Dickerson agreed to a one-year, $925,000 deal with the Giants on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The two sides avoid arbitration with the deal. Dickerson rebounded from two seasons lost completely to injury, appearing in 68 games for the Padres and Giants last season. He hit quite well in his 56 games with San Francisco, posting a .290/.351/.529 slash line. If he can remain healthy this season, he'll factor into the mix in the outfield corners.
Dickerson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Dickerson will conclude the season with back-to-back absences from the lineup while the Dodgers roll out another left-handed starting pitcher (Rich Hill). After losing much of the past two seasons to injury, Dickerson proved he still had something left in the tank while he was up with the big club in 2019, slashing .279/.335/.494 (115 wRC+) across 188 plate appearances. The 29-year-old's solid offensive showing could put him in position to open 2020 in a large-side platoon role in the corner outfield.
Dickerson will hit the bench Saturday against the Dodgers.
Dickerson sits against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu. Joey Rickard gets the start in left field.
Dickerson is not in the lineup Thursday against the Rockies.
Joey Rickard is starting in left field in place of Dickerson with left-hander Kyle Freeland starting for the Rockies. Since returning from an oblique injury earlier in the month, Dickerson has appeared in six games and gone 2-for-12 (.167).
Dickerson is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, according to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Dickerson started in left field the last two times the Giants faced right-handed starters, but the team is facing a left-hander Sunday for the third time in four games, and Joey Rickard has gotten the start in left in all three of those instances.
Dickerson is not in Thursday's lineup against the Red Sox.
He is 2-for-25 with zero home runs, one walk and nine strikeouts in his last 10 games. Austin Slater will start in right field against lefty Eduardo Rodriguez.
Dickerson (oblique) started in left field and went 1-for-4 in Wednesday's 11-3 win over the Red Sox.
Dickerson made his first start since Sept. 3 due to an ongoing battle with back issues. The 29-year-old was removed for a pinch runner in the eighth inning, but that appeared to be a strategic maneuver with no reports of any health setbacks. There is a strong chance Dickerson gets rested for Thursday's series finale in Boston with a southpaw scheduled to take the bump. In fact, three of the Giants' next four projected opposing starters are of the left-handed variety, so fantasy owners in need of volume in the closing moments of the season may want to explore other options in the short term.
Dickerson (oblique) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, according to Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News.
Dickerson has not started a game since Sept. 3 because of his oblique injury, but he is ready to get back in the lineup after pinch hitting in the Giants' last two games. Dickerson will man left field and hit cleanup Wednesday night.
Dickerson (oblique) came off the bench to provide a sacrifice fly in his lone plate appearance against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
Dickerson was held out of the starting lineup again despite serving as a pinch hitter in Sunday's contest and getting extra rest on the team's off day Monday. The back-to-back pinch-hit appearances could indicate that the 29-year-old is inching closer to playing a full nine, but everyday playing time may be out of the question with only two weeks left in the regular season and the Giants all but eliminated from playoff contention. Dickerson has slashed .288/.345/.523 (168 plate appearances) when healthy this year.
Dickerson (oblique) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Boston, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Dickerson has been nursing an oblique injury, and even though he was able to pinch hit in Sunday's series finale against Miami, he's not ready to return to the starting nine just yet. Austin Slater draws the start in right field and will bat eighth.
Dickerson (oblique) is scheduled to take live batting practice Friday and could return to the starting lineup Tuesday against Boston, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Dickerson appears to be nearing a return to action, though a more concrete timetable for his return should emerge following Friday's activities.
Dickerson (oblique) isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
San Francisco was optimistic that Dickerson would be ready to play by the weekend, but he'll be held out again Friday. There hasn't been another update on his status yet, so he'll be considered day-to-day moving forward. Dickerson received a cortisone shot Saturday.
The Giants hope Dickerson (oblique) will rejoin the lineup by this weekend, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Dickerson has apparently progressed nicely since receiving a cortisone injection Saturday and is on the cusp of his return. The 29-year-old hasn't seen game action since Sept. 3 due to the oblique issue.
Dickerson (oblique) flew back to San Francisco for a cortisone shot Saturday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
An oblique issue has kept Dickerson out of action since Tuesday. His return timeline should become clearer once the team sees how the injury responds to the shot.
Dickerson (oblique) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Dickerson was unavailable Thursday and later told Kerry Crowley of the Mercury News, "It hasn't felt right since I came back (from the injured list)." While Dickerson seems to think he could return during next week's homestand, the Giants are reportedly unsure when Dickerson will be able to play again. Austin Slater is making his second straight start in the outfield after Jaylin Davis made back-to-back starts earlier in the week.
Dickerson (oblique) remains on the bench Friday against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Dickerson has been dealing with a sore oblique, though it's not clear whether that's the reason for his absence Friday. He likely would be sitting even if healthy against lefty Clayton Kershaw, especially because Jaylin Davis appears to be moving ahead of him on the depth chart, though it's Austin Slater who starts in right field on this occasion.
Dickerson (oblique), who is not in Thursday's lineup against the Cardinals, could lose out on playing time over the rest of the season following the promotion of Jaylin Davis.
The 29-year-old has been a productive hitter this season with the Giants, hitting .308/.374/.579 with six home runs in 46 games, but he is not a great defender. Davis, on the other hand, is only 25 years old and has more long-term upside. While Davis hits right-handed, it seems unlikely that the Giants would have called him up this month if they only intended on giving him starts against lefties, and indeed, he is starting in right field against a righty in Thursday's game. It's also worth noting that Dickerson's oblique is still bothering him, per Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News. The outfielder said he hasn't felt right since returning from the injured list in August, though a recent MRI came back clean.
Dickerson is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.
Dickerson's absence is notable because he will be held out against a right-handed starter for just the second time since returning from the injured list Aug. 16. Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle noted that Dickerson did not look comfortable during any of his at-bats in Tuesday's contest, so he may still be dealing with the effects of the oblique injury that landed him on the injured list in the first place. The Giants have not commented on Dickerson's health of late, but if he is indeed not 100 percent, that could mean more playing time for Jaylin Davis and Austin Slater the rest of the way.
Dickerson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against San Diego, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Dickerson finds himself on the bench for the second straight contest with southpaw Eric Lauer taking the mound for the Friars. Joey Rickard will start in left field and bat fifth.
Dickerson is not starting Saturday against the Padres.
Dickerson hits the bench with left-hander Joey Lucchesi starting for the Padres. Joey Rickard is starting in left field and hitting sixth in his place in Dickerson's place.
