Yeah, I don't think he's a bad hitter. His AAA numbers show him as a guy with pop but struggles getting on base. I think he could probably OPS .750 in the bigs, but is that good enough for a platoon LF? I also thought he was supposed to be a poor fielder, am I wrong on that?
Basically, I like Nix as a bench guy, but at this point I prefer Dickerson as a starter.
