Giants' Alex Dickerson: Homers as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson (elbow) hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

Dickerson was held out of the starting lineup after being hit by a pitch on his right elbow Monday, though the decision to rest him may have had as much to do with the Rockies starting a southpaw. Dickerson was clearly feeling well enough to swing a bat, as he launched a 409-foot homer to center field in the seventh inning. The 30-year-old has been a big part of the Giants' success this season, slashing .295/.373/.591 with 10 home runs and 27 RBI.

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

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

The 30-year-old had X-rays on his right elbow come back negative after being hit by a pitch Monday, but he'll remain on the bench with southpaw Kyle Freeland pitching for Colorado. According to Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area, Dickerson checked out fine despite the bruise and is available off the bench Tuesday. Darin Ruf will bat cleanup and start in left field for the Giants.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: X-rays on elbow return negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson underwent postgame X-rays on his right elbow after he was struck by a pitch in the ninth inning of Monday's 7-2 loss to the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The X-rays returned negative, so Dickerson looks like he'll be good to go for Tuesday's game. However, with a lefty (Kyle Freeland) on the bump for Colorado, the lefty-hitting Dickerson could be a candidate to get the night off. Dickerson was making his return from the paternity list Monday and was the Giants' most productive hitter in the loss, reaching base four times while supplying a solo home run and his seventh double of the season.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Launches ninth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Monday's 7-2 loss to the Rockies.

After being activated from the paternity list earlier in the day, Dickerson showed off some new-dad power, accounting for half of the Giants' hits in the contest. His biggest was a seventh-inning blast off reliever Carlos Estevez. Dickerson is up to nine homers, 26 RBI, 23 runs scored and a .290/.365/.565 slash line in 45 contests.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Reinstated from paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson was reinstated from the paternity list and is starting Monday against the Rockies, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Marisnick spent just two days on the paternity list, and he'll return to the Giants' active roster as the team competes for a spot in the postseason over the final week of the regular season. He's leading off and starting in left field Monday.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Could return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Dickerson (personal) could be activated from the paternity list ahead of Monday's game against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

While Kapler said he expects Dickerson to be reinstated to the active roster, the skipper acknowledged he hadn't heard if the outfielder's wife gave birth yet. At any rate, Dickerson should be back with the Giants at some point during the four-game series with Colorado, which will leave fewer at-bats available for Darin Ruf, who has started each of the past four contests.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Away on paternity leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson was placed on the paternity list Saturday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Players typically spend three days on paternity leave, though pandemic-related protocols could delay that slightly this season. Austin Slater and Darin Ruf should see more at-bats during his absence, while utility man Daniel Robertson was called up to give the team an extra bat on the bench.

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

Dickerson is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Rattles off three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs scored in Wednesday's 9-3 win over the Mariners.

Dickerson hit a leadoff double in the third inning and came around to score on a Brandon Belt homer. In the fourth, Dickerson plated Mike Yastrzemski with a single and later scored his second run of the game on a passed ball. In his previous seven games, Dickerson was just 3-for-14 with a homer and two RBI. He now has eight homers, 24 RBI, 22 runs scored and a .279 batting average in 42 contests.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Starting Tuesday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson (knee) is starting in left field and batting second Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

The 30-year-old exited Monday's contest after fouling a pitch off his right knee, but he won't miss a game after X-rays came back negative Tuesday. Dickerson is 13-for-29 with four homers, four doubles, 10 runs and nine RBI in his past eight games.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: X-rays come back clean
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson's (knee) X-ray came back negative Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Dickerson exited Monday's game in the fourth inning after fouling a pitch off his right knee. However, it appears that he avoided serious injury, as the team is calling the injury a contusion. If Dickerson is held out of Tuesday's contest -- or beyond -- Darin Ruf and/or Austin Slater could see an uptick in playing time.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Exits Monday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson fouled a ball off his knee and exited Monday's contest against the Diamondbacks, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson took a big cut at the plate and fouled a ball directly off his right knee, forcing his departure in the fourth inning. He was replaced by Darin Ruf.

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

Dickerson will sit against lefty Madison Bumgarner and the Diamondbacks on Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Dickerson is hitting .542 with four homers in a stretch of five straight multi-hit games, but even that level of performance isn't enough for him to avoid getting platooned in this one. Darin Ruf starts in left field in his absence.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Keeps hitting streak alive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's loss against the Diamondbacks.

Dickerson has now recorded two or more hits in each of his last five contests, knocking at least one double in three straight games. He seems to have received a confidence boost after his three-homer performance on Sept. 1 and is hitting .542 during the aforementioned five-game stretch. He's slashing a career-best .277/.351/.554 on the season.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Historic effort in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 5-for-6 with three home runs, two doubles, five runs scored, six RBI and a walk in Tuesday's 23-5 destruction of the Rockies.

Dickerson entered the contest with four home runs in 97 plate appearances. He nearly doubled that total with Tuesday's momentous performance, falling a few feet short of tying the big-league record of four homers in a game when he crushed a 414-foot double in his final at-bat. Among multiple historic footnotes, Dickerson tied Willie Mays' franchise record of 16 total bases in one game and became the 15th major-leaguer in history to collect five extra-base hits in a contest. He also joined Kris Bryant and Matt Carpenter as the only big-leaguers to total three home runs and two doubles in one game. Finally, the five-hit game raised Dickerson's season average a full 40 points, from .221 to .261.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Goes yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI single in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Dickerson opened the scoring with his long ball off Diamondbacks starter Taylor Clarke in the first inning. In the eighth, Dickerson restored the Giants' lead by plating Brandon Crawford with a bases-loaded single. He then exited the contest for a pinch runner. The 30-year-old Dickerson is slashing .221/.299/.395 with four homers, 14 RBI and 11 runs scored through 30 games this season. He'll likely continue to see playing time on the strong side of a platoon with Darin Ruf in left field.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Draws rare start vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is in the starting lineup for Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, batting sixth and playing left field.

Dickerson sat Game 1 with the Giants going up against Clayton Kershaw, but he's back in the fold for Game 2. The Dodgers are going with lefty Caleb Ferguson, but Giants manager Gabe Kapler is likely banking on it being a short start for the southpaw.
