Padres' Alex Dickerson (back) scheduled to meet with spine specialist
San Diego Padres outfielder Alex Dickerson (back) will see a spine specialist, manager Andy Green said Wednesday.
Dickerson recently suffered a setback in regards to his back injury and it continues to seem increasingly unlikely that he's ready for Opening Day. The Padres are hopeful an alternative opinion will help further along Dickerson's recovery.
Across an expected 408 plate appearances in 2017, numberFire's metrics project Dickerson to post a .257 batting average with 11 home runs and 48 RBI's.
