Joc Pederson

OF, Los Angeles Dodgers

Joc Pederson didn’t really have that good of a regular season. It was only 60 games because of the COVID-19 pandemic but his 60 games weren’t good at all. He had issues but they were masked by the amazing roster that the Los Angeles Dodgers fielded in 2020. He did, however, have an MVP level postseason for the Dodgers en route to them winning the World Series for the first time in over 30 years.

If he does in fact leave the Dodgers, and it seems like he will, the White Sox should strongly consider him. They have considered him in the past via trade but now they would just be able to sign him in free agency. It would be cool to see him come to Chicago and try and be their new right fielder. He can also play the other outfield positions if needed for whatever reason.

He would also help them in the leadership department. He is a 28-year-old veteran who has been around the block during his seven-year Dodger career. He has played in the World Series three times (winning in 2020) so you know that he has the postseason experience. If he were in the White Sox clubhouse, he might be able to help the younger players get over that hump in the playoffs and help them know what to expect. This is the type of signing that would help them both on and off the field.
