Corey Dickerson leaves game with plantar fasciitis flare up

14 Comments

Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson exited Monday’s game in the third inning when the plantar fasciitis in his left foot flared up.

Dickerson has been playing through the injury, which has derailed the careers of big-name athletes in multiple sports because of its tendency to linger. So far he’s 14-for-49 (.286) with two homers and an .824 OPS, but the bigger issue figures to be his ability to play defense.

Dickerson had a breakout 2014 season at age 25, hitting .312 with 24 homers and a .931 OPS that ranked fifth among all NL players.
