Tampa Bay raised some eyebrows when they designated Dickerson for assignment on Saturday following the acquisition of C.J. Cron. Dickerson posted solid overall numbers in 2017, hitting.282/.325/.490 with 27 homers in 629 trips to the plate.

In trading Souza to Arizona on Tuesday as part of a three-team deal with the Yankees, Rays officials said they would be aggressive in finding a replacement and hinted they could reinvest some of the money they had trimmed from the payroll. "Corey is a driven player who will also add a quality presence to our clubhouse".

Dickerson, who was an All-Star for the American League previous year is the latest Rays starter to be traded. He still has a year of arbitration remaining before becoming a free agent after the 2019 season.

Dickerson should step right in as Pittsburgh's primary left fielder, over Adam Frazier, Jordan Luplow, Michael Saunders or Daniel Nava in place of the departed Andrew McCutchen.

Gray was selected by the Pirates in the 13 round of the 2017 draft. He received playing time at both second base and shortstop.
