Braves outright Alex Dickerson to Gwinnett

Braves outright Alex Dickerson to Gwinnett – In a move that will be overlooked by most, the Braves announced today that they have outrighted Alex Dickerson to Gwinnett. Earlier this week, the Braves were forced to Designate Dickerson for Assignment to make room for Ronald Acuña. I wasn’t thrilled, because it gave every other team the opportunity to claim him, but he cleared waivers, which allowed the Braves to stash him as organization depth.

Braves activate Ronald Acuna Jr., designate Alex Dickerson

Ronald Acuna Jr. is back. The Braves announced Thursday morning that they’ve reinstated their star outfielder from the 10-day injured list — the culmination of a nine-and-a-half-month rehabilitation process following an ACL tear sustained last July. It’s a bit of a surprise, as the Braves had been targeting a May 6 return according to manager Brian Snitker, though Snitker acknowledged at the time of that statement that the date was not set in stone. In a corresponding roster move, Atlanta has designated outfielder Alex Dickerson for assignment.

Braves' Alex Dickerson: Loses roster spot with Acuna back

Atlanta designated Dickerson for assignment Thursday. With Ronald Acuna (knee) cleared to return from his minor-league rehab assignment to make his 2022 MLB debut Thursday against the Cubs, Dickerson will lose his spot on the 40-man roster and 28-man active roster. The 31-year-old had been filling a large-side platoon role at designated hitter for most of the season, turning in a paltry .121/.194/.212 slash line over 36 plate appearances. Even if Dickerson goes unclaimed off waivers, Atlanta could release him rather than outrighting him to the minors, which would allow him to pursue a more favorable opportunity elsewhere.

Braves' Alex Dickerson: Second straight start vs. righty

Dickerson will serve as Atlanta's designated hitter and No. 6 batter in Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Dickerson will be included in the starting nine against a right-handed pitcher (Mark Leiter) for the second game in a row, suggesting he's usurped Orlando Arcia as Atlanta's preferred option at DH. Both Dickerson and Arcia will see their opportunities at both DH and in the corner outfield take a hit once Ronald Acuna (knee) is cleared to make his 2022 debut, possibly as soon as this weekend.

Braves' Alex Dickerson: Clubs first homer of 2022

Dickerson went 1-for-3 with a walk, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 9-7 loss to the Marlins. His fourth-inning blast off Elieser Hernandez gave Atlanta a short-lived 4-2 lead in the wild contest. Dickerson hasn't seen much playing time or success to begin the season, as Saturday's homer was his first of the year and only his second hit in 25 at-bats.

Braves' Alex Dickerson: Absent from lineup vs. righty

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers. The lefty-hitting Dickerson's 1-for-21 start to the season has seemingly resulted in him losing hold of his strong-side platoon role at designated hitter. He'll be on the bench Wednesday for the third straight game, with his latter two absences from the lineup coming against right-handed starting pitchers in Walker Buehler and Tony Gonsolin. Dickerson's struggles at the plate have allowed Orlando Arcia to settle into a near-everyday role, though both Arcia and Dickerson will likely see their opportunities dwindle as soon as Ronald Acuna (knee) is ready to return from the 10-day injured list.

Braves' Alex Dickerson: Idle against lefty

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals. Washington is deploying a lefty starting pitcher (Patrick Corbin) for the second day in a row, so the lefty-hitting Dickerson will remain on the bench. Platoon mate Orlando Arcia gets another turn as Atlanta's designated hitter.

Braves' Alex Dickerson: Idle versus lefty

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals. The lefty-hitting Dickerson served as Atlanta's designated hitter for three of the team's first four games, going hitless with a walk across 10 plate appearances. He'll take a seat Monday with southpaw Josh Rogers on the mound for Washington, allowing the righty-hitting Orlando Arcia to pick up a start. Atlanta appears content to lean on a platoon of Dickerson and Arcia at the DH spot to begin the season, but once Ronald Acuna (knee) is back in action, both players will likely see their opportunities dwindle.

Outfielder Alex Dickerson to compete for spot on Braves’ opening-day roster

When the lockout ended, Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos knew he would need to act quickly to add outfield depth. Along with re-signing outfielder Eddie Rosario to a two-year deal, the Braves on Wednesday announced they signed outfielder Alex Dickerson to a non-guaranteed, major-league contract worth $1 million. To make room for Dickerson on the 40-man roster, the Braves transferred right-hander Mike Soroka to the 60-day injured list.

Braves' Alex Dickerson: Signs with Atlanta

Dickerson signed a one-year, $1 million contract with Atlanta on Wednesday. Dickerson underwhelmed in 2021, as he slashed .233/.304/.420 with 13 home runs, 38 RBI and 37 runs across 111 appearances with the Giants. The 31-year-old will attempt to right the ship on his major-league deal with Atlanta, but he'll presumably have to compete for a roster spot during spring training since his salary isn't guaranteed. Even if he's able to make the team's Opening Day roster, Dickerson will presumably take on a backup role after Atlanta signed Eddie Rosario on Wednesday.
