Dickerson (calf) had his rehab assignment paused Friday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Dickerson resumed his rehab assignment Tuesday, but he's still dealing with a calf injury and is being examined further by the team's medical staff. Although he took batting practice Friday, it's not yet clear when he'll be able to head back to Triple-A Memphis to resume his rehab stint.
Dickerson (calf) went 2-for-2 with a double for Triple-A Memphis in its game Tuesday versus Indianapolis. Dickerson's rehab assignment hit a setback over the weekend in the form of renewed soreness in his strained left calf, but he was only out for a couple of days. The veteran outfielder will likely need a few more rehab games, including potentially a start or two in the field, before he'd be ready to be activated from the 10-day injured list.
Dickerson is experiencing renewed soreness in his strained left calf, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Dickerson went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI for Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, but the recurring soreness in his calf kept him out of the lineup over the weekend. Goold reports that the outfielder will try to resume his rehab Tuesday, but he'll likely need multiple appearances to prove his health and get his timing back at the plate. As such, it seems unlikely he'll be back during the upcoming four-game road series versus the Brewers.
Dickerson (calf) will report to Triple-A Memphis to begin a rehab assignment Thursday. Dickerson has been sidelined since exiting a June 4 game against the Cubs with a left calf strain. He had been starting to see more frequent starts as a designated hitter and corner outfielder prior to getting hurt, but Dickerson will likely have to settle for a lesser role once he's healthy. Since Dickerson was deactivated, the Cardinals have returned Tyler O'Neill and Dylan Carlson from the 10-day injured list, while rookies Nolan Gorman and Brendan Donovan have established themselves as everyday players.
Dickerson (calf) said Tuesday that he's hopeful to begin a minor-league rehab assignment next week, if not sooner, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Dickerson's comments came after he took part in straight-line running on the field for the second day in a row. The 33-year-old has also been taking batting practice of late, but running the curves of the basepaths and showing he can change direction in the outfield may be the final hurdles he needs to clear in his recovery from a left calf strain before the Cardinals send him out on a rehab assignment. With both Tyler O'Neill and Dylan Carlson beating him back from the 10-day injured list, Dickerson will likely have to settle for a reserve role once he's activated.
