Miami Marlins outfielder Corey Dickerson continues to be a player that some Phillies fans label as “the one that got away.”

The Phillies essentially let the former All-Star and Gold Glove Award winner walk in free agency after the 2019 season. Dickerson has not disappointed in his 103 games since entering Thursday, all with the Miami Marlins. Across 391 plate appearances during this stretch, Dickerson has slashed .269/.328/.401 with 14 doubles, three triples, nine home runs, and 29 RBI. The nine-year veteran entered Thursday batting .282 this season alone, along with a dozen RBI, in 51 games.

Dickerson shined in 34 games in red pinstripes after he was acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates at the July 31, 2019, deadline for international bonus slot money and a player to be named. He slashed .293/.307/.579 with 10 doubles, eight home runs, and 34 RBI.

Ranked as the 29th-most likely player to be traded in the coming weeks, Adams writes that the 32-year-old “feels likely to be on the market” since the Marlins have plenty of corner outfield depth.

Other former Phillies and/or spring training invitees who MLBTR considers could be on the trade block, but are not among the top 40 candidates, include: Tony Watson, Los Angeles Angels; Josh Harrison, Washington Nationals; Maikel Franco, Baltimore Orioles; Carlos Santana, Kansas City Royals; Wilson Ramos, Detroit Tigers; and J.A. Happ, Minnesota Twins.

Trade rumors will surely heat up more and more as the coming weeks pass by. Whether the Phillies will be buyers or sellers remains to be seen.
