Another day, another trade: Rays deal Dickerson to Pirates

Just a day after Steven Souza, Jr., was dealt out of town, Corey Dickerson is sent packing.

Another day, another trade for the Tampa Bay Rays. This time, the team dealt outfielder Corey Dickerson to the Pirates.

In exchange, the Rays get right-handed pitcher Daniel Hudson, minor league infielder Tristan Gray and cash.

Dickerson, who was an All-Star for the American League last year is the latest Rays starter to be traded. On Wednesday, Tampa Bay traded Steven Souza, Jr., to Arizona. And a few days before that, they sent starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi to the Twins.

Dickerson had been designated for assignment last week.

Hudson, 30, went 2-7 with a 4.38 ERA (61.2-IP, 30-ER) in a career-high 71 appearances in 2017, his only season with the Pirates. Gray was selected by the Pirates in the 13th round of the 2017 June Draft out of Rice University.
