Dodgers can get themselves right with a few moves

Remember when the Dodgers were an annual lock to win the National League West? Well, they’re not anymore. In fact, they’re not even a lock to reach the postseason this year. Following three consecutive NL West titles from 2013 to 2015, the Dodgers find themselves in a funk in 2016, only two games over .500 and six and a half games behind the division's first-place Giants. ...

Dodgers OF Joc Pederson leaves imprint in outfield wall after terrific catch

Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson has struggled at the plate thus far, batting just .226, including .175 with zero home runs in his last 15 games. Where he hasn't been a letdown, though, is in the outfield. Pederson flashed his glove regularly as a rookie in 2015, and he's continued to do much of the same this season, as evidenced by this fearless play on Sunday. Mallex...

Joc Pederson: Barry Bonds snubbed me on photo request

Joc Pederson, who was born in 1992, grew up watching Barry Bonds do things on a baseball field that most men aren’t capable of. Like many other children of the 1990s and 2000s, Pederson idolized Bonds. Not anymore. Bonds is working as a hitting coach with the Miami Marlins this season.

Umpire hit in nuts by Joc Pederson bunt

It’s a dangerous job sitting behind home plate, and home plate umpire David Rackley found that out in Sunday’s Dodgers-Padres game. With Joc Pederson at the plate, in the fifth inning, all was quiet on the home plate front. Then, Pederson decided to sneak in a bunt attempt at the last second, and the ball careened off his bat and drilled Rackley right in the nuts. Rackley stayed...
