Dixon went 1-for-2 with a walk-off three-run home run in a 5-2 victory against the Royals on Sunday.
The 27-year-old entered the game in the eighth as a pinch hitter and then went deep in his second at-bat. It was his first hit in 13 at-bats and first homer of the year. Dixon is 7-for-24 (.292) with three extra-base hits, seven RBI and one run in nine games this season.
Dixon is starting at first base and batting fifth in Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Dixon has been seeing fairly regular playing time since getting called up from Triple-A Toledo on April 18, and he's parlayed it into a .429/.467/.571 slash line across 14 at-bats. Dixon could be squeezed for time a bit whenever Christin Stewart (quadriceps) returns from the injured list, but the 27-year-old should still find his way into the lineup most days for the time being.
Dixon went 3-for-4 with a three-run double in a 4-2 victory during the second game of a doubleheader against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old only pinch ran in the first game and then started the nightcap. The way he's swinging the bat, though, he's making his case for more playing time. In three MLB games this season, he's 5-for-7 (.714) with two doubles and four RBI. It's still way too early to make any logical projections for the rest of Dixon's 2019 season, but he's off to a strong start.
Dixon went 2-for-3 with two singles and an RBI during his 2019 MLB debut in a 4-3 victory against the White Sox on Sunday.
The 27-year-old made a nice impression during his Tigers debut. The team called him up from Triple-A on Thursday when it placed Christin Stewart on the 10-day injured list. Dixon has some pop, as he recorded 11 extra-base hits in 118 at-bats with the Reds last season, but he also only slashed .178/.218/.356. Despite the hot debut, keep the expectations in check.
Dixon received the promotion to the big leagues after the Tigers placed outfielder Christin Stewart (quadriceps) on the 10-day injured list. The Tigers likely brought Dixon up mostly for his ability to play three infield position and both corner-infield spots, as he certainly didn't earn a callup due to his performance at the plate. In 11 games at Toledo this season, Dixon slashed .174/.174/.239 while striking out in 34.7 percent of his plate appearances.
