"It feels good, I’m good to go," Dickerson said. "Actually, it feels good to get a little break before the (regular) season starts."
Dickerson came out of Saturday's game with a tight back, but it doesn't appear the injury will affect his availability for the regular season. He has hit .289/.333/.489 in 45 spring at-bats.
His exit was said to be precautionary and he should be back in action soon. Dickerson told the media that his scheduled play on Sunday is now a "maybe." He added that if this was the regular season he would have played through it.
The 25-year-old is batting .273 with twelve hits, one triple, one home run, four doubles and six RBI in 15 games played this spring.
"He's made tremendous progress since he started last year," Young said. "Left field can be a difficult experience at times, because that ball gets on you so quickly.
"So the main things we've talked about with Corey are his throwing and his footwork out there. He's got the speed, but now he's understanding how to get better jumps. That's going to be especially important on those ball into the gaps at Coors Field."
Dickerson hit .312/.364/.567 over 436 at-bats in a breakout 2014 campaign. He led the club in home runs (24) and extra-base hits (57). The 25-year-old is expected to open the year as the team's starter in left.
Dickerson had a breakout season in 2014, hitting .312/.364/.567 over 436 at-bats. He walked in 7.7 percent of his plate appearances, which was actually just above the league average. Still, the team wants Dickerson to be slightly less of a free-swinging this year.
"I talked to Corey about adding this much discipline to his game," manager Walt Weiss said. "We don't want that much, because then he wouldn't be Corey Dickerson." Weiss explained that it's difficult to deliver this type of message, as Dickerson's aggressiveness makes him effective.
Dickerson said he would work harder to study pitchers and work on his approach during games.
The 25-year-old is expected to open the year as the team's starter in left.
Colorado doesn't appear too excited to part with Dickerson, and would have to be "overwhelmed" by a deal. The 25-year-old hit .312/.364/.567 over 436 at-bats last season.
