On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers added more depth to their Minor League system as they acquired Brock Peterson. The first baseman was drafted in the 49th round of the 2002 draft by the Minnesota Twins and has spent much of his career in the minor leagues.

The Dodgers have made it a point to fill out their once maligned farm system since the Guggenheim ownership group took over in 2012. If Peterson does get called up to the Majors, it will likely be to backup first base; similar to the roles Jamie Romak and Clint Robinson have held.

In 72 games with the Nationals’ Triple-A affiliate this season, Peterson hit .250 with six home runs, 31 RBIs and had a .367 slugging percentage. He was called up last season with the St. Louis Cardinals and hit .077 in 26 at-bats.
