Dickerson is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals. Dickerson, who is hitting .250/.289/.361 with five RBI and a stolen base in 10 games this month, will retreat to the bench with a southpaw in Eric Skoglund toeing the rubber for the opposition. Pablo Reyes and Jordan Luplow will cover the corner outfield spots in this one.
Dickerson went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored and one RBI in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Brewers. Dickerson accounted for three of the Pirates' five hits on the afternoon, as well as having a role in all three runs scored. It's been a rough second half for the 29-year-old as he hasn't homered since mid-July and dropped his OPS from .868 to .780 since the start of August.
Dickerson is out of the lineup against the Brewers on Friday. With left-hander Gio Gonzalez on the mound for Milwaukee, Dickerson will retreat to the bench for the series opener. In his absence, Jordan Luplow will start in right field and bat third.
Dickerson is out of the lineup against the Cardinals on Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. The 29-year-old will receive a standard day off following a two-hit performance in Tuesday's loss. Jordan Luplow will roam right field in his absence.
Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals. Dickerson slashed an RBI single in the fourth inning and got another RBI when he hit a double -- his 29th of the year -- in the ninth. Dickerson recorded a hit for the fourth straight game but he's hitting only .167 with three RBI over his last 15 games.

He's currently hitting .291 with 11 home runs, 49 RBI and eight stolen bases on the year.
