    Peterson has excelled as a closer in his first season at Wichita State after two years at Des Moines Area (Iowa) CC, and he has a pair of quality pitches that give him a ceiling of a set-up man in the big leagues. Oddly enough, he hasn't been crosschecked as much as his talent would merit. Peterson deals with a low-90s fastball that peaks at 95 mph and a tight slider that he can gets strikes with, both in and out of the zone. He's not imposing at 6-foot-1 and 198 pounds, but he generates above-average stuff with a clean delivery rather than effort. He's making progress with his changeup and has average control, so he could get a look as a starter in pro ball. Peterson has stayed healthy this spring after a pinched nerve in his neck affected the sensation in his index and middle fingers on his pitching hand in 2012.
