Spring Position Battles Update…

With the news that Jonny Gomes was cut from the Reds, it looks like Chris Dickerson has won the starting LF job in Cincinnati.

Now there is still a chance that Dickerson may still platoon with Jerry Hairston Jr in LF, but for right now it seems Dickerson will be starting in LF for the Reds.

Chris Dickerson goes from projected winner to winner.

Reds LF, Chris Dickerson vs. Jonny Gomes. Dickerson, who in his end of year audition last year tore up the baseball by hitting .306 with 6 hr’s and 15 rbi in just 31 games with the Reds. He hasn’t slowed down this spring has he has hit .325/2/6 with 5 sb’s in 40 ab’s. Gomes, who was signed in the offseason can hit the long ball and also can hit left-handed pitching (.266/25/61/.369 in 414 ab’s). With the Reds now favoring speed and defense, it looks like Dickerson might have the edge heading into opening day. Winner – Chris Dickerson
