Lots of minor leaguers will make their way to the bigs starting today as minor league seasons end and major league rosters expand. One of the better ones coming up is Joc Pederson, who was just called up by the Dodgers from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Pederson won the Pacific Coast League MVP Award after batting .303/.435/.582 with 33 home runs and 30 stolen bases over 121 games this season.
The Dodgers announced their initial round of September expanded roster call-ups today, and the five names aren’t really much of a surprise. Every player listed here can be eligible for the postseason roster, should the Dodgers want to include them.

On Saturday, Los Angeles Dodgers top prospect Joc Pederson accomplished something that hadn’t been done in 80 years in the Pacific Coast League.
Pederson stole his 30th base of the season for the Albuquerque Isotopes, making him the first PCL player since 1934 to steal 30 bases and hit 30 home runs.

On Friday, August 29th, the Albuquerque Isotopes are giving away star outfielder Joc Pederson’s 1994 Buick Century in a raffle.

When I went to Rancho Cucamonga in April, I was hoping to see Joc Pederson in action. Instead, he was out after straining his groin. But I did get to see him in Stockton a couple weeks ago, and I was impressed.
He is easily the Dodgers' best position prospect and will be ranked a little higher in my midseason prospect rankings (out by the end of June). I ranked him No....
