MLB Draft: M's Choose DJ Peterson in 1st Round

DJ Peterson

Corner Infielder from the University of New Mexico.

21 years old

Bats/ Throws R/R

6’1” 190 pounds

College Stats: .408/.520/.807, 25 doubles, 18 homeruns, 72 rbis.

Brief Thoughts:

Good selection. He’s a good pure hitter who will hit for average and for power, and he doesn’t appear to be too far from the majors. Finding a position for him may be a bit of a struggle, but you can always make room for a good bat.

There is much more to come on Peterson and the following Mariner selections here at Sodo Mojo.
