The reason that I wanted this particular card is not just that I like the design of this set, which I do. Actually, I see Jace Peterson as a bounce-back candidate in 2018. This guy was a good prospect not that long ago. He has shown some ability at the Major League level, too, but hasn’t put everything together just yet. There is promise, though, as he showed he can be an above-average hitter at triple-A, and he has shown the ability to take a walk in the majors, too. If he can show the defense that he first did in the Majors in 2015 and be a league-average hitter, Peterson could be a big part of the Braves future.
Here’s to hoping Peterson has a much better career going forward. For me, it’s just another Atlanta Braves card of a player I have hope for.
