    Pederson went 2-for-5 with a walk, a home run, five RBI and an additional run scored in Thursday's 11-1 over the Angels.

    Pederson was responsible for Arizona's final five runs, belting a grand slam in the seventh inning then singling in the final run an inning later. The homer was the first in 10 games for Pederson, who entered on a 4-for-27 (.148) run over the previous nine contests.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Swipes bag in loss

    Pederson went 2-for-3 with a double and a stolen base in Friday's 10-3 loss to the Padres.

    Pederson went 0-for-12 with two walks and six strikeouts over his first four games in June, though a run of opposing left-handed starters has limited his playing time this month. He was able to find some success against San Diego right-hander Michael King in Friday's contest, which also saw Pederson earn his third steal of the season and second in his last six games. The designated hitter is at a .290/.390/.510 slash line with seven home runs, 21 RBI, 19 runs scored and 10 doubles over 53 contests in his usual strong-side platoon role.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Goes yard in win

    Pederson went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-5 win over the Reds.

    Pederson has gone 11-for-35 (.314) with three homers and a 2:14 BB:K over 11 games in May.

The 32-year-old has started the year well, but his strict platoon role likely means his 30-homer campaigns of yesteryear are unlikely to return.
