Pirates acquire All-Star Corey Dickerson from the Rays

Dickerson was designated for assignment after the Rays bevy of moves that included acquiring C.J.

The 28-year-old slashed.282/.325/.490 with a career-high 27 home runs and 62 RBIs last season, ranking second on the Rays with an.815 OPS.

We've traded OF Corey Dickerson to the Pirates in exchange for RH Daniel Hudson, minor league INF Tristan Gray and cash considerations.

The Pirates traded Andrew McCutchen to the Giants this offseason, so Dickerson could slot into one of the corner outfield spots in his absence.

Hudson, who turns 31 on March 9, made 71 appearances for Pittsburgh last season and had a 4.38 ERA and 1.459 WHIP in 61 2/3 innings. He hit.269/.329/.486 with 12 doubles, six triples, seven homers and five steals. More than likely, Gray figures to go to Low-A Hudson Valley to start the season. Dickerson gives them an established, above-average bat that can cover left field for them nearly every day.

"And I feel bad for the guys this year who were probably counting on Corey to put up numbers to help the team win". He still has a year of arbitration remaining before becoming a free agent after the 2019 season.
