Jace Peterson went 2-for-4 With a homer and drove in four runs in a rout of the Marlins on Saturday.
Peterson drove in two while picking up his first homer of the year in the fifth off of Merandy Gonzalez, and he drove in two more runs on a ground-rule double in the second. His line still sits at .196/.320/.308 on the season, and despite his strong effort on Sunday, he offers no long-term fantasy value. Jun 17 - 4:43 PM

Jace Peterson went 1-for-3 and drove home the Orioles' lone run in Wednesday's lopsided loss to the White Sox.

Peterson's RBI single off of Dylan Covey in the second inning gave the Orioles an early 1-0 lead, but that would wind up being the extent of their offense. After a hot start, Peterson has come crashing back to Earth and is now slashing a putrid .192/.314/.274 with zero homers and nine RBI through 86 plate appearances.
May 23 - 11:20 PM

Jace Peterson came off the bench to deliver a pinch-hit three-run triple in Wednesday's 10-7 road loss against the Angels.

Peterson has rolled up seven RBI over his past seven games as he slowly gets acclimated into a new league with his new team. Despite the hot streak he is only worth using as a middle infielder in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues at the moment.
May 3 - 2:53 AM

Jace Peterson had another nice night at the plate in Friday's win over the Tigers, going 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI.

Peterson also scored a run in the contest, and for the second time this season he also swiped third base while the opposing defense had their infield shifted. He's off to a nice start with the Orioles, hitting .300/.391/.400 with two stolen bases in his first 23 plate appearances.
Apr 27 - 9:38 PM

Orioles claimed INF/OF Jace Peterson off waivers from the Yankees.

Apr 24 - 1:58 PM

Yankees designated INF/OF Jace Peterson for assignment.

Apr 22 - 10:39 AM

Yankees re-signed INF/OF Jace Peterson to a one-year contract.

Well, that's interesting. Peterson just elected free agency after clearing waivers, but the Yankees brought him back and will put him on the active roster for Monday's game. The 27-year-old went 3-for-9 in his previous stay and will function in a utility role in his return.
Apr 16 - 2:48 PM

Jace Peterson has elected free agency.

Peterson was designated for assignment by the Yankees earlier in the week and passed through waivers unclaimed. He'll look for work elsewhere rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Apr 15 - 11:32 PM

Yankees designated INF/OF Jace Peterson for assignment.

Peterson went 3-for-9 during his short stay in the major leagues. The versatile 27-year-old could draw some interest from other teams on the waiver wire.
Apr 10 - 3:28 PM

Yankees purchased the contract of INF/OF Jace Peterson from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Apr 7 - 9:55 AM

Jace Peterson went 0-for-4 on Thursday and is batting just .115 this spring.

Peterson hasn't been able to open any eyes with the Yankees this spring after getting non-tendered by the Braves over the winter. He might be looking at spending most of 2018 in Triple-A.
Mar 22 - 7:10 PM

Yankees signed INF/OF Jace Peterson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The Braves non-tendered Peterson last month rather than pay him a raise in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The 27-year-old utility player is a career .234/.319/.331 hitter across parts of four major league seasons.
Jan 5 - 3:40 PM

Braves non-tendered INF/OF Jace Peterson.

Peterson, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time, hit just .215/.318/.317 in 215 plate appearances at the major league level this past season. He'll try his luck in free agency.
Fri, Dec 1, 2017 09:12:00 PM

Braves recalled INF/OF Jace Peterson from Triple-A Gwinnett.

The 27-year-old has struggled in his time with the Braves this season, slashing .187/.275/.268 with one homer and 10 RBI in 138 plate appearances. He'll function in a utility role in the absence of Sean Rodriguez.
Sat, Aug 5, 2017 03:21:00 PM

Braves optioned INF/OF Jace Peterson to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Peterson was redundant with Sean Rodriguez and Danny Santana coming back from the DL. He should be back down the stretch.
