The Nats Report was the first media outlet this morning to break the story that the Washington Nationals had agreed to terms with outfielder Corey Dickerson. Now, the Washington Nationals just made it official in a press release.
“The Washington Nationals agreed to terms on a one-year contract with outfielder Corey Dickerson and designated right-handed pitcher Andrés Machado for assignment on Tuesday. Nationals President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement.”
Last season, Dickerson hit .267 with 17 doubles, a triple, six home runs, 36 RBI, and 12 walks in 96 games for the St. Louis Cardinals. He collected two hits in six at-bats (.333) during the 2022 Postseason.
Dickerson has hit .300 or better in a season four times in his career (2014–15, 2018–19) and has hit 20 or more home runs in a season three times in his career (2014, 2016–17), including a career-high 27 homers in his 2017 All-Star campaign with Tampa Bay.
A native of McComb, Miss., Dickerson was selected in the eighth round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft out of Meridian Community College.
