  • Giants' Joc Pederson: Not part of Monday's lineup

    Pederson is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres, according to Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

    Pederson rarely faces left-handers, so it should come as no surprise that he is being held out with southpaw Blake Snell on the bump for the opponent. Luis Gonzalez will start in left field in Pederson's place.

  • Giants' Joc Pederson: Smacks homer off southpaw

    Pederson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 9-2 win over the Reds.

    Pederson doesn't play a ton against southpaws, but he made the most of his opportunity against Reds lefty Mike Minor. The outfielder went deep in the fifth inning for the Giants' sixth run. With four homers and two multi-hit efforts in his last 11 games, a span in which he's gone 10-for-34 (.294), Pederson is in a groove at the plate. He's up to a .270/.344/.573 slash line, 17 homers, 39 RBI, 32 runs scored, two stolen bases and five doubles across 209 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Joc Pederson: Homers in loss Thursday

    Pederson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 7-6 loss to Atlanta.

    Pederson's ninth-inning blast got the Giants within a run, but they weren't able to tie the game. The outfielder has homered three times in his last seven games, giving him 16 on the year. He hadn't posted a multi-hit effort since June 10, and he now has a .271/.348/.571 slash line with 38 RBI, 31 runs scored and two stolen bases across 200 plate appearances. He rarely plays against southpaws, but the Giants' outfield is not at full health with LaMonte Wade (knee) on a rehab assignment and Luis Gonzalez (back) landing on the injured list Thursday, so Pederson could see a small uptick in playing time in the short term.

  • Giants' Joc Pederson: Hits 15th home run

    Pederson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in a 12-10 win over the Braves on Tuesday.

    Pederson homered off reliever Collin McHugh to lead off the seventh inning and extend his team's lead. It marks the 15th long ball for Pederson on the season, which puts him on pace for his best power output since 2019. His power resurgence is all the more impressive given that home runs are down considerably in 2022 compared to 2019, partially due to the physical properties of the baseball. Pederson is now slugging .565 with a .912 OPS in 2022.
