Latest Update Dickerson not in Rockies lineup on Saturday Sat Jul, 26, 04:36 PM
With a beautiful left-handed stroke and the ability to produce consistent line drives off his bat, he can flat out hit. He also features a pretty good batting eye and is a good base-runner.
Flaws: : Doesn't possess a great outfield arm and isn't particularly athletic. He therefore profiles as strictly a left-fielder. Also, he doesn't hit for above-average home-run power.
Dickerson hits right handers much better than southpaws, and with Jeff Locke on the mound for the Pirates Saturday, he gets to take a seat on the bench with Charlie Blackmon in left and Drew Stubbs starting in center.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Like most Rockies hitters Dickerson rakes when playing at Coors hitting .372 with seven home runs and 23 RBI. On the season Dickerson is hitting .336 with 12 home runs and 38 RBI.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Dickerson had his fourth multi-hit performance in his last seven games but it was his first home run on 10 and just his second of the month. The three-man rotation of him, Charlie Blackmon and Drew Stubbs seems to be working just fine for now, but beware of when Michael Cuddyer comes back and there are fewer at-bats to go around. of course, the Rockies could still be big sellers on the trade front and that could certainly open this up for more plying time.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Pirates are throwing southpaw Jeff Locke Sunday so manager Walt Weiss will go with his right-handed outfield configuration and go with Brandon Barnes over in left field with Drew Stubbs in center.Analyst: Howard Bender
