He landed awkwardly on his right shoulder when he dove for Josh Vitters' of Triple-A Iowa's bloop since to right-center field. He got up, grabbed his arm, and left the field. Pederson walked off the field on his own. It was later indicated that the injury was not serious enough to warrant a hospital visit. As reported by Ken Gurnick. Mike Baxter came in as a defensive replacement and Jeremy Hazelbaker moved to center.

The 22-year-old prospect is hitting .319 with 17 home runs, 42 RBI's, and an OPS of 1.005. Those are very impressive for a youngster. He also hits .393 with runners on base and .276 with runners in scoring position. He was the 11th-round pick in 2010 and was a Futures Game All-Star last season.
