Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times expects Corey Dickerson to begin the season as the Rays' leadoff hitter against right-handers.
Topkin projects Kevin Kiermaier to remain in the No. 2 spot and Dickerson to precede him. It's obviously very favorable news for Dickerson for fantasy purposes, as he slugged 22 home runs against righties last season and is a career .288/.335/.552 hitter against them. Dickerson entered Grapefruit League play on Sunday batting .367/.392/.633 with four longballs this spring. Mar 26 - 3:49 PM

Date:

Corey Dickerson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

It was his fourth homer of the spring. He owns a .367 batting average in 49 at-bats. He needs a strong Grapefruit League campaign to cement his role as an everyday player for the Rays. He hit .245/.293/.469 with 24 home runs and 70 RBI in 148 games in 2016.
Mar 25 - 6:17 PM

Corey Dickerson raised his spring average to .433 by going 4-for-4 as a Rays split-squad beat the Orioles 9-6 on Tuesday.

Dickerson is 13-for-30 with a couple of homers. He's trying to make a case for a spot at or near the top of Tampa Bay's lineup, at least against right-handers. He could also help his chances of playing more versus lefties with a strong showing all spring long.
Mar 14 - 4:47 PM

Corey Dickerson had a two-run homer and a walk Monday in leading the Rays past the Phillies 3-2.

Dickerson was the DH today, and he'll likely start there pretty regularly unless the Rays make some sort of change prior to Opening Day. His fantasy upside is way off from what it was in Coors, but he did manage 24 homers and 36 doubles in his first season in Tampa Bay.
Feb 27 - 4:14 PM

Corey Dickerson said Monday that he has dropped 25 pounds.

Dickerson told reporters that he hopes the weight loss will help his running, swinging, and throwing. The 27-year-old outfielder posted a disappointing .761 OPS in 148 games last season with the Rays, after managing an .879 OPS in 265 games with the Rockies between 2013-2015. Look for better all-around play from Dickerson in 2017. He'll be a late-round flier in mixed fantasy leagues.
Jan 23 - 11:42 AM

Rays and OF Corey Dickerson avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.025 million contract.

It's the first time Dickerson has been eligible for salary arbitration. He batted .245/.293/.469 with 24 home runs in his first season with the Rays.
Jan 13 - 12:16 PM

Corey Dickerson drilled a three-run homer to lead the Rays to victory over the Rangers on Saturday.

He went 1-for-4 on the night. The blast capped off a four run third inning that provided more than enough runs for the Rays to win the game. Dickerson has predictably seen his rate stats fall off in his first season for Tampa Bay after playing three years in Colorado. His playing time however has been much better, leading to improved counting stats. He is batting .248/.295/.473 with 24 home runs and 70 RBI.

Corey Dickerson hit his 23rd home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

Dickerson's solo shot off Luis Cessa in the sixth inning provided a little insurance for the Rays in their 2-0 victory. He's now homered in two straight games and three of his last four, looking to end the year on a high note after a rough start in Tampa. The 27-year-old is hitting .244/.288/.475 with those 23 homers, 65 RBI and 55 runs scored overall.

Corey Dickerson finished 3-for-5 with four RBI in the Rays' 8-1 rout of the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Dickerson plated the game's third run with an RBI single in the top of the fourth inning and then blew the thing wide open with a two-run shot in the top of the sixth. He also added another single in the seventh and tallied his fourth RBI of the afternoon on a force-play grounder in the ninth. It's been a very up-and-down 2016 for Dickerson, but he's tallied a respectable 20 homers and 62 RBI in 131 games and the 27-year-old slugger has been absolutely mashing in September.

Corey Dickerson went 3-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

Dickerson mashed a two-run home run off Luis Cessa in the second inning. After struggling mightily with his average for much of the season, the 27-year-old outfielder has suddenly morphed into a hit machine. Sunday's three-hit effort was his fourth consecutive multi-hit showing. The recent hot streak has boosted his season-long triple-slash to .240/.288/.456. In addition, Dickerson has clocked 19 homers and driven in 58 runs.

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's loss to the Red Sox.

Dickerson singled in his first at-bat and doubled and scored in the fifth inning in his second trip to the dish. The bottom three in the Rays' order each had two-hit games, but the rest of the lineup combined for just three hits. Dickerson has been heating up of late, batting .354 with three homers over his last 14 contests.

Corey Dickerson went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored Friday versus the Astros.

All three hits were doubles. The third one tied the game in the seventh inning. Dickerson had a solid July, but it has mostly been a rough first season with the Rays. While he has 17 homers, he’s batting just .232 with a .283 on-base percentage.
Sat, Aug 27, 2016 01:06:00 AM

Corey Dickerson homered and knocked in two runs Friday against the Yankees.

Dickerson slugged a solo homer in the first inning before driving in a run with a fielder’s choice in the third inning. His first season with the Rays has been a struggle, but he’s up to 15 homers on the year and has hit .295 this month.
Fri, Jul 29, 2016 10:28:00 PM

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three total RBI in Thursday's win over the A's.

Dickerson came through with an RBI single in the first inning, a solo homer in the fourth and a sacrifice fly in the fifth. After struggling to hit for average for most of the season, he has picked it up of late, recording multiple knocks in each of his last three games. Dickerson has eight hits in his last 13 at-bats and has raised his average from .223 to .241 in the process. Not bad for three day's work.
Fri, Jul 22, 2016 03:35:00 AM

Corey Dickerson is not in Monday's lineup against the Rockies.

Dickerson will sit against the lefty Tyler Anderson as the Rays visit his former team in Colorado. Brandon Guyer will start in left field and bat cleanup while Kevin Kiermaier will hit second. Both make for solid plays in DFS.
