Dodgers' Turner: Joc Pederson only talks about hitting, ever
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson, who is competing for the starting job in center field, got his spring campaign started off on the right foot Wednesday against the White Sox. The highly touted prospect went 2 for 2 with one double and one run.
One person who was likely happy to see Pederson get off to a quick start was teammate Justin Turner, who spent the offseason working out in Los Angeles with the 22-year-old outfielder.
"He doesn't talk about anything but hitting, ever," Turner said, per the Los Angeles Times. "He loves to talk hitting. He's not afraid to ask questions, which I love. One of my pet peeves is when you're around guys who have a lot of valuable information and you don't ask them anything. When I'm around guys, I ask questions. I want to know what they're doing, what they're thinking, because I want to learn."
Report: Dodgers' Puig could start in center if Pederson falters
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) It's "pretty clear" the Dodgers would like outfield prospect Joc Pederson to win the everyday center fielder job in 2015, the Los Angeles Times reports, adding that the backup plan if Pederson falters could be rolling with Yasiel Puig in center.
"I don’t expect anything to be handed to me," Pederson said last weekend during the team's fan fest. "It never has been in the past. I still have to grow as a baseball player."
Carl Crawford is expected to be locked in at left field regardless of the performance of Pederson, who would start in center with Puig in right if the prospect wins a spot on the 25-man roster in spring training. If the team decides Pederson needs more minor-league seasoning, Puig could be shifted to center field, with Andre Ethier moving into the starting lineup and playing right field.
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.
|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.
