Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Rehab assignment paused

Dickerson (calf) had his rehab assignment paused Friday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Dickerson resumed his rehab assignment Tuesday, but he's still dealing with a calf injury and is being examined further by the team's medical staff. Although he took batting practice Friday, it's not yet clear when he'll be able to head back to Triple-A Memphis to resume his rehab stint.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Resumes rehab Tuesday

Dickerson (calf) went 2-for-2 with a double for Triple-A Memphis in its game Tuesday versus Indianapolis. Dickerson's rehab assignment hit a setback over the weekend in the form of renewed soreness in his strained left calf, but he was only out for a couple of days. The veteran outfielder will likely need a few more rehab games, including potentially a start or two in the field, before he'd be ready to be activated from the 10-day injured list.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Dealing with setback

Dickerson is experiencing renewed soreness in his strained left calf, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Dickerson went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI for Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, but the recurring soreness in his calf kept him out of the lineup over the weekend. Goold reports that the outfielder will try to resume his rehab Tuesday, but he'll likely need multiple appearances to prove his health and get his timing back at the plate. As such, it seems unlikely he'll be back during the upcoming four-game road series versus the Brewers.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Starting rehab assignment Thursday

Dickerson (calf) will report to Triple-A Memphis to begin a rehab assignment Thursday. Dickerson has been sidelined since exiting a June 4 game against the Cubs with a left calf strain. He had been starting to see more frequent starts as a designated hitter and corner outfielder prior to getting hurt, but Dickerson will likely have to settle for a lesser role once he's healthy. Since Dickerson was deactivated, the Cardinals have returned Tyler O'Neill and Dylan Carlson from the 10-day injured list, while rookies Nolan Gorman and Brendan Donovan have established themselves as everyday players.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Could begin assignment next week

Dickerson (calf) said Tuesday that he's hopeful to begin a minor-league rehab assignment next week, if not sooner, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Dickerson's comments came after he took part in straight-line running on the field for the second day in a row. The 33-year-old has also been taking batting practice of late, but running the curves of the basepaths and showing he can change direction in the outfield may be the final hurdles he needs to clear in his recovery from a left calf strain before the Cardinals send him out on a rehab assignment. With both Tyler O'Neill and Dylan Carlson beating him back from the 10-day injured list, Dickerson will likely have to settle for a reserve role once he's activated.

What should the St. Louis Cardinals do with Corey Dickerson?

What should the St. Louis Cardinals do with Corey Dickerson? They have a very interesting decision to make once he returns from the Injured List. I liked a lot of what the St. Louis Cardinals did this winter. They signed a mid-level rotation arm, added three low-cost bullpen options, and brought back the vast majority of their offense while adding Albert Pujols on a cheap one-year deal.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Not starting nightcap

Dickerson (calf) isn't starting the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Dickerson exited Saturday's matinee in the middle of the second inning due to left calf discomfort and will be out of the lineup for the second game of the twin bill. Brendan Donovan is starting in left field and batting fifth, and Dickerson should tentatively be considered day-to-day.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Hits pair of homers

Dickerson went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs in Friday's 14-5 win over the Cubs. Dickerson hadn't gone yard all year, but he snapped the power drought with solo shots in the fourth and ninth innings. It's been a slow start at the dish for the outfielder, who is slashing just .194/.245/.286 with 11 RBI, 11 runs scored and three doubles through 106 plate appearances. He shouldn't be expected to see much more than a part-time role, mainly against right-handed pitching, especially once Dylan Carlson (hamstring) and Tyler O'Neill (shoulder) are ready to return.

Dickerson exited the first game of Saturday's doubleheader due to left calf discomfort, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Dickerson talked with a trainer for several minutes after pulling up on his way to right field in the middle of the second inning, and he was ultimately removed from the game. He should tentatively be considered day-to-day after receiving his diagnosis, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Saturday's nightcap.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Sits against lefty

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres, John Denton of MLB.com reports. The lefty-hitting Dickerson was on the bench Monday against a right-handed starting pitcher (Nick Martinez), but his absence Tuesday comes with a lefty (Blake Snell) toeing the rubber for San Diego. Dickerson will likely continue to sit regularly versus southpaws, but he may still have a path to at least a part-time role against right-handed pitching, especially while both Tyler O'Neill (shoulder) and Dylan Carlson (hamstring) remain on the injured list.

Dickerson is not in the starting lineup for Monday's contest versus the Padres, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Second straight start in left field

Dickerson will start in left field and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Pirates, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Dickerson has primarily been deployed as part of a platoon at designated hitter with Albert Pujols this season, but the latter will now pick up his second straight start in left field. With Tyler O'Neill (shoulder) on the injured list and Dylan Carlson (hamstring) at risk of joining him there, Dickerson could be in store for a near-everyday role in the corner outfield in the short term.

Cardinals' Corey Dickerson: Sits after three-strikeout game

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets. Dickerson picked up his second straight start in Wednesday's 11-4 loss, getting the nod in left field over the slumping Tyler O'Neill. He went hitless while striking out three times in four at-bats, dropping his season average to .185. Neither O'Neill (.193 average) nor Dickerson is making a strong case for an everyday role, so manager Oliver Marmol could be inclined to opt for a rotation in left field and designated hitter until a hot bat emerges. Albert Pujols will enter the lineup Thursday while both O'Neill and Dickerson are on the bench.
