Joc Pederson makes coffee run for teammates

While it is an awful lot of fun, the life of an MLB rookie isn't as glamorous as you might think. The hours are long, there's a lot of travel involved, the uniform requirements can get pretty ridiculous, guys troll you left and right and then, when you get through all of that, you're expected to fetch coffee for the older guys.

Joc Pederson knows this all too well. The 22-year-old outfielder is still getting used to life at the big league level. He's got 12 games, 18 at-bats and three hits under his belt, but he's really got that coffee thing down to a science already.

If he ends up being half as good at driving in runs as he is at balancing those beverage carriers, he'll be running the whole show by next year's All-Star Game.
