According to a source, the Washington Nationals agree to a multi-year deal with outfielder Corey Dickerson.
Dickerson was selected by the Rockies in the eighth round of the 2010 Major League Baseball draft and made his MLB debut in 2013. Dickerson was an MLB All-Star in 2017 and won a Gold Glove Award in 2018.
On March 18, 2022, Dickerson signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the St. Louis Cardinals. Over three games from August 23 to 25, Dickerson recorded 10 hits in 10 consecutive at-bats, giving him the longest such streak by a Cardinal in the expansion.
Last year with the Cardinals, Dickerson had an average of .267 with six homeruns, 36 RBIs, and an OPS of .699 from 281 at-bats. Last year, Dickerson played in left and right field and did some DH’ing. This gives the Nationals some extra reliability in the outfield and also gives the Nationals a solid DH option.
