Corey Dickerson’s Phillies Season Over With Fractured Foot
The Phillies have placed OF Corey Dickerson on the 60-day injured list with a fractured left foot, ending his season.
Taking his place on the roster is right-handed pitcher Edubry Ramos, who had been out since the middle of July with a right shoulder injury.
Dickerson has had quite an impact since coming on in a trade from the Pirates. In 34 games with the Phillies he is hitting .293 with eight homers and 34 RBI's. Overall this season, in 78 games, he is slashing 304/.341/.565 with 12 homers and 59 RBI.
Dikcerson also beings a Gold Glove with him to leftfield.
So the question becomes, do the Phillies bring him back?
The problem is where does he play, and how much money is he looking to make. He could be looking for a starting job on the free agent market, and the Phillies might not be able to offer that to him with Andrew McCutchen coming expected back from injury.
The team also has Jay Bruce, a left-handed bat, under control for next season and guys like Admam Haseley, Roman Quinn and possibly even Odubel Herrera back in the fold.
So even if the Phillies want to bring Dickerson back, and offer him the money he is looking for, he might get an opportunity to start somewhere else and bolt.
Chances are, we have seen the last of Dickerson in Philadelphia.
