Dodgers | Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson getting consideration

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson have been discussed as possible call-ups, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Puig, 22, had an incredible spring but wasn't realistically an option prior to the season because of his lack of experience about advanced Class A ball. Pederson, 21, didn't have much of a chance to showcase his abilities in ST for the same reason. Puig (.314/.385/.579, 10 stolen bases) and Pederson (.327/.400/.554, 13 stolen bases) have dominated in the Double-A Southern League in the early going. This is indicative of how desperate the Dodgers may be, but the promotion of either might be rash and thus seems unlikely. Still, both players are clearly on a fast track and would deserve immediate fantasy consideration because of their upside.
