Rangers' DJ Peters: Sitting Tuesday

Rangers' DJ Peters: Not starting Saturday

Rangers' DJ Peters: Cranks three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Astros.

Peters' lone hit of the night was a big one, as he took Zack Greinke deep to center field for a three-run shot to extend the Rangers' lead to 8-0. The 25-year-old is hitting just .224/.224/.490 over 12 games in September but does have four home runs and 11 RBI over that span. Since being added to the big-league roster Aug. 2, Peters is slashing .204/.226/.456 with 11 homers, 29 RBI, 19 runs scored, a steal and 3:53 BB:K over 38 games. He's showcased some nice power at the plate, but strikeouts continue to remain a problem for the rookie outfielder.

Rangers' DJ Peters: On bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.

He gets the afternoon off after going 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI on Saturday. Jason Martin starts in left field and bats seventh.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 2-for-5 with a homer, a single, two runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Athletics.

Peters kicked off the Rangers' furious comeback late against Oakland with a two-run homer that brought Texas to within two in the eighth inning. The swing-first, ask-questions-later outfielder has reined it in a little bit in September (hitting .250 in the month, .207 for the season), but there are still an awful lot of strikeouts in his game.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Blasts pair of homers Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 4-for-5 with two home runs, a double and four RBI in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Angels.

Peters had four hits for the first time in his career and he went deep off Janson Junk in the second and third innings. He's been a streaky hitter this season, but he's batting .300 over his last 10 games. The 25-year-old is slashing .207/.234/.474 with nine long balls, 22 RBI and 14 runs scored in 158 plate appearances this season.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Homers again in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Monday's 4-3 win over the Rockies.

Peters got the scoring started for the Rangers with a solo home run to left in the fourth inning and later came around to score in the sixth. The 25-year-old has homered in back-to-back games and in four of his last seven. Since being added to the big-league roster earlier this month, Peters is slashing .200/.225/.453 with seven homers, 18 RBI, 12 runs scored, a steal and 2:35 BB:K over 25 games.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Blasts sixth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Sunday's 13-2 win over the Astros.

Peters doubled in the first inning, driving in Adolis Garcia. In addition, he cranked a solo home run in the fifth off Zack Greinke. He totaled three hits in Sunday's game for the first time this season. His offense has lacked in August -- as evidenced by his .189 average during the month -- and Peters is slashing just .187/.214/.418 with six homers, seven RBI and 10 runs in 132 plate appearances on the season.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and another run scored during Thursday's loss to Cleveland.

Batting cleanup, Peters rattled off a 349-foot shot in the eighth off Nick Wittgren to tally his sixth long ball of the year. The 25-year-old has earned a consistent spot in the lineup since Aug. 2, collecting five homers and 14 RBI in that span.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Batting cleanup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters is starting in left field and batting fourth Thursday against Cleveland.

Peters has been in the lineup for every game since Aug. 2, and he's hit .158 with four home runs, 13 RBI, seven runs, a stolen base and 29 strikeouts during that time. Jason Martin will get a day off Thursday, while Leody Taveras will start in center field.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Slots into cleanup spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters will start in left field and bat cleanup Thursday against Cleveland.

Peters has typically seen most of his work in center field and right field since joining Texas earlier this month, but he'll shift over to left field for the series finale in Cleveland while Jason Martin gets a day off. While starting each of Texas' last 20 games, Peters has slashed .158/.185/.342 with a 35.8 percent strikeout rate.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Goes yard in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 1-for-5 with a home run and four RBI on Tuesday against Cleveland.

Peters was hitless through four at-bats, though he did collect an RBI in the fifth inning. However, he made his final opportunity count, as he delivered a three-run home run in the ninth frame. It was his fifth long ball of the campaign, four of which have come in his last 10 starts. Since joining the Rangers on Aug. 3, Peters has hit just .166 with a 36.4 percent strikeout rate.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Adjustments pay off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Sunday's 7-4 win over Oakland.

