Summary - Dickerson possesses a solid skill set. The two way player showcased well in the outfield with one of the more consistent performances at the Summer Kickoff ID. The frame will continue to develop with maturity and he should be able to add good weight with additional player development. He showed a good feel for the barrel with consistent hard contact. He likes the ball up in the zone as indicated by his two hardest exit velo averages being in the upper quadrants of the zone via Trackman. OF footwork was consistent and he showed off a solid 82 mph OF velo with accuracy.
