Corey Dickerson had an RBI double and a run scored in a win over the Padres on Thursday.

Dickerson swatted a run-scoring double in the fourth inning, coming around to score a run himself later in the inning. He continues to be one of the most productive hitters in the National League, with his 28 RBI good for ninth-most in the league. The 28-year-old, who only a few months ago was designated for assignment by the lowly Rays, is hitting .316/.354/.513 with the Bucs.
May 17 - 11:26 PM

Corey Dickerson went 4-for-5 at the dish and drove in a couple runs in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

The Pirates' acquisition of Dickerson in late March after he was surprisingly designated for assignment continues to look like a shrewd move. He's got his batting line on the season up to .333/.371/.550 after he singled three times and also doubled Tuesday.
May 9 - 12:05 AM

Corey Dickerson went 3-for-5 with two RBI on Sunday against the Brewers.

The double give Dickerson 10 on the season, and he also scored a run. To say the Pirates have won the trade with Tampa Bay is an understatement. Dickerson is now hitting .315/.356/.532 in his first season with Pittsburgh, and he's also contributed five homers, 24 runs batted in and three steals.
May 6 - 5:53 PM

Corey Dickerson slugged a two-run homer and drew a walk against the Brewers on Friday.

That gives him three homers in his last five games. Dickerson has proved to be a great addition for the Pirates so far, batting .313/.357/.539 with five home runs and 22 RBI over 30 games. Perhaps the most impressive thing is that he’s only struck out 12 times in 30 games. He had 152 strikeouts in 150 games last season.
May 5 - 1:37 AM

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4, drove in a pair of runs and stole a base in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

He plated a run with a fielder's choice grounder in the first inning, then drove in another run with a single in the third frame. The stolen base was his third of the season. Dickerson continues to make the Rays look foolish for giving up on him. He is rocking a .318 batting average with four homers, 20 RBI and 17 runs in his first season with the Pirates.
May 2 - 11:27 PM

Corey Dickerson swatted a two-run home run off of Max Scherzer in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

Scherzer had held the Pirates off the scoreboard until Dickerson followed Josh Bell's walk with his fourth dinger of the season. The former Rockie and Ray has looked like a fine pickup by the Pirates in the early going with a .311/.354/.534 batting line through his first 27 games.
May 1 - 10:20 PM

Corey Dickerson hit a solo homer in the Pirates' loss to the Nationals on Monday.

It was a seventh-inning shot off Nationals starter Tanner Roark. Dickerson owns a strong .313/.358/.515 batting line with three home runs and 16 RBI through his first 26 games with Pittsburgh. He's been a nice, inexpensive pickup for the Bucs.
Apr 30 - 9:58 PM

Corey Dickerson homered off Alex Wilson in the bottom of the ninth to give the Pirates a 1-0 win over the Rays on Thursday.

Dickerson had been in a little slump of late, going eight straight games without an RBI before providing the only run in this one. It was his second homer of the year, and it pushed his OPS back up to .848.
Apr 26 - 3:39 PM

Corey Dickerson compiled three hits Wednesday in the Pirates’ loss to Detroit.

He finished the afternoon with a double, two singles and two runs scored. Dickerson is still sitting on one home run, but he’s been plenty productive with eight doubles, 12 RBI and a .321 average for the Bucs. Wednesday marked his eighth multi-hit game of the year.
Apr 25 - 8:22 PM

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

The two-hit days boosted his batting average up to .306 for the season. He's hit one home run, driven in 12 runs and scored ten runs. It still makes no sense why the Rays gave this guy away for essentially nothing over the winter.
Apr 21 - 7:39 PM

Corey Dickerson finished 1-for-4 in the Pirates' loss to the Rockies on Monday.

Dickerson is now working on an 11-game hitting streak and batting .351/.377/.561 in 61 overall plate appearances. The 28-year-old outfielder has been a great pickup for Pittsburgh in the early going.
Apr 16 - 9:53 PM

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 and knocked in two runs in a victory over the Marlins on Sunday.

Dickerson has torn the cover off the ball in the early going, and now has a .971 OPS on the young season. He's been one of the better transactions of the offseason early on, and it's still remarkable to think Pittsburgh essentially acquired him for nothing this winter.
Apr 15 - 4:27 PM

Corey Dickerson drove in the only run of run of the game with a ninth-inning bunt single in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

Facing off with Brad Ziegler in the ninth inning, Dickerson stepped to the plate with runners on first and third and one out in a scoreless game. He proceeded to push a bunt through the infield toward first base, a bunt which Ziegler was unable to handle, a bunt which scored Starling Marte and gave the Pirates a 1-0 advantage which they held tight through the final half inning of the game. With that bunt single, Dickerson has now hit safely in 11 consecutive games. He's slashing a robust .347/.385/.592 with one home run and 10 RBI across 49 at-bats on the year.
Apr 14 - 10:29 PM

Corey Dickerson’s red-hot start continued on Tuesday against the Cubs, as he went 3-for-5 with a two-run double and two runs scored.

Dickerson gave the Pirates the lead in the third inning and they wouldn’t look back. The 28-year-old is batting .342 (13-for-38) on the young season and has hit safely in six straight games. Four of them are multi-hit games.
