Dickerson is a candidate to be part of a leadoff platoon this coming season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "We're trying to narrow (it down),'' manager Kevin Cash said. "I don't think we have, as it stands right now, a defined leadoff guy. We're trying a couple different options. ... We're still trying to work through do we have a guy versus left and a guy versus right."
Dickerson, who's now slashing .441/.472/.647 over 34 at-bats and has led off in multiple games this spring, is a contender for the left-handed side of what could be a leadoff platoon with Tim Beckham to open the regular season. Veteran Logan Morrison is another candidate for the job from that side of the plate; however, he has a history of early-season struggles and is hitting just .200 over 10 at-bats this spring.
