When top prospects collide

Dodgers media and fans got to see a glimpse of the future when 18-year-old pitcher Julio Urias squared off with 22-year-old outfielder Joc Pederson in live batting practice.

Sandy Koufax, Mark McGwire, Rick Honeycutt and Farhan Zaidi were all there to watch, along with a healthy collection of media members.

What happened? You can see for yourself below, but in short, edge to Urias.

Later in the clubhouse, Pederson said simply: “He’s 18 and throwing 96. That’s … not normal.”
