Dickerson is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He will head to the bench with lefty J.A. Happ due up for the opposition, as he typically does against southpaws. Dickerson is 1-for-15 against lefties so far this season, and he's 0-fer against all pitching in his last four games. Steven Souza will serve as the DH on Saturday.

Dickerson, along with teammate Steven Souza, reached the five-homer mark to open the season in a franchise-record 18 games, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The offseason acquisition launched a two-run shot against the Yankees on Sunday as part of a five-homer barrage, allowing him to reach the milestone. Dickerson launched three gopher balls in his first six games before enduring a six-game homerless streak in mid-April, but now has a pair of dingers over the last six contests. He's slashing .246/.292/.574 over 61 at-bats.

Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 8-1 victory over the Yankees.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old slugger showed up prominently over the latter two games of the three-game set against the Yankees, hitting .500 (4-for-8) with a double, homer, three RBI, a run and a walk over that span. He's hit safely in four of his last five games, with two of those instances consisting of multi-hit efforts. The strikeout-prone Dickerson has also managed to cut down on his whiffs after notching one in eight of his first nine games, having only gone down on strikes four times in the following 28 at-bats.

Dickerson went 3-for-4 with a double and RBI in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Yankees.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The left-handed slugger put together his second multi-hit effort over the last four games, and doubled for the third time in four contests as well. He also has four RBI over his last three outings, and is now slashing a respectable and improving .268/.293/.625 line after a very slow first week of the season.

Dickerson is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With left-handed David Price on the mound for Boston, the Rays will unsurprisingly deploy a righty-heavy lineup. Dickerson hasn't strictly been used as a platoon player, but he only has nine at-bats (and no hits) against lefties this season.

Dickerson went 2-for-4 at the dish, hitting a double and his fourth home run of the season during Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Red Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It was a good night for the 26-year-old, as he had been hitless in the 10 at-bats prior to the contest. Dickerson hasn't made great contact this season, hitting just .227, but he's shown a bit of pop with the home runs. He hit .312 and .304 the last two seasons in Colorado, so there's hope that his average will rise as the season progresses.

Dickerson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dickerson will sit for the second time in the three-game series with the White Sox rolling out their third straight left-handed starting pitcher. His absence from the lineup will allow Steve Pearce to occupy the cleanup spot.

Dickerson is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Manager Kevin Cash has all but rid his lineup of lefty bats to counter starter Chris Sale, with the lone exception being Kevin Kiermaier in the No. 8 spot. Dickerson has logged just three at-bats against left-handed pitching this season, and the platoon-conscious Rays figure to continue shielding him heavily throughout the season.

Dickerson, a National League transplant, is still getting acclimated to the designated hitter role,Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The offseason acquisition from the Rockies has already slugged three homers over the first six games, but had only played 10 games at the DH spot with Colorado over three seasons of interleague play. The biggest adjustment for Dickerson has been devising a routine between at-bats that help him remain sharp for his next trip to the batter's box."I'm getting a little better at it, gradually getting there," Dickerson said. "I'm trying to get away from everything a little bit. But I like to watch the pitcher some." The 26-year-old is 3-for-15 with two homers from the DH spot in 2016.
