Keep an eye on Jace Peterson

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The future of our organization is churning in the minors and Jace Peterson makes quite a wave.

Jace Peterson, selected by the San Diego Padres in the first round (58th overall) of the 2010 First-Year Player draft out of McNeese State University, is most definitely a player to keep an eye on.

Peterson, at the age of 22, has done well for himself and the organization. Just last season while spending time in single-A Lake Elsinore, Jace knocked out seven homers while keeping his batting average at that magic level above .300. Peterson is also quite the base stealer, collecting 42 stolen bases in the 2013 season, and 51 in Fort Wayne in 2012.

This year at Spring Training the young shortstop's determination has not wavered. Peterson received a non-roster invite to Major League camp, and he has displayed his go-getting attitude every step along the way. When Chase Headley strained his right calf early in Spring Training, Peterson reportedly spoke with manager Bud Black about getting some playing time at third. Peterson has made several starts at third in Peoria as a result.

Jace Peterson is quite the interesting player and is certainly someone to keep an eye on in 2014.
