The Pittsburgh Pirates activated outfielder Corey Dickerson from the 10-day disabled list on Saturday afternoon. To make room for him on the 25-man roster, Christopher Bostick was optioned to Indianapolis.
Dickerson has been out since straining his left hamstring back on July 24th in a game against the Cleveland Indians. He was placed on the disabled list four days later, but the move was made retroactive to July 25th, so the Pirates were able to activate him from the DL today. He was hitting .318/.351/.517 through his first 91 games at the time of the injury. Dickerson had a 1.253 OPS during the month of July.
Bostick was up with the Pirates for 20 games last season. This was his first stint with them this year and he went 0-for-2 in two games. He was called up on Tuesday after Austin Meadows was traded.
