Found July 11, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Baltimore Orioles scratched outfielder Chris Dickerson from last night’s lineup, as he was dealing with what’s been termed a strained left shoulder, according to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com. At this point, the extent of the injury isn’t clear, as it’s unknown how long Baltimore expects to be without Dickerson. The outfielder will be reevaluated today when he arrives at the yard. If he’s not responding to the team’s liking, manager Buck Showalter said Dickerson will undergo an MRI Friday to determine the extent of the damage. "Chris strained his left shoulder during batting practice and didn't like the way he felt afterward, and [we] decided it would be best to scratch him," Showalter said. "He's had some history of some challenges in that area. He's got some experience with it, so we'll see how it feels tomorrow. I'm hoping that it feels a lot better, but we're going to kind of lean on him because he's got a lot of experience with what it feels like when it's not right." The shoulder has bothered Dickerson in the past, and he’s had even more significant problems with his right shoulder. He told reporters that he suffered the injury during the last swing of his first round of batting practice. The hit he began feeling the discomfort on was a home run, but despite the result he said something didn’t feel right in his arm. He described it as a “radiating pain.” Dickerson has played a reserve role for the Orioles this season. He’s been produced in pivotal spots over the course of the year, but his totals aren’t all that impressive. Over 103 plate appearances, the 31-year-old has hit .253/.282/.424 with five doubles and four home runs. Dickerson was replaced by Nolan Reimold as the O’s designated hitter last night.