Peters cracked three long balls during the three-game set against the Athletics, which came as a surprise after an initial non-descript run with the Rangers. He and manager Chris Woodward credit adjustments made to his stance for the sudden burst of power, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. The biggest tweak was to become more square in the batter's box. "He has the ability to check out pitches, but also has the adjustability to stay on some breaking balls and offspeed pitches while still hitting the fastball," Woodward said. Peters has appeared in all 12 games since the Rangers claimed him off waivers from the Dodgers, and with the new plate mechanics, he figures to get plenty more starts between now and the end of the season.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Struggling as everyday player
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters will start in center field and bat cleanup Sunday against the Athletics.

Since Eli White (elbow) was placed on the injured list Aug. 5, Peters has seized hold of an everyday role in the outfield. Peters will pick up his 12th consecutive start Sunday despite continuing to struggle at the dish during his extended run of playing time. Over the past 11 games, Peters is slashing .158/.171/.289 with a 36.6 percent strikeout rate.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Drives in three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's 8-6 win over the Athletics.

Peters drove in a run with a sacrifice fly as part of a three-run first inning for Texas. He later sealed the game with his two-run blast in the seventh. It was his second big-league home run and first since joining the Rangers earlier this month. He's gone 6-for-34 (.176) with three extra-base hits and five RBI through 10 games with Texas.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Knocks in lone run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters started in right field and went 0-for-2 with a sacrifice fly and an RBI in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Mariners.

It looked like Peters' second-inning sac fly might hold up, but the Rangers' bullpen were unable to hold the 1-0 lead. Peters made his eighth consecutive start since the Rangers claimed him off waivers from the Dodgers earlier in the month. He has history with Texas manager Chris Woodward, who was in the Dodgers organization before taking over as the Rangers manager, and that history is apparently a positive one. Peters is 5-for-28 (.179) with two doubles, two RBI and 13 strikeouts during his eight-start run. With Eli White (elbow) on the injured list, Peters and Jason Martin are getting ample at-bats.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Makes second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters started in right field and went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Angels.

Peters was recently claimed off waivers from the Dodgers, who designated him for assignment. Texas manager Chris Woodward is familiar with Peters from their days in the Los Angeles organization and is giving the 25-year-old outfielder a chance with the team in full evaluation mode. He's in the mix with Jason Martin and Eli White (elbow) for two outfield spots.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Joins big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters was added to the Rangers' 26-man roster Monday.

The 25-year-old was designated for assignment while at Triple-A with the Dodgers, and he'll immediately join the Rangers after being claimed off waivers Monday. Peters should serve as the fourth outfielder behind Jason Martin, Eli White and Adolis Garcia for Texas. David Dahl was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Rangers' DJ Peters: Catches on with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers claimed Peters off waivers from the Dodgers on Monday.

The 25-year-old outfielder lost his spot on the Dodgers' 40-man roster last week after Los Angeles needed room for starting pitcher Danny Duffy (forearm), whom the Dodgers acquired in a trade with Kansas City. A former top prospect in the Dodgers' system, Peters' outlook dimmed in recent years after he struggled to cut down his strikeout rates at the upper levels of the minors. Even if the high amount of swing and miss in Peters' game prevents him from consistently tapping into his considerable raw power, he'll at least have a clearer path to at-bats in the big leagues with the Rangers compared to the Dodgers, who are overflowing with quality outfielders. Peters has two minor-league options remaining, so he'll likely report to Triple-A Round Rock to begin his time with the Rangers organization.

Dodgers' DJ Peters: Loses roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters was designated for assignment Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Peters managed to reach the majors for the first time this season, and he hit .192/.382/.385 across 34 plate appearances. The bigger concern was his subpar performance with Triple-A Oklahoma City, as he struck at a 28.4 percent rate and had just a 71 wRC+ in 204 plate appearances. His designation opens a spot on the 40-man roster for Danny Duffy (forearm).
