Dickerson (back) was cleared to resume running Friday, the Associated Press reports.

Dickerson had previously been doing some cardio work on machines, so this represents another step forward as he inches closer to full baseball activities. Manager Andy Green previously suggested that Dickerson could be back in action by mid June, though the Padres likely won't be able to pinpoint a specific date until he starts up a rehab assignment.
