    Peterson has some of the best stuff in the Southeastern Conference, but you wouldn’t know it by his statistical performance. When he’s locked in, Peterson can attack away with a 92-97 mph fastball and an above-average 83-85 mph slider. Optimistic scouts can dream on Peterson’s slider eventually becoming a plus pitch, but his fastball is relatively straight. Too often, Peterson is not locked in. He has a tendency to hang a breaking ball or leave a fastball over the heart of the plate. It’s a little puzzling and Peterson’s 7.6 strikeouts per nine innings are less than what would be expected for a power reliever. There is still plenty of potential in Peterson’s talented right arm, but a team picking him will be counting on getting more out of him in the future.
