Corey Dickerson Signs With 8th Major League Team

Another free agent outfield bat is off the market, as Corey Dickerson has agreed to join his 8th different team in his 10-year career, signing a one-year deal with the Washington Nationals. 

It's a $2.25M deal for the 33-year-old. It includes performance bonuses that can push it to $3M.

Per Nationals reporter Mark Zuckerman, Dickerson fills a hole in left field for Washington, and allows another free agent recruit, Dominic Smith, to stick at his more natural position of 1B. Dickerson hasn't, however, been a full-time player since 2017-18.

He is a left-handed bat, who has hit 118 of his 134 career home runs off right-handed pitchers. He has an .836 OPS vs. RHPs, but only .636 against lefties. 

And perhaps the Nats were remembering this mammoth blast from the 2022 season:

Dickerson spent last season with the St. Louis Cardinals, batting .267 with a .698 OPS, with six homers and 36 RBIs in 96 games.
