Pirates Acquire Dickerson From Rays

Pirates Acquire Dickerson From Rays

The Pirates sent right-handed reliever Daniel Hudson, minor league infielder Tristan Gray and cash considerations to the Rays as part of the deal announced Thursday.

There are 36 days until Rays opening day versus Boston on March 29.

Tampa Bay raised some eyebrows when they designated Dickerson for assignment on Saturday following the acquisition of C.J. Cron. The outfielder/DH hit.282/.325/.490 with a career-best 27 home runs and 2.6 fWAR in 629 PA previous year, making the All-Star game. So some sort of platoon is obvious for Pirates manager Clint Hurdle, if he deploys Dickerson properly. He did fall off a bit in the second half, batting.241/.282/.408 with 10 home runs and 20 RBIs.

The Rays moved quickly to fill the void created by Tuesday's trade of RF Steven Souza Jr., agreeing to a one-year deal Wednesday afternoon with veteran OF Carlos Gomez. Gomez is expected to play right field in Tampa.

Hudson, 30, posted a 4.38 ERA and struck out 66 batters across 61 2/3 innings in 71 games with Pittsburgh last season after joining the club on a two-year, $11 million contract that will pay him $5.5 million in 2018.

Gray was a 13th-round draft pick out of Rice by the Pirates in 2017.
