For the Colorado Rockies the 2013 season has to be one where the perspective matters a lot when measuring the success it has brought. If they look only at the way the team went about winning and losing during this season, it surely could be looked at as anything from a simple disappointment to an abject failure. If they step back and look at what their franchise has done this season as it pertains to how well they can play next season and the one after that, things look much better. On the long list of promising factors heading into next season is the very good play of outfielder Corey Dickerson.
Dickerson was called up for the second time recently and this time he is making the most of his time. His last ten games have him posting a .345 average with six runs scored and a couple of RBI. There have been more productive major leaguers over that time period but this kid is young and could really finally be showing that he is bringing his minor league potential over to the MLB side of playing.
In the minors Dickerson has been a .300 plus hitter that has always been good for 20-30 homers and 80 plus RBI. That might not be what he throws out next season but assuming the Rockies and Walt Weiss give him a solid look in Spring Training next year he could very definitely provide a very tough obstacle for a veteran outfielder to get passed in order to earn playing time. Dickerson is going to be a good productive player at the big league level and the first season towards that end goal will probably be 2014.
