September 30, 2019
Peterson (elbow) was recalled by the Tigers on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Peterson opened the season on the big-league roster but was sent down in late April after hitting just .227/.227/.318 in 17 games. He spent the rest of the season in the minors and did not appear in any games after the end of July due to an elbow injury. It's not clear whether the injury threatens the start of his 2020 campaign.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Acquired from the Padres as a lesser part of the Justin Upton deal toward the end of 2014, the 22-year-old Peterson had arguably his best season as a professional in 2016. Finally healthy following that disastrous Carolina Mudcats bus crash in 2015, Peterson broke loose in 132 games for Double-A Mississippi, posting career bests in home runs, RBI and walks, while striking out less than once per game. Peterson does not appear to have one standout tool, though, and his lack of plus power knocks down his future fantasy potential a bit, particularly from a corner outfield position. He will stay in the outfield, though, as he proved a rather poor fielder at third base. Peterson likely will start the season at Triple-A Gwinnett with an eye towards making his big league debut by the end of the 2017 campaign.
