Matt Peterson, rhp
Rapides HS; Alexandria, La.

Opinions differ on whether the 6-foot-3, 195-pound Peterson is raw or polished--or falls somewhere in between. No matter, as he greatly improved his stock with a dominant high school season, going 11-1, 0.63 with 149 strikeouts and 31 walks in 78 innings. He routinely touched 94-95 mph and had an effective curve. Peterson pitches effortlessly with a long, loose and lean body. He does not have a Division I college option, which will make him an attractive target in the first or second round.
