BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Shane Peterson had the obscene walk rate that is common in the Oakland system, and the 24-year old enjoyed the best 38 games of his professional life in his second go-around with the River Cats.
2010 Part of the package received from St. Louis for Matt Holliday, Shane Peterson is a line-drive machine with above-average speed, but he needs to improve his power and patience to stick in either outfield corner.
2009 Shane Peterson was drafted in the second round last year out of Long Beach State, and the former Dirtbags star impressed with his advanced plate approach while playing all three outfield spots and first base.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)well, the trade of Chris Carter to Houston probably makes Moss the full-time 1B in Oakland. Don't see any platoon mate for him on that roster.
(Chris from LA)
There's still Barton (he of the internal organs I mentioned earlier), Lowrie, Rosales, Seth Smith...even Michael Taylor and Shane Peterson have been taking grounders there recently, according to MLB.com's Jane Lee. It seems like Oakland is still hoping to avoid having Moss face too many lefties. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chances these outfielders will have starting jobs by the middle of May: Oswaldo Arcia ____ Jackie Bradley ____ Shane Peterson ____ Trayce Thompson ____
(Hoot Stromboli from Snowed In)
Hoot, I can't place percentages on each. I think Thompson is the most likely because the White Sox always seem aggressive with their prospects. I would put Peterson next—if only because I think an injury to Beltran could happen and it's too early for OSCAR—then Bradley and finally Arcia. (R.J. Anderson)
2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)Can you breakdown the Holliday trade. I love Wallace but don't know anything about Shane Peterson or Clayton Mortenson.
(tonipeluso from Oakland, CA)
Cardinals get 2 months of Holliday, As get two prospects (Peterson and Mortenson) that Kevin Goldstein likes but doesn't love, and Wallace, who was likely a 1B in the MLB, and I'm pretty sure Pujols ain't going anywhere. Billy Beane was able to trade Holliday for more than he traded to GET Holliday, and the Cardinals legitimately upgrade their outfield. Is it too cliche to say win-win? (Eric Seidman)
