A young athlete with professional bloodlines, present tools and a football approach to the game, Pederson is a favorite among Northern California scouts. See him on the right day and you are seeing a borderline five-tool high school prospect, though the ceiling is basically average across the board. Pederson hits and throws lefthanded, has an average arm, above-average range, runs a bit above-average down the line, has plenty of bat speed, and at times shows projectable average raw power. He tends to tinker a lot with his swing and approach, which gets in the way of him just going out and trusting his tools. Pederson was a talented high school football player and brings that type of toughness to the ball field, and if he were from the Midwest or Northeast he might be even higher on draft lists because as a multi-sport athlete he would be seen as having tremendous baseball upside. Just because he lives in California doesn't mean the same projection shouldn't apply. He has committed to Southern California, where his father Stu also played before moving onto the professional level.
