The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Dickerson is one of the bigger mysteries in the West. He has excellent tools--he's big and strong, an accomplished center fielder with arm strength, and an above-average runner--but hasn't hit since his freshman year. He hit a soft .242 with four homers this spring and was an easy target in the bottom third of Nevada's lineup. He hit .132 in the Cape Cod League last summer. Dickerson, whose Major League Scouting Bureau number of 56 (on a 20-80 scale) is the best in the state, was hurt last fall when he broke a rib diving for a ball. He lost instruction time and was slow getting out of the gate this spring. He has struggled to get his swing going again after hitting .317 with 11 homers as a freshman. Dickerson is projectable and should be a better pro than college player, but his poor performance over the last year will hurt him.
