President of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Pederson (hip) is essentially recovered from his hip and side injuries, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Hip and side soreness kept Pederson sidelined for all of Cactus League action, though he had reportedly resumed playing in minor-league games before spring training was suspended. As such, the outfielder isn't expected to be limited whenever play resumes.
Pederson (hip/side) has not resumed throwing to bases from the field, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
While Pederson has logged at-bats in a minor-league game, his inability to make throws from the outfield has prevented the slugger from making a full return. According to manager Dave Roberts, the defensive limitation "has been more of a hurdle than the swing" in Pederson's recovery from the hip/side soreness that has hampered him since the start of the spring training. Nonetheless, the Dodgers are optimistic that Pederson will be ready for the now-delayed start of the regular season.
Manager Dave Roberts said Pederson (hip/side) could return to Cactus League games next week, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Pederson has been held out of Cactus League games to this point by hip and side injuries, but he's progressed to appearing in minor-league games this week. Roberts continues to believe the 27-year-old will be ready in time for Opening Day, and a return to spring games next week would keep him on that track.
Pederson (side/hip) recorded five at-bats during a minor-league game Sunday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that Pederson will likely play in another minor-league game before appearing in the Cactus League, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports. The 27-year-old has yet to make his spring debut due to soreness in his right side and hip that arose at the beginning of camp. Given the Dodgers' depth in the outfield, the team will continue to take a conservative approach to bringing Pederson back, but it looks as though he'll be able to avoid a trip to the injured list. The left-handed power hitter slugged a career-high 36 home runs during 2019 and registered an impressive .920 against right-handed pitching.
Pederson (side/hip) will play five innings in a minor-league game Sunday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Pederson has been slowed by soreness in his side and hip since early in camp. He's cutting things somewhat close to be ready by the start of the regular season. The Dodgers are deep enough that they can afford to treat him carefully and send him on a brief trip to the injured list if necessary, though they haven't officially indicated that they plan on doing so.
Pederson (side/hip) has been cleared for a full workout Friday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Pederson has dealt with a strained side and sore hip since early in camp and has yet to get into a Cactus League game. He's expected to get some at-bats in minor-league camp soon, with his availability for Opening Day still up in the air.
Pederson (side/hip) could appear in minor-league games soon, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Pederson has yet to make his spring debut due to a sore right side/hip, though it sounds like he's nearing a return to game action. The outfielder is expected to start out playing in minor-league camp before ultimately making his Cactus League debut. While Pederson is trending in the right direction, his status for the start of the season remains in doubt.
Pederson (side/hip) is able to take batting practice but expects his first game appearance to be in minor-league camp, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Though Pederson has been ramping up his intensity in the batting cage, his comments Monday suggest that he isn't close to taking the field. Manager Dave Roberts has likewise indicated that the team's focus is on getting Pederson healthy rather than rushing him toward readiness for Opening Day, casting significant doubt on the outfielder's status for the March 26 opener.
Pederson (side/hip) raised his intensity to 80 percent Sunday, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.
The outfielder has been swinging a bat as he recovers from a sore right side/hip, with Sunday's increase in intensity indicating notable progress. Still, manager Dave Roberts indicated that Pederson is still a couple weeks away from getting into a game, casting doubt on his status for Opening Day.
Pederson (side/hip) swung in a batting cage Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Pederson has been out with a strained side and a sore hip for over a week, but he both played catch and took some swings Friday, so he's seemingly on the mend. Assuming he gets back into game action soon and doesn't suffer any setbacks, he should have enough time to be ready for Opening Day.
Pederson (side/hip) played catch Friday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Pederson was sidelined by the issue for a week, but the fact that he's resuming baseball activities nearly a month before Opening Day bodes well for his chances of avoiding a trip to the injured list. It remains to be seen when he'll get back into game action.
Pederson's strained side has lingered longer than the Dodgers originally expected, and he's still yet to resume hitting, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Pederson has been dealing with the issue, which has also been referred to as a sore hip, since early in camp. He still seems to have plenty of time to get up to speed by Opening Day, but it's possible that the injury's persistence means it's something worse than the team originally feared.
Pederson (hip) has yet to be cleared for baseball activities, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
It was reported Saturday that Pederson might be able to resume hitting Sunday or Monday after entering spring training with the sore right hip, but it appears that he will have to wait at least a few more days. The 27-year-old received treatment Friday, but there's no real reason to rush him back this early in camp if he's still feeling any residual soreness.
Pederson (hip) could resume hitting Sunday or Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Pederson received treatment for a sore right hip Friday, but the issue is reportedly minor. He's reportedly still sore, but he could resume hitting soon. The 27-year-old will likely serve in a platoon role in the Dodgers' outfield this season.
Pederson received treatment for a sore right hip Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Although the hip soreness resulted in a "light day" in camp Friday, Pederson indicated that the issue is minor. The 27-year-old is expected to fill a platoon role -- playing primarily against right-handers -- in the Dodgers' outfield this season.
Manager Dave Roberts said Pederson will likely occupy the large side of a platoon in left field, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Assuming Pederson -- who was reportedly traded to the Angels earlier in the offseason before the deal fell through -- is on the Dodgers' Opening Day roster, he's expected to share playing time in left field with A.J. Pollock. Pederson occupied a similar role in 2019, starting 104 games against righties but just six against southpaws.
Pederson's reported trade from the Dodgers to the Angels fell through Sunday night and will not happen, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Pederson's deal was dependent on the original attempted Mookie Betts trade between the Dodgers and Red Sox. According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Angels owner Arte Moreno expressed his frustration regarding the delay leading up to the trade being rescinded. The 27-year-old Pederson returns to a loaded Dodgers outfield for the time being, but he remains one of the club's top trade assets as Los Angeles aims to fall below the luxury tax heading into the 2020 season.
Pederson lost his arbitration case Friday and will make $7.75 million this season, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Pederson had filed for $9.5 million after a season in which he hit .249/.339/.538 with 36 homers. With his trade from the Dodgers to the Angels not yet being formally completed pending the finalization of the Mookie Betts deal, Pederson's arbitration case was handled by his soon-to-be-former team, which should avoid any potential ill will between him and the Angels.
Pederson was traded from the Dodgers to the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for infielder Luis Rengifo, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Prospect Andy Pages was also sent to the Angels in the deal.
Pederson has been a major part of the Dodgers' outfield over the last five years, but he became expendable with the team acquiring Mookie Betts from the Red Sox earlier in the evening. Pederson had 61 home runs and an .861 OPS over the last two seasons, but he saw only 107 plate appearances versus left-handed pitching as he was utilized in a platoon role. Barring a significant improvement against lefties, the 27-year-old is likely to be used similarly alongside Justin Upton and Mike Trout in the Angels' outfield.
Pederson is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the Nationals on Thursday.
Pederson has hit four home runs with six runs over the past six games but will retreat to the bench against southpaw Patrick Corbin. Chris Taylor will start in right field, batting fifth.
