    Dustin is the younger brother of New Mexico third baseman D.J. Peterson, which has helped boost his draft stock this spring. With D.J. playing so well in college, some scouts feel like they missed him in high school and have scouted Dustin heavily as a result. He played well in March in front of many high-profile executives in Arizona for spring training, which stuffed him further up draft boards. Dustin is more advanced than D.J. was at the same age. He has lightning quick hands and shows a sweet swing with the ability to create loft and backspin. He projects to hit for solid average and above-average power to all fields. Where he winds up defensively is a bigger question mark. He plays shortstop for his high school team, but he'll have to move at the next level. Already 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, Peterson is a fringy runner. Scouts who like him think he'll be able to handle third base, but he'll need to strengthen his below-average arm. Left field is also a possibility. Peterson is committed to Arizona State, but will likely be picked highly enough to head straight to the pro ranks.
