Chris Dickerson Called-Up - Soriano to the DL

As per Chad Jennings:
Outfielder Chris Dickerson just walked into the clubhouse. Looks like he’ll fill out the Yankees bench. No word on an official move.
I'm assuming this means one of the Yankees eight relievers will be heading down to Scranton - thankfully. Logic would dictate that it would be Hector Noesi, who has nothing to gain by sitting out in the bullpen ... here's hoping.

Dickerson, obtained from the Brewers for Sergio Mitre, is a career .267/.356/.403 hitter with a decent power-speed combination, and a slightly above-average glove in the outfield. He was batting .248/.370/.354 for Scranton.

Update: It appears that Dickerson will be taking Soriano's roster spot, as the $36 MM man hits the disabled list. Dickerson will be starting in right this evening.
