A South Carolina signee, Peters was expected to be one of the better junior college pitchers in the country. Instead he hurt his elbow just two innings into his first start of the season and had to have Tommy John surgery. Most likely he’ll now get to be a Gamecock, but before the injury he sat 92-95 mph and touched 97 with late life on his fastball and a surprisingly easy delivery. He had a promising changeup, a developing slider-ish cutter and a curveball.
