PHILADELPHIA (AP) – The Phillies have acquired outfielder Corey Dickerson from the Pittsburgh Pirates for a player to be named and $250,000 in international signing money.
Dickerson is hitting .317 with 18 doubles, four homers and 25 RBIs with a .931 OPS in 43 games this season. He grounded out as a pinch hitter Wednesday in Pittsburgh’s 4-1 loss at Cincinnati and could become the first player to play for two teams in one day since Joel Youngblood in 1982 if he arrives in Philadelphia for a night game against San Francisco.
Dickerson won a Gold Glove last year and was an All-Star in 2017 for Tampa Bay.
Philadelphia designated outfielder Dylan Cozens to make room for Dickerson on the 40-man roster.
The Phillies added lefty starter Jason Vargas from the Mets on Monday.
