The Oakland A's have traded infielder Jace Peterson to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for right-hander Chad Patrick.
The A's are also sending cash considerations to the D-backs in the swap. Peterson, 33, has provided some speed on the basepaths with 11 swipes on the season but he is also hitting just .221 with six homers across 324 plate appearances. He will slide into a utility role with the D-backs, previously occupied by Josh Rojas who was traded to the Seattle Mariners as part of a package for reliever Paul Sewald on Monday.
A's infielder Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Giants.
Peterson notched a single but struck out twice in four trips to the plate on Wednesday and will get the night off 24 hours later. He has provided some speed with 11 stolen bases on the season but is hitting just .215 with six homers and a .627 OPS across 90 appearances.
Jace Peterson came up big for the Athletics on Wednesday, launching a home run and driving in two runs to help secure a 6-5 win over the Red Sox.
This strong showing adds to his season-long contributions, where he has displayed a mix of power and speed with six home runs and 10 stolen bases. However, Peterson's batting average remains low at .212, and his strikeout rate sits at 0.241, indicating room for improvement in his overall offensive production.
A's infielder Jace Peterson is back in the starting lineup Monday versus the Rays.
Peterson entered Sunday's game as a defensive replacement at third base but didn't get a chance to hit. The 33-year-old is hitting .223 with five homers, eight stolen bases, and a .659 OPS across 202 trips to the plate on the season.
Jace Peterson had a game to remember on Tuesday, going 5-for-5 with two home runs and five RBIs in the Athletics' 11-2 win over the Pirates.
Peterson's impressive showing at the plate accounted for nearly half of the team's runs and helped secure the victory. While his season-long numbers have been lackluster with a .218 batting average and only five home runs, performances like this one show the potential he has to be a valuable asset for the team moving forward.
