Dickerson is dealing with mild plantar fasciitis in his left foot and his status moving forward is uncertain, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Dickerson exited Monday's game against the Padres after two unfruitful at bats. He was replaced by Drew Stubbs and Stubbs seems to be the likely candidate for extra reps in the outfield if Dickerson is forced to miss extended time. Until the Rockies shed some light on the situation, Dickerson should be considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game against the Padres.

Dickerson was removed from Monday's game against the Rockies after the third inning with an apparent hamstring injury, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Dickerson appeared to tweak his hamstring while racing out of the batter's box after grounding out. The Rockies were already facing a 9-0 deficit at the time of the incident, so it's possible that Dickerson was only removed from precautionary purposes. Manager Walt Weiss is expected to provide an update after the game on Dickerson, who should be viewed as day-to-day for the time being. Drew Stubbs entered the game to replace him in the outfield.

Dickerson will hit second in the Rockies' order Monday against the Padres, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Dickerson's move up the order could be in an attempt to shake things up with Justin Morneau struggling to begin the season. It's possible the lineup change becomes permanent, but that has yet to be determined. If that does occur, however, owners should reap the benefits of having Dickerson hitting in front of Troy Tulowitzki in the order.

Dickerson went 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Giants.

Dickerson plated the game's first run with his second-inning RBI single, then later collected his first triple of the season. The 25-year-old has done well to build off of his 2014 breakout thus far through eight games, batting .406 with two homers, 10 RBI, and eight runs scored.

Dickerson batted leadoff for the Rockies in Friday's win over the Cubs, going 1-for-4 with a walk, RBI, and run scored.

Though both Dickerson and Charlie Blackmon are left-handed hitters, it was Dickerson who not only stayed in the lineup with southpaw Travis Wood on the mound, but occupied a prominent spot in the Rockies' lineup. While Dickerson's career marks against lefties (.231/.296/.377 batting line over 142 plate appearances) make him unappealing as a daily option in such scenarios, if he's able to avoid falling into a platoon with Drew Stubbs, it will still provide Dickerson with opportunities to rake in the counting stats for those who own him in season-long formats.

Dickerson went 2-for-5 with a homer and four RBI in Monday's 10-0 romp over the Brewers.

The Rockies' lineups earlier in spring training seemed to suggest Dickerson would be tasked with batting second against right-handed pitchers, but he surprisingly slotted in at the sixth spot on Opening Day. The downgrade obviously didn't seem to impair him, as he swatted a two-run homer off Kyle Lohse in his first at-bat and would drive in two more on a fourth-inning double. The extra-base hits came with regularity last season for Dickerson, and with 500-plus plate appearances likely guaranteed in 2015, he'll have good odds of providing even loftier counting stats.

Dickerson (back) batted second in Saturday's spring training finale, but could occasionally bat seventh at times.

Obviously that sort of alignment would hurt Dickerson's value - it would necessarily entail fewer at-bats with fewer producers around him. Of course, if Dickerson is producing like he did last season, chances are that manager Walt Weiss would be less inclined to mess around with the order.

Dickerson was scratched from Wednesday's spring game, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Dickerson was slated to return to the lineup Wednesday after experiencing lower back tightness during Saturday's game, but it appears his return will be pushed back at least one more day. The 25-year-old earlier reported his back felt fine, so it's possible the team is just airing on the side of caution.

Dickerson returned to the lineup for Wednesday's spring training game and indicated his back is fine, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Dickerson exited Saturday's game early with lower-back tightness and has been sidelined since. While it's a good sign he's returned to the lineup, it's an issue to keep an eye on, as back injuries can resurface over the course of a season.

Dickerson left Saturday's spring training game after the second inning due to a tight lower back, the Denver Post reports.

Dickerson was scheduled to travel to play in Colorado's spring training game in Mexico on Sunday, but he may not make the trip if his back is sore. It's not thought the injury is serious enough to put his Opening Day status in doubt, but watch his progress.
