Chris Dickerson (hamstring) will be available to play Friday.

Dickerson missed the last couple games before the All-Star break with a hamstring injury, but he just needed a few days off to heal. He's gone 8-for-17 at the plate since joining the Tribe.
Jul 17 - 7:59 PM

Chris Dickerson is not in the Indians starting lineup on Saturday due to a hamstring injury.

Dickerson has done a nice job filling in for the injured Michael Bourn, going 8-for-17 (.471) with an RBI and four runs scored in his first five games. He should be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list.
Jul 12 - 2:33 PM

Indians acquired OF Chris Dickerson from the Pirates for a player to be named later or cash.

Dickerson has posted a strong .309/.407/.479 batting line with seven home runs and 12 stolen bases in 65 games this season at the Triple-A level. The 32-year-old could see semi-regular action for Cleveland while Michael Bourn recovers from another hamstring strain and may be worth a look in some AL-only fantasy leagues.
Jul 7 - 2:42 PM

Pirates reassigned OF Chris Dickerson, LHPs Daniel Schlereth and Adam Wilk, RHP Zack Thornton, C Omir Santos, INFs Michael Martinez and Robert Andino.

No real surprises with this wave of cuts. Dickerson played well this spring, hitting .355 (11-for-31) with two doubles and seven RBI in 15 games, but the Pirates simply didn't have enough room for him.
Mar 25 - 9:50 AM

Chris Dickerson had two hits and a stolen base as the Pirates' leadoff man on Saturday.

Dickerson is hoping to fit into the Pirates' right field picture with his .355 average this spring. He's not going to hit for average in the regular season, but he does offer enough power, speed and defense to contribute as a part-timer. Still, it remains to be seen if the Pirates will carve out a role for him.
Mar 22 - 5:44 PM

Pirates signed OF Chris Dickerson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Dickerson batted just .238 with a .266 on-base percentage in 109 plate appearances last season for Baltimore. The Orioles outrighted him off their 40-man roster in October and he'll likely have to report to the Pirates' Triple-A club at the start of the 2014 season.
Jan 6 - 8:59 AM

Chris Dickerson has elected free agency.

Dickerson had been outrighted off the Orioles' 40-man roster Thursday. He'll seek employment elsewhere after batting .238/.266/.400 with four home runs and five stolen bases in 109 plate appearances this season with Baltimore.

He's active and in uniform for Friday's game against the White Sox. The veteran outfielder was hitting .243/.350/.368 with two homers and eight RBI in 37 games at Norfolk. He'll provide speed and a bit of left-handed pop of the bench for the O's.
