COREY DICKERSON - MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

PHOENIX -- Corey Dickerson is beginning to make progress in his recovery from a strained right shoulder.

The Pirates left fielder will begin a long-tossing program this week, according to Todd Tomczyk, the team’s director of sports medicine. Long toss generally consists of throws from 90 feet and beyond.

Dickerson has been on the injured list since April 4. He has appeared in just four games this season.
