The Rays designated Dickerson for assignment on February 17, 2018. On February 22, they traded him to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Daniel HudsonTristan Gray, and cash considerations. On April 26, Dickerson hit his first career walk-off home run, off of Alex Wilson.

In 2018, Dickerson hit .300 (8th in the NL)/.330/.474 with 7 triples (9th), 13 home runs, and 55 RBIs in 504 at bats, and swung at 59.3% of all pitches he saw, tops in the major leagues. He had the highest fielding percentage among major league left fielders, at .996, the highest range factor/9 IP among NL left fielders (2.23), and had 4 double plays (most among NL outfielders) and 7 assists (2nd-most among NL left fielders). He also earned his first career Gold Glove Award.

In 2019 with the Pirates, before he was traded he batted .317/.376/.556 with 4 home runs and 25 RBIs in 126 at bats.

Philadelphia Phillies 2019

On July 31, 2019, the Pirates traded Dickerson to the Philadelphia Phillies for a player to be named later and international signing bonus money. At the time of the trade, he was owed $2.8 million of his annual $8.5 million salary for the final two months of the season.

In 2019 with the Phillies, he batted .293/.307/.579 with 8 home runs and 34 RBIs in 133 at bats. His season was cut short by a fractured navicular bone in his left foot.
