Baseball America Post 2006 Best Tools in Reds Organization:
If you had to pick one word to discribe Chris Dickerson, it's tools. He has them all. He is fast, he plays suberp defense, he has a good arm, he walks a ton, and he has developing power. The problem is, his power hasen't developed, he strikes out alot, and he doesn't hit for a very high average. There is good news for Chris, he is still does have some time. At 25 and in AAA, with his tools, he still has 2 years left before he goes from prospect to AAA fodder. To take the step from prospect to major league player, he MUST cut down on his strikeouts (118 in only 333 Abs) and his power needs to develop more. With an BA/OB split over .100, if he could hit .260 with decent power and less strikeouts he could become a ML outfielder. It's not everyday a CF comes around with his defensive skills.
He has the tools, but they still need time to developing. While he does have some time, the clock is ticking on him.
