Basically, I like Nix as a bench guy, but at this point I prefer Dickerson as a starter.
He's supposed to be a good defender. He came up as a CF and UZR has him positive in his spotty time in the majors.
As for the hitting, I don't think a .800 OPS is out of reach in GABP. The projection systems viewed him as a .265/.320/.480 threat and I don't see that as unreasonable...
