Alex Dickerson was named the Eastern League Player of the Month for July.

Alex Dickerson has been named the Eastern League Player of the Month for the month of July. The first baseman hit for a .413/.440/.683 line in 104 at-bats last month, with ten doubles and six homers to win the award. Dickerson was also the Pirates Prospects Player of the Month for July, as his numbers were the best in the entire minor league system among hitters.

Dickerson led the league in nearly every offensive category during the month of July, including average (.413), runs scored (23), hits (43), extra-base hits (16), total bases (71), RBI (27), slugging percentage (.683) and OPS (1.123). He had 14 multi-hit games in July, with two four-hit days.  He also enjoyed a season-best nine-game hitting streak during the month from July 13-23 where he hit .486 (17-for-35) with five straight multi-hit efforts to start the streak.

As of today, Dickerson is among the Eastern League leaders in average (.297, 8th), doubles (31, 1st), extra-base hits (48, 1st), total bases (188, 4th) and slugging percentage (.516, 3rd).  His 15 home runs are tied for the team lead while his 62 RBI are a team-best. Since June 1, Dickerson has hit .351 (74-for-211) with 32 extra-base hits (10 doubles, 12 homers), 47 RBI and 41 runs scored in 56 games.  That average is third-best in all of Double-A as of Monday.

    Would love for this to be a true break out season for Alex, if so, who would you play at 1b, Dickerson or Lambo? It seems to me that Lambo might be the better 1b of the 2.

    pirate american : I have seen both players in action many times,and believe me,there is no comparison at 1st base. Lambo has a LOT to learn about that position,and I mean a LOT ! Offensively,Dickerson,though he doesn’t walk much, is a better hitter also. His SO rate is probably 10 points lower than Andrew’s.

    Gotta go Lambo short term but Dickerson looks good for future! Hope Lambo gets his shot soon.
