Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Sitting Friday against lefty

Pederson is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins.

Brett Eibner gets the start in center field against lefty Justin Nicolino. Pederson has been in a bad way at the plate since his return from the DL earlier this month, going just 9-for-45 with three extra-base hits (all doubles). His struggles have led to recent demotion to a lower spot in the batting order against right-handed pitching, and considering Pederson is just 4-for-23 against left-handed pitching this season, it wouldn't be surprising to see him platooned more strictly moving forward.
