WATCH: Joc Pederson blasts his sixth homer of spring


by - Senior Editor -

Cubs outfielder Joc Pederson has been impressive this spring.

Pederson smacked a two-run homer to right field to put the Cubs up 2-0 in the first inning of Friday's game against the Giants.

It was his sixth homer of the spring, and he is batting a sizzling .359.

Rizzo was mic'd up during the telecast and predicted that Pederson would see a fastball on the home run pitch.

"I'm calling fastball here," he said.

Check out Pederson's dinger below:
