  • Joc Pederson Homers In Second Straight Game

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    Arizona Diamondbacks designated hitter Joc Pederson homered for the second straight game in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Cubs. Pederson came on to pinch hit in the sixth for Blaze Alexander, lining out to first in his initial at-bat before homering in the next at-bat in the bottom of the ninth off of lefty Drew Smyly. Pederson is off to a solid start this season, hitting .333 (11-for-33) with two doubles, two home runs, five RBI, and seven runs scored. Last season, Pederson saw an increase in his BB% by 3.7% over the prior year, up to 13.4%, and it appears he's brought the keen eye into 2024, having walked nine times while striking out just once. The result is a superb .467 OBP thus far.

  • Joc Pederson Sitting Versus Southpaw

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Joc Pederson (rest) is out of the starting lineup ahead of Friday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. This appears to be a routine rest day for Pederson against a left-handed starting pitcher. The D-Backs will play matchups here and go with Blaze Alexander at designated hitter versus Steven Matz. There's not a ton of value here with Alexander, so most fantasy managers should be able to find a better streaming option. The expectation is that Pederson should return to the lineup following this game.

  • Gabriel Moreno, Joc Pederson Sitting Out Wednesday

    Headshot for Gabriel Moreno

    Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Gabriel Moreno and outfielder/designated hitter Joc Pederson are both out of the team's starting lineup on Wednesday as they face the Colorado Rockies. Tucker Barnhart is doing the catching and will hit eighth, while Ketel Marte will serve as the designated hitter and bat leadoff against Rockies lefty Austin Gomber. Kevin Newman is at second base and is batting ninth. Moreno had four hits on Tuesday but unsurprisingly will be on the bench in a day game after a night game. Pederson will now be on the bench for the fourth time in five games with Arizona facing a southpaw. After Marte went hitless on Monday and got the day off on Tuesday, he should be thrown back into all fantasy lineups on Wednesday, as he's hit a career .389 with two home runs and five RBI in 18 at-bats against Gomber.

  • Joc Pederson Moves Into Starting Lineup

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Joc Pederson will slide into the starting lineup on Friday. The lefty slugger will play after sitting out the season opener with a left-handed starter opposing them in that one. Pederson will serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth versus right-hander Cal Quantrill on Friday. The left-handed slugger looks to join in on the fun after watching his team put up 16 runs in the season opener. Fantasy managers who have Pederson rostered should make sure to get him in their lineups.

  • Joc Pederson Smashes Two-Run Homer In Big Spring Performance

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    Arizona Diamondbacks designated hitter Joc Pederson went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's 7-5 spring win over the Chicago Cubs. He took Chicago Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks deep in the third inning for his first homer of the spring. Pederson tacked on an RBI single in the fourth inning for his third RBI in Friday's victory. The 31-year-old is hitting .308 for a .976 OPS in six games this spring. He signed a one-year, one-year, $9.5 million contract with the Diamondback this offseason and is expected to serve as the team's primary designated hitter versus righties in 2024. Pederson slashed .235/.348/.416 with 15 home runs and a 111 wRC+ across 425 plate appearances for the Giants in 2023. The former Giant has an NFBC ADP of 528 and is mainly a fantasy option in NL-Only and deep-league formats.

  • Joc Pederson Back In Cactus League Lineup

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder/designated hitter Joc Pederson (personal) is back in the team's Cactus League lineup on Thursday, starting in left field and hitting fifth against the San Francisco Giants. Pederson was scratched from the spring training lineup on Tuesday because he had to attend to a personal matter, but he's back out on the field on Thursday. The 31-year-old left-handed slugger is coming off a down year in 2023 for the San Francisco Giants in which he hit .235/.348/.416 with 15 home runs, 51 RBI and 59 runs scored in 358 at-bats a year after his second All-Star selection in 2022. Pederson is mostly expected to serve as Arizona's designated hitter against right-handed pitching in his first year in the desert. He's now in a more favorable hitting environment, but a likely platoon role gives Pederson a low fantasy ceiling and floor.

  • Joc Pederson Scratched For Personal Reasons

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder/designated hitter Joc Pederson was scratched from Tuesday's Cactus League contest for personal reasons, but he'll be back in spring training action in a couple of days, according to manager Torey Lovullo. There is really nothing for fantasy managers to worry about here. The 31-year-old veteran left-handed slugger comes to Arizona after a disappointing .235/.348/.416 slash line with 15 home runs and 51 RBI in 121 games for the San Francisco Giants following his All-Star campaign in the Bay Area in 2022. He still has outfield eligibility for fantasy managers, but that may not be the case in 2025, as he's expected to serve mostly as the D-backs' DH in 2024. Pederson is a fair bet to bounce back at least slightly in a better hitting environment, but a potential platoon role will also hurt his overall fantasy upside.

  • Diamondbacks To Sign Joc Pederson

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    The Diamondbacks continue adding to the lineup. They’re reportedly in agreement with designated hitter/outfielder Joc Pederson on a one-year, $12.5MM guarantee. The Excel Sports Management client will receive a $9.5MM salary next season and is due a $3MM buyout on a 2025 mutual option valued at $14MM. Pederson, 32 in April, has been a potent…

  • Joc Pederson, D-Backs Agree To One-Year Deal

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed outfielder Joc Pederson to a one-year contract with a mutual option for the 2025 season. Financial terms of the pact have not yet been disclosed. An outfielder by trade, the D-backs reportedly view Pederson as mostly a designated hitter as he has consistently graded out poorly with his glove throughout his big-league career. The 31-year-old spent the 2023 season with the Giants, hitting .235 with 15 home runs alongside an impressive 13.4% BB% across 425 plate appearances, largely in a corner outfield platoon role with some DH reps mixed in. He will almost strictly face right-handed pitching in 2024 as the lefty-swinger owns a career .248 isolated power and .834 OPS against opposite-handed pitching. His platoon splits put a hard cap on his fantasy value.

  • D-Backs Showing Interest In Joc Pederson

    Headshot for Joc Pederson

    Free-agent outfielder Joc Pederson is receiving interest from the reigning NL champion Arizona Diamondbacks. While an outfielder by trade, the D-backs are viewing the 31-year-old as a designated hitter as Pederson has consistently drawn poor defensive grades throughout his career. His bat has largely remained productive, however, as he hit .235 with 15 home runs, a 13.4% BB%, and a .764 OPS across 425 plate appearances in a platoon corner outfield/DH role for the San Francisco Giants in 2023. He also struck out in just 20.9% of his plate appearances a season ago, his second-best mark in parts of 10 big-league seasons and well below his 23.7% career mark. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Emmanuel Rivera are currently projected to handle the bulk of DH reps for the D-backs in 2024.
