The Chicago Cubs have actually gotten some appealing news on veteran outfielder Joc Pederson.
As you can see from the tweet above, Pederson indeed is feeling far better and his injury does not seem major whatsoever. The Cubs wont rush him back, of course, however its appearing like fans can see him back in the lineup quickly enough.
Once he does go back to action, Ross and Co. will hope Pederson can return to his usual standout kind. That just hasnt held true so far in 2021. Before being placed on the IL, Pederson was sporting a. 137 batting average with only one homer and seven hits. When he signed his 1 year contract, those are certainly not the kinds of statistics the team was anticipating from him.
Looking ahead to the rest of the project, Pederson and the rest of the people in the dugout requirement to wake up at the dish. The Cubs are a frustrating 10-10 on the year as of this writing and sit in 3rd place of the NL Central standings.
