Dickson was in the Dodgers’ lineup for the first half of the doubleheader on Saturday and has earned his way to the big leagues after a long time spent below.
Dickson had some serious pop in his bat and blasted 24 homers and 22 doubles to go along with 76 RBI in 116 games in Triple-A. The Sonoma State product has crushed 42 dingers in the last two seasons in Oklahoma City if it weren’t for Rob Segedin, he would have made an appearance in the show much sooner.
The 27-year-old from San Francisco can play first base and the corner outfield spots, he got the start in left in the first part of the double dip but had an awkward play in left field that cost the Dodgers a run.
The bat is really what got him to this point, and right handed power has been a rarity for the Dodgers this season, so he will have a chance to show what he’s got over the next few weeks. Look for him to start a few more games in the outfield and come off the bench to pinch hit for the remainder of the season.
