07/12/2007 - College PREP - Long Beach, CA An instinctual, smart "baseball player". Showed great hands in the infield to go with solid overall actions and arm strength. Worked the count well in his at bats, and made consistent line drive contact. A longer look allowed his intangibles to show through. 7/12/07 Team One West: Peter is an athletic player with easy actions at two infield positions. Although he has good enough hands to play SS, he might move over to third in college. Defensively is where Straka shines. He possesses smooth hands and proper fielding actions to go along with his loose arm and arm strength. His backhand is above average as are his double plays. He has the right idea and awareness of the infield. Offensively, Peter has a short quick stroke that is short to and long through the zone. Everything about his stance is balanced and stays that way through the swing. There is no doubt that his power will increase as he gets stronger during his senior year.
