BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)Does Adam Duvall fall of a cliff Joc Pederson style after the all-star break? Or can he sustain the power?
(Alex from Austin)
If by "sustain the power" you mean keep hitting home runs at the pace he has so far this year, then no, I don't think he'll sustain the power since that would put him at 45-50 HR for the season. That said, I think he's good and he's here to stay. The power will fall back to earth a little bit and the average could take a bigger fall, but that's a long way from cratering like Joc Pederson did last year. He won't fall off that badly in AVG or HR. He probably won't contend for MVP, though, which he would if he sustained this HR pace. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-05-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Joc Pederson going to be a platoon hitter for the next few years? His splits against lefties are terrible but he is oh so good against righties, makes him hard to own in a fantasy league right?
(Craig from LA)
The cool thing about the lefty-hitting side of a platoon is that they get more PA's, which makes him more viable in a fantasy league. If you're in a league that sets a lineup every day instead of once per week, even better. In terms of his future, it might be too early to say, but the splits are indeed not ideal. (Nicolas Stellini)
2016-03-14 14:30:00 (link to chat)Do you see Joc Pederson turning it around? Or is the best we can hope for something in between his two halves.
(Tony from Boston)
I've heard he re-worked his swing a little bit in an effort to make more contact, but realistically, the overall product is probably somewhere between the two extremes. Still has some value even when he's in a rut though. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you view Joc Pederson in fantasy terms where OBP replaces AVG? Does he hit enough to stay in the lineup and become an OBP 5 category monster?
(Jason from Florida)
New manager, clean slate? Yeah, probably. Peterson's struggles in the second half were WEIRD. The outfield picture out there is so crowded, hard to count on his playing time, but I think he's more Good Joc than Bad Joc. (Matthew Trueblood)
2016-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joc Pederson has come to spring training supposedly with a new swing he's worked on in the offseason, a la Mike Moustakas. He says he's worked on better contact and spraying the ball to all fields and not concerned with hitting HR's. How much of this spring training talk do you buy into? Does it take a couple of years to really adjust your swing?
(DavidMGibson from Home of the BC Manatees)
The "new swing" isn't quite the "best shape of my life" in terms of making me roll my eyes, but it's close. That being said, it's nice to hear, and if Pederson can make more contact/trust the natural strength, it will help the hit tool immensely. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)If we're just talking about hitting profiles, are Joc Pederson and Domingo Santana close to the same guy?
(holmesp2001 from St Louis)
Yikes. The strange thing about Pederson is that he didn't run at all really last year. I'm not putting those two in the same category, it's way too early to write off Pederson. (George Bissell)
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)At what point is Sonny Gray traded? Is the return for Miller a reasonable expectation for the A's, or will they get even more? Some package around Joc Pederson and Jose De Leon should be enticing.
(Slinkey1998 from California)
Gray likely gets moved this July. They should get more than that although trying to guess what the market is going to look like months from now is a fool's errrand. (Mike Gianella)
2015-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you could only choose one, who do you choose among Odubel Herrera, Joc Pederson and Delino Deshields and why?
(Pete from Vancouver)
Pederson. Yes, he was dreadful at the end of 2015, but this is still a guy who can get on base, play okay defense in center and hit for power/steal bases. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-11-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)You are starting a team tomorrow and have your choice among three CFs. Please rank them in order of preference: Delino Deshields, Joc Pederson and Odubal Herrera
(David from Winnipeg)
This one tough for me, because each guy is a rational choice. I think I'd go with Herrera, then Joc, then Delino Deshields, Jr. I fully expected to just pick Joc because his upside is a bit higher, but it's a long swing and that concerns me. It's kind of a toss up for me there.

