Phillies acquire OF Dickerson from Pirates

Corey Dickerson bats for the Pirates at Citizens Bank Park in a game against the Phillies in April 2018.

The Phillies have acquired outfielder Corey Dickerson from the Pirates, both clubs announced. It's possible that Pittsburgh is picking up some worldwide funds, then, or that Pirates ownership was simply happy to shed the remainder of his salary.

Dickerson is owed just under $3 million the rest of this season before becoming a free agent.

The Phillies will be Dickerson's fourth major-league team as he previously played for Colorado and Tampa Bay. He is a.285 career hitter with 107 home runs.

In February 2018, Dickerson was dealt to the Pirates for Daniel Hudson and a prospect.

A Super Hornet single-seat fighter jet from Lemoore Naval Air Station has crashed in Death Valley, according to the U.S. The jet was part of VFA-151, a squadron belonging to Carrier Air Wing 9 and attached to USS John C.

Dickerson is hitting.315 with 18 doubles, four homers and 25 RBI with a.931 OPS in 43 games this season. A 2017 All-Star, Dickerson long carried the reputation as a defensive liability, but he surprised with 16 Defensive Runs Saved last season and took home a Gold Glove for his efforts.

Dickerson, 30, missed almost two months with a shoulder strain earlier this season but has hit well since coming off the injured list.

Will the New York Mets deal Zack Wheeler to the Houston Astros? But returning to the lineup on Tuesday night in Cincinnati, Dickerson blasted two home runs and drove in five during the Pirates brawl-filled victory over the Reds. The Phillies designated outfielder Dylan Cozens for assignment to make room for Dickerson.

Assuming he is fully healthy, Dickerson could start almost every day for the Phillies in left field for the rest of this season.

On the Pirates' end, it feels light, but this is only for two months of a player who is injury-prone.
