Joc Pederson could make impact down stretch
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/3/14) The most notable part of Joc Pederson's first major-league start Tuesday is that it came with this comment from manager Don Mattingly:
"The one thing about Joc that everyone in the organization is pretty much in concert with is, this guy is our best defensive center fielder," Mattingly told the Los Angeles Times. "He's probably the only true center fielder we have at this point."
Pederson was filling in for a slumping Yasiel Puig then, but sure enough, even with Puig's return to the lineup, there he was again in center field Wednesday against the Nationals. Puig had moved over to right.
It's a big deal because, as I pointed out in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, Pederson was a George Springer-level offensive force at Triple-A Albuquerque prior to his promotion, batting .303 with 33 homers, 30 steals and a 1.017 OPS in 445 at-bats. Hitter-friendly league or not, those numbers are intimidating.
If his glove keeps him in the lineup, he could end up making a big contribution in Fantasy. Certainly in five-outfielder leagues, he's well worth a flier.
Dodgers make September call-ups
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/14) The Dodgers recalled outfielder Joc Pederson, second baseman Alex Guererro, catcher Tim Federowicz and pitcher Yimi Garcia Monday with rosters expanding in September.
Pederson closed out his first season with Triple-A Albuquerque by hitting .303/.435/.582 with 33 home runs, 78 RBI and 30 stolen bases in 445 at-bats.
In addition, the team activated pitcher Chris Perez from the disabled list. Perez has been out since Aug. 3 while nursing an ankle injury.
Joc Pederson, Alex Guerrero to be promoted in September
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/17/14) Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti told MLB Network Radio Sunday prospects Joc Pederson and Alex Guerrero are expected to be promoted to the majors when rosters expand Sept. 1.
Pederson is considered the 18th-best prospect by MLB.com and Baseball America.
"You'll probably see them on Sept 1st," Colletti said. "If today was Sept. 1, I'd be inclined to bring them both [up]."
Report: Dodgers may trade top prospect for nonrental
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(7/30/14) The Dodgers "haven't flat out said no" to trading one of their top three prospects for a player, as long as that player isn't due to be a free agent after the season, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Previous reports have said that outfielder Joc Pederson, third baseman Corey Seager and pitcher Julio Urias were off the table in trade talks, but that only applies to a rental like Jon Lester. The Phillies and Rays may be able to get the Dodgers to part with at least one of the team's top prospects in a deal for Cole Hamels or David Price, respectively, though neither trade has been reported to be in the works.
|2014 summary: Joc Pederson brought his blend of power, patience, speed -- and strikeouts -- to Triple-A Albuquerque, but despite a strong performance overall, the crowded outfield situation kept him away from the majors until rosters expanded in September. The organization's top prospect did everything in a big way, batting .303 with 33 home runs, 30 stolen bases and 149 strikeouts in 445 at-bats. A brief trial with the Dodgers did not go nearly as well; Pederson went 4 for 28 (.143) with no extra base hits.|
Playing time status: By dealing Matt Kemp to the Padres, the Dodgers finally cleared a space in their outfield for Pederson, who is the likely opening day starter in center field.
2015 outlook: With a full year of major league action likely ahead of him, Pederson is worth a pick in the middle rounds in standard mixed Rotisserie drafts. His penchant for strikeouts makes him more of a late-round option in points leagues.
