Joc Pederson gets his wish — practice with the Rams

Remember when Joc Pederson asked the Rams for a tryout not too long ago on Twitter? The saying goes, “Ask and you shall receive,” and the Dodgers outfielder got his wish.

The former Palo Alto High School baseball and football star along with teammate Micah Johnson were invited to a Rams practice earlier in the week. The two caught passes from the newly named starter quarterback, Jared Goff.

Pederson took on the Jugs machine too.

It looked like playing outfield in baseball has helped his transition to the football field.

Goff is making his debut Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Maybe Pederson will make his debut as well, as wide receiver. That’s if the Dodgers give the green light on that one.
