Pirates get All Star Dickerson from Rays

The Pirates acquired Dickerson from the Rays on Thursday, sending back veteran righthander Daniel Hudson, minor league infielder Tristan Gray and cash. He did fall off a bit in the second half, batting.241/.282/.408 with 10 home runs and 20 RBIs. So some sort of platoon is obvious for Pirates manager Clint Hurdle, if he deploys Dickerson properly.

Cron. The Dickerson trade is part of a massive transition period for the Rays, who have also parted ways with the likes of Evan Longoria, Steven Souza and Jake Odorizzi this offseason.

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez reports that the Rays have agreed to a one-year contract with free agent outfielder Carlos Gomez.


Dickerson should step right in as Pittsburgh's primary left fielder, over Adam Frazier, Jordan Luplow, Michael Saunders or Daniel Nava in place of the departed Andrew McCutchen. He played 55 games as the team's designated hitter.

Hudson went 2-7 with a 4.38 earned run average in 71 relief appearances with the Pirates last season.

Gray, 21, hit.269 with seven home runs and 37 RBIs for the West Virginia Black Bears of the short-season New York-Penn League in his first minor league action after being selected by the Pirates in the 13th round of last year's draft.
