Phillies' Dustin Peterson: Shipped to Phillies
The Phillies acquired Peterson from the Brewers on Tuesday for cash considerations and assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
With Philadelphia having dealt away Adam Haseley prior to the start of the season and with Odubel Herrera (oblique) and Mickey Moniak (hand) currently residing on the injured list, the addition of Peterson helps restore some organizational outfield depth. Peterson appeared in 17 games at the big-league level with the Tigers in 2019, but since that time, he's played exclusively at Triple-A Nashville. Over 329 plate appearances with the Brewers' top affiliate in 2021, Peterson slashed .271/.347/.416 with nine home runs and 56 RBI.... See More ... See Less

Brewers' Dustin Peterson: Gets MiLB deal from Milwaukee
Peterson signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old first baseman/corner outfielder attracted the attention of the Brewers through his performance in the Mexican Winter League, where he's slashed .316/.373/.602 with 11 home runs in 37 games with Monterrey. His contract with the Brewers doesn't include an invitation to big-league spring training, so Peterson will presumably report to Triple-A Nashville when the 2021 campaign begins.... See More ...

Peterson (elbow) is listed as an available bench option for the Tigers in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Peterson has yet to make his spring debut, but his inclusion on the lineup card is an indication that he's moved past the elbow injury that resulted in him being shut down for the remainder of the 2019 season in July. Detroit outrighted Peterson off the 40-man roster during the offseason, so he's slated to open the campaign at Triple-A Toledo.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Outrighted to minors
Peterson (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Peterson didn't appear in any games after July due to an elbow injury, and will now become eligible to be a minor-league free agent after the World Series. In 17 games with the Tigers this season, the 25-year-old hit .227/.277/.318 with six RBI.... See More ... See Less

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.

It's not clear whether the injury threatens the start of his 2020 campaign.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Sitting again Sunday
Peterson is not in Sunday's lineup against the White Sox.
It's not clear at this point if Peterson is still a primary option for the Tigers. He started Thursday and Friday but will sit for the second day in a row, this time against righty Reynaldo Lopez. Niko Goodrum shifts to left field while Brandon Dixon starts at first base, hitting sixth.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Heads to bench
Peterson is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Peterson had started six of the Tigers' last eight games, including the first two contests of the series with Chicago as a replacement for the banged-up Christin Stewart (quadriceps). With Stewart's stay on the injured list set to last through at least next weekend, Peterson should have some runway as the Tigers' main option in left field, but he's done nothing offensively yet to suggest he's worth much attention outside of AL-only leagues....

Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Replaces Stewart in left field
Peterson will start in left field and bat sixth Thursday against the White Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Peterson enters the lineup in place of Christin Stewart (quadriceps), who was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier in the day. The Tigers recalled Brandon Dixon from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move, but he's likely to serve merely as bench depth rather than challenging for the everyday role vacated by Stewart. Peterson thus looks like he may be in line for full-time work versus lefties and righties, making him someone to consider picking up in AL-only leagues.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Starting in right
Peterson is starting in right field and batting sixth in Saturday's game against the Twins.
Regular right fielder Nicholas Castellanos (toe) won't play Saturday or Sunday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports, so Peterson could start both games this weekend. Peterson has recorded only 20 at-bats so far this season, posting a .200/.200/.300 slash line and an RBI.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Gets first start
Peterson is starting in left field and batting eighth in Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.
The Tigers are mixing things up a bit for their third game of the season, and Peterson will step in to make his team debut. The 24-year-old had a solid spring, but he'll likely remain in a reserve role unless the Tigers are hit with some injuries.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Dustin Peterson: Makes Opening Day roster
Peterson has earned a spot on the Tigers' Opening Day roster, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
With JaCoby Jones slated to open the season on the IL, Peterson will break camp with the Tigers in a reserve outfield role. The 24-year-old owns a .325/.386/.450 slash line and 4:5 BB:K through 19 games this spring.... See More ... See Less
