The Dodgers have signed 11th-round draft pick Joc Pederson, per Jim Callis of Baseball America:â†µ
The Dodgers and 11th-round pick Joc Pederson have agreed to terms on a $600,000 bonus, four times MLB’s recommended $150,000 maximum for choices after the fifth round. It’s also the largest bonus Los Angeles has paid out so far to a 2010 draftee, though they’re expected to make a well-over-slot run at first-round pick/Louisiana State quarterback Zach Leeâ†µ
Pederson had committed to play for USC, which fired head coach Chad Kreuter earlier this month.â†µ
Pederson, a left-handed center fielder from Palo Alto High School in northern California, is the son of Stu Pederson, a former major league outfielder who was drafted by the Dodgers in the ninth round of the 1981 draft.
