D.J. Peters was on the 40-man roster for the Dodgers all season, but never got the call-up to make his major-league debut. He spent the whole year at the alternate site at USC.

With a plethora of outfielders already on the big-league roster, it made sense as to why Peters didn’t get an opportunity. At 6-foot-6, Peters has quite the build for a hitter. In 455 career games in the minors, Peters has hit a total of 92 home runs.

The last time we saw him was in 2019 when he spent time in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. He finished the year with a combined 23 home runs and 81 RBI. However, he struck out quite a bit. He finished the season with 158 strikeouts, which was about 37 percent of the time... not ideal.

Depending on the outfield situation in 2021, Peters should have an opportunity to crack the roster and make his debut at some point.
