Dud: Corey Dickerson
May Stats (21 G): .176/.236/.235, 0 HR, 2 RBI, 7 R, 13 SO
Outfielder Corey Dickerson was supposed to be the primary left handed DH option for the club and spell the Cardinal outfield when injuries or rest forced days off. So far, Dickerson has shown major signs of regression and may be the Cardinal most at risk of being moved off the roster if he does not turn things around quickly.
Not only are Dickerson’s splits bad, but he just has not shown much at the plate to make anyone think there is success just around the corner. Dickerson is a gamer and a great veteran to have on your club, but patience is running out as other options on the club continue to outproduce him.
Once Tyler O’Neill and Dylan Carlson are back, Dickerson will have to fight with Nolan Gorman, Juan Yepez, and Albert Pujols for at bats at DH. The fourth outfielder role seems to be in doubt as well, as Yepez, Brendan Donovan, and even Lars Nootbaar seem to provide more value currently.
Unfortunately for Dickerson, it seems like his time in St. Louis is coming to an end soon.
