Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Dealing with neck injury

Pederson (concussion) is set to compete in rehab games every other day during his recovery, while also battling a neck issue, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Manager Dave Roberts said that Pederson still does not have full range of motion turning his neck to the right, but will monitor the outfielder as he rehabs from the injury. Pederson was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list on May 25 and has dealt with some lingering issues that caused him to miss more time. He is set to play in a rehab game Friday, which will provide a better understanding for when the 25-year-old will return. Thus far, Pederson is batting .200/.309/.314 this season with two home runs and 11 RBI in 123 plate appearances.
