Dickerson's season ends as he awaits first child

DENVER -- Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson will spend the final days of his breakout season at home with his wife, Beth Anne, who is due to have the couple's first child, the club announced Friday.

Dickerson spent all but a few early-season days in the Majors, beginning as a part-time player but earning full-time duty on his way to hitting .312 with 24 home runs in 131 games.

His 76 RBIs were second on the team behind Justin Morneau's 82.
