Orioles designate Alex Liddi, add and recall Chris Dickerson

Greg Fiume

Does Dickerson have another burst of production to contribute down the stretch?

Even with defense being a hall mark of the 2013 Orioles, it's been no secret that the outfield's contribution has not exactly been the cornerstone of their success. Following the trades of L.J. Hoes and Xavier Avery along with the designation of Eric Thames, the Orioles active 40 man roster only contained Adam Jones, Nate McLouth, Nick Markakis, Mike Morse and Henry Urrutia. The last two seem like dire options, but shine when one contemplates the possibility of Wilson Betemit standing in left. To say that outfield depth has been a concern of late, would be no understatement.

With that in mind...

Liddi got off to a decent start in Norfolk after arriving in cavernous Harbor Park from the hitter friendly Pacific Coast League, but his contact issues soon caught up with him. The Orioles had sent over a #2 international bonus slot to the Mariners for Liddi and their #3.

For his part, Dickerson is probably one of the best defensive outfield options off the bench for Buck Showalter, but he's not been without his charms offensively. In a two week span in late May, Dickerson hit two late inning three run homers and had a two home run game the Yankees.
