Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Shows hitting, whiffing ability in opener
Pederson smacked a pair of doubles with an RBI an a run, but also struck out twice among his five at-bats in Monday's season-opening blowout of the Padres.
Pederson's whiffing problems were well documented last year, but doubles were not a big part of his repertoire -- he had seven more homers (26) than two-baggers (19). His combination of power, walks and strikeouts plays in formats that don't dock you for the strikeouts, especially because the nearly 24-year-old Pederson certainly has the legs to do a better job stealing bases than he did last year.
