Dodgers: Weighing the pros and cons of trading Joc Pederson
1 of 3
The Dodgers will likely trade from their depth as they did last off-season. Joc Pederson could find himself traded away from Los Angeles this winter.
Joc Pederson broke out for the Dodgers in 2015, earning an appearance in the home run derby and mashing his way to a 26 home run season. Since then, Joc has been one of the mainstays in the Dodger lineup against right-handed pitching. Aside from a demotion to the minor leagues in 2017, Joc rebounded with solid seasons in 2018 and 2019. Now he could find himself on the trade block.
Last winter the Dodgers shopped Joc Pederson around with the White Sox believed to be one of the most serious suitors. While the Dodgers hung on to Joc, they could revisit some of those trade talks this off-season to clear room on their roster and shed some salary. So what are the pros and cons of potentially dealing Joc away?
