Dickerson is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the A's, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dickerson is just 1-for-22 against left-handers this season, and the Rays are employing a right-heavy lineup Friday against A's starter Rich Hill, so Dickerson will open Friday's game on the bench. Brandon Guyer will serve as the Rays' designated hitter in Dickerson's place.

Dickerson went 1-for-6 with a game-tying grand slam in Wednesday's extra-innings loss to the Mariners.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dickerson entered Wednesday in the midst of a 2-for-38 stretch that saw his average tumble from .259 to .183. Still, the hard-swinging slugger is always a home run threat. Down 4-0 in the sixth, the Rays managed to load the bases with one out for Dickerson, who wasted no time, taking a hack at a 77-mph curveball. Once the ball landed a projected 409 feet from home plate, according to Statcast, Dickerson had his eighth home run of the season and first career grand slam. Dickerson's last four hits have been home runs.

Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Mariners.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It was his second long ball in the last four games, and notably came off Felix Hernandez. Despite his solid power numbers in his first season in a Rays uniform, Dickerson is currently hitting under the Mendoza Line, and has just three hits in his first 21 at-bats of May. His current 26.7 percent strikeout rate is also his highest figure in that category at the major league level.

Dickerson went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer in the 5-2 victory over the Angels on Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The homer broke a 0-for-23 streak for Dickerson. Coincidentally, his last hit was also a home run on April 24. Dickerson is just 16-for-81 (.198) this season, but six of those 16 hits are bombs.

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.
