Do some stats suggest Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson is below average? - LA Times

Andrew Friedman farts in Fangraph’s Defensive Stats’ general direction.

The Dodgers have benched rookie center fielder Joc Pederson, who batted .169 in July and is batting .114 in August. The team had stuck with him for weeks, even as his offensive performance dropped, citing his outstanding defense.

However, according to a variety of statistics available on the Fangraphs website, Pederson’s defense ranks below average among major league center fielders.

Andrew Friedman, the Dodgers’ president of baseball operations, declined to discuss the team’s internal evaluation processes but said they rank Pederson’s defense much more highly.

“There are real limitations to the defensive metrics in the public sphere,” Friedman said. “Through watching him on a daily basis and through our information, we’re very confident Joc is an above-average defender.”
