Dodgers: 5 biggest Joc Pederson moments to remember him by
An end of an era came unexpectedly Friday morning, as news spread that longtime Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson had signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Cubs.
Pederson moving on means the Dodgers lose one of their first of a bumper crop of rookies that came along last decade that turned the Dodgers into a home run-crushing team.
In his seven seasons with the Dodgers, Pederson hit 130 home runs, good for 21st all time in franchise history. Despite hitting just .230 over his Dodgers career, Pederson had OPS of .806 thanks to his ability to draw walks (66 per year, on average) and slugging average (.470).
Pederson was the second-longest tenured position player behind Justin Turner and, like many, he finally was able to celebrate a World Series title this past October after six straight playoff losses. In his time with the Dodgers, Pederson surely provided countless moments that fans will never forget.
