TOLEDO, OHIO – Johnsonburg native and Detroit Tigers’ infield prospect Cole Peterson has been promoted to Class AAA Toledo according to the Tigers and reported by Emily C. Waldon of Baseball America and The Athletic.

Peterson began the season at Class AA Erie, where he hit .385 (5-for-13) to begin the season. Peterson had a brief cameo in Toldeo in 2019 before the 2020 minor league season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In that stint, he had three hits in 14 at-bats.

Peterson is widely regarded as one of the top defensive shortstops in the minors.
