Team MVP: Corey Dickerson, LF.

Corey Dickerson made a name for himself during the 2014 season. After starting the season on the Major League roster, Dickerson was sent to Triple-A to get more at-bats. What a mistake that was. Personally, I believed Dickerson should have started over Charlie Blackmon in the outfield, but Blackmon’s month of April was unmatched.

Corey finished the season hitting .312/.364/.567 with 136 hits in 436 at-bats. The left fielder would end up finishing with 27 doubles, 6 triples, 24 home runs, and 76 RBI’s. Not bad for a guy who didn’t start regularly until the second half of the season.

Dickerson proved to be one of the team’s most reliable hitter and his offensive numbers sure shocked us all — including the 24 home runs. Dickerson proved he is an everyday player, which will put the pressure on Walt Weiss and company come next season with a deep outfield containing Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackmon, Michael Cuddyer, Drew Stubbs, and Brandon Barnes.
