Liriano played 12 games in the Cactus League this spring, going 4 for 17 with one double and one home run. Dickerson saw just eight games of action, going 3 for 14 with one double and one triple.
The team also re-assigned outfielder
Dickerson suffered an ankle sprain last spring, and the subsequent MRI revealed a hole in his left heel that would have jeopardized his career had it shattered. After undergoing surgery, the outfielder was able to return to the field in mid-July and hit .321/.367/.496 with three home runs and 24 RBI in 137 at-bats with Double-A San Antonio.
"My leg was still really weak at that point," Dickerson said. "I was supposed to miss the whole season, but I made a conscious effort to try to get on the field. I knew structurally I’d be alright. I could push myself. The one thing that was lagging behind was leg strength, which I lost to atrophy because of lying in bed for a month in a half."
Dickerson played exclusively in right field with San Antonio but did work as a first baseman in 2011 and 2012. He's rotating through both corner-outfield spots as well as first base.
"I honestly think I’m in better shape, baseball-wise, than I was at this point last year," Dickerson said.
The team purchased the contracts of Tayron Guerrero,
