Dickerson never seems to get cheated with his big swing.
"That's my normal swing," Dickerson said, "so I feel pretty comfortable up there with my swing."
Dickerson became the first Rays player to hit two home runs in the first three games of the season since Carlos Pena did so in 2012. Dickerson also did it with the Rockies in 2015.
"He hits it hard," Rays hitting coach Derek Shelton said. "I think that's the one thing we saw right from the get-go when we got him."
Shelton said he isn't about to tell Dickerson to back off from his big swing.
"That's his swing," Shelton said. "The fact that he came over with that swing and that's what he's had success with."
