A once-top prospect in the Dodgers’ organization, Peters struggled to find a role with the team.

Called up in 2021, Peters was ranked as high as the No. 6 prospect in the Dodgers’ organization. However, he went just 5-34 (.192) with one home run and four RBIs in his brief time with the team.

The Dodgers ultimately DFA’d Peters last season, and he was picked up on waivers by the Rangers.
