Tuesday's Stars

D.J. Peters, RF, Dodgers. Peters is a mountain of a man (6-foot-6, 225 pounds) with near top-of-the-scale raw power and surprising speed. After hitting 27 home runs last year, Peters has adeptly handled the jump to Double-A this year. He hit a pair of home runs last night, his sixth and seventh of the season. Peters power comes with bushels of strikeouts (40 in 117 at-bats), but he also hits the ball quite hard and is hitting .291/.380/.521.

Eloy Jimenez, OF, White Sox. Jimenez missed the start of the season with an injured pectoral muscle. He's been sensational since he returned. Jimenez hit his seventh home run of the season yesterday to raise his slash line to .333/.357/.679. He's averaging a home run every 11 at-bats.

Ryan Boldt, OF, Rays. Boldt is having an amazing week. He homered twice on Monday and followed it up with a 2-for-3 day with a home run and a stolen base. Boldt had only one home run for the season coming into Monday's game and had six home runs in his first two pro seasons, so this power surge is a new development.

Ronald Acuña, OF, Braves. Acuña's first 50 big league at-bats have been even better than expected. The top prospect in baseball hit his third home run for the Braves last night, providing the only run in a 1-0 Braves win over the Rays. Acuña is now hitting .320/.358/.600 for the Braves. Last year, he got better ever time he was promoted. Right now, his .958 OPS in the big leagues is the best OPS of his career.
