Some of the players we’ve profiled recently are going to be drafted on the strength of their tools and future upside. Then there are players like D.J. Peterson who are going to be drafted very high in June based on essentially what they are right now. Peterson is not a player you project, and not a player scouts dream on. He’s going to show you pretty much everything he’s going to be in the future right here and now, and what he looks like is a very dangerous right-handed slugger. But, he’s going to have to be evaluated very close this spring because he isn’t that “toolsy” player - his game at the next level will be as good as his bat allows it to be.
