Giants' Alex Dickerson: Doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 2-for-5 with a double and a pair of runs scored while batting cleanup in Wednesday's 12-11 loss to the Cubs.

Dickerson returned to the lineup after being situated on the bench for the Giants' last two contests. The 29-year-old responded with his first multi-hit game since being activated from the injured list Aug. 14. Dickerson has started just three of seven contests since returning, and while a couple of those absences can be attributed to platooning, it is apparent that the club is treating the outfielder with kid gloves in an effort to not aggravate his back. That said, we could see him back in the starting nine against the right-handed Kyle Hendricks on Friday with a rare off day following Thursday's series finale in Chicago.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is not in Sunday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

He sits despite the fact the Giants are facing a righty (Merrill Kelly). Austin Slater will start in right field while Mike Yastrzemski shifts to left. Per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, manager Bruce Bochy categorized Dickerson's absence from the lineup as a planned off day, likely due in part to the fact that the 29-year-old recently shook off an oblique injury.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Sitting again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is not in the lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson was reinstated from the injured list Wednesday, but he'll have to wait another day to make his return to the starting lineup as the Giants are stacking righties against southpaw Alex Young on Thursday. Austin Slater is starting in right field in this one.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Dickerson is back with the Giants after spending two weeks on the shelf with an oblique injury. The outfielder went 0-for-3 with a walk in his lone rehab appearance for Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday before being cleared to return. Pablo Sandoval (shoulder) was sent to the injured list to make room on the roster for Dickerson, who is sitting in favor of Austin Slater on Wednesday.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Set for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson (oblique) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson won't return from the 10-day injured list when first eligible Sunday, but it appears he won't be sidelined too much beyond the minimum. The 29-year-old landed on the shelf with the right oblique strain Aug. 1, so he should only require a couple games in the minors to get back up to speed.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Won't return after minimum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson (oblique) won't return when first eligible Sunday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Dickerson was originally expected to require just a minimum-length stay on the injured list after straining his oblique at the end of July. He's now a bit behind that timeline. He may also require a brief rehab assignment before returning to action, further delaying his return date.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Brief absence expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson's right oblique strain is considered mild, leaving the Giants optimistic he'll be ready to return from the 10-day injured list when first eligible Aug. 10, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Dickerson attributed the oblique injury to compensating for the pain he had already experienced after developing back spasms on his left side in mid-July. Despite being at well below optimal health for over two weeks, Dickerson had still delivered a .415/.455/.756 slash line since the All-Star break, which made the Giants reluctant to shut him down. Now that Dickerson will get a chance to heal up, he'll likely be able to avoid a setback that may have cost him more significant time. His absence through next weekend should open up a spot in the everyday lineup for Austin Slater.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Shelved with oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right oblique strain, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

The Giants had previously termed the issue that prevented Dickerson from playing Wednesday against the Phillies as a side issue, but an MRI provided more clarity on the injury. While the extent of the oblique injury isn't fully known, even Grade 1 strains can sideline players for more than 10 days, so Dickerson won't necessarily be in line for a minimum-length stay on the IL. The setback is disappointing for a player who was instrumental to the Giants' climb up the wild-card standings in recent weeks, as Dickerson had submitted a 1.222 OPS in his 30 games with the club.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Receives MRI for side issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to a side injury and underwent an MRI, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The results of Dickerson's MRI are not yet known, but a trip to the injured list is apparently being considered. Austin Slater, Tyler Austin and the newly acquired Scooter Gennett could all see increased outfield chances if a trip to the shelf is necessary.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Phillies, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

The reason behind Dickerson's removal from the lineup is not yet known. Austin Slater is starting in the outfield in his place.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Benched against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson will head to the bench for Tuesday's game against the White Sox, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Dickerson will take a seat with a lefty slated to toss for Chicago in the series opener. As a result, Mike Yastrzemski is set to man left field, allowing Austin Slater to draw the start in right.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Contributes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 7-6 win over San Diego.

Dickerson was situated on the bench against left-handed opener Adrian Morejon, but the slugger was immediately inserted into the game as soon as a righty took the bump. The 29-year-old has started just four of the Giants' last 10 contests despite carrying a gaudy .349/.405/.670 slash line this season. Half of those absences were against left-handed starters, but the other three came against righties. Part of that can be attributed to a crowded outfield with plenty of currently hot bats, but it may also be an effort to rest the slugger after he tweaked his surgically repaired back two weeks ago. Whatever the case, Dickerson is a rare case where his tremendous offensive output keeps him fantasy-relevant in a semi-regular role.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at San Diego, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Dickerson finds himself back on the bench Sunday with the Friars sending a left-hander to the mound in Adrian Morejon. The 29-year-old has a 1.207 OPS with eight extra-base hits in 12 games since the All-Star break. Austin Slater starts in right field for the Giants, shifting Mike Yastrzemski to left.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Benched vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Padres, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Dickerson will head to the bench with a southpaw slated to pitch for San Diego. Tyler Austin is set to man left field and bat seventh with Dickerson out of the mix.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs.

Dickerson is hitting .455 with two home runs and just five strikeouts over his last 10 games (33 at-bats). Mike Yastrzemski will start in left field and hit sixth.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Swats sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 2-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 5-4 extra-innings win over the Cubs.

After sitting out two games with some mild tightness in his oblique, Dickerson returned to action and looked to be 100 percent. He's now slashing .351/.406/.691 through 37 games with six homers and 24 RBI.

July 23, 2019 05:56 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Ready to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson (oblique) is starting in left field and batting fourth Tuesday against the Cubs.

Dickerson was held out of Monday's matchup due to tightness in his right oblique, but he'll be right back in the starting nine for the second game of the series. He's hitting .522 with a home run and six RBI over his last seven contests.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Battling oblique tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is out of Monday's lineup against the Cubs due to right oblique tightness, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Dickerson insisted that the injury isn't anything significant, and he also noted that he'll be available off the bench Monday evening. He expects to be back in the starting nine for Tuesday's clash, but his status will certainly be worth keeping an eye on moving forward.

July 22, 2019 06:00 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Sitting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson sits for the second game in a row Monday against the Cubs.

Dickerson and Austin Slater had been alternating starts in the outfield corners over the last eight games, with Mike Yastrzemski starting for whichever of them was on the bench. Slater starts for the second game in a row in right field Monday, with Yastrzemski in left.
