Corey Dickerson
Name: McKenzie Corey Dickerson
Born: May 22, 1989 in McComb, Miss. USA
High School: Brookhaven (Miss.) Academy
College: Meridian (Miss.) JC
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 210 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 8th round (260th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2010 (signed for $125,000)
He's the best juco prospect from the state since Desmond Jennings, a 10th-round pick of the Rays in 2006. Dickerson has the hitting ability to step right into the Bulldogs' lineup, having hit .474 with 19 home runs in 137 at-bats at Meridian. He has a pro body and present strength, he plays hard and his best tool is his bat, an attractive profile. He's a fringe-average runner and profiles as a left fielder. He had right labrum surgery in 2007, and his arm has never bounced back, with one evaluator giving him a well-below-average grade.
