Derek Peterson - 2016-17 Perth Heat
Peterson is an American import from the Baltimore Orioles organisation who spent his second year with the Perth Heat during the 2016-17 ABL season. Peterson had previously spent the 2015-16 ABL season with the Heat, but missed all of the American 2016 season due to injury, hence his return to the Heat. For some reason, he doesn't seem to have played in 2017 either. The official Minor League Baseball website has him still listed as Active for the Orioles, however I suspect he may have been released during 2017 Spring Training.
