Dickerson will undergo back surgery next week and will need 3-4 months to recover, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports Monday.
Dickerson spent all season rehabbing his back, and after a second setback in recovery, he has opted to undergo surgery. Even if Dickerson recovers before the end of the season, his lack of at-bats all season long means we almost certainly won't see him in the majors in 2017.
Dickerson suffered another setback in his rehab and is scheduled to meet with a specialist about his injured back, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Dickerson has been rehabbing his injured back all season, but suffered a setback in early June and was ultimately shut down. The 27-year-old recently resumed his rehab program but unfortunately suffered another setback Tuesday. His outlook for the remainder of the 2017 campaign appears to be bleak, as manager Andy Green went so far as to say that he feels it's "increasingly unlikely" that Dickerson will return this season, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. The outfielder could elect for surgery which would likely sideline him for an extensive amount of time.
Dickerson (back) experienced upper-back soreness following a batting practice session and will be shut down for the time being, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Dickerson has been on the disabled list all season with a protruding disc in his back. He had been progressing well in his rehab and was expected to begin an extended spring training assignment this weekend, but will now be shut down for an undetermined amount of time due to this unfortunate batting practice setback. An exact timetable for his return still remains unclear.
Dickerson (back) is hoping to get at-bats as a designated hitter in extended spring training games this weekend, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
He has been out all season with a disc protrusion in his back, but could begin a rehab assignment around June 10. The Padres have a couple other outfielders (Manuel Margot and Travis Jankowski) working their way back from injuries, so it is unclear what kind of playing time will be available once everyone comes off the DL. Cory Spangenberg and Franchy Cordero are currently handling most of the work in left field and center field, respectively.
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.
