson blasted a three-run homer to center field to cap off a five-run first inning for Detroit. He's already collected five hits so far this spring in 12 at-bats to go along with five RBI.

September 6, 2018 04:04 PM
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Claimed by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was scooped up off waivers by Detroit on Thursday and optioned to Triple-A Toledo.

Peterson was designated for assignment by Atlanta this past weekend. In order to make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Tigers shifted John Hicks (hip) to the 60-day DL. Throughout the 2018 campaign, Peterson has played in two big-league games, and slashed .268/.324/.406 with 11 home runs and 55 RBI in 107 contests at the Triple-A level.

Braves' Dustin Peterson: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was designated for assignment Sunday.

Peterson slashed .268/.324/.406 with 11 homers and 55 RBI through 107 games at Triple-A Gwinnett in 2018. He received just two at-bats in the big leagues this season.

May 31, 2018 07:44 PM
Braves' Dustin Peterson: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

Peterson will head back to Gwinnett after going 0-for-2 in a pair of pinch-hit opportunities during his brief stint with the Braves. Peter Bourjos was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding roster move and should serve as the Braves' fourth outfielder until Ronald Acuna (knee) is cleared to return.

May 28, 2018 05:28 PM
Braves' Dustin Peterson: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson had his contract purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Peterson will take the roster spot of fellow prospect Ronald Acuna (knee), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old owns a solid .267/.319/.457 line with four homers and 19 RBI in 26 games with the Stripers this season. Preston Tucker, who is starting in place of Acuna on Monday, looks poised to see the bulk of opportunities in left field, likely leaving Peterson to a reserve role.

March 11, 2018 05:24 PM
Braves' Dustin Peterson: Making case for bench spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson went 2-for-4 with a walk, a home run, three runs scored and four RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates.

The 23-year-old couldn't get on track last season after he suffered a hand injury in spring training, but this year in camp, Peterson appears to be back in the form that saw him slash .282/.343/.431 at Double-A Mississippi in 2016. He's not one of the Braves' top prospects by any means, but the team doesn't have established outfield reserves on the roster. If Peterson keeps hitting and things fall in his favor, he could work his way into a spot on the Opening Day roster.
