Dickerson had surprisingly been designated for assignment by Tampa Bay over the weekend after being selected as the American League's starting designated hitter in last year's All-Star Game. The outfielder/DH hit.282/.325/.490 with a career-best 27 home runs and 2.6 fWAR in 629 PA a year ago, making the All-Star game. He did fall off a bit in the second half, batting.241/.282/.408 with 10 home runs and 20 RBIs.
Dickerson gives the Pirates a veteran to compete with rookie Jordan Luplow for playing time in left.
In addition to announcing the deal early Thursday, the Pirates also released a statement from general manager Neal Huntington regarding the acquisition of Dickerson.
The Rays found a trade partner in the Pirates, who gave up a set-up man and a raw prospect.
