Drafted in the 8th round (269th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2012 (signed for $50,000)
A 40th-round pick out of high school, Peterson shifted to the closer's role for his senior season. In 30 appearances, he had a 3.19 ERA and recorded 10 saves while striking out 39 and walking 15 in 37 innings. Peterson has a good frame at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds and sits 92-95 mph with his fastball. He throws strikes, but needs to do a better job of commanding his fastball. His best secondary pitch is a slurvy curveball that sits in the upper 70s.
