Pirates Trade Corey Dickerson To Phils

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Cincinnati Reds David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Corey Dickerson is heading across the state, getting traded from the Pirates to the Phillies.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan was the first to report.

The Pirates will receive a player to be named later and international bonus pool money in exchange. Phillies beat reporter Todd Zolecki was the first to report.

Dickerson was one of the Pirates’ best players since being acquired in February of 2018. In his year and a half in Pittsburgh, he had a .303 batting average with an .829 OPS in 675 plate appearances. He also picked up 17 home runs and 80 RBI while playing gold glove winning defense in left field. He was worth 4.2 bWAR in his 179 games as a Pirate.

Dickerson missed two months this season with a shoulder injury and has been used sparingly lately, nursing a groin injury. He had a .931 OPS in 141 plate appearances entering today.
