Dickerson was placed on the 10-day injured list with a shoulder bone bruise Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Dickerson had missed the last two games with a shoulder issue, and he'll now miss additional time after he was diagnosed with a bone bruise. Jarlin Garcia (groin) and Mike Yastrzemski (oblique) were reinstated from the injured list. It's not yet clear when Dickerson will be able to return, but Darin Ruf is starting in left field and batting fourth Friday, and he should see an uptick in playing time while Dickerson is sidelined.
Dickerson (shoulder) isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Dickerson is dealing with shoulder soreness that also forced him to sit out the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader. Jason Vosler will start in left field and bat seventh. For what it's worth, manager Gabe Kapler doesn't believe Dickerson's injury is a major one, with the skipper noting that he has "optimism" that the 30-year-old may be available off the bench for the series finale in Colorado on Wednesday, according to Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco.
Dickerson was removed from Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies and isn't starting Game 2, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 30-year-old went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored before exiting the matinee. Dickerson should be considered day-to-day, while Mike Tauchman, Steven Duggar and Austin Slater started from left to right in the outfield for the nightcap.
Dickerson will sit Saturday against lefty Blake Snell and the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Dickerson broke out to hit .298/.371/.576 last season, but that success has so far not carried over into this year. He's been protected from same-sided pitching, starting just once against a lefty all year, but is still hitting just .224/.288/.373. Darin Ruf will be the left fielder in his absence.
Dickerson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.
Miami is opening the contest with a lefty pitcher (Ross Detwiler), so the lefty-hitting Dickerson will take a seat as the Giants hand the right-handed-hitting Darin Ruf a start in his stead. After a slow start to the season, Dickerson is beginning to settle into a rhythm at the plate; he's recorded eight hits in 22 at-bats over his last seven games.
Dickerson isn't starting Thursday's game against the Marlins, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Left-hander Daniel Castano is starting Thursday's series opener for the Marlins, so Dickerson will retreat to the bench. Darin Ruf will take his place in left field, batting fifth.
Dickerson went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Phillies.
Dickerson put the Giants ahead in the seventh inning with an RBI single to plate Mike Yastrzemski. The 30-year-old Dickerson is slashing .239/.314/.435 with three homers, nine RBI, five runs scored and no stolen bases across 51 plate appearances this season. Wednesday was his first multi-hit effort of the year.
Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Tuesday's 10-7 win over the Phillies.
Dickerson was quiet most of the game but came up big in the eighth when he demolished a three-run homer to right to give the Giants their first lead of the night at 7-6. The 31-year-old is slashing just .190/.277/.405 with three home runs, eight RBI and five runs scored, but he has hit safely in four of the last five games and seems to finally be finding some consistency as the plate.
Dickerson went 1-for-3 with an RBI against the Marlins on Sunday.
Dickerson has been struggling for most of the campaign and entered this game with only one hit in his previous 12 at-bats, but he was the Giants' hero Sunday after plating the game's lone run with an RBI single that scored Tommy La Stella. The veteran outfielder has only six hits this season, however, and his struggles make him a low-end fantasy asset at this point.
Dickerson will sit against lefty Daniel Castano and the Marlins on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Dickerson's platoon role couldn't be more clear. He's started against every righty the Giants have faced while sitting against every lefty. Darin Ruf will serve as the left fielder Friday.
Dickerson isn't starting Monday's game against the Reds, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Dickerson hit his second home run of the season in Sunday's series finale against Colorado, but he'll get a breather with lefty Wade Miley starting for Cincinnati on Monday. Darin Ruf will start in left field, batting third.
Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Sunday's win over the Rockies.
The left-handed hitter smoked a solo shot off German Marquez in the first inning, launching the ball a whopping 413 feet. It was the second of the year for the 30-year-old, who found some power last season and has carried it over into 2021.
Dickerson is out of the lineup for Friday's game versus Colorado, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Along with Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford, Dickerson is one of three lefty-hitting regulars who will take a seat in the series finale with southpaw Blake Snell on the bump for San Diego. Darin Ruf will fill in for Dickerson in left field.
Dickerson will not start Monday's game against the Padres.
Three of the Giants' first four games have come against lefties like Monday's starter Adrian Morejon. Dickerson has been on the bench in all three. Darin Ruf gets the nod in left field this time around.
Dickerson is not in Friday's lineup against the Mariners, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
He will head to the bench for the second game in a row with a southpaw (Yusei Kikuchi) toeing the rubber for Seattle. Dickerson homered off the bench Thursday and should start Saturday's game with righty Chris Flexen starting for the Mariners. In the meantime, Austin Slater draws another leadoff start in left.
Dickerson hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Thursday's 8-7 extra-inning loss to the Mariners.
Dickerson pinch hit for Austin Slater in the ninth inning. The move worked, as Dickerson's homer tied the game at 7-7, forcing an extra inning. The 30-year-old outfielder hit 10 homers and slashed .298/.371/.576 in 52 games last season as a near-everyday presence in the Giants' lineup. He figures to work the strong side of a platoon in left field, while Slater will often start against southpaws.
Dickerson isn't starting Thursday's game against the Mariners, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Dickerson is expected to work on the strong side of a platoon in 2021, and he'll take a seat for Thursday's season opener with southpaw Marco Gonzales starting for Seattle. Austin Slater will take over in left field and lead off Thursday.
Dickerson is 2-for-12 with two runs, three walks and one stolen base through six spring games.
The 30-year-old is still seeing the ball well as the three walks suggest, but he otherwise hasn't found much success early in camp. Dickerson posted an impressive .298/.371/.576 slash line with 10 homers, 10 doubles and 27 RBI in 52 games last season, though he had only 12 plate appearances against left-handed pitching. He could open 2021 working on the strong side of a platoon in left field, which would still afford him plenty of opportunities.
Dickerson signed a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Giants on Wednesday to avoid arbitration, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The 30-year-old had a .298/.371/.576 slash line with 10 homers, 10 doubles and 27 RBI over 52 games during the 2020 campaign, so it's not a surprise to see San Francisco bringing him back at such a modest price. Dickerson had only 12 plate appearances against left-handed pitching last season, and he's a strong bet to work in the strong side of a platoon in left field again in 2021.
