Legends on Deck’s Top 25 Prospects: No.’s 25-20

20. Joc Pederson, CF

 

Team: Dodgers

Age: 22

Height: 6’1

Weight: 185

Bats/Throws: Left/Left

Pederson had a monster 2014 season in Triple-A, resulting in the Pacific Coast League’s first ever 30/30 season. In total, the 2010 11th round pick hit .303 with a .435 OBP, 33 home runs, 17 doubles and 30 steals.

The Palo Alto, CA native is a very solid all-around prospect. He has a sweet swing from the left side with plus raw power and a patient approach. Pederson isn’t exactly a burner on the bases, but he’s got above average speed and good instincts. Defensively he is a solid centerfielder with a good arm.

Outlook: Pederson was probably the Dodgers best option in center in 2014, and will likely open 2015 in that spot. With solid to plus tools across the board he figures to be the Dodgers long term solution in CF.

Risk: Low. Big season in AAA and cup of coffee in majors in 2014. Ready for everyday spot.

ETA: 2015
