Pederson was traded to Atlanta from the Cubs on Thursday in exchange for Bryce Ball.

Pederson may be the first domino to fall in what is expected to be a busy trade deadline for the Cubs. He provides Atlanta with a starting outfielder, a position of need as the team is currently without Ronald Acuna (knee) and Marcell Ozuna (finger). Pederson hit .230/.300/.418 across 287 plate appearances with the Cubs on the campaign.
