Giants' Alex Dickerson: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Mets, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Dickerson fell just a home run short of the cycle Thursday in the series opener, going 3-for-7 with a double and a triple in a 3-2 victory. He'll head to the bench for the second matchup of the series, allowing for Mike Yastrzemski to shift to left field and for Austin Slater to pick up a start in right.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Triples, doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 3-for-7 with a triple, a double and a run scored in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Mets.

Dickerson tripled to deep right center in the second inning, singled in the 11th, then led off the 16th frame with a double and eventually scored the game-tying run after Brandon Crawford followed suit with a double of his own. On the season, Dickerson is slashing .412/.474/.794 with eight doubles, four home runs, three triples and 19 RBI over 68 plate appearances.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Dickerson has gone 7-for-10 with three doubles and three RBI in two starts since returning from a minor back injury, but he'll retreat to the bench for Wednesday's series finale as the Giants look to ease him back into action. Austin Slater is starting in the outfield and hitting second in his place.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Four hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 4-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 8-4 win over Colorado.

Dickerson hasn't skipped a beat since returning from his minor back injury, going a combined 7-for-10 with three doubles and three RBI in two starts. The 29-year-old has been playing every game like he's in Coors Field since joining the Giants, slashing .400/.471/.783 with four homers and 18 RBI over 67 plate appearances. Dickerson continues to start in right field and bat in the heart of the order against right-handed starters. It would be tough to ignore this kind of production in almost any format.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson isn't starting Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Dickerson picked up three hits and an RBI in Game 1, but he'll head to the bench for the nightcap. Mike Yastrzemski gets the call in left field and will bat sixth in Dickerson's absence.

July 15, 2019 01:24 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson (back) is back in the lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

Dickerson left Friday's game with back tightness and did not appear in either game over the weekend. He'll play left field and bat cleanup in Monday afternoon's game, though there's a good chance the Giants sit him for the nightcap to avoid overtaxing his back.

July 14, 2019 01:44 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Remains sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson (back) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Milwaukee, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Dickerson was removed from Friday's game with back tightness and will be out of the lineup for a second straight contest. The 29-year-old has battled significant back issues in the past, but manager Bruce Bochy believes the issue is minor and that he'll rejoin the starting nine Monday. According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Dickerson is also available off the bench Sunday.

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

Dickerson (back) is on the bench as expected Saturday against the Brewers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson left Friday's game with back tightness and was ruled out for Saturday's contest after the game. Brandon Belt will start in left field in his absence and could spend more time there until the Giants are fully confident in Dickerson's health, as he's had significant back problems in the past.

July 13, 2019 12:12 AM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Exits with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson left Friday's game against the Brewers with back tightness and will be held out of Saturday's game, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

He went 0-for-3 before exiting. Back issues have plagued Dickerson for several years, so the Giants won't take any chances, already ruling him out the night before Saturday's contest. Hopefully it is just a day-to-day issue. Mike Yastrzemski could get the start in left field in his place.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-4 loss to the Cardinals.

He's up to four homers and 14 RBI in 14 games with the Giants after batting just .158 over 12 games with the Padres earlier in the year. Dickerson will primarily start against right-handers going forward, but he's making the most of his limited at-bats with a season line of .295/.348/.590 in 26 games overall.

July 6, 2019 01:36 AM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Homers in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson started in left field and went 1-for-4 with his third home run of the season in Wednesday's 7-5 win over San Diego.

Dickerson was situated on the bench for four consecutive games (three against lefty starters) despite a blazing-hot start to his career in orange and black (.375/.444/.750 across first 10 games). The 29-year-old slugger returned to the starting nine against the right-handed Cal Quantrill, signalling a strict platoon situation for the time being. When Dickerson is penciled on the lineup card, manager Bruce Bochy has his new asset batting either fourth or fifth in the order. Dickerson is proving to be a valuable power commodity with eight extra-base hits over his first 10 starts in San Francisco.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against San Diego, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Dickerson will head to the bench for the third straight contest with another lefty slated to toe the rubber for the opposition. Tyler Austin will once again man left field and bat third.

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

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

Dickerson will head to the bench for the second straight day with a lefty taking the mound for San Diego. Tyler Austin draws the start in left field and is batting third with Dickerson out of the mix.

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

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Dickerson has emerged as the Giants' primary option in left field lately and is hitting .367 with seven extra-base hits, 12 RBI and six runs in his first nine games with the big club. While he'll be locked into a prominent spot in the lineup versus right-handers so long as he continues to wield a hot bat, Dickerson could find himself on the bench against southpaws as part of a platoon with Tyler Austin. The Giants are in line to oppose three lefties (Logan Allen, Matt Strahm and Eric Lauer) in their upcoming series in San Diego, so Dickerson's opportunities could be limited early in the week.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Dickerson smoked a solo shot that bounced into the San Francisco Bay in the second inning for his second long ball of the year. The 29-year-old has finally resurfaced after battling a back injury over several seasons. With the way he's playing, there's plenty of potential to include him in deeper fantasy formats. Right now, he's slashing .423/.500/.885 with 12 RBI over eight games.

June 27, 2019 06:08 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Dickerson has started six straight games since joining the Giants last week, slashing .429/.500/.857 with one home run, 10 RBI and a stolen base during that stretch. In his absence, Tyler Austin is starting in the outfield and hitting third.

June 28, 2019 11:28 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson hit cleanup and went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to Colorado.

Dickerson was also gunned out trying to steal second, making him 1-for-2 on stolen base attempts this season. The 29-year-old has gotten off to a strong start with his new club, slashing .429/.500/.857 with six extra-base hits and 10 RBI in just six contests. Dickerson had missed nearly three full seasons with a major back injury, but the outfielder showed some promise before going down in 2016 (10 homers and five steals over 84 games with the Padres that year). The veteran could be worth a flier for owners in need of pop, as his hot start should keep his name in the lineup on an offensively challenged Giants squad.

Giants' Alex Dickerson: Huge night in return to bigs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson went 3-for-5 with a triple, a home run and six RBI in Friday's 11-5 win over the Diamondbacks.

Called up from Triple-A Sacramento earlier in the day, Dickerson celebrated his return to the majors by setting a franchise record for RBI in a Giants debut, highlighted by a third-inning grand slam. The 29-year-old is likely to see consistent playing time in the short term while Steve Duggar (back) is on the shelf, and Dickerson's career .256/.325/.449 slash line in 317 big-league plate appearances suggests he could be useful in deeper fantasy formats.

June 21, 2019 06:48 PM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Joins big-league squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Dickerson appears in line to get reps in the outfield with Steven Duggar (back) landing on the injured list Friday. Dickerson struggled at the dish earlier this season with the Padres, hitting just .158 with two RBI over 12 games, but he'll aim for a better outcome this time around.

June 11, 2019 04:48 AM
Giants' Alex Dickerson: Sent to San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickerson was traded from the Padres to the Giants on Monday in exchange for Franklin Van Gurp.

Dickerson will head north after being designated for assignment by the Padres last week. The 29-year-old outfielder will report to Triple-A Sacramento, though given San Francisco's lack of outfield depth, he could eventually get a shot with the big club as a lefty-hitting outfielder. Dickerson struggled across 12 appearances with the Padres before being shipped to the Giants, slashing just .158/.158/.158 in 19 trips to the plate. He fared better with Triple-A El Paso, however, slashing .372/.469/.606 with five homers in 26 games (113 plate appearances).
