The Blue Jays activated Dickerson (foot) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Dickerson has been out with a foot injury since June 15, at which point he was still a member of the Marlins. Now, the outfielder is available to make his debut with the Blue Jays, who traded for him June 29. Dickerson slashed .263/.324/.380 with two home runs, 12 doubles and 14 RBI in 63 games before getting hurt.
Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Dickerson (foot) is on track to return at some point during the team's four-game series with Cleveland that begins Monday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Toronto is expected to hold off on activating Dickerson ahead of the series opener, but the 32-year-old looks to be done with his minor-league rehab assignment, as he was seen taking batting practice in Toronto on Monday, according to Mitch Bannon of SI.com. During his four-game stint at Triple-A Buffalo last week, Dickerson went 4-for-15, and more importantly, incurred no setbacks with the left foot injury he suffered in mid-June. Though Dickerson had served as a near-everyday player for Miami prior to being traded June 29, he'll be relegated to a reserve role in Toronto while all of George Springer, Randal Grichuk, Teoscar Hernandez and Lourdes Gurriel are healthy.
Dickerson (foot) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
It's not yet clear how many rehab games Dickerson will require, but he could be on track return to the major-league club sometime during the first week of August. The 32-year-old has been on the injured list since June 15 due to a left foot injury, and he'll make his team debut with the Blue Jays once he's cleared to return. Dickerson has slashed .263/.324/.380 with two homers, 27 runs, 14 RBI and two stolen bases this year, and he'll likely serve as a depth option for Toronto.
Dickerson (foot) will begin a rehab assignment this week, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.
Dickerson has been out since mid-June with a left foot injury, but he's been trending in the right direction over the past week and is nearly ready for game action. Depending on when exactly his rehab begins, he should have a shot to return sometime during the first week of August. He'll likely be a bat off the bench for the Blue Jays at that point, as he's been a slightly below-average hitter since the start of the 2020 season, but he could be a useful enough fantasy option if injuries open up regular playing time.
Dickerson (foot) took part in the Blue Jays' batting-practice session prior to Monday's 13-4 loss to the Red Sox, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
The activity represents a sign of progress for Dickerson, who has yet to make his Blue Jays debut while he recovers from the left foot injury he suffered in mid-June while playing for the Marlins. Before his return from the 10-day injured list can be considered imminent, Dickerson will have to prove he can play the outfield and run the bases at full speed. Once reinstated, Dickerson will likely be limited to a depth role if all of George Springer, Randal Grichuk, Lourdes Gurriel and Teoscar Hernandez are healthy.
Dickerson (foot) no longer requires a walking boot on his left foot but remains without a timeline for his return, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The 32-year-old was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Marlins in late June, and it's unclear when he's expected to take the field for his new team. Dickerson is going through his rehab work at Toronto's spring training facility, and at this point it's difficult to see him being activated before the end of July.
The Blue Jays acquired Dickerson and pitcher Adam Cimber from the Marlins on Tuesday in exchange for infielder Joe Panik and an undisclosed minor-league pitcher, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
With Miami eager to hand regular at-bats in left field to rookie Jesus Sanchez for the remainder of the season, Dickerson -- who is set to become a free agent this offseason -- was deemed expendable. Before landing on the injured list June 15 with a left foot injury, Dickerson appeared in 63 games for Miami, slashing .263/.324/.380 with two home runs and two stolen bases across 225 plate appearances. The 32-year-old isn't expected to be back to full health until at some point after the All-Star break, but once he's ready to go, Dickerson will provide a lefty-hitting option for a Toronto outfield that currently lacks one. Even so, Dickerson will likely struggle to find steady at-bats while all of George Springer, Teoscar Hernandez, Randal Grichuk and Lourdes Gurriel are healthy.
Dickerson (foot) will be in a walking boot for three weeks before being reevaluated, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The timeline means Dickerson won't even be evaluated until the All-Star break. A clearer timeline for his recovery should emerge once that occurs, but it's clear Dickerson is facing a fairly lengthy absence.

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Pittsburgh, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson is not starting Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

The 31-year-old outfielder has hit safely in three straight games, going 4-for-11 during this week's series versus Philadelphia. He's beginning to turn things around after a recent skid that has seen his batting average drop from .329 to .295 in May. Overall, Dickerson has a .295/.368/.395 slash line with one home run, eight RBI, 20 runs scored and two stolen bases in 144 plate appearances.
