4/19/22 : Phillies acquire OF Dustin Peterson
The Phillies have acquired OF Dustin Peterson from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for cash considerations. Peterson has been assigned to Lehigh Valley (AAA).
He’s primarily a left fielder/first baseman/DH and was the Padres 2nd round draft selection in the 2013 draft from Gilbert High School in Gilbert, AZ. Peterson is now 27 years old. The majority of his career has been in the minor leagues - he has played in 19 major league games - most coming with the 2019 Detroit Tigers ( the other 2 were with the 2018 Braves ). Last season at AAA Nashville he hit .271 with 9 home runs and 56 RBIs in 77 games ( 291 AB’s ). He’s played in 1,473 minor league games ( Padres, Tigers, Braves & Brewers ) and has a .263 batting average in 2,973 AB’s.
The organization has been short on outfielders at the upper levels of the minor league system - acquiring Peterson helps fill the void. From a fan’s perspective welcome to the Phillies Dustin !
