Anyone know anything about this guy ? He put up some pretty nice minor league numbers, career .322-.381-.603 and he's starting in RF today for COL.

I know he's been on Baseball America's weekly hot sheets an impressive 3 times this year. They say he doesn't project to have typical corner OF power, but he should hit a lot of gaps for extra base hits.

I'd love to know from Rockies fans what you've heard about Dickerson and what his playing time looks like going forward.

Watching on MLB.tv, and the kid's got a gorgeous left handed swing, and roped a ball low and away to left-center for his first MLB hit in his first AB.

Nats announcers said the Rockies were excited about the kid and would find places for him to play if he kept the bat going. That they liked his swing and ability to drive the ball and be a professional hitter.

John Sickel's take prior to this year:

8) Corey Dickerson, OF, Grade B-: At some point people just have to admit that the guy can hit, mediocre tools and middling glove aside. May not be a big batting average guy, but the power is real in my view.


And at the end of last year headed into the AFL:

Corey Dickerson, OF, Rockies: Age 23, defied suspicious scouts with .338/.396/.583 line in 60 games in High-A and .274/.322/.504 line in 67 games in Double-A, combining for 22 homers and 40 doubles. Still panned for average tools but he keeps producing.


He then posted a .364/.368/.515 line in the AFL, and was hitting .386/.429/.646 this year in AAA. May just be a professional hitter flying under the radar for lack of loud tools.

Interesting Sickel likes his power, not his contact.

This is from this week's Baseball America's Hot Sheet:

The Scoop: Dickerson can hit. He’s a left fielder without profile left-field power—his swing is more conducive for line-drive doubles than leave-the-park home runs—so there have been concerns about where he fits. But there are a lot of line drives in his bat. Yes, he plays in Colorado Springs, but Dickerson is hitting .390, which works out to an excellent average no matter which park one calls home. He has 14 multi-hit games in 19 games this month.

I think the lineup they are running out today is their best. Cuddy at first instead of Helton and a nice outfield of Cargo, Fowler, and this kid. Definitely worth an add if he gets a run. Unfortunately, the Rockies have Cuddyer and Colvin as options. But then again, if someone goes down...

Sounds kinda like the same stuff we heard about Seth Smith in COL.
And all the greatest of the heroes
Started jumping from the books
They started wearing ones and zeros
Looking more and more like crooks
They stole the sunlight from the future
Took a sip, drank half the glass then put it back

They've never shown a willingness to play Colvin extensively, especially this year when Weis sent him to AAA.

Cuddy should stay at 1B with this kid in RF, but the Rockies will likely mess with it. Still, it's stupid to call up prospects like this kid and not play them everyday. He could be a sneaky good stick in deeper leagues.

That ball was roped to RF.

That's how you keep yourself in the lineup...

And out of curiosity I checked his splits:
.375/.407/.714 vs. LHP
.389/.434/.629 vs. RHP

Color me intrigued.

He's not an everyday player yet. Don't worry you'll get your add. (Unless you are in NL only or deep leagues.)

He reminds me of Charlie Blackman. Charlie got off to a great start like this but didn't have the staying power. Let's hope this kid keep raking.

The 24-year-old outfielder was brought up to help out with Dexter Fowler (finger) still ailing and Tyler Colvin struggling. Not only did Dickerson hit .386/.429/.646 with nine homers at Triple-A Colorado Springs to begin the year, he also added 19 doubles and legged out 13 triples.

IIRC, Blackmon had zero prospect pedigree or hype. While the scouts haven't raved about Dickerson's tools, he's shown a much better track record of hitting. He's panned in prospect circles for his glove, and some have questioned his power.

I think Charlie Blackmon comps may sell him a bit short.

Why do people say he doesn't have power?

He hit HRs:
32 in 2011 (A)
23 in 2012 (R, A+, AA)
9 in 2013 (303 ABs)

Grabbed him yesterday. You know what I like most about him?

Lefty hitter batting .375 against lefties this year (21 for 56). That should help him avoid being a platoon player. Someone should have sent the memo to Weiss. He's got that waste of space Pacheco in there today. I don't care of Detwiler is on the mound, lets see what the kid can do against him. We already know what Pacheco can do.....NOTHING.

Most of what I post is for giggles. Please do not take me seriously when I'm venting about a pitcher that just got bombed or a hitter in a 2 for 20 slump. It's all for effect and trying to make all my fellow rotoheads chuckle, so don't be "that guy", yeah you know what I'm talking about.

They should bench Helton and play him in LF...but that would make too much sense.

Keep in mind his good line was against Damn Haren arguably the worst pitcher in the 1st half of the season who is going on the DL with injury. Highly doubt Dickerson will play enough, or do enough to warrant a fantasy roster spot.
