Jake Peter discusses the jump from Birmingham to Charlotte, and Winston-Salem gets no-hit

BB&T Ballpark 1 Jim Margalus / South Side Sox

Jake Peter’s 18-game hitting streak came to an end in Charlotte’s 8-1 loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, but one figures he wasn’t going to hit .430 forever.

At any rate, Jonathan Lee had a brief chat with Peter before the game:

Q. How was your experience jumping between Double A Birmingham and here in AAA Charlotte last season?

A. I think I really made strides last season. Being in AA and AAA is a lot different than being in A ball, I definitely feel like I made great strides as a player and worked my hardest every day to get better. I was fortunate enough to have a good first half and get an opportunity up here in Charlotte. I think that just aided in my development as a player.

Q. When the White Sox made the trade for Yoan Moncada, did you instantly know your situation would change?

A. I knew there would be some repercussions. He's a great player, I saw him in Spring Training, it was fun to watch. I just try to come out every day and try to become a better player and work harder to move up the ladder. When my time comes it comes.

Q. When you were in Birmingham, you know Moncada would eventually get called up and that would mean you most likely get promoted here, what was your mindset working through the season in Alabama?

A. We had a great staff (in Birmingham), my hitting coach, Cole Armstrong helped me out a lot, I think that was key to my development. He helped me try to make those little strides to become a better player overall.

Q. You made this same transition from AA to AAA last season, was it easier to make the move this season having already done it once?

A. I kinda knew what to expect, I knew what this ballpark looked like. I knew the early morning flight, so I was definitely more comfortable with it. It was easier for me because I brought less stuff this year, so I didn't have to pack as many things. I think the transition went a lot smoother this year than last year.

Q. You're wearing the same #10 that Moncada wore here, has the talent stayed within the number?

A. I don't know, it might be the power of the number (laughing), I've been fortunate to have a great start. We've been playing really well this last few weeks, everyone seems to be hitting the ball really good so hopefully we can keep it going.
