According to a report out of Mexico, the Brewers will be signing 26-year-old right-handed first baseman and corner outfielder Dustin Peterson, once he passes a physical with the club.

NOTE: The home run leader in the ARCO Mexican Pacific League, Dustin Peterson, received a contract from the Milwaukee Brewers and traveled to the United States to undergo physical exams. The first baseman would make his return with the Sultanes de Monterrey on December 26.

Our best introduction to the baseball journey of the former (brief) big league Brave and Tiger would be via his Wikipedia page.

One would imagine this will be a minor league deal with an invite to major league training camp, but we can't rule out a big league contract until the club announces the signing. We know the Brewers have a gaping hole at first base at both the big league and AAA level, so the signing makes sense from that perspective.

Peterson's previous HR high was 12 in a full AA season in 2016, and he's hit 11 in pro ball in each of 2018 and 2019.

But he's discovered something this winter, slugging 11 HR's in just 133 AB's (37 games) with a line of .316/.373/.602 (OPS .975).

The best part of finding many of this winter's Peterson home run highlights is that it was easy, just check out Dustin's Twitter timeline.

First base defense, too!

Peterson does have third base experience, but not since his age 19 season in 2014.

So, barring a tough break bad surprise during the physical process, look for the Brewers to make official the signing fairly soon.

Welcome to the Crew's organization, Dustin!

According to this report out of Nicaragua, the Brewers are negotiating to have newly-acquired LHP Leo Crawford (Corey Knebel deal w/Dodgers) transfer his winter ball obligation from Nicaragua to the Dominican Republic.

Could be a combination of factors, including the organization wishing to get Crawford to a higher level caliber of play.

Crawford is dominating in Nicaragua -- five appearances (two starts, including his most recent outing, a five-inning scoreless start):

18.1 IP, 0.98 ERA, 12 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 16 K, .190 BAA

Peterson played for the Sugar Land Skeeters in 2020 and hit .309/.400/.500. His manager was Pete Incaviglia.

He's tearing up the Mexican Pacific Winter League to the tune of .316/.373/.602 with 11 HR in 150 AB's.

RHP Wilber Diaz has been released.


From July 2019:

Mass Haas said:
RHP Wilber Diaz, who was off-the-charts impressive statistically as a 17-year-old rookie DSL'er in 2018, was very ineffective in his first Maryvale Gold appearance back on June 18th (two hits, four walks in 1.1 innings) and hasn't pitched since. Bummer.


Diaz' brief but glorious DSL debut numbers in 2018 prompted a promotion to Maryvale at age 18 and just one island campaign, that's not very common for the Brewers. Diaz was also listed at 6'3", 170 upon signing, so a nice frame to build on.

Normally the Brewers provide injury updates in their media guide each spring, but nothing was posted on Diaz in the 2020 edition.

***

Those were heady times for fans of "Wilber's" in the Brewers system. RHP Wilber Perez was a couple of years older than Diaz, and also posted fantastic numbers.

Do you remember who Perez helped the Brewers net in a July 2018 trade? Scroll to the bottom of the link for more on Perez.

By the way, Perez continues to post fine figures, a bit high on walks. He was neither added to the 40-man nor taken in Rule 5 this year, but I imagine remains interesting in their system.

Have since been updated that Diaz had indeed undergone shoulder surgery. Darn.

@Brewers: The Brewers have signed LHP Hoby Milner and OF Dylan Cozens to Minor League contracts with invitations to Major League camp.

Dylan Cozens has a career .802 OPS over 8 minor league seasons. Cozens was a 2nd round pick of the Phillies in 2012, and is the second former 2nd round pick they’ve signed to a minor league deal this week (Dustin Peterson was a 2nd round pick in 2013). Cousins is probably best know for hitting 40 home runs in just 134 games playing for Double-A Reading in 2016.

Hoby Milner was also a 2012 draftee of the Phillies (7th round). He has a 3.40 ERA over 614.0 IP in the minors. Milner has only thrown 55.2 major league innings thus far.

Both are likely ticketed for Nashville this summer, but are intriguing enough as additional opportunities to see if you can catch lightning in a bottle.
