June 2015 cover

Joc Pederson has been embraced by his Dodger teammates as quickly as he has taken the National League by storm.

Pederson, who has a higher OPS at this stage of the campaign than any previous Dodger Rookie of the Year Award winner, is featured on the cover of the June 2015 issue of Dodger Insider magazine, which once again offers more than two dozen stories, plus games and photos galore.

Andre Ethier’s comeback season is also explored in this month’s issue, which includes something truly unique: a special player-behind-the-camera showcase of second baseman Howie Kendrick’s photography.

But wait, there’s more: We also look back at the Dodgers’ 50-year history in the MLB draft with a package that spotlights not only Dodger broadcaster Rick Monday (MLB’s first-ever amateur draft selection) but also the little-known saga of the Dodgers’ inaugural draft pick, Bakersfield High infielder John Wyatt.

The June 2015 Dodger Insider magazine is available at all Dodger team stores. To subscribe, visit dodgers.com/magazine. Orders taken through June 11 will begin with the July issue.
