ALBUQUERQUE -- Isotopes outfielder Joc Pederson on Saturday became the first 30-30 player in the Pacific Coast League in 80 years. On Monday, he was voted to the 2014 All-PCL team by league field managers and media representatives.

Pederson, 22, was the only member of the Isotopes voted to the team.

Pederson is hitting .300/.432/.580 with 32 home runs, 30 stolen bases, 99 runs scored and 95 walks in 116 games. He leads the league in OPS (1.012), on-base percentage, total bases (247), home runs, runs scored and walks, and is third in slugging percentage.

With his 30th steal of the season on Saturday Pederson joined Frank Demaree (1934), Lefty O'Doul (1927) and Tony Lazzeri (1925) as the only 30-30 players in PCL history.

The Isotopes have seven games remaining in their season, which ends on Sept. 1. Pederson, who isn't currently on the Dodgers 40-man roster, is expected to be called up once roster limits expand next week, but likely won't get much playing time.

"I'll use him like any other guy who comes up," manager Don Mattingly said on Saturday. "I don't really plan on throwing him out there. It's a good experience. It will be good for him."
