It was almost 30 hours ago that the Devil Rays made David Price the No. 1 pick in the draft, and with their final pick in the 50th round, the Devil Rays chose another lefty, Mark Peterson from Lincoln Park Academy in Fort Pierce, Fla.Peterson looked like a potential top-five-round pick a couple of years ago when his lean, loose fram was producing fastballs with life. While he didn’t need surgery this year, he came down with an injury and wasn’t able to reestablish his stock in time for the draft. Peterson could develop into a three-pitch lefthander with solid-average fastball velocity if he regains the form he once showed.
