UNM first baseman DJ Peterson is projected to be a 1st round pick in the MLB Amateur Draft this summer. Baseball America predicts Peterson will be the 11th overall pick in the draft going to the New York Mets.
In his mock draft, Jim Callis writes:
11. METS: New York appears to be targeting college bats. If Collin Moran doesn’t get to the Mets, they’ll pick between Peterson and Missisippi State outfielder Hunter Renfroe.
PROJECTED PICK: D.J. PETERSON.
Peterson is currently hitting .410 and leading the Lobos in runs, homers and RBI's.
