Joc Pederson

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA - MAY 6: San Francisco Giants' Joc Pederson (23) blows a bubble while in the dugout before their MLB game at Oracle Park in San Francisco, Calif., on Friday, May 6, 2022. (Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group)

Joc Pederson's headache continued into Friday, which, after slamming into the left-field wall one night before, was enough for the San Francisco Giants to place Pederson on the seven-day concussion IL.

In addition, Pederson has had one previous concussion, incurring one in a collision with then-Dodgers Yasiel Puig. So while he was feeling better, there was no reason to take any chances with a head injury.
