Corey Dickerson went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer as the Rays beat the Indians 7-4 on Wednesday afternoon in Cleveland.

Dickerson took Josh Tomlin for a ride over the right field fence to extend Tampa Bay's lead to 4-0 in the top of the second inning. He also singled in the top of the first inning and is now showing a tremendous .335/.382/.608 batting line with nine home runs through 40 games this season. The 27-year-old outfielder may be headed for his first All-Star Game in July. Who needs the Coors Field effect?
May 17 - 4:11 PM

Corey Dickerson clubbed a pair of solo home runs in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Dickerson hit the second of back-to-back shots off of Danny Salazar in the third inning and then got to Salazar again with a leadoff shot in the fifth. He may not be playing in Coors Field anymore, but you wouldn't know it by how Dickerson is hitting so far in a fine bounce-back season. He's sporting a .333/.382/.595 batting line with eight dingers.
May 16 - 9:28 PM

Corey Dickerson went 4-for-6 with two runs scored Sunday in the Rays' defeat of the Red Sox.

Dickerson tripled off Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz in the top of the first inning and singled and doubled as part of the Rays' seven-run outburst in the top of the ninth. He also singled and scored in the seventh. The 27-year-old has batted .340/.387/.576 with six home runs, 13 RBI, and 21 runs scored in 37 games this season for Tampa Bay.
May 14 - 6:10 PM

Corey Dickerson rapped two singles in four at-bats during Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He has quietly been swinging one of the hottest bats in the league throughout the season's first month. He owns a .337 batting average with six home runs, 13 runs scored and 10 RBI. His 1.025 OPS ranks him in the top 10 in the majors.
Apr 29 - 4:30 PM

Corey Dickerson clubbed his sixth home run of the season on Friday as the Rays came from behind to beat the Blue Jays in Toronto.

The Rays entered the eighth inning trailing 3-1 before Dickerson took Marcus Stroman deep to halve the deficit. He also doubled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. While he isn't a conventional leadoff man, he has filled the role admirably against right-handed pitching and is now hitting .329/.368/.659 with six homers and 10 RBI on the season.
Apr 28 - 10:27 PM

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a homer in the Rays' loss to the Orioles on Monday.

Dickerson went deep for his fifth home run of the season in the top of the first inning against Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez. He then hit a two-out double, his eighth double of the season, off Vidal Nuno in the top of the sixth. Dickerson is off to a promising start in 2017, now with a .324/.367/.635 batting line in 20 games.
Apr 24 - 10:49 PM

Corey Dickerson socked a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Astros.

Dickerson was an unlikely to choice to share leadoff duties for the Rays, but he has taken to it so far. The 27-year-old has four homers and six doubles through 17 games to go along with a .317/.358/.603 batting line. The batting average won’t last, but he’s an underappreciated power contributor in fantasy leagues.
Apr 21 - 11:01 PM

Corey Dickerson is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Saturday against Chris Sale and the Red Sox.

Dickerson generally gets his days off against tough left-handers, and Sale certainly fits the bill. Rickie Weeks is starting as the designated hitter for the Rays and batting cleanup on Saturday.
Apr 15 - 12:01 PM

Corey Dickerson clubbed his second home run of the season in Sunday's victory over the Blue Jays.

Dickerson got the scoring started for the Rays with a solo shot off of Jays' starter Marco Estrada in the third inning. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 plus a walk and is now hitting .360/.407/.680 on the season. He's off to a hot start and hitting leadoff against right-handed pitching which means he should be owned and started in most mixed leagues at this point.
Apr 9 - 4:18 PM

Corey Dickerson led off the game with a solo home run and finished 2-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's 4-1 defeat of the Yankees.

He homered off Michael Pineda in the first inning, then singled home a run in the second inning. The 27-year-old has a lot of power but makes a lot of outs. He batted .245/.293/.469 with 24 home runs and 70 RBI in 148 games last year. He figures to play every day versus right-handed pitchers but it remains to be seen how much he will play versus southpaws.
Apr 5 - 11:44 PM

Corey Dickerson is in the designated hitter spot and batting leadoff for the Rays in Sunday's opener versus the Yankees.

Dickerson is expected to serve as the leadoff hitter against righties and will move down in the order and/or sit some when a lefty is on the mound. He smashed 22 home runs against right-handers last season and is a career .288/.335/.552 hitter against them. The Rays' full Opening Day lineup against Masahiro Tanaka is as follows: Dickerson DH, Kevin Kiermaier CF, Evan Longoria 3B, Brad Miller 2B, Steven Souza RF, Logan Morrison 1B, Tim Beckham SS, Mallex Smith LF, Derek Norris C.
Apr 2 - 9:41 AM

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

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.
