JOC PEDERSON RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Los Angeles Dodgers have four prospects in MLB.com’s top 100, as announced Friday on MLB Network.
The usual suspects were featured in the top 15. Joc Pederson was ranked 13th, Julio Urias eighth and Corey Seager seventh. The fourth was 2014 first round draft pick Grant Holmes, who was ranked 95th.
Holmes was born in 1996. I don’t think anything has ever made me feel older...
In the offseason’s most expected move, the Los Angeles Dodgers traded an outfielder to free up room for rookie phenom Joc Pederson. Maybe we didn’t know said outfielder would be Matt Kemp, and maybe we didn’t know it would be to the Padres, but we knew it would be someone — you can only keep a talent like Pederson blocked for so long.

What happened in 2014: Showed off power in spring training. Became the first Pacific Coast League player in 80 years to hit 30 or more home runs and steal 30 or more bases. The last player who did it did so in 186 games. Got a cup of coffee with the Dodgers in September.
Joc Pederson is one of the best prospects in Major League Baseball, but that didn’t stop his teammates from sending him out on a rookie errand during his September call-up. The Los Angeles Dodgers sent the 22-year-old outfielder on a Starbucks run while they were in Chicago for their series against the Cubs, and they made him do it in full uniform. That just goes to show that...
On Saturday, Los Angeles Dodgers top prospect Joc Pederson accomplished something that hadn’t been done in 80 years in the Pacific Coast League.
Pederson stole his 30th base of the season for the Albuquerque Isotopes, making him the first PCL player since 1934 to steal 30 bases and hit 30 home runs.
Most Dodger fans are quite aware of the potential of Pederson. If the Dodgers...
On Friday, August 29th, the Albuquerque Isotopes are giving away star outfielder Joc Pederson’s 1994 Buick Century in a raffle. The car, nicknamed “Little Chucky,” has only 166,000 miles on it and has at least one operable window, which is really all you need. It is perfect for cruising around during the New Mexico summers with its “awesome” stereo system and lack of air...
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, but the money...
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?

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...

Soon, but not quite yet.
Joc Pederson is going to be a good baseball player. There’s no denying that. He has a sweet swing, better-than-advertised power and can play good defense in center field (despite letting that popup drop in on Saturday night).
The question many fans are asking is, “Is he going to break camp with the team?” The answer is simply, no. The 22-year-old is...
