Giants' Alex Dickerson: Stuck on bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson will sit against lefty Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers on Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson hasn't started against any of the seven lefties the Giants have faced this season, so it's no surprise to see him sit against one of the best southpaws in the league. Hunter Pence and Austin Slater start in the outfield corners Saturday.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Dickerson has started against every righty the Giants have faced this season but has yet to be in the lineup against a lefty. That tradition will continue against Julio Urias on Friday, with Darin Ruf and Austin Slater handling the outfield corners.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Out versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

He'll retreat to the bench with southpaw Kyle Freeland on the mound for the Rockies. The righty-hitting Hunter Pence will replace the lefty-hitting Dickerson in the Giants outfield.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Sitting versus left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson is not starting Sunday against the Rangers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson is 5-for-19 through six games and will head to the bench with the Giants loading up on right-handed bats against lefty Kolby Allard. Hunter Pence will move out to left field while Darin Ruf serves as the designated hitter.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Belts first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a triple, a walk and two additional runs Wednesday in the Giants' 7-6 win over the Padres.

Dickerson's sixth-inning long ball off David Bednar was one of four home runs on the night for the Giants. The two extra-base hits, three runs and RBI were the first of the season for Dickerson, who had gone 2-for-10 with a pair of singles over his first three starts.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Looking healthy at summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson said Tuesday that his back feels great at summer camp as he prepares to fill a regular role in the heart of the Giants' lineup against right-handed pitching in 2020, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Dickerson dealt with chronic back issues that required surgery in 2017 and then underwent Tommy John surgery in 2018, keeping him sidelined for two full seasons before he returned to action in 2019. After being traded from San Diego to San Francisco last June, Dickerson immediately went on a tear, batting .386 with six home runs, 10 doubles and 23 RBI in his first 30 games with the club. An oblique injury would confine him to the shelf for much of the second half and limited his production when he returned, but a healthy Dickerson is now beginning to show flashes of the promise he displayed last June and July. He hit a soaring home run off Shaun Anderson in an intrasquad game Tuesday, further solidifying his status as a pillar in middle of the order. If Dickerson can hold up for the entirety of a 60-game slate, he could prove to be a sneaky value late in fantasy drafts.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Strong in Cactus League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson had a .320/.346/.640 slash line with three doubles, one triple and one home run in 10 games prior to the suspension of spring training.

The 29-year-old missed some time in 2019 due to oblique issues, but he ended up appearing in 68 games between the Padres and Giants while posting a .276/.332/.489 slash line. Dickerson has dealt with numerous injuries throughout the last few years, but he's expected to be in the mix for a starting spot in the corner outfield for the Giants once play resumes.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Remains with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Sitting in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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

Dickerson will hit the bench Saturday against the Dodgers.

Dickerson sits against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu. Joey Rickard gets the start in left field.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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).

September 22, 2019 11:40 AM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Not part of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 19, 2019 11:08 AM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 19, 2019 09:44 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Tallies hit in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 18, 2019 04:48 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: First start in two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Pinch hits again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 17, 2019 04:08 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Absent from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 13, 2019 07:40 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Could return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 13, 2019 07:08 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
