Dickerson designated for assignment

In order to make room on the 40-man roster for Russ Canzler, the Yankees designated Chris Dickerson for assignment. They have 10 days to trade, release or waive him. Dickerson batted .266/.352/.407 in 599 plate appearances. He walked a lot, he had speed on the bases and played pretty good defense.

I hope if he does clear waivers and elects to go the free agent route that someone scoops him up. He seemed like a cool dude who was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and who stood on the wrong side of the plate. Too many left-handed outfielders, no room in the lineup.
