Outfielder Joc Pederson, the Dodgers' No. 2 prospect, left Triple-A Albuquerque's game at Iowa on Tuesday in the first inning with a right shoulder injury.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly couldn't give reporters a diagnosis, but said he was told it wasn't anything major. He said Pederson returned to Albuquerque after the game and would see a doctor on Wednesday.

Pederson was removed after attempting a diving catch while playing center field in the bottom of the first inning.

The 22-year-old Pederson is hitting .319 with 17 homers, 42 RBIs and an OPS of 1.005.