Delino, I like the profile, but he just doesn't excite me. He probably has the highest floor of the three though. (Jeff Long)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)I know no likes to give out comps, but is there one that sticks out for Alex Verdugo? He appears to be figuring things out, and I was curious to what potential his tools may have. Thanks
(ike from o)
The Joc Pederson comp is the one that has been rolled out there, and if the development continues apace, that makes sense. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Will Joc Pederson continue to slide or will he bounce back to what he was earlier in the season?
(Graham from Richmond, VA)
Joc is what he is. Not to go all Belichick on you there, but he's going to walk, he will hit home runs and he will strikeout. I'm shocked he hasn't stolen more bases to be honest. About two weeks ago on the TINO podcast there was an outstanding (and long) discussion about Pederson, highly recommend it. (George Bissell)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Joc Pederson, why is not enough made of the fact that his brothers are named Champ and Tyger?
(Scott Van Slyke from LA)
Joc Champ and Tyger. That's a helluva family. Couple of more in here. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-05-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which has more upside to build a team around Joc Pederson or George Springer. OB1
(OB1 from Tampa)
Oh boy this is a good question. I go with Springer because I think there's more pop in the bat, but all Pederson does is get better. They're both fantastic and you should love them equally and thank them for being in your life. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)If Joc Pederson is a Danny Trejo movie, then which Danny Trejo movie is he? Also Nsync or Backstreet Boys?
(Jaguar from Jacksonville)
You probably didn't think I was going to say this, but Joc Pederson is Spy Kids. What did you think I was going to say Machete? Get outta here.

Also, backstreet boys. Killed it in This is the end. (Nick Shlain)
2015-03-12 15:00:00 (link to chat)I need reassurance. 12 team, 5 x 5, OBP, $330 budget. I traded Joc Pederson, $4, & A. Almora, $4, for F. Freeman, $16, & R. Stephenson $4. I gutted the team last year for prospects, so I need everything. Good, Bad, or Ugly?
(kbs from Key Largo)
Good, although dynasty/dollar valuation is not my forte. I'm rather low on Almora (to plug it again, Jeff Moore and I have an article on why, out tomorrow). (Andrew Koo)
2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who has a better 2015? Joc Pederson or Jose Soler?
(chaneyhey from St. Louis)
Better 2015? Pederson. Better career? Mmm... probably Soler, but close.

If you mean for your fantasy team, it's hard to say who will get the opportunity. (Al Skorupa)
2015-02-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)George Springer or Joc Pederson. Is it close?
(Joe from LA)
What's interesting about Springer is that people don't realize he's actually older than Giancarli-Mike Stanton. Pederson is 2.5 years younger, and has far better bat-to-ball, although Springer certainly edges him out in power. It kind of depends on what type of player you like, and I'll probably still take Springer by a nose just because he did SLG .460 in limited time last year. Yet, it's definitely close. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-02-13 19:00:00 (link to chat)NL Roto Keeper league Keep 15 starters and three $0 reserves. 14 hitters, 5 outfielders, 9 pitchers on the active squad, My outfiled consists of: Gomez, Marte and Polanco, have Joc Pederson as a reserve, so can be inserted into the starting line-up at any time post draft so, I'm thinking: Heyward, Zimmerman(love the 3rd eligility) and Holliday Holiday as my draft targets for my 4th outfielder or two of them. Stanton is out of my price range, with the salary I am keeping, my main sources for power are Goldschmidt and Adrian Gonzalez. I'm heavily leaning towards Heyward, with Zim a close 2nd, Holliday 3rd choice, may have to lower my draft expectations and target a Pagan, Aoki, or Venable. Definitely have to draft 2 outfielders or 3, with one to serve in utility role Any and all thoughts are appreciated,. Thanks in advance, big fan of your work, and always enjoy these chats! Hope you are having a stellar day!
(Dragonbreath from Gurnee, IL.)
It's kind of hard to guess given that I'm not sure who grabbing Stanton impacts your salary or draft standing based on how you phrased your question. Yes, I'd definitely want Heyward, and would lean Zimmerman over Holliday due to the 3B eligibility (plus Holliday's age/gradual decline. If you have to go that next group, Pagan is your guy. Venable isn't going to play this year unless he's traded. (Mike Gianella)
2015-02-13 19:00:00 (link to chat)What rooks do u see making an impact in the bigs this year?
(Tico Pride from Costa Rica)
In fantasy, there are quite a few. Rusney Castillo, Yasmany Tomas, Steven Souza, Kris Bryant, and Joc Pederson are all names that pop. (Mike Gianella)
2015-02-16 11:00:00 (link to chat)Will Joc Pederson play 150 games in LA this year?
(John from LA)
I can't tell if you're asking whether he'll spend all season up or if he'll get hurt. I'd vote for the under though. (R.J. Anderson)
2015-02-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)Does Joc Pederson have 25/25 upside in the MLB? How much did the environment help him in AAA? Can he hit .270 at some point in his career? What type of line could he put up?
(Jameis Winston from At Shoprite stealing crab legs)
I don't think 25 homers or a .270 average is unrealistic in his best seasons, although he's probably a little shy of both of those in a typical year. Good OBP though. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2015-01-08 12:00:00 (link to chat)Whose long term future do you like better: Joc Pederson or Gregory Polanco?
(chaneyhey from St. Louis)
This one is tough, and honestly it's probably a better question for our prospect team. That said, I'll throw my opinion out there and you can take or leave it. Pederson came into 2014 as a tweener guy for me, but he showed that the on base skills and power are for real. He's a solid corner OFer who could play CF in a pinch it seems. Polanco had a rough 2014, but there's real talent in there. That said, it basically comes down to Pederson's OBP skills and Polanco's power for me.

