Joc Pederson unable to produce in win

Joc Pederson batted 0-for-3 with two strikeouts before being pinch-hit for against a left-handed reliever against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Pederson has been hot over the past month or so and is batting .246/.360/.465 on the year despite a very slow start. He has power upside, but unfortunately for fantasy owners, the Dodgers' outfield depth makes him more valuable in real life than in the fake game.

Joc Pederson sits against another lefty

Joc Pederson got the night off on Tuesday with the Dodgers facing left-handed starter Patrick Corbin and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

By luck of the draw, three of the last four Dodger games have been against southpaws, and Pederson has begun each of them on the bench. Pederson has actually been red-hot since being activated from the disabled list on June 13, batting .305/.446/.695 with six home runs in 74 plate appearances and nearly as many walks (12) as strikeouts (14). It hasn't helped him earn a true every-day role, however, as the Dodgers' enviable depth gives them the luxury of stacking quality right-handed bats against lefties, with Pederson usually giving way to Enrique Hernandez, Chris Taylor, or Trayce Thompson. Still, Pederson has a lot of pop in his bat and remains a solid power option for fantasy owners, particularly those with the depth to cover for his days off.

Joc Pederson blasts third homer in six games

Joc Pederson sealed the Dodgers' 4-0 victory over the Angels on Tuesday with a three-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning. The homer was Pederson's third in his last six games and fifth since being activated from the disabled list on June 13.

Fantasy Impact

Pederson has turned a disappointing season into an adequate one rather quickly, as his batting line is now up to .237/.361/.447 on the year with seven home runs in 183 plate appearances. Still, with his lack of speed, poor batting average, and below-average counting stats, Pederson is an unappealing one-category fantasy option in standard formats.

Joc Pederson smashes pinch-hit game-winning solo home run

Joc Pederson finished 2-for-2 with a solo home run in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Pederson came into the game to lead off the seventh inning and took the first pitch he saw 433 feet the other direction for a no-doubt tie-breaking moon shot that would be the last time the Dodgers needed to score. It was Pederson's fifth homer of the year and now gives him 17 RBIs. His slash line of .226/.355/.401 is still pretty meager but he has been heating up as of late.

Joc Pederson homers in second straight game at Cincinnati

Joc Pederson batted 1-for-4 with a solo home run and also drew a walk in the Dodgers' 10-2 win over the Reds on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Pederson is still batting just .211/.324/.374 on the season, but he has looked solid since returning from a multi-week absence on the concussion disabled list. Pederson is a fringe option in standard fantasy leagues, but it appears he may reward patient owners who stuck with him this long for his power potential.
