Pirates acquired OF Corey Dickerson from the Rays for RHP Daniel Hudson, INF Tristan Gray, and cash considerations.
Dickerson was designated for assignment by the Rays last weekend despite posting a decent .282/.325/.490 batting line with 27 home runs in 150 games last season. The 28-year-old will become the new starting left fielder in Pittsburgh, though he figures to get days off against left-handed opponents. Dickerson holds an .866 career OPS against righties and a .706 career OPS versus southpaws. Feb 22 - 1:23 PM

Rays designated OF Corey Dickerson for assignment.

As noted by Baseball America's Kyle Glaser on Twitter, Dickerson went from being the American League's starting designated hitter in last summer's All-Star Game to being removed from the Rays' 40-man roster days before spring training was set to open. Dickerson's career path has been a strange one, but the 28-year-old shouldn't be out of a job for long given his past brushes with success. Still, a shocking move from the Tampa club as camp is set to open, to say the least.

Rays and OF Corey Dickerson avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.95 million contract.

It was Dickerson's second year of arbitration eligibility. He's popped 51 home runs over the last two seasons for the Rays.

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 and scored a run in Saturday's defeat of the Orioles.

He singled leading off the fourth inning and trotted home on a Brad Miller home run. Dickerson was stellar in the first half of the season but faltered badly down the stretch. He has a .279 batting average with 27 home runs, 62 RBI and 84 runs scored with one game remaining.

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

Dickerson continues to set new career-best marks in homers, now at 27 with his solo dong off Sonny Gray in the first inning. His 83 runs scored are also a personal best, and just in general it's been a much-needed year for the 28-year-old after he disappointed in his Rays debut in 2016. With a few games left in the 2017 regular season, Dickerson is batting .278/.321/.488 overall.

Dickerson finished the blowout victory 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored, contributing a solo homer in the bottom of the second inning and an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth. The 28-year-old corner outfielder and DH is now slashing .288/.333/.513 with 26 home runs, 60 RBI, and 77 runs scored in 132 games this season for Tampa Bay.

Corey Dickerson went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a walk to help the Rays top the Cardinals 7-3 on Friday.

Dickerson is 9-for-15 with two homers the last four days after going 7-for-58 with one homer in his previous 15 games. One imagines the Rays will move him back up in the lineup; they dropped him to sixth because of his slump.

Corey Dickerson homered and scored both Rays runs Thursday in a 2-0 win over the Blue Jays.

Dickerson entered the series against the Jays in a 7-for-58 slump, but he went 5-for-11 with two homers as the Rays took two out of three. He's now matched his career high of 24 homers, established in 2014 and equaled last year.

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 and hit his 23rd homer Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

The homer came off a Triple-A pitcher in Chris Rowley, but the struggling Dickerson will certainly take it. He had just one previous homer in August and was hitting .167/.221/.222 in 72 at-bats for the month.

Corey Dickerson finished 0-for-5 as the Rays fell to the Blue Jays on Monday.

He left five runners on base in the 2-1 loss. Dickerson is stuck in a 3-for-38 (.079) offensive rut, though he still has a shot at setting some new career highs if he can finish strong down the stretch.

Corey Dickerson hit a three-run home run in the eighth inning to help the Rays score a 4-1 win over the Indians on Thursday.

With two outs, Dickerson hit a drive to straight-away center field that Indians center fielder Bradley Zimmer appeared to have a bead on. Zimmer, though, ran out of real estate, crashing into the center field wall as the ball scraped over it. The homer was Dickerson's only hit of the night, and it was his 22nd of the year. He's the owner of a strong .292/.337/.516 line, 53 RBI, 69 runs scored and three steals to date.
