The Dodgers will probably make a few moves this off-season that impact key members of their long-standing core — left-handed outfielder Joc Pederson being amongst those most likely to be impacted.
Pederson, 27, is heading into the final year of arbitration with the Dodgers and seems poised to cash in on a large pay day. With the Dodgers capable of pulling off blockbuster trades with their insane prospect depth, major league depth, and financial flexibility, Pederson could easily be a piece moved to match contracts.
Let the record books show that Joc Pederson won the 2017 World Series MVP…. among dodgers he had most HR (3), most R (6), tied for most H (6) and RBI (5), best OPS (1.344, next closest with 10+ AB was CT3 at 0.751) pic.twitter.com/n319uSb5xW

ESPN’s David Schoenfield identified Pederson as one of MLB’s top ten likeliest players to be dealt that are not named Mookie Betts or Francisco Lindor. The funny thing is, Pederson could very easily be dealt in a trade for one of those two men.
