Joc Pederson Scouting Report - Dodgers CF- Strong Buy

From 1992 to 1996, the Dodgers won five Rookie of the Year honors in a row: Eric Karros, Mike Piazza, Raul Mondesi, Hideo Nomo and Todd Hollandsworth.  I suspect that they have another one in 2015 with center fielder Joc Pederson.

Joc is tearing it up this Spring, with a slash line of: .472/.513/.833 with 3 HR, 8 RBI, 8 strikeouts and 3 walks through 15 games and 39 plate appearances.  This is coming off an absolute monster campaign in AAA last year when the 21 year old hit .303 with 33 HR and 30 SB.  Over the past 3 years, check out these improvements:

2012: 10.2% BB Rate, .203 ISO, .400 wOBA, 137 RC+, 18 HR
2013: 13.5% BB Rate, .219 ISO, .398 wOBA, 155 RC+, 22 HR
2014: 18.1% BB Rate, .279 ISO, .439 wOBA, 164 RC+, 33 HR

Basically, the kid keeps getting better and has solidified himself as the Dodgers center fielder come Opening Day.  He is a beast, and his Bowman Chrome autos speak for themselves.  STRONG BUY!


  1. You like Joc more than Corey Seager? I feel Seager will be a monster.

    1. Nah, never said I like him better than Seager, but Joc is still a beast
