Orioles reassigned OF Chris Dickerson to minor league camp.
Dickerson had a decent camp, particularly in the power department (four homers in 38 at-bats) but didn't do enough to crack the O's Opening Day roster. The 34-year-old journeyman hasn't played in the big leagues since 2014 and he's running out of chances to make it back. Mar 30 - 6:06 PM

Date:

Chris Dickerson hit his fourth spring homer in his lone at-bat off the bench Thursday against the Tigers.

In an alternate universe, a more durable Dickerson is finishing up his career as a decent regular corner outfielder and spending the next couple of years as a bench player before heading off to retirement. In this one, the soon-to-be 35-year-old has had more than 200 major league at-bats in a season just once (with the Reds in 2009) and hasn't played in the majors at all since 2014. He's had a nice spring, going 10-for-38 with a .996 OPS, but the Orioles aren't going to carry him and it's doubtful he'll soon wind up with a bench job elsewhere.
