After signing Gerardo Parra, the Rockies were expected to move one of their outfielders for some pitching, and that's exactly what they did. Dickerson was sent to the Rays with a minor league pitcher in exchange for relief pitcher Jake McGee and a minor league pitcher. This move could impact the 26-year-old in a few ways, most notably being that he won't be hitting in hitter-friendly Coors Field any longer. The concerns over Dickerson's plantar fasciitis may increase slightly, given that the turf in Tropicana Field isn't the most forgiving surface in the league. Those issues aside, the Rays are getting a solid left-handed hitter, even if his .249/.286/.410 career road slash line may suggest otherwise. There are other factors at play when looking at a Rockies hitter's home/road splits, and Dickerson should still be a worthwhile option in standard leagues after the trade, especially considering he will hit in the middle of the Rays lineup, but his value is undoubtedly lessened by this move.
Colorado Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson finished the 2015 season in style Sunday, hitting a three-run homer in the Rockies' win over the San Francisco Giants .
After a breakout 2014 campaign, repeated bouts with plantar fasciitis along with a case of broken ribs limited Dickerson to just 65 games this season. Even so, there's plenty of reason to be optimistic for Dickerson's prospects heading into the upcoming season.
In his 224 at-bats in 2015, Dickerson still finished with a .304 average and .869 OPS, marks highly comparable to what he posted in those categories in 2014. With a little better luck on the health front, Dickerson shouldn't have trouble reaching the 20-homer plateau while making a run at 100 RBI.
Dickerson has missed much of 2015 with foot and rib injuries, but has been highly productive when healthy. Since returning to the lineup on Sept. 8, Dickerson has hit .333 with three homers, eight RBI and eight runs. Given his health issues, he may be available in some leagues and could be worth a late-season pickup.
Dickerson hasn't missed a beat since returning from the disabled list Sept. 8, as he's slashed a respectable .282/.333/.538 over his last 13 games.
The Rockies have been giving him more frequent days off in September than earlier in the year, but it's hard to fault the team for their reluctance to use him given how banged up he's been throughout the season.
With a full offseason to recover from the plantar fasciitis issue that has dogged him throughout the season, Dickerson should enter spring training at full health.
This should be considered a regular day-off, and he is listed as available to pinch-hit against the Dodgers. Kyle Parker will replace him in left field.
