Joc Pederson began the year as one of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ top minor league prospects. He validated that belief with an impressive season that led to him being named the Pacific Coast League’s Most Valuable Player. His success continued as he was also one of the Dodgers’ September callups.

Pederson’s play led to his name being involved in trade talks as other teams attempted to pry the outfielder from the Dodgers’ hands while the organization remained steadfast in their refusal to trade him away. In his first stint at the Major League level, Pederson has a locker next to the team’s veterans and he said Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier have provided plenty of advice.

The rookie is 2-for-12 with six strikeouts in his time the Dodgers thus far. It will be interesting to see where Pederson fits into the plethora of outfielders the Dodgers will have under contract whenthe 2015 season begins.

This season, Pederson batted .303 with 33 home runs and 78 RBIs for Triple-A Albuquerque.