Given that choice... I'm inclined to go with Pederson. Same ceiling I think, but Pederson's floor might be a bit higher. (Jeff Long)
2014-10-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Joc Pederson figures it ot in the bigs in 2015, and plays like the stud he is projected to be?
(Dragonbreath from Gurnee, IL)
Maybe not 2015, maybe later. But I think he'll be good. (Rob Arthur)
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you be surprised if Joc Pederson becomes a more valuable fantasy player than Wil Myers? How do you value Pederson moving forward?
(Jeff from Des Moines)
I wouldn't be surprised becaue Pederson runs and Myers (for the most part) doesn't. I'd say Pederson is a $15 or so player initially with a $25 ceiling. (Mike Gianella)
2014-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Harry, I need some help deciding on keepers. I can only keep 9 of the following players, who should I stick with? (I am currently in rebuilding mode) Mesoraco, Zunino, Kipnis, Trumbo, Rollins, Bogaerts, Addison Russell, Kris Bryant, Castellanos, Marte, Yelich, Joc Pederson, Bryce Harper Thanks!
(Dan from Toronto)
this one is out of my domain, I'l defer to the Fantasy guys on this one (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Joc Pederson overrated, being a product of PCL?
(Leslie from Monterey, CA)
I don't think he's overrated, but his numbers are probably at least a product of the PCL. So are everyone's who's putting up monster numbers in that league. He's a very good prospect though and properly rated. (Jeff Moore)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it crazy to think that Joc Pederson becomes a better player than Wil Myers?
(Hal from Lexington )
Not at all. (Jeff Moore)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)dynasty, 12 team, h2h, 25 MLB, 20 MiLB. What should I be willing to pay for Joc Pederson? The current owner is in contention, while I am not. He inquires on Joey Votto although I am hesitant to move him with his stock so low. He's also offered Pederson in a package for Carlos Gonzalez. What type of impact do you see for Joc when he finally comes up? Is his 20/20 upside real? Should I make a play to get him with my current assets? Thanks!
(Greg from Cleveland)
I gave up Andrew Heaney for Joc in a prospect swap. I've heard that Joc is a hard worker with the tools to succeed. In my mind that gives him a good chance of hitting his upside.

All that said there's no way I'm giving Votto or CarGo for Joc (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Joc Pederson comes up this year? He has nothing left to prove.
(Norwun from NYC)
The Dodgers are going to have to create room. They have about 14 OFs. I'd love to see how he does at the big league level, because he's got some impact tools. I'm not sold he sticks in CF for the long term, but he's athletic enough to play it now, and frankly, is the best CF option in the Dodgers org. However, they're paying other guys a lot of money, and not getting much production.

