Top Prospect Alert - Samone Peters

By Robert Sherry

Samone Peters: Your classic high risk, high reward type of prospect. Peters is a huge 6-foot-7, 260 pound, 21-year-old slugger who possesses possibility some of the best raw power upside of anyone in the Cincinnati Reds system. But he also has piled up strikeouts at a huge
rate which could lead to his downfall making it to the majors.

This season at Single-A Clinton in the Midwest League, Peters has hit 20 homers but has struck out a total of 192 times with only 32 walks in 439 at-bats, resluting in just a .207 average. Last season was similar for Peters, while spending part of the season at Clinton (.221, 15 HR, 46 RBI, 13 2B, 1 3B, 32 R, 17 BB, and 131 SO in 290 AB) and at Billings (.225, 9 HR, 23 RBI, 3 2B, 13 R, 5 BB, and 57 SO 111 AB). He would rate
out as a average left fielder.

To have a future in the Reds plans, Peters needs to quickly improve his strikeout number drastically over the next year. If he can do this, he could be a force, if not, he may never find success in the upper minors.
