Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson is the captain of the outfield . That status comes with great responsibility, and also a lot risk. On any given night, for instance, he could knock rib cages with both the left- and rightfielder.
Pederson discovered this the hard way on Tuesday.
First, he got in Cody Bellinger’s way…
Pederson then got hurt — after colliding with Yasiel Puig much more violently in the 10th inning. The good news is that Puig made the grab. The bad is that Pederson was forced to leave the game.
It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
