12 382 Cincinnati Reds Brent Peterson SS Calif. $100,000
Peterson is a high-energy grinder with athleticism and versatility, giving him a chance to be a valuable utilityman in pro ball. He has decent infield actions and a solid-average arm, but he can play out of control at times, making a lot of throws off-balance and on the run. He may not be an everyday shortstop, but has enough tools to handle a variety of positions. Peterson is a quick-twitch athlete with plus speed and good hand-eye coordination. He takes a big swing and scouts aren't sold he'll hit at the higher levels of pro ball.
