The Yankees likely will have one less outfielder to pick from in spring training after designating Chris Dickerson for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster.

Dickerson, 30, didn't figure to have much chance of making the team this spring with three lefty starting outfielders and the addition of righties Matt Diaz and Russ Canzler.

The Yankees will look to trade Dickerson. If they are unsuccessful, then Dickerson likely will elect for free agency to find a better opportunity elsewhere.
