Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Homers twice against San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pederson went 2-for-3 with two home runs, five RBI, three runs scored and a walk in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Pederson delivered a complete performance Wednesday, launching a two-run shot in the second and later adding a three-run shot in the sixth -- he also chipped in another run scored in the fifth following an RBI single from Will Smith. Pederson has hit safely in four of his last five appearances and accounts for three homers in his last three games.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Could slide into leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers are considering having Pederson bat leadoff against right-handed starters, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Los Angeles has been employing a matchup-based lineup strategy throughout the season, with Max Muncy batting first against right-handed starters and Mookie Betts leading off against southpaws. However, Muncy has been struggling of late, going 2-for-16 over his last four games. Pederson took over the leadoff spot against right-hander Chris Paddack on Monday and promptly went deep on the first pitch of the contest for his first home run of the season. Pederson has had plenty of success as a leadoff hitter in the past -- he hit 17 leadoff homers between 2018 and 2019, including a franchise-record nine last season.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: On bench against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pederson isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against Arizona.

Pederson will once again take a seat Thursday with left-hander Robbie Ray on the mound for the Diamondbacks. A.J. Pollock is starting in left field, batting fifth.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Out of lineup again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pederson isn't in the lineup Tuesday against the Astros, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

Pederson will be out of the starting nine for the second consecutive game with left-hander Framber Valdez on the mound for the Astros. A.J. Pollock will shift to left field and bat seventh.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Sitting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pederson isn't in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Pederson started in Friday's contest against a southpaw starting pitcher, but he'll sit Sunday against left-hander Drew Smyly. Chris Taylor will start in left field and bat fifth.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Scores twice, swipes bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pederson went 1-for-3 with two runs, a walk and a stolen base in Friday's win over San Francisco.

Pederson worked on his flexibility during parts of spring and summer and demonstrated the results with a pair of stolen bases in intrasquad action, so Friday's theft may be indicative of a commitment to running more often this season. The slugger stole just one base both of the past two seasons, but he swiped between 26 and 31 bags in the minors for four straight campaigns between 2011 and 2014. It is also important to note that Pederson was in the lineup despite facing a southpaw starter, a rare occurrence in 2019. The 28-year-old's power is a given, but if he is able to play more consistently and add an occasional stolen base to his repertoire this season, his fantasy value could grow significantly.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Aims to improve flexibility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pederson worked with a movement coach during the MLB shutdown in an effort to improve flexibility and prevent injury, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Pederson was referred to the trainer by teammate Austin Barnes, who had previously taken a similar approach to combat back issues. Pederson missed most of spring training with injuries to his hip and side, but he reportedly feels lighter on his feet during summer camp and has already stolen two bases in intrasquad action. That matches the number of stolen bases he accumulated in regular-season action over the last two campaigns combined.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Recovery going well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Not yet throwing to bases
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Could return to games next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Nearing spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Getting game action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Cleared for full workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 5, 2020 03:28 PM
Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Nearing minor-league action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Expects to begin rehab in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Ups intensity Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

February 28, 2020 02:24 PM
Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Able to swing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

February 28, 2020 12:40 PM
Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

February 26, 2020 09:32 PM
Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Side issue remains
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

February 23, 2020 05:40 PM
Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Still no baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
