Corey Dickerson resting Monday against lefty


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) A matchup against left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada has Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson out of the Monday lineup against the Cubs.

Dickerson, who is batting .250 against southpaws this season, has two hits in four of his last nine games with five runs scored in his last six. His stat line is an impressive .325/.390/.583.


Corey Dickerson stays on two-hit run Tuesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Rockies left fielder Corey Dickerson has been on a two-hit tear recently - and it continued Tuesday night. He slammed two hits in a loss to Washington.

What he had not done during that stretch was go deep. He launched a 433-foot solo homer in the fifth inning to give his team a short-lived 4-2 lead and now owns an impressive stat line of .332/.398/.584.

Dickerson has two hits in four of his last seven games.


Hitters to start in Week 17


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/20/2014) Looking for a sleeper for Fantasy Week 17 (July 21-27)? You might want to give a second look to Kurt Suzuki, Mark Teixeira, Scooter Gennett, Conor Gillaspie, Jed Lowrie and Corey Dickerson.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Corey Dickerson back in lineup Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins.

Dickerson hadn't played since Tuesday while recovering from a wrist injury. He may also be in line to see a reduction in playing time with Carlos Gonzalez back in the fold, though that may not become a big issue until Michael Cuddyer can return. Dickerson has hit .327/.392/.589 with 11 home runs, 34 RBI and six stolen bases in 202 at-bats.


Corey Dickerson sits again Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson was not in the team's starting lineup Friday against the Twins.

Dickerson is dealing with a wrist injury. It's unclear whether he's out for injury reasons, or whether the return of Carlos Gonzalez pushed Dickerson to the bench. Dickerson is hitting .327/.392/.589 over 202 at-bats. 


Corey Dickerson sits Wednesday due to wrist injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson probably wasn't going to start Wednesday vs. San Diego because a left-handed pitcher (Eric Stults) was on the mound. However, the decision became a little easier after he hurt his wrist Tuesday, according to MLB.com.

Dickerson is batting .211 (8 for 38) with one home run, two doubles, three RBI, five runs, five walks and 14 strikeouts in his last 11 games (10 starts).


Corey Dickerson smacks 11th home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 8-7 win over the Dodgers Saturday.

Dickerson's fifth-inning blast was his first home run since June 21, and he also delivered his 14th double in the game. He has hit .340/.402/.618 with 11 home runs and 34 RBI in 191 at-bats.


Corey Dickerson collects hit as defensive replacement Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) After not starting Monday's game, Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson went 1 for 2 in his team's 7-3 loss to the Nationals.

Dickerson came into the game during a double-switch in the sixth inning and remained in until the end. He was removed from Sunday's game with a leg cramp but should be good to go moving forward. Dickerson has hit .345/.404/.621 with 10 home runs, 33 RBI and five stolen bases in 177 at-bats.


Corey Dickerson sits out Monday after leaving Sunday's game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson was not in the starting lineup Monday at Washington after leaving Sunday's game due to a leg cramp. Dickerson is batting .400 with a .675 slugging percentage, 1.130 OPS, one triple, two home runs, three doubles, nine RBI and 11 runs in his last 10 games.

Corey Dickerson leaves with minor injury Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said outfielder Corey Dickerson appeared to leave Sunday's game against the Brewers with just a leg cramp, per The Denver Post.

Dickerson went 2 for 4 with one double, two RBI and two runs before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.


No doubting Corey Dickerson anymore


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/23/2014) As I recently posted to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, I labeled Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson a "sit" in last week's Start and Sit Hitters column, thinking he'd either struggle or sit in the games started by left-handers Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu to open the week. And that's exactly what happened.

But in the end, it didn't matter. He was so productive in the other four games -- not just the one started by Zack Greinke, but the three back home against the Brewers -- that he finished with 32.5 Head-to-Head points, fifth-most among outfielders. It was actually his best week so far.

