On Opening Day, Peterson made the Braves’ starting lineup after being invited to spring training.
Against the Miami Marlins on May 16, 2015, Peterson came to the plate with the bases loaded and blasted his first career home run, a grand slam. The Braves prevailed 5-3.
End-of-season stats for Peterson include a batting average of.239, OBP of.314, and SLG of.335 for the year.
As in 2015, he started the 2016 season as the Braves’ starting second baseman but struggled mightily in April and lost playing time before being optioned to the Gwinnett Braves on May 2, 2016.
As a result of the Kelly Johnson deal, Peterson was summoned to the majors on June 10. Gordon Beckham and A.J. Pierzynski shared time at second base when Peterson returned from injury.
Through the conclusion of 2016 and the entire year of 2017, he was a utility player.
