Debut Details
September 2, in a 6-5 loss to the Padres in the first game of a doubleheader and a 7-2 loss in that doubleheader's nightcap. In Game One, he was the starting left fielder, batting seventh and going 0-for-3 with a walk. In the second inning, facing left-handed starter Clayton Richard, he flew out to center. He flew out to center again in the fourth inning. In the sixth, with one on and two outs he was intentionally walked. In the ninth, facing left-handed reliever Brad Hand, with one on and no outs, he struck out swinging. He also appeared in Game Two, coming on to pinch-hit for starting left fielder Andre Ethier in the eighth inning and popping out to shortstop with two outs.

Player Notes
Drafted out of Sonoma State, the San Francisco native made it through many of the early spring training cuts as a non-roster invitee, keeping the Dodgers' eye until he was reassigned March 29. Though not on the tip of most prospect watchers' tongues like some of his organization mates, Dickson has made a steady rise through the ranks thanks to being able to hit for solid average, contribute with consistent moderate power and always chip in with a good number of extra-base hits, along with having terrific makeup and attitude. In seven pro seasons he's slashed for a .279/.349/.491 line in double-digits in homers each of his six full seasons, with his 24 at Oklahoma City this year a career-best. In 2016 with the same club he hit .328 with 18 home runs, 64 RBIs and 28 doubles after hitting .262 with 13 homers and 50 RBIs in his Triple-A debut in 2015.
