The Brewers announced that they have selected the contract of infielder/outfielder Jace Peterson from Triple-A Nashville. He’ll take the roster spot of infielder Keston Hiura, whom the Brewers optioned on Monday.
The 31-year-old Peterson was with the Brewers earlier in the season, but they designated him for assignment on May 24. That came in spite of a productive year-plus offensive showing for Peterson, who has batted .203/.371/.391 (114 wRC+) with four home runs in 89 plate appearances as a Brewer since 2020. But Peterson hasn’t typically been that effective in the majors, evidenced by his lifetime .227/.317/.333 mark across 1,721 trips to the plate with a few teams. Regardless of how he hits, though, Peterson has shown that he’s versatile enough as a defender to line up all over the diamond.
