Tigers' DJ Peters: Lands minors deal with Detroit
Peters agreed to a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Peters played 85 games with the Lotte Giants of the Korea Baseball Organization in 2022, struggling to a .228/.299/.402 slash line before being released in July. He finished the season in the Nationals' system, posting a .455 OPS in 51 plate appearances over 13 games with Triple-A Rochester. Once an intriguing prospect, the 27-year-old will provide Detroit with some outfield depth in the minors and is likely to open 2023 with Triple-A Toledo.... See More ... See Less

While he was able to trim his strikeout rate to a respectable 21.8 percent, well below the 34.2 percent he managed in his 70-game MLB debut last season, he hit an unremarkable .228/.299/.402 in 85 games. He'll report to Triple-A Rochester for now.... See More ... See Less
DJ Peters: To play in KBO
Peters is close to signing a contract with the Lotte Giants of the KBO, Daniel Kim of MBC Sports+ reports.
As Kim outlines, playing in the KBO is a good option for players like Peters who just lost their spot on 40-man rosters, given the uncertainty of what lies ahead in the coming months. Peters is one of the more talented hitters to head to the KBO in recent years, and his massive raw power should allow him to put up gaudy numbers overseas before potentially returning stateside....
