Indians acquire Chris Dickerson from Pirates

1 Comment

Looking to add some outfield depth in the wake of Michael Bourn’s latest hamstring injury, the Indians have acquired veteran Chris Dickerson from the Pirates in exchange for a player to be named later or cash.

Dickerson has spent all of this season at Triple-A, hitting .309 with seven homers and an .886 OPS in 65 games for the Pirates’ affiliate.

He played a part-time role for the Orioles last season and the 31-year-old has spent parts of six seasons in the majors for four different teams, hitting a combined .262 with a .339 on-base percentage and .409 slugging percentage. He’s not a starting-caliber big leaguer, but Dickerson is a solid pickup on the cheap.
