Jags Lose One to the Pros

University of South Alabama Baseball signee Spencer Dickinson has signed with the Cincinnati Reds as an undrafted free agent.

Spencer Dickinson originally signed with Florida State out of The Benjamin School in Tequesta, Florida where he was a Rawlings Third Team All-American and ranked as one of the top 125 position players in the country by Perfect Game. In 52 games this past season for St. Petersburg College, Dickinson batted .366 with 15 doubles, 5 triples and 1 home run. He scored 50 runs, drove in 37 runs, stole 19 bases and walked 33 times to balloon his on-base percentage to .460. As the starting 2B he posted a solid .958 fielding percentage.

Dickinson, who would have been a contender to take over for Taylor White in CF for the Jaguars, is hitting .375 for the Arizona (Rookie) League Reds through 2 games as the starting LF.

Going into the fall, options for the Jags in centerfield would seem to be 2011 starting LF Jeff DeBlieux (.314, 2 3B, 9 SB. .426 OBP) and high school signee Colin Bray of Vancleave. The son of Scott Bray, an All-Sun Belt selection while a pitcher at South Alabama, Colin was recently named Mississippi Male Athlete of the year by the Mississippi Press for his prowess on the gridiron and the hardwood as well as the baseball diamond.
