A day after signing first-rounder Cory Spangenberg, the Padres agreed to terms with another premium pick on Saturday. They reached a deal with sandwich-rounder Jace Peterson for a $624,600 bonus, matching MLB's recommendation for his No. 58 overall draft slot.
A shortstop from McNeese State, where he was also a cornerback on the football team, Peterson stands out most on the diamond with his well above-average speed. He has a line-drive lefthanded swing and a strong arm at shortstop.
