By on 7/12/2014 09:30:00 PM

Cleveland Indians left fielder Chris Dickerson was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup after he complained of left hamstring soreness following Friday night's game, according to Alec Shirkey of Indians manager Terry Francona, however, does not consider the injury anything serious. Dickerson has gone 8 for 17 in five games for the Indians.

Dickerson, 32, was traded to the Indians by the Pittsburgh Pirates for a PTBNL on July 7 after hitting .309/.407/.479  in 65 games at Triple-A Indianapolis (Pirates minor-league affiliate).

Due to injuries and demotions, Chris Dickerson has never in seven major-league seasons played more than 100 games, and several seasons less than 50 as he had ankle surgery in 2008 and wrist surgery in 2010. Originally drafted by the Cincinnate Reds in 2003 (16th round), Dickerson made his debut  August 12, 2008. In August 2010 the Reds traded him to the Milwaukee Brewers for Jim Edmonds. The Brewers traded him to the New York Yankees in March 2011 for Sergio Mitre. The Yankees released him in January 2013, and he signed as a free agent with the Baltimore Orioles. Again a free agent after the 2013 season, he signed a minor-league deal with the Pirates in January 2014.
