Joc Pederson will not play often when he's called up, according to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.
"I'm not going to just throw him out there," said Mattingly on Saturday. Pederson will make his major league debut after rosters expand in September but he is probably not worth picking up in a redraft league unless there's an injury to a current starting outfielder. Aug 23 - 6:53 PM

Dodgers outfield prospect Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 with a home run and two walks for Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.

Pederson leads the Triple-A Pacific Coast League with 32 home runs, is fourth with 29 stolen bases, first with 93 walks (second place has 60), and first with 139 strikeouts. The 22-year old Pederson is hitting a robust .301/.432/.586, and would likely have made his major league debut in May or June if the Dodgers did not have such an overloaded outfield. His future role will be determined by moves made by the Dodgers in the off-season. Pederson will be called up on September 1, though playing time may be hard to find.

Dodgers outfield prospect Joc Pederson went 1-for-3 with a home run and two walks on Monday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Pederson would be a starter for pretty much every other team in baseball, but the Dodgers outfield is overloaded with players under long-term, expensive contracts. He is hitting .301/.425/.578 with 14 doubles, four triples, 30 home runs, and 28 stolen bases for the season.

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said in an interview on SiriusXM Sunday that the club will call up Joc Pederson and Alex Guerrero on September 1.

Neither impending promotion is a surprise. Pederson sports a fantastic .301/.423/.574 batting line with 29 homers and 28 steals for Triple-A Albuquerque this season. While he sports enormous fantasy upside over the long haul, he probably won't see enough at-bats to be a difference-maker down the stretch. Guerrero has been highly impressive, as well, batting .314/.356/.557 with 11 homers over 53 games for Albuquerque.

Dodgers prospect OF Joc Pederson went 2-for-3 with a home run on Tuesday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Pederson has enjoyed a power surge this month, as Tuesday’s home run was his fourth in his last nine games and 27th of the season. The 22-year-old is having another impressive season, with a .302/.425/.568 batting line, 85 runs, 45 extra-base hits and 26 stolen bases through 105 games. Pederson’s high strikeout rate (27.4%) remains an issue, but he’s helped mitigate the concern by posting the best walk rate (17.1%) and on-base percentage (.425) of his full-season career.

Dodgers prospect outfielder Joc Pederson went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, and a stolen base on Friday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Pederson is hitting .305/.431/.566 with 25 home runs for the season, but he has been cold in August, hitting just .179/.258/.393 with two home runs over seven games. Pederson has hit much better at home, putting up a .343/.486/.651 line in Albuquerque and .272/.381/.495 line on the road. Additionally, his 27.4 percent strikeout rate is troubling, but he still projects as a solid outfield option for the Dodgers if they can trade some of their outfielders to give Pederson a chance.
Aug 9 - 10:51 AM

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times is hearing the Dodgers haven't outright refused to talk about top prospects Joc Pederson, Corey Seager or Julio Urias in a trade.

There have been reports that the Dodgers are hesitant to move the trio of top prospects, but Shaikin said the only players they won't be dealt for are two-month rentals. Pederson is arguably the best of the three, batting .319/.448/.587 with 23 homers and 25 steals for Triple-A Albuquerque this season. If the Dodgers do move one or multiple prospects, the return will likely be a top-flight starting pitcher.
Jul 30 - 8:35 PM

Dodgers prospect OF Joc Pederson went 2-for-5 with a solo home run on Tuesday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 22-year-old has been on fire this month since coming off the disabled list for a separated shoulder, posting a .323/.500/.694 batting line with six home runs, 14 RBI and more walks (20) than strikeouts (17) in 18 games. All six of his home runs have come in the last 12 games. Pederson has a bright future in the Dodgers outfield, but he's unlikely to see time in the major leagues this season unless there's a trade or injury.
Jul 30 - 12:23 PM

Dodgers outfield prospect Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 with a double for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Pederson has hit well since returning from a separated shoulder, going 7-for-17 with two doubles, a triple, and six walks in five games. The Dodgers still have an overly crowded outfield, and Pederson is unlikely to see a promotion until September or in the event of an injury, even if he keeps up his superb .324/.445/.572 season line.
Jul 13 - 11:08 AM

Joc Pederson (shoulder) has returned to the Dodgers' Triple-A Albuquerque team.

Pederson missed two weeks with a separated right shoulder, but it's good to see he enjoyed a speedy recovery. Pederson returns batting .320/.348/.570 with the Triple-A club, and a second-half promotion could be in the cards.
Jul 9 - 6:42 PM

Dodgers prospect Joc Pederson has a separated right shoulder.

The good news is that he could return in as few as 10 days. The bad news is that the Dodgers won't be able to promote him in that span, something that prospect watchers were hoping would happen any day now. The young outfielder is batting .320/.348/.570 in 73 games in the minor leagues this season.
Jun 25 - 7:43 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that the right shoulder injury outfield prospect Joc Pederson suffered is not believed to be serious.

Pederson suffered the injury while diving for a ball on Tuesday. The top prospect will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, but it sounds like he'll be OK. Pederson entered Tuesday's action with a .320/.348/.570 batting line to go along with 17 home runs and 20 stolen bases over 73 games this season.
Jun 24 - 6:42 PM

Dodgers prospect Joc Pederson left Tuesday's game with Triple-A Albuquerque due to a shoulder injury.

Pederson suffered the injury while diving for a ball. No other details are known at this time. The 22-year-old entered Tuesday's action with an impressive .320/.348/.570 batting line to go along with 17 home runs and 20 stolen bases over 73 games.
Jun 24 - 2:21 PM

Dodgers prospect outfielder Joc Pederson left Tuesday's game with Triple-A Albuquerque with an apparent injury.

The exact nature of the injury and the severity isn't yet known. Pederson has had a big first half in Triple-A, leading to some speculation that he could be an answer for center field at the major league level. This injury could obviously change that.
Jun 24 - 2:06 PM

Dodgers outfield prospect Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 with a home run and two strikeouts on Saturday, raising his season line to .324/.437/.602

Pederson is still blocked in LA's outfield and striking out too much (87 in 293 plate appearances), but he has nothing left to prove in Triple-A. He has hit better at home and against right-handed pitching, so it will be interesting to see the impact when he plays in a more neutral offensive environment (such as Dodger Stadium) and faces some of the tougher left-handed pitchers in the major leagues.
