BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
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)
