The Dodgers announced Saturday that Joc Pederson has been added to their playoff roster for the NLCS.
He's taking the place of Pedro Baez. With All-Star shortstop Corey Seager sidelined, the Dodgers needed to add some extra left-handed thump, and that's exactly what Pederson brings to the table. The 25-year-old slashed .212/.331/.407 with 11 homers and 35 RBI in 102 games during the regular season. Oct 14 - 1:37 PM

Joc Pederson went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI as the Dodgers beat the Rockies on Sunday afternoon in Colorado.

Pederson had an RBI double in the fifth inning to extend the Dodgers' lead to 4-0. He then capped off their scoring with another run-scoring double in the seventh. Pederson wraps up a disappointing regular season hitting just .212/.331/.407 with 11 homers and 35 RBI.

Dodgers recalled OF Joc Pederson from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Pederson went 8-for-56 (.143) over his final 14 games with OKC and he is not in the starting lineup for Los Angeles on Tuesday night against the visiting Diamondbacks. The 25-year-old outfielder will probably operate as a bench bet for the Dodgers down the stretch.
Sep 5 - 6:21 PM

Joc Pederson went 8-for-56 (.143) with one homer and one double over 14 games to finish out the regular season with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Ouch. This was after Pederson found himself in a 2-for-41 (.049) funk prior to his demotion on August 19. He's slated to rejoin the Dodgers later this week now that the Triple-A season is over, but look for him to have a diminished role down the stretch.

Joc Pederson has only played left field since being demoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts noted that Chris Taylor has looked more comfortable in center field, whereas Pederson is capable of playing either center or left. Pederson is 4-for-22 at the plate since his demotion and his role with the big club for the rest of the season is very much up in the air.
Aug 27 - 2:28 PM

Dodgers optioned OF Joc Pederson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

With Friday's addition of Curtis Granderson, the struggling Pederson was squeezed out of his role as the club's primary center fielder against right-handed pitching. The 25-year-old was hitting just .116/.218/.261 with two homers, seven RBI and a 14/6 K/BB ratio over 78 plate appearances in his last 26 games dating back to July 16.
Aug 19 - 2:12 PM

Joc Pederson doubled in a run Wednesday for his first hit since July 28.

He also walked. Pederson, who has been sitting against lefties, was 0-for-21 in the previous 11 days. He's still been very good since his ice-cold start and early DL stint -- he has a .940 OPS in his last 44 games (33 starts) -- but the fantasy value hasn't really been there because of his limited role, modest average and lack of steals.
Aug 10 - 12:38 AM

Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a win over the Marlins on Saturday.

The game was the third in a row, dating back to before the All-Star break, in which Pederson had multiple hits, and he's got an extra-base hit in each of his past four games. It's odd that the 25-year-old has had little success stealing bases after his proficiency on the basepaths in the minors, but at least his offensive game is coming around. Through Saturday, Pederson is hitting .253/.369/.478 overall.
Jul 15 - 11:31 PM

Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Royals.

Royals starter Ian Kennedy hung a curveball in the second inning, and Pederson deposited it into the right field seats for his ninth homer of the year. Three of those homers have come in his last 10 games. He's on pace for his worst offensive output of his three-year major league career -- partly due to a concussion that cost him nearly three weeks in late May and early June -- with the season's second half still ahead of him.
Jul 9 - 12:43 AM

Joc Pederson is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Pederson hasn't been starting against lefties and the D'Backs have a good one going in Robbie Ray. Trayce Thompson will man center field and bat eighth in the series finale.
Jul 6 - 7:00 PM

Joc Pederson went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Angels.

Pederson remains red-hot at the plate, having crushed four homers in his last eight games. His three-run dinger on Thursday came in the sixth inning off J.C. Ramirez and jumped the Dodgers from a 3-1 lead to a 6-1 advantage. After struggling for most of the season, Pederson's recent sweet bat-work has him the owner of an improving .231/.351/.450 triple-slash with eight homers and 24 RBI in 52 games. Pederson had extremely limited fantasy value early in the season, but he has worked his way back into usability.
Jun 30 - 1:29 AM

Joc Pederson finished 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's win against the Angels.

Pederson has been on fire since returning from the 7-day concussion disabled list on June 13, going 15-for-47 (.319) with five doubles, five homers and 10 RBI across 15 games. He has raised his average from .193 to a respectable .237, re-emerging as a solid fantasy option.
Jun 28 - 1:42 AM

Joc Pederson went 2-for-2 with a go-ahead solo home run in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Pederson entered as part of a double-switch and made immediate impact. And we mean immediate. Pederson jumped on Paul Sewald's first pitch of the frame for a monster solo shot, blasting it an estimated 433 feet to center to snap a 3-3 tie. The homer was Pederson's fifth of the season and boosted his RBI total to 17. While the outfielder is still hitting just .226/.355/.401 overall, he has shown signs of consistency of late, having picked up hits in eight of his last nine games. He has six extra-base hits in that space.
Jun 23 - 1:57 AM

Joc Pederson went 2-for-3 with a homer, a double and a walk versus the Reds on Friday.

That's nice to see. Pederson was struggling before suffering a concussion and landing on the disabled list, and it was hard to tell what to expect from him upon his return this week. So, it's encouraging that he has four hits, three of them for extra bases, is four games.
Jun 17 - 12:19 AM

Dodgers activated OF Joc Pederson from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Pederson's concussion issues are behind him and he hit a couple homers in three rehab games with Triple-A Oklahoma City. With Cody Bellinger moving back in to first base to cover for Adrian Gonzalez (back), Chris Taylor should slide over to left field and allow Pederson to re-take his spot in center.
