“All the off-seasons I have had where I have been a free agent I have tried to really really sign here,” Peterson said. So, I am comfortable here, my wife coached college here, I played college here, this is a secondary home. So, I am happy to be back.”

A 1st round pick by the Mariners in 2013, Peterson never got his shot at the big leagues. Now being back in Albuquerque and a solid spring, he feels solid coming into the year.

“I feel the best I have ever felt in my career, granted I am 30 so I got some more aches and pains, but other than that, mentally, at the plate, swing wise, I feel like I am at the best I have ever been at. So, regardless of results, what happens, mentally I am the best right now than I have ever been.”
