|R.A. Dickey hit hard in loss to Rangers |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/18/14) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey got roughed up in his first start after the break Friday night against the Rangers, dropping to 7-10 on the year. The knuckleballer permitted five runs on six hits and no walks while striking out seven over seven innings of a 5-1 defeat.
Over his last two starts covering 13 innings, Dickey has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 3.95 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 21 starts (132 innings). His next start will come Wednesday at home against Boston.

(7/13/14) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey allowed two runs on five hits over six innings Sunday, but his team gave him no run support in a 3-0 loss to the Rays. Dickey (7-9) struck out and walked three as his ERA dipped to 3.82.
Dickey will stay on regular rest despite the All-Star break, as he's scheduled to pitch Friday against the Rangers.
|R.A. Dickey will make one more start before the break |

(7/11/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey will make one final start before the All-Star break -- on Sunday against the Rays in Tampa Bay, Sportsnet.ca reports Friday. The move was made based on his track record at Tropicana Field. Dickey is 2-2 with a 3.64 ERA over eight appearances (six starts) in his career in Tampa Bay.
|R.A. Dickey tosses seven scoreless innings in win Tuesday |

(7/9/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey earned a win Tuesday, giving up just four hits and one walk in seven scoreless innings and striking out five in his team's 4-0 victory over the Angels.
Dickey (7-8) broke a four-game losing streak Tuesday, delivering his first scoreless start since April 5. He recorded 12 straight outs at one point before ceding a two-out double to Mike Trout, who was thrown out at third trying to stretch his hit into a triple. Dickey owns a 3.86 ERA and 99:47 K:BB ratio in 119 innings going into the All-Star break.
|R.A. Dickey had a disastrous 2013, rewarding owners who had faith in his 2010-2012 seasons (2.95 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 616 2/3 innings) with a 4.21 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. His K/9 dipped to 7.1 and he gave up a career-high 207 hits. Dickey did have some neck and shoulder issues earlier in the season, which he didn't mention later, but could have contributed to his down season -- the Blue Jays staff once again was rocked with injury, and Dickey, even a little hurt, could have pitched through the pain with his knuckler. This leaves us at a crossroads for 2014. One camp of Fantasy owners will say Dickey returned to the AL and hit the beginning of his decline (he's 39 years old). Another camp will presume Dickey pitched hurt all season long (his fastball and "power knuckler" velocity both dropped), pointing out a still-decent WHIP, and view him as having great value with bounceback potential. Consider us in the latter. Dickey is worth the risk -- he's a mid-round starter who is a lock for 200 innings and should end up posting numbers closer to his 2010-2012 run than 2013.