There's no fighting it anymore: He's a monster. Like teammate Charlie Blackmon, he's productive enough when he plays to make up for those times he doesn't. You may opt to sit him during those weeks when the Rockies face more lefties than righties (as infrequent as they are), but he certainly needs to be owned.

With a .301 batting average, 15 home runs and a .907 OPS in 342 major league at-bats between this year and last, he's proven to be every bit as productive as he was in the minors.


Corey Dickerson slugs 10th home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson went 3 for 4 with a home run and two RBI in his team's 9-4 loss to the Brewers Saturday.

Dickerson followed up a big performance Friday that included four hits and a home run with three hits and another home run as he refuses to fade offensively while receiving extended playing time. He has hit .354/.410/.667 with 10 home runs, 29 RBI and five stolen bases in 144 at-bats.


Hitters to sit in Week 12


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/15/2014) Planning on starting Carlos Ruiz, Justin Morneau, Aaron Hill, Pablo Sandoval, Andrelton Simmons or Corey Dickerson in Fantasy Week 12 (16-22)? You may want to think twice about that.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Tuesday's start a good sign for Corey Dickerson


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Corey Dickerson went 2 for 3 with two walks, an RBI and two runs scored in a start Tuesday against the Braves. Of course, the notable part wasn't his performance, but the fact that he started.

The Rockies were facing a left-hander -- Mike Minor, specifically -- and Dickerson bats left-handed. Manager Walt Weiss loves to employ lefty-righty platoons, particularly in the outfield. Charlie Blackmon, who has performed at a near-MVP level to date, sat out this game, as he has most every time a left-hander has taken the mound even though he's batting a respectable .286 (18 for 63) against them.

So why didn't Dickerson sit? Why has he started two of the Rockies' three games against lefties since taking over for an injured Michael Cuddyer? If Weiss prefers Blackmon -- and he must to have awarded him the job over Dickerson this spring -- why does Dickerson get preferential treatment now? I don't understand!

But ultimately, my understanding of the situation is irrelevant. If it continues, Dickerson has the potential to be a significant contributor in Fantasy. Certainly in five-outfielder leagues, he's a must-add.


Corey Dickerson smacks eighth home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson went 1 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 3-1 loss to the Braves Monday.

Dickerson has been a pleasant surprise for the Rockies, and he'll continue to see regular playing time with the team dealing with multiple injuries in the outfield. He has hit .324/.380/.620 with eight home runs and 19 RBI in 108 at-bats.


Corey Dickerson tough to endorse fully


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) With Carlos Gonzalez on the DL with a finger injury, Corey Dickerson figures to get the majority of the playing time in left field, giving us all a chance to see just how legitimate his .348 batting average and 1.061 OPS are.

His minor-league numbers aren't so far off, which is why most Fantasy analysts expected him to be the Rockies' center fielder before he lost the job to Charlie Blackmon this spring (a decision that seems far less absurd now).

So all's well that ends well, right? Well, not exactly. The knock on Blackmon, after all, is that he sits most of the time vs. left-handed pitchers -- sometimes for Drew Stubbs, sometimes for Brandon Barnes -- even though he's batting .309 with an .879 OPS against them. If that's how manager Walt Weiss treats his first choice for a starting role, how do you think he'll treat Dickerson, who also bats left-handed?

Normally, I'd say an up-and-comer like Dickerson could earn more playing time based o performance, but of course, Blackmon was just about the best player in baseball for the first six weeks and is still in Platoon City.

That doesn't mean Dickerson isn't worth picking up. It just means he still has major hurdles to overcome before he's a trustworthy option in Fantasy.


Corey Dickerson clubs sixth home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson went 1 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run while serving as the designated hitter in his team's 7-6 loss to the Indians Saturday.

Dickerson has been wildly impressive in limited action this season, hitting .346/.402/.667 with six home runs, 14 RBI and two stolen bases in 81 at-bats. He's scored runs in each of his last four games while going 3 for 9 with five walks.


