He's HERE!!!! Joc Pederson Finally in the Bigs

TGR has gotten excited in the past about potential superstars. Taylor Mays. Gabe Carimi. Maybe even throw Nate Freiman in the mix. But during September call ups the Dodgers finally brought up prized prospect and AAA MVP, Joc Pederson. In Pederson the Jewish people have a potential Superstar on the level of Ryan Braun and Ian Kinsler. Pederson also played for Team Israel in the last WBC. He struck out yesterday in his first appearance, but we cannot wait to see his progress. HERE is so more on Pederson. HERE are his minor league stats.
