Joc Pederson placed on seven-day concussion DL

The Dodgers placed Joc Pederson on the seven-day concussion DL on Thursday. Kenta Maeda was activated to take Pederson's place on the roster.

Fantasy Impact

Pederson was involved in a nasty collision with Yasiel Puig on Tuesday night in extra innings and although Dave Roberts said he had no concussion symptoms after the game, they obviously materialized later. Reports are that Pederson has been told to stay away from his phone and bright lights, so he'll try to take it easy. The earliest Pederson can be activated is Wednesday, so owners should prepare for a replacement at least until then,

Joc Pederson exits after collision

Joc Pederson collided with teammate Yasiel Puig in the outfield and was forced to exit the game. He's considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Impact

There's no word on an actual injury, though Pederson was hit in the face with Puig's elbow as both were running full speed. Owners will want to monitor reports in the coming days to see what should be expected. Pederson has disappointed this season, but his playing time in LA appeared safe prior to the injury.

Joc Pederson finally hits second homer

Joc Pederson batted 1-for-4 and blasted just his second home run of the season (in 120 plate appearances) in the Dodgers' 6-3 victory over the Marlins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Pederson is still batting a miserable .206/.317/.324 on the season even after the strong game. It's an extremely disappointing follow-up to last season's .246/.352/.495, not to mention the 51 homers he hit in his first to full seasons. Pederson isn't much of an asset in standard fantasy leagues, but owners holding him in deeper leagues can retain some optimism today's home run is a sign of things to come.

Joc Pederson scores two runs on Thursday

Joc Pederson was 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in a win on Thursday against the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Between his injury early on this season and his .211 BA, Pederson has struggled this season to stay consistent. Based upon the power that he can contribute, Pederson is still worthy of a bench spot, but if his numbers continue to drop, he may be a cut candidate for a hot waiver wire add.

Joc Pederson draws walk and scores from leadoff spot

Joc Pederson batted 0-for-3 but drew a walk and scored in the Dodgers' 9-6 loss against the Rockies on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Pederson has been the Dodgers' leadoff man against right-handed starters since Andrew Toles was lost for the season, which is a mixed bag for his fantasy value if it sticks -- the increase in plate appearances and runs may not be enough to offset the projected dip in RBIs. While Pederson's on-base skills make him a solid fit to bat first, the bigger problem for fantasy owners is his stark drop-off in the power department, batting just .225/.330/.325 with one home run in 94 plate appearances to date.
