ATLANTA – The Phillies will be without one of their hottest hitters for the final 14 games of the season.
Corey Dickerson was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday afternoon because of a broken left foot. He was replaced on the active roster by reliever Edubray Ramos.
Dickerson was acquired from Pittsburgh in July and he quickly became a valuable bat for the Phillies. He drove in 34 runs in his first 33 games with the club.
Dickerson fouled a ball off his foot Sept. 4 in Cincinnati. He aggravated the injury last week and was diagnosed with a bone bruise. Subsequent tests revealed a fracture.
Dickerson is a free agent at the end of the season.
