Player Outlook
Joc Pederson accepted the $19 million qualifying offer to remain in San Francisco for 2023, and he delivered an underwhelming performance with 15 homers and a .245/.348/.416 slash line, which was good for a 111 wRC+. He saw most of his playing time at designated hitter but retained outfield eligibility with 37 appearances, and he's unlikely to play the field much more than that going forward with minus-20 DRS across the last two years. Pederson improved his walk rate to 13.7 percent but posted a career-low .181 ISO despite a career-best 52.2 percent hard-hit rate, which resulted in a .263 xBA and .483 xSLG. A rebound in 2024 could be in store given those expected figures, especially if his new team has a more favorable home than pitcher-friendly Oracle Park. A .606 OPS in 52 plate appearances against lefties likely means the lefty-hitting Pederson is destined for a platoon role once again, regardless of where he signs.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Sits against southpaw

Pederson should serve as Arizona's primary designated hitter against right-handed starting pitchers, but he'll give way to Ketel Marte with Gomber on the bump.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Idle versus lefty

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Not starting against lefty

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Resting versus southpaw

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Perfect day at dish

    Pederson went 4-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over the Rockies. Making his Diamondbacks debut after taking a seat Opening Day against lefty Kyle Freeland, Pederson immediately made an impact. He ripped a double in the first inning followed by an RBI single in the third. Three of his four hits registered over 98 mph off the bat, including a pair over 100 mph. Arizona has the depth to sit Pederson against lefties often, but his ceiling against righties will keep him relevant in most fantasy formats.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Launches home run Friday

    Pederson started at designated hitter and went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Friday's Cactus League game against the Cubs. Pederson swatted his first spring home run and is 4-for-13 with three walks through six games. He's started four of those games in the outfield, but Pederson is expected to serve as the primary DH against right-handers in 2024.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Back in lineup Thursday

    Pederson (personal) will start in left field and bat fifth in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Giants. Pederson was scratched from the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers after he left the team to attend to a personal matter, but he missed just a couple of days before returning to camp. Though he'll be drawing the start in left field Thursday, Pederson is expected to primarily serve as a designated hitter versus right-handed pitching once the regular season gets underway.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Scratched for personal reasons

    Pederson was scratched from the lineup for Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Rangers due to personal reasons and will be away from the team for a couple days, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports. The specifics of the situation remain unclear, but Pederson isn't expected to be away for long. At this point, there's no reason to expect his availability to begin the season will be affected by the absence.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Signs on with Arizona

    Pederson signed a one-year, $9.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks on Thursday, which includes a mutual option for 2025, John Gambadoro of 98.7 FM Phoenix reports. The 31-year-old fits Arizona's desire to add some thump in the designated hitter spot from the left side. Pederson slashed a pedestrian .235/.348/.416 with 15 home runs over 121 contests with the Giants in 2023, but he had a solid .786 OPS versus right-handers and boasts a career .834 OPS against righties.

  • Giants' Joc Pederson: Sits against Kershaw

    Pederson will be on the bench against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers on Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
