Dodgers | Joc Pederson back in leadoff spot

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 16:00:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is hitting leadoff against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Thursday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) hasn't been playable on FantasyScore for much of the second half of the season, but a move back to leadoff tonight should at least peak your interest. Basically, you'll be crossing your fingers that he takes one deep at an extreme pitcher's park.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson starting vs. Giants

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:36:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is starting in center field and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Monday, Aug. 31. OF Enrique Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has fallen off the face of the fantasy map since early June. Over his last 270 plate appearances, he has six home runs, 15 RBI and a .165/.322/.294 slash line, which shouldn't inspire confidence for Pederson at FantasyScore Monday. Make sure to avoid Hernandez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), too.

Dodgers | Justin Turner out Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 15:02:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Enrique Hernandez is playing third base against Cubs SP Jake Arrieta, and OF Joc Pederson is in Hernandez's place.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) may be due for a day off with a .136 mark in the last week, and the right vs. left matchup may be just what Turner needs. Sit him down for the night.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson likely to play Thursday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:56:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson will probably be back in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: The monumental slump that Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has endured since the All-Star break has been supremely disappointing to his owners, and it's landed him a bench spot behind Enrique Hernandez in center field. Pederson is hitting .163 (15-for-92) with three home runs, seven RBI and 35 strikeouts since July 17. It'll be hard to trust him tomorrow in daily games, even against a hittable pitcher in Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson loses starting job

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:00:50 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson has lost his starting center field job to OF Enrique Hernandez due to his prolonged slump, according to manager Don Mattingly. Pederson is batting .163 with a .333 on-base percentage and .293 slugging percentage since the All-Star break, and he's hitting only .214 with a .798 OPS and has struck out in 29.4% of his plate appearances this year. Twenty of his 23 home runs came before the break. Hernandez has hit .294 with an .840 OPS this year and has played good defense in center field. The Dodgers have worked with Pederson to shorten his swing so he can make more contact, but his slump has persisted.

Fantasy Tip: In most cases, you'll have to bite the bullet with Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and keep him on your bench until further notice. Hernandez ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) deserves to be added in all deep mixed leagues now that he'll be playing everyday for the foreseeable future.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson out of the lineup

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 10:52:38 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday, Aug. 23. 2B Enrique Hernandez will start in center field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) likely is receiving a day off. Hernandez ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has seen regular playing time lately and is hitting .326 with three home runs and six RBI this month. Hernandez could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson sitting out

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 14:15:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 22, with OF Enrique Hernandez hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has a .393-3-12 line in 61 at-bats against lefties. He's a good start on FantasyScore against Scott Kazmir.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson continues to slump

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 09:49:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is 5-for-51 with 22 strikeouts of late. OF Enrique Hernandez could be used some in center field as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Until Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) shows signs of life and starts making more contact, it's hard to rely on him in daily formats. Plus, his fantasy value in standard leagues could take a hit if he starts being benched in favor of Hernandez against left-handers.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson making bad contact

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 10:43:43 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson has hit just .167/.294/.272 in the last couple months despite hitting a home run Thursday, Aug. 13. He isn't striking out much more than he did earlier in the season or making significantly less contact, but instead he's not squaring the ball up as well as he was in the first half. His exit velocity of 94.76 through June 30 was one of the best in the league, but it has dropped more than five mph to 89.32 mph. Pitchers are adjusting to Pederson now, throwing him much more sliders, a pitch that he struggled to make good contact against. He's also making more contact on pitches outside the zone and less contact on pitches in the strike zone.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has hit a long rough patch in his rookie season. Can he adjust before the season is over? It remains to be seen. But even though his on-base skills are elite, his lack of consistent contact is maddening to his fantasy owners, and it's killing your batting average. Sit tight with Pederson for now and keep him benched.

Dodgers | No Joc Pederson against Washington

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 15:54:15 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 10. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting in center field and batting fifth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and it is worth adding, the rookie is struggling tremendously with a .180/.317/.296 slash line over his past 55 games. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a high-end fantasy option Monday, as he boasts a .408/.474/.776 line over 57 plate appearances against lefties this season. Make him a lineup priority at FantasyScore.
