College career

Dickerson was drafted by the Washington Nationals in the 48th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball draft out of Poway High School but elected to attend Indiana University, where he played outfield and designated hitter for the Indiana Hoosiers baseball team from 2009–2011.[1]

As a freshman, Dickerson hit .370 with 14 home runs, earning Big Ten Conference Freshman of the Year and Freshman All-American honors.[1][2]

Dickerson had a breakout season as a sophomore, slugging .805 and leading the Big Ten in batting average (.419), home runs (24), and runs batted in (75).[1][3] He was named the Big Ten Conference Baseball Player of the Year and earned first-team All-American honors.[1][3]

In 2009 and 2010, he played collegiate summer baseball with the Wareham Gatemen of the Cape Cod Baseball League.

Professional career

Pittsburgh Pirates

Dickerson was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the third round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft.

After signing, Dickerson spent most of the rest of the 2011 season with the State College Spikes.[4] Dickerson spent the 2012 season with the Bradenton Marauders, where he was named the Florida State League Player of the Year.[5]

Prior to the 2013 season, Dickerson was named the 7th-best first base prospect in baseball by[6] He spent 2013 with the Double-A Altoona Curve, where he moved from first base to the outfield.

San Diego Padres

On November 25, 2013, Dickerson was traded to the San Diego Padres for Jaff Decker and Miles Mikolas.

Dickerson severely sprained his ankle in 2014 Spring Training with the Padres, and a MRI later found a cyst on his heel which required surgery.[7] The surgery delayed his start to the 2014 season, but he finished with 34 games with the Double-A San Antonio Missions. On November 20, 2014, the Padres added Dickerson to their 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

Dickerson spent most of 2015 with the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas, hitting .307 with 12 home runs over 125 games, including 88 starts in left field. His performance earned him the Pacific Coast League Rookie of the Year Award.[8]

On August 6, 2015, Dickerson made his Major League debut with the San Diego Padres with a pinch-hitting appearance in the 8th inning. He was called up to replace Will Venable, who went on paternity leave.[9] The next day, Dickerson collected his first Major League hit with a pinch single in extra innings. Dickerson returned to the Padres when rosters expanded in September.[10] A tweaked hip limited his playing opportunities,[11] but Dickerson appeared in eight more games as a pinch hitter, and once as a defensive substitute in left field.

Dickerson started the 2016 season in Triple-A El Paso. On May 2, the Padres recalled Dickerson from Triple-A.[12] On May 10 against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, Dickerson hit a pinch-hit grand slam off of Adam Warren for his first career home run and his first four career RBIs.[13] He made his first Major League start in left field the following day, but was returned to El Paso on May 14.[14] With the Chihuahuas, he continued a 28-game minor league hitting streak through the end of May.[15] On June 28, Dickerson was recalled from El Paso when Jon Jay broke his forearm.[16] Dickerson remained as the regular left fielder for the Padres for the remainder of the season. He finished the season with a .257/.333/.455 batting line and 10 home runs in 285 plate appearances. He made 65 starts in left field.

Dickerson suffered a bulging disk in Spring Training of 2017. After initially trying to rehab the injury, Dickerson underwent back surgery which ended his season.[17]

While trying to come back from his previous injury, Dickerson tore his UCL in Spring Training of 2018 and underwent Tommy John Surgery, costing him another full season.[18] He was outrighted off the roster after the season. He elected free agency on November 3, 2018, and later re-signed to a minor league deal on December 11.[19]

Dickerson had his contract selected to the major leagues on May 3, 2019, but was designated for assignment on June 5.

San Francisco Giants

On June 10, 2019, Dickerson was traded to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for Franklin Van Gurp. On June 21, 2019, in his first game with the Giants, he hit a grand slam and had a career-high 6 runs batted in.[20]
