Pederson is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies. Despite going 3-for-4 with a pair of homers in Monday's series-opening win, Pederson will hit the bench with a left-hander in Kyle Freeland starting for the Rockies. Chris Taylor will cover left field and bat leadoff Tuesday.
Pederson went 3-for-4 with a double, two home runs, three RBI and three runs scored in Monday's 8-2 win over the Rockies. Pederson's first homer came off right-handed starter Jon Gray, but his second was a rare long ball off a southpaw, his first of that variety this season. The 26-year-old is unlikely to all of a sudden begin starting against lefties, but fantasy owners can live with a .251/.324/.519 slash line and 23 homers in a favorable platoon situation.
Pederson went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo homer and an additional run scored in Wednesday's win over the Reds. Pederson tied the game up at 1-1 with his solo shot to lead off the fourth inning. The outfielder has now homered in back-to-back multi-hit games, raising his September slash to .261/.346/.565 through 10 games.
Pederson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Reds. Pederson returned to his usual spot atop the Dodgers' lineup after being held out of the lineup against three consecutive left-handed starters. The 26-year-old has cooled off in September (.200/.304/.350), but he should continue to get opportunities to provide power and run production against right-handed starters.
Pederson sits for the third straight game Monday against yet another lefty in Cody Reed and the Reds. Pederson has largely been protected against lefties all season, and that trend continues Monday with Chris Taylor starting in left field. The Dodgers currently line up to face seven straight righties starting Tuesday, so expect to see Pederson in the lineup often over the next week.
