Rockies Preparing to Place Dickerson on DL

Tuesday, May 19

According to’s Thomas Harding, the Rockies have called up Ben Paulsen ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies with the expectation that Dickerson will go on the 15-day disabled list:

The plantar fasciitis isn’t a new issue for Dickerson. Harding reported after the 25-year-old left Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that it’s “been an issue since late in spring training.”

Despite the injury, Dickerson has appeared in 33 of Colorado’s 35 games through Monday. He’s played well with a .306/.342/.523 slash line and 12 extra-base hits in 111 at-bats. 

Dickerson was a breakout star for the Rockies last season, hitting .312/.364/.567 with 24 home runs in 131 games. The Rockies have been struggling in 2015, owning a 13-22 record and sitting in last place in the National League West. 

Losing Dickerson for any length of time only compounds the problems facing Colorado as it tries to escape the basement in the division.
