LF - SF
Outfielder Alex Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Giants 4-0 win over the Rockies on Sunday.
Dickerson put the Giants on the board in the bottom of the first when he took German Marquez deep for his second dinger of the season. The 30-year-old can be a fantasy asset whenever he faces a righty but his season numbers are nothing special at the moment. He's slashing .200/.333/.500 with two home runs and four RBI.
Outfielder Alex Dickerson went 1-for-1 with an RBI single and a walk in the Giants 3-1 win over the Rockies on Friday.
LHP Austin Gomber started the game for Colorado so Dickerson didn't start on Friday. He pinch-hit for Mauricio Dubon in the bottom of the eighth inning and delivered an RBI single off Robert Stephenson to tack on an insurance run for San Francisco. Dickerson isn't an everyday player in real life so he can't be one in fantasy either but he's worth streamer consideration whenever he faces a right-hander.
Alex Dickerson went 1-for-1 with a solo, pinch-hit home run in the Giants 8-7 loss to the Mariners in extra-innings on Opening Day.
The Giants were facing a lefty in Marco Gonzales so Dickerson didn't start in this one. He came up to pinch-hit in the top of the ninth inning with the Giants trailing by one run after blowing a five-run lead in the eighth inning. He promptly smacked an 0-2 offering from Mariners closer Rafael Montero over the wall in right-center to send the game to extras, where the Giants would eventually lose. Dickerson is going to be platooned throughout the season but he's always worth streamer and DFS consideration when facing right-handed pitching. He put up a .952 OPS over 158 plate appearances in 2020 vs. RHP.
San Francisco Giants outfielder Alex Dickerson went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's Cactus League game vs. the Colorado Rockies.
The 30-year-old outfielder is batting .300 this spring with one long ball, a pair of RBI, and a stolen base. He had a quiet breakout last season with the Giants, finishing the year with a .298/.371/.576 batting line to go along with 10 home runs and 27 RBI over 151 at-bats. He did most of his damage facing right-handed pitching and should do the same this season. He fared well against lefties as well but he was mostly benched when San Francisco was up against a southpaw.
Alex Dickerson agreed to a one-year $2.1 million contract with the Giants, avoiding arbitration.
Dickerson has been an above-average offensive corner outfielder in parts of the last three seasons, including hitting ten homers with a .298 average over 170 plate appearances this past year. He should be in contention for a corner outfield job in 2021, making him a late-round pick in deeper leagues.
