Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman says Joc Pederson (hip) won't be limited when camp resumes.
Pederson was dealing with a hip issue before spring training came to a halt. However, the slugging lefty had already returned to minor league action before the stoppage. Pederson, who hit 36 homers last year, is set to turn 28 in April.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says Joc Pederson (oblique, hip) could return to Cactus League action next week.
Roberts added that Pederson is still expected to be ready for Opening Day. The 27-year-old will once again be a platoon player for the Dodgers this season. He hit 36 homers in 2019.
Joc Pederson (side/hip) could appear in minor-league game action soon.
Pederson has not yet appeared in a spring game due to a sore hip/side, but it appears he could be making his way back soon. He's expected to debut in minor-league camp before being elevated to Cactus League play. His status for the start of the season is unclear at this point.
Joc Pederson (side/hip) swung in a batting cage and played catch Friday.
Pederson has been on the shelf for over a week, so the fact that he's playing catch and swinging is encouraging. If he returns to game action in the near future, he'll likely be ready for Opening Day.
Joc Pederson has yet to resume hitting as a result of a side issue that has persisted since the beginning of camp.
Pederson has been hobbled by this issue since the beginning of spring training. He has plenty of time to heal up for Opening Day, but it's a bit concerning that this issue has lingered for longer than expected.
