Dickerson was forced to exit Tuesday’s game vs. the Rangers due to back tightness, and after the game, manager Gabe Kapler told reporters after the game that the issue isn’t serious. That said, Dickerson was placed on the 10-day IL on Wednesday. He’ll join Mike Yastrezmski on the sidelines, which leaves the team without two of their top left-handed hitters. Evan Longoria is also on the IL, so the team is thinner than usual in the infield.
Mike Tauchman, Steven Duggar, and LaMonte Wade will start in the three outfield spots for Wednesday’s contest vs. the Rangers. They’re taking on right-hander Kyle Gibson, who has been excellent for the Rangers this season. He’s pitched to a 2.06 ERA through his first 11 starts after pitching to a 5.35 ERA in 12 starts with the team last year. This game is listed essentially as a coin-flip on FanDuel Sportsbook, with the Rangers listed as -110 favorites.