Corey Dickerson blasts two home runs, two doubles Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson brought his power bat to the field Saturday, going 4 for 5 with two doubles, two home runs, four RBI and three runs in his team's 11-2 win over the Reds.

Batting second, Dickerson helped open the game with back-to-back home runs in the blowout win. He played copycat again in the fourth, following up an RBI double with another RBI double. In the sixth, his two-run home run was followed by another home run one batter later. The huge performance gives Dickerson a .385/.404/.750 line with four home runs and 11 RBI in 52 at-bats.


Corey Dickerson batting better than .350 since recall


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Since his recall from the minors April 14, Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson is batting .360 (9 for 25) in 13 games (five starts). He has a .720 slugging percentage, 1.105 OPS, two home runs, three doubles, three RBI, four runs and one stolen base in that span.

Rockies recall Corey Dickerson Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) The Rockies recalled outfielder Corey Dickerson from Triple-A Colorado Springs Monday.

Dickerson is on the lineup card and available for the team's game against the Padres Monday. He's 1 for 5 with a walk, two runs and one stolen base in three games with the Rockies this season.


Corey Dickerson optioned to Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) The Rockies optioned outfielder Corey Dickerson to Triple-A Colorado Springs to make room on the roster for reliever Boone Logan (elbow), per The Denver Post. Dickerson appeared in just three games (one start), batting .200 (1 for 5) with one stolen base.

Corey Dickerson set to play center Thursday against Marlins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Walt Weiss is certainly following through with his plan to rotate center fielders early in the year. Corey Dickerson became the third Rockies player Thursday he has penned in as the starter at that position in three games.

Dickerson, who is batting leadoff against Miami, provided encouragement in exhibition play with a .344 batting average and .500 slugging percentage.


Rockies center-field situation remains a guessing game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) It appears Rockies manager Walt Weiss has a plan to rotate his options in center field to start the season.

After Charlie Blackmon drew the start in center during Monday's season opener, Drew Stubbs was in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins, despite a right-handed pitcher being on the hill. Corey Dickerson, who is also in the mix in center field, did not make an appearance in Monday's season opener.


Can Charlie Blackmon stave off Corey Dickerson?


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(3/31/2014) The Rockies' center field and leadoff jobs are not likely to get locked down after just one game, but by giving those responsibilities to Charlie Blackmon in the season opener, manager Walt Weiss has given him the first shot to prove himself worthy of an everyday role.

Blackmon just may be better suited to the leadoff role than rival Corey Dickerson. In the minors, he was more proficient at drawing walks and stealing bases. Then again, Blackmon has piled up 481 major league plate appearances over the last three years, and he has just 13 stolen bases and 14 walks to show for it. He does own a .291 batting average, but he owes much of that to the otherworldly 31 percent line drive rate he posted in 2013.

Should everything break right for Blackmon -- a return to more prolific walks and steals along with a sustained high line drive rate -- he could produce enough to keep his job. He would also have a high enough batting average and run total to justify ownership in mixed leagues. I'm skeptical that this will happen, and Dickerson has enough power to wrest playing time from Blackmon in due time, even if he is not the best fit for the leadoff spot.


Rockies manager praises Corey Dickerson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The praise continues to pour in for Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson, who will be competing for a starting spot in the outfield this spring.

"He's a pure hitter, and he plays with an edge that his teammates like, and I know I like," manager Walt Weiss said, per The Denver Post. "He's a young kid, but he's one of those young guys who is unflappable. The situation is never too big for him."

With Carlos Gonzalez staying in left field and Michael Cuddyer in right field, Dickerson's best chance for at-bats will come in center field. Although he doesn't have much experience playing in center, Weiss feels confident he can handle playing the position.

"Even in center field, I kind of fed him to the wolves out there, and he hadn't played center in a long time, I thought he handled it very well," Weiss said of Dickerson playing 15 games in center field last season. "He's worked on his throwing, and everyone that's seen him so far says he's throwing much better. He's a worker who works at every aspect of his game. He's a guy that takes pride in his defense."