Short answer: he may get a cup in Sept, but they're going to have to figure that entire situation out this offseason, and it's probably going to involve eating salary. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)If Matt Kemp does get moved by the trade deadline, is Joc Pederson an immediate call up?
(Adrian from LA)
Dodgers would have to pick up a lot of money, and I don't see that happening. Would love to see Joc, though. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hypothetical Trade: The Rockies send Tulowitzki to the Dodgers for Joc Pederson and Julio Urias. Who says no? The Dodger can move HanRam to 3rd this(where he should be),aquire a SS for next year, they can afford him, and the Rockies get 2 top 20 prospects to add to their hoard. Smart in-division trade?
(Hypothetical Trades from Everywhere)
Rockies say no. I think they're inclined to say no to almost anything, and Urias plus Pederson isn't an overwhelming enough package. (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)What's up with Joc Pederson's strikeout rate?
(ketchup pickle from condiment land)
He sees a lot of pitches and has some swing and miss in his game. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many more big call-ups do you think will happen this season, and who do you think they will be?
(Graham from Richmond, VA)
There wonít be too many more, but a few. Noah Syndergaard should get a call. The Mets have to get that poor kid out of Vegas. Lindor could get a chance once the Indians are out of things, especially if they move Asdrubal Cabrera. Joc Pederson will get called up to the Rays when they trade him for David Price. Wait, what? (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Joc Pederson injury is disappointing. Any news on the severity? How do you see LA handling their outfield log jam?
(Peter from LA)
I haven't heard anything other than what was generally reported, which is that he left the game but didn't have to go to the hospital. I don't know how Pederson is going to fit in yet and (injury not withstanding), it still wouldn't shock me to see him in another uniform, though I don't THINK the Dodgers should move him. They're going to need young, cheap talent and he's a good one. That said, you'd think they'd have to make a trade at some point right? Someone will take Matt Kemp off of their hands, but that still doesn't leave room for Pederson if everyone's healthy. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)20 team dynasty league and my only SS are Cozart and Rutledge. Should I trade Joc Pederson and Matt Joyce for Jean Segura?
(BigMac25 from Montreal)
No. I agree that shortstop is an issue on your roster, but Joc Pederson is too much for Segura. Segura will have the steals. He needs to prove he can actually keep the baseball off the ground, if he's going to be anything more than a slap hitter w/ a solid-average glove at shortstop. I thought he'd bounce back from his poor second half in 2013. I've been disappointed.

To be clear, I still like Segura well-enough in dynasty leagues. Pederson is just too much to give. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)It would be a colossal waste of time for the Rays to demand Polanco from the Pirates. What's a more realistic trade scenario involving Price? Joc Pederson plus a low-level pitcher? Piscotty & Marco Gonzalez? Thanks.
(R.J. from Palo Alto)
Of course it would would be a waste of time for the Pirates. They wouldn't make that deal.

I don't think either of those are good enough offers for someone like David Price. You have to realize that he's not a one-year rental. James Shields netted Wil Myers PLUS. David Price is better than James Shields. Whatever the Rays get in return for Price, it's going to be a haul. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Dodgers do with Joc Pederson? They can't let him waste away in Triple-A all year, can they?
(Kingpin from Grinnell, IA)
He's hardly wasting away in Triple-A, having just turned 22. Would be still be there if he were on any other team? Probably not, but it's not like he's old and watching his career go by. He still has less than 300 plate appearances at the highest level of the minors and is striking out 29.5 percent of the time. Let's let him work on those things before hew start replacing Matt Kemp. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)What do you see for Archie Bradleys' near future? Joc Pederson up in 2015 0r 16? Thanks for the chat, regardless if you get to these queations
(Dragonbreath from Gurnee, IL)
Bradley needs to get healthy and get innings. He's close to major league ready, but the key for him is fastball command, as it is for plenty of young starters. He needs to command his fastball to all four quadrants, and even though the stuff is outstanding, he'd fare poorly at the major league level at this moment, due to some command issues. The profile is a top of the rotation pitcher; he has all the tools.

