LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Moss Bluff native Jace Peterson was placed on outright waivers by the Orioles on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

On January 5, 2018, Peterson signed a minor league contract with the Yankees, resulting in an invitation to spring training. On April 7, Peterson was promoted to the major leagues, but only played three games before returning to the minors on April 13. He re-signed with the Yankees on April 16, but then was removed from the roster again on April 22.

On April 24, Peterson claimed off waivers by the Baltimore Orioles. In his first game with the O’s, Peterson hit a double and collected two RBI’s in three at-bats. He ended the season playing in 93 games, hitting .195 with 3 home runs and 28 RBI’s.

The Orioles want to re-sign him after the non-tender deadline. But, it seems like Peterson’s path to a major-league roster will likely come via a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.
