Reds | Todd Frazier wins HR Derby

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 20:18:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier won the 2015 Home Run derby Monday, July 13, edging out Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson. He became the second hometown player to win the event.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier rolled into the All-Star break with 25 homers, but oddly enough he had zero with just three RBIs in 39 at-bats in the month of July.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson struggling entering break

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 12:24:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson has a .196 batting average with just 10 runs, three home runs, seven RBI and no stolen bases over his past 29 games and 116 plate appearances. He is also sporting a 28.4% strikeout rate during the span.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) hasn't been living up to his hefty FantasyScore cap hit, as he is reeling at the dish entering the All-Star break. In yearly leagues, it isn't out of the question to sell high on Pederson. His struggles could easily continue into the second half because of his propensity for striking out.

Brewers | Ryan Braun added to All-Star team

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 13:36:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun has been named to the National League All-Star team as an injury replacement for St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps). Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson will replace Holliday in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Braun ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) was batting .272 with 15 homers and 55 RBIs entering play Sunday, July 12, and is making his first All-Star appearance since being suspended for using steroids during the 2013 season. Pederson ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) entered play Sunday hitting .230 with 20 home runs and 40 RBIs.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson an Adam Dunn clone?

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 11:35:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson, who is currently in a slump, could become the only player his age (23) or younger with 450-plus plate appearances who has walked in more than 16% of his plate appearances, struck out in more than 28% of them and homered in more than 5% of them. His slash line of .231/.367/.493 looks very similar to former DH Adam Dunn's career line of .237/.364/.490. Pederson has more speed than Dunn did, though, although he's just 2-for-7 in stolen base attempts after stealing 30 bags in the minors last year. Pederson is pulling 44.9% of his pitches this year, and Dunn had a mark of 47.6% in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been one of the most impressive rookies in 2015, with 20 home runs and 49 RBI before the halfway point. His fantasy owners love the long balls and runs driven in, but his .231 average is a sore spot, and with a league-leading 101 strikeouts, that doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon. Pederson's all-or-nothing swing style could cause prolonged slumps and headaches for his owners.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson flopped

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 16:27:57 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson flopped lineups spots against Philadelphia Phillies left-handed SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, July 8. Puig is now leading off and Pederson is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) hasn't done much at the plate recently, but a move to leadoff could spark him, especially since he's hit .333 (9-for-27) with a home run against lefties. Pederson ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) loses some daily luster being dropped in the order, and he's hit just .228 (13-for-57) with three of his 20 home runs against left-handers this year. It's a night to consider avoiding Pederson and running with Puig.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson will participate in derby

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 16:14:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson will take part in the Home Run Derby as part of the All-Star festivities next week.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been one of the most impressive rookies in 2015, hitting 20 home runs and driving in 39 for a .230 average (65-for-282). One has to wonder how participating in this event at such a young age might affect his swing in the second half of the season, though. He does have 100 strikeouts on the season and has seen his average drop off in recent weeks.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson out vs. lefty

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:19:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Wednesday, July 1. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting in center field and hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can maximize his at-bats for daily gamers in the leadoff spot, but there is little offensive upside to his bat. He does have three home runs in 88 at-bats for the Dodgers this year, but Ray has been pretty exceptional for Arizona since being called up. Hernandez is a deep sleeper and a nice source of salary cap relief.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson gets rest day

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:57:41 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, against left-handed Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester. OF Enrique Hernandez takes the start at leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .333 in 30 at-bats against lefties this season. If you're looking for a player at the minimum, he might be one to target on FantasyScore today.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson in two-hole

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 14:42:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is hitting second Saturday, June 20, against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) switched with Yasiel Puig yesterday and went 1-for-4 in the second spot. He has a .226-4-9 line in June, but Hudson presents a good matchup on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson back in lineup

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 16:00:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is back in the starting lineup Thursday, June 18, against the Texas Rangers and RHP Anthony Ranaudo. Pederson will start in center field and hit out of the leadoff position.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has gone without a home run in 12 consecutive games, after he had dingers in five straight contests. Pederson still carries a high potential, but the risk is also in play. Pederson's reverse splits have brought more success against lefties this season, but he'll make for a good GPP choice against the rookie Ranaudo.
