    Peter and Creighton play their home games at spacious TD Ameritrade Park Omaha, muting his power. He profiles as an offensive second baseman for some evaluators and as a reliever for others. He has tremendous arm strength at 5-foot-11, running his fastball up to 92-94 mph at times. He didn't pitch the last six weeks of the year with a tender arm, as his defense and bat were too important for the Bluejays. The lefthanded-hitting 185-pounder uses a short, strong swing to generate gap power. He shines at turning the double play. He lacks the actions and quickness for shortstop but may be able to handle third base thanks to his arm strength, making a utility role possible. He's a fringy runner.
