Miami’s Mattingly unconcerned about Corey Dickerson’s swing

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Miami manager Don Mattingly isn’t concerned that free-agent acquisition Corey Dickerson’s is currently flirting with .150.

In fact, Mattingly’s barely noticed.

“Corey’s a guy I haven’t really paid, to be honest with you, a ton of attention to because I just know he’s always hit,” Mattingly said.

Dickerson appreciates the trust.

It don’t mean a thing that he ain’t got that swing!

Sources: Marlins, OF Corey Dickerson reach 2-year, $17.5 million deal

The Miami Marlins have reached an agreement with free agent outfielder Corey Dickerson on a $17.5 million, two-year contract, sources have confirmed to ESPN.

MLB Network first reported on the deal between the sides.

The 30-year-old Dickerson hit .304 with 12 homers and 59 RBIs last season for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies, who acquired him on July 31. Dickerson had 42 extra-base hits and a .565 slugging percentage.

So, how long before they trade him for nothing much?

Five Best MLB Free-Agent Bargains

Part of the fun in the early offseason is the optimism teams have about signing the franchise-changing free agent. The rumor mill could lead you to believe two dozen clubs have a genuine shot at signing Gerrit Cole, Stephen Strasburg or Anthony Rendon.

That isn’t reality. But there’s still hope for teams that don’t want to dole out nine-figure contracts to free agents. DJ LeMahieu (two years, $24 million) and Josh Donaldson (1 year, $23 million) were perhaps the two best signings last winter. Both signed for less than 10% of one (1) Bryce Harper or one (1) Manny Machado.

So where are there bargains to be found this winter? Let’s have a look.

So, are these the best options of this nature, and, if not, who is?
