Joc Pederson (shoulder) went 2-for-4 in his third rehab game Sunday with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Pederson now stands 5-for-8 with four walks through three games at the Triple-A level. He should be activated from the disabled list Tuesday as scheduled, finally returning some semblance of normality to the center field position in Los Angeles. Scott Van Slyke started in center field for the Dodgers on Friday, Andrew Toles got the nod there Saturday, and then Yasiel Puig was the choice Sunday. Pederson has been out since suffering a bruised AC joint when he crashed into a wall on June 28.

Joc Pederson (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.

The Dodgers are planning to activate him for Tuesday's series opener against Washington. Pederson has spent the last few weeks nursing a bruised AC joint in his right shoulder. Before the injury, he was hitting .236 with 13 home runs and 33 RBI.
Jul 14 - 9:15 PM

Dodgers placed OF Joc Pederson on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised AC joint in his right shoulder.

Pederson sustained the injury when he crashed into the outfield wall after making a ridiculous catch to take away extra bases from Chris Carter on Tuesday. Will Venable has been recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the Dodgers roster.

Joc Pederson (shoulder) is not available to play Thursday.

Pederson is missing a second straight start with a bruised AC joint in his right shoulder, and he's not available off the bench, either. The hope is that he'll be ready to go sometime over the weekend. Trayce Thompson is again filling in in center field.

Joc Pederson (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Pederson was diagnosed with a bruised AC joint in the right shoulder after he ran into the wall while tracking down -- and catching -- a long Chris Carter fly on Tuesday. He did not sustain any broken bones in the collision, but nobody can blame manager Dave Roberts for giving him a day off or two. Trayce Thompson will man center and bat sixth in Wednesday's game.

Joc Pederson is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with a bruised AC joint in his right shoulder.

Pederson crashed into the outfield wall at full speed to make a tremendous catch on Chris Carter. Luckily, he was able to avoid any fractures and should return to the lineup in a day or two.

Joc Pederson was removed from Tuesday's game against the Brewers with a right shoulder injury.

Pederson slammed into the outfield wall after making a ridiculous catch to rob Chris Carter of extra bases. The Dodgers should provide an update on his status after he's examined.

Joc Pederson is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Monday against the Pirates.

It's no coincidence that the left-handed-hitting Pederson is getting the afternoon off with Francisco Liriano on the mound for Pittsburgh. Pederson also sat Saturday against left-hander Jeff Locke. Trayce Thompson will bat third and play center field. Pederson is still having contact issues (.236 AVG, 66 strikeouts) but his power numbers have been impressive (13 HR, .480 slugging percentage).

Joc Pederson is not in Saturday's lineup against the Pirates.

He'll take a seat against left-hander Jeff Locke. Trayce Thompson will start in center field while Scott Van Slyke will play left.

Joc Pederson led off for the first time this season and got three hits, including his 12th home run as the Dodgers beat the Brewers 10-6 on Saturday.

Pederson finished 3-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored and one stolen base. The good game boosted his batting average up to a still-subpar .238 on the season. Pederson strikes out a lot and hits the ball in the air frequently, so his owners should not expect a good batting average from him any time soon. He is an odd fit as a leadoff hitter due to his .316 OBP and prodigious power. Right now Pederson is a second-division fantasy outfielder, but he has the potential to be a star if he can hone his natural talent into sharpened skills.

Joc Pederson is batting leadoff for the Dodgers on Saturday night against the Brewers.

This will be Pederson's first start at leadoff in 2016. He hit leadoff 69 times last season.
Jun 18 - 6:05 PM

Joc Pederson crushed two solo home runs in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

Pederson clocked solo homers off of Diamondbacks starter Archie Bradley in the fifth and sixth innings. Those would be his only hits on the evening. For the season, the young slugger is slashing .234/.324/.484 with 11 homers and 29 RBI over 192 at-bats. He has picked up hits in each of his last five games, with homers in two of his last three.

Joc Pederson belted a monstrous home run into McCovey Cove on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Dodgers to victory over the Giants.

His seventh-inning shot off Hunter Strickland pulled the Dodgers to within a run at 2-1, but that would be as close as they would come. Pederson also singled, finishing the night 2-for-3 to raise his season slash to .228/.319/.451 to go along with his nine homers and 27 RBI.
Jun 12 - 11:42 PM

Joc Pederson is not in Monday's lineup against the Rockies.

Pederson is on the bench despite a right-hander, Tyler Chatwood, on the hill for Colorado. Trayce Thompson will start in center field and bat third while Justin Turner will bat leadoff. Meanwhile, Scott Van Slyke will play right field and Enrique Hernandez will start in left.
