Corey Dickerson returns from the DL!
According to the Colorado Rockies’ transactions page, they have activated Corey Dickerson from the disabled list and placed him on their active roster.
Dickerson, of course, has lost more or less the entire season after dealing with plantar fasciitis earlier this year, and then more recently struggling with a broken rib he sustained in one of his first games back on the active roster from the plantar injury several months ago.

A year ago, Dickerson was poised to be a future National League batting champion, and one year later he spent the majority of the season on the disabled list. Let’s hope this was, in fact, a blemish on the mark of a man who will soon become a very, very good player, and not something indicative of future health issues like the Colorado Rockies saw all too often with Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez.
Dickerson side note: I took my girlfriend to the Isotopes’ game in Sacramento on Sunday afternoon, and she decided she wanted to get some autographs before the game (she’s never done it before). Corey Dickerson (and Trevor Story, Roger Bernadina, Angelys Nina, Aaron Laffey, and Tim Smalling!) all signed her ball, so she was pretty happy about that.
