23 709 Tampa Bay Rays Trevor Petersen RHP Texas
Righthander Trevor Petersen has size (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) and arm strength (his fastball sits at 88-90 mph and touches 94) on his side. He slings the ball from a low arm angle that makes it difficult to stay on top of his slurvy slider and will need a lot of work, but the raw material is there. He's considered signable despite a commitment to Louisiana Tech.