The Pederson situation is really intriguing. There's nothing the dodgers can do at this point, they're kind of stuck. I think Ethier gets moved, though. They can't have all five of those guys at once. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think will be the better MLB player. Austin Meadows or Joc Pederson?
(Aaron from LA)
Pederson and I don't think it will be remotely close. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Give me a player or two whose value you see going up the most this season, particularly in Scoresheet, who you think would be a good trade target.
(ALF from Melmac)
You may be talking about major leaguers, but their values are pretty well set. It may not be the answer to your question, but your best bet in looking to maximize trade value is to look for players who are temporarily blocked, such as your Joc Pederson types. Is he a type? Maybe itís just Joc Pederson. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joc Pederson: the numbers in the minors sure look good. In a pts. league where walks matter, would you pass on him to go after a Clint Frazier or a Dahl?
(balticwolf from Silver Spring MD)
I'd go for the much-closer Joc over the other two, even though they might have a touch higher ceiling (Paul Sporer)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Mike: Joc Pederson and Maikel Franco. Which one, in your opinion, will be the better player in 3 years? Am I correct in saying that Pederson has the higher floor and Franco has the higher ceiling?
(balticwolf from Silver Spring MD)
Hi balticwolf.

Hope you're staying warm.

Maybe it's because I live in Philadelphia and am succumbing to the hype, but I like Franco more than Pederson. Franco seems like he could be a big time power hitter if everything breaks right, whereas Pederson strikes me as a more solid all around outfielder but with less of a chance of achieving star potential. Regarding floor and ceiling, I'm not sure that's exactly right, but I would agree that Pederson has a narrower range of expectations (in my view) than Franco does. I don't see Franco crashing and burning, but if he was "only" an ordinary 15 HR/.270 BA guy it wouldn't surprise me. (Mike Gianella)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wondering what you think of the Dodger's prospects Zach Lee and Joc Pederson? Think something like those guys to the Rays for Price is in the realm of what the Rays would be looking for?
(DodgerDoodle from Bellevue, WA)
It would take more. Urias would have to be in that deal for me, as would Seager. (Jason Parks)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jackie Bradley or Joc Pederson?
(Armin from Salt Lake)
Oooh, good question. Give me JBJ by a hair. (Jason Cole)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of player do you see Joc Pederson as?
(trigger1583 from CA)
Joc Pederson is a solid-average Left Fielder for me. The hit tool and baseball IQ will be enough to keep him in the lineup. However, he showed in the Futures Game batting practice that he has more raw power than people give him credit for. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Joc Pederson a top 50 caliber prospect or he's not even in discussion?
(Marco from Overseas)
Top 101 is more likely. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-05-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joc Pederson has done nothing but rake but never shows up on top prospect lists... is he considered not toolsy enough to succeed in MLB?
(Ken from Riverside)
He has tools. My biggest issue with him is the profile. I don't see him as an up-the-middle talent, and I'm not sold the bat is of first-division quality in a corner. He plays the game with skill and intensity, and I really like the player. I think he could end up a second division regular or perhaps a 4th outfielder, but he's going to bring it every chance he gets and he might exceed his ceiling and make me look foolish for doubting it. (Jason Parks)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Can Joc Pederson handle CF? Would he, DJ Davis, Brian Goodwin, or David Dahl be in your top 50 prospects?
(Matt from Chicago)
I don't see Pederson fitting in center field. He doesn't really fit that high on my overall prospect rankings.

Dahl would absolutely be in my Top 50. Goodwin would be in the mix. I think Davis needs to develop some before he's in that group. (Mark Anderson)
2012-08-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joc Pederson. Earlier in the year you said he projected as a LF and was a 'gamer' with no tool above a 6. Anything change? Whats his projection now and why has he killed the ball in A+?
(Based from South Pasadena)
Nope. I still think he fits that profile. The hit tool is legit. He's a total gamer with solid-avg to plus tools and a lot of real baseball skills. He's not your ideal top offense prospect, but he's going to play in the majors and that is the name of the game. (Jason Parks)
