An 11th round selection by the Dodgers back in 2010, outfielder Joc Pederson has already far exceeded the expectations of most scouts. A late signee, he didn't really taste pro ball until 2011, when he raked a .353/.429/.568 line at rookie-level Ogden in the Pioneer League, impressing coaches with his work ethic and ability to use his raw tools effectively: the young man stole 24 of 29 bases and played an intelligent, competent outfield while being tested at all three positions.

A patient hitter who isn't afraid to take his walks, Pederson is well on his way to becoming a well-rounded ballplayer who should be above-average in all aspects of the game. There might not be an obvious space for him in L.A. right now, but baseball has a way of making space for those with talent enough to get them to the Show in the first place. If he puts in another year like his last two, he'll be on top of the prospect lists next time around.

News and Notes

5/23/2013 by KDaddy



KFFL Los Angeles is reporting that the Dodgers may call up Yasiel Puig and/or Joc Pederson shortly, in an attempt to get the team fired up and back into contention. Pederson is having the slightly better minor league season so far, with a .327/.400/.554 slash-line and 13 steals. It's premature, but some in Dodgertown believe these are desperate times.
