Joc Pederson 22 games,  54 AB,  13 R,  21 H,  4 2B,  6 HR,  12 RBI,  3 BB,  12 SO,  .389/.421/.796

I don’t want to discredit a number of other players who have hit very well this Spring. Kiké Hernandez has impressed the past couple of weeks, Darnell Sweeney and Scott Schebler are both future major leaguers, Jimmy Rollins has been collecting a lot of hits, Kyle Jensen is hitting .409, Matt Carson, O’Koyea Dickson and Buck Britton have all hit a couple of homeruns each and even Clayton Kershaw has 2 hits in 2 at bats.

Even with all the sparkling offense, the most exciting hitter to watch this Spring has been Joc Pederson. Pederson has hit the second-most homeruns in the majors. He has struck out a lot, but that was expected. He’s been incredible, and that small sample last season during his cup of coffee in September with the Dodgers shouldn’t dictate his future as a super star center fielder. Don Mattingly may not be ready to announce Joc as the Dodgers’ Opening Day center fielder, but Joc has surely earned himself the job this Spring with his amazing Spring performance.

Is it Joctober yet?

"“I’ve just been enjoying it,” said Kendrick, who had two hits, including a massive home run, in an 11-11 tie with the Texas Rangers. “Getting to know everybody, playing with everybody. It’s awesome. Everybody gets along."
