Dodgers' OF negative trade value makes Joc Pederson more valuable

There's a certain cognitive dissonance a lot of baseball fans feel between the value to the team of players' on-field contributions (almost always positive) as compared to the value minus the cost (not necessarily positive).When considering possible trades, you're not trading for just the player -- you're also trading for the contract. In baseball, you can cut a guy...

Dodgers @ Cardinals July 20, 2014: Joc Pederson And The 25 Man Roster

As the Dodgers struggle and as their untenable center field situation marches on, Joc Pederson‘s name gets mentioned a lot, and rightfully so. It’s not a guarantee that he will immediately help the Dodgers, but it’s starting to look like a pretty good bet. But is there actually room for him on the roster? Dodgers Cardinals 5:05 p.m. PT St. Louis,...

2014 Triple-A All-Star game: Joc Pederson and not much else

This is the deadest time of the year in sports. None of the Big 4 sports are playing, as MLB games don’t resume until Friday. But, there is the Triple-A All-Star game I’m sure everyone — or no one — is looking forward to. PCL IL 4:00 pm PT Durham, N.C. CF Orlando CF Carrera RF Pederson 2B Pirela SS Taylor RF Souza...

The Path To Joc Pederson

So here’s what we know, right now: Matt Kemp is not a center fielder, no matter how much he wants to be. Andre Ethier is not a center fielder, though he admirably did his best to make it work. Carl Crawford is not a center fielder, because he hasn’t played there in a decade, has a terrible arm, and actually has less experience there than Ethier does. Yasiel Puig is not a center...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Three prospects that can make an impact this year

Last year, Yasiel Puig had a huge impact on the Dodgers. Last year, Yasiel Puig almost single-handedly turned the season around for the Los Angeles Dodgers. With a 23-32 record, the Dodgers called up the 22-year old outfielder and he made his impact immediately, turning the Dodgers from an expensive disappointment to a legitimate World Series threat. The Dodgers have plenty of highly...

Dodgers' prospect Joc Pederson off to fantastic start in first Double-A stint

Joc Pederson has been one of my favorite prospects ever since the Dodgers were able to snag him in the 11th round of the 2010 draft. He made a brief appearance in the Southern League playoffs last season after playing the entire regular season in the California League. Pederson is in his first full season in Double-A and, at age 21, is playing against competition significantly...

Dodgers' prospect videos: Onelki Garcia, Joc Pederson and Chris Reed

I wish I could take credit for these videos, but I can't. Instead, credit goes to Mike Newman of FanGraphs. He gets to see the Lookouts on a consistent basis, which is something I can't do all the way in California. He posted three videos of Dodger prospects on Christmas Day -- Onelki Garcia, Joc Pederson and Chris Reed. Garcia (YouTube link) - The first half...

Joc Pederson, the Dodgers' best hitting prospect, impressive beyond his stats

When I went to Rancho Cucamonga in April, I was hoping to see Joc Pederson in action. Instead, he was out after straining his groin. But I did get to see him in Stockton a couple weeks ago, and I was impressed. He is easily the Dodgers' best position prospect and will be ranked a little higher in my midseason prospect rankings (out by the end of June). I ranked him No....
