Phillies acquire outfielder Dustin Peterson from the Milwaukee Brewers
The Phillies have acquired outfielder Dustin Peterson from the Milwaukee Brewers for cash considerations, according to the team.
Peterson made his major league debut in 2019 with the Atlanta Braves, where he recorded just two at-bats. He was claimed by the Tigers in 2019, where he played 17 games in the majors for Detroit. He hit .227/.277/.318 in that time, with 10 hits, four doubles, and six RBIs in 44 at-bats.
Dustin Peterson was signed to a minor league contract by the Brewers and hasn’t played in the majors since. He spent his 2021 season in Triple-A, where he slashed .272/.347/.416 in 77 games. Peterson logged 9 HRs, 56 RBIs, 79 hits, and 15 doubles in that time.
Peterson has been assigned to Triple-A, the team announced. With Matt Vierling going through a massive slump, and Odubel Herrera and Mickey Moniak still hurt, the team has found their last case emergency option that they can store down in the minors. Dustin Peterson can play some infield as well, with 129 games at 1st throughout his career in the minors.
