|R.A. Dickey hurt by an error Tuesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/26/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey was hurt by an error Tuesday against the Red Sox.
Dickey allowed three runs, one earned, on five hits over six innings. He struck out six and walked two. All three runs came across the plate in the first inning. Brock Holt should have struck out to open the game, but instead reached on a passed ball. Dustin Pedroia hit a two-run homer in the next at-bat, putting the Red Sox on the board early. Dickey put two men on base as the inning went along. With two outs, Dickey gave up a run-scoring double to Will Middlebrooks. Allen Craig also attempted to score on the play, but was thrown out at the plate. Dickey was only charged with one of the three runs.
Dickey left with the game tied, picking up a no-decision. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start.
|R.A. Dickey can't be picky - snags win despite poor outing |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/20/14) Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey didn't require a third straight quality start to gain his 10th win of the season Wednesday in Milwaukee. In fact, he didn't need to perform well at all.
Dickey rode strong hitting support to the win despite giving up five runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. He walked one, fanned four and yielded a two-run homer to Carlos Gomez in the sixth inning that knocked him out of the game.
The veteran has given up 24 runs in his last 44 2/3 innings. He will try to pitch better Tuesday against Boston.
|R.A. Dickey surrenders two runs in loss vs. Mariners |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/14/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey suffered a loss Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and four walks in six innings while striking out two in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Mariners.
Dickey (9-12) has issued four walks while giving up two runs in six innings in each of his last two outings, though he was able to rack up six strikeouts in his previous start Friday. His only damage Wednesday came on a two-run home run in the first inning. Dickey owns a 3.95 ERA and 137:60 K:BB ratio in 164 innings. He's scheduled to face the Brewers next Wednesday.
|R.A. Dickey gives up two runs in no-decision vs. Tigers |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/8/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey didn't factor into the decision Friday, allowing two earned runs on five hits and four walks in six innings and striking out six in his team's 5-4 loss to the Tigers.
Dickey allowed both runs on a third-inning single, but he was able to pitch around his wildness for the remainder of the start before the bullpen blew the lead in the ninth. It was the first time he didn't record a decision in 11 straight starts. Dickey owns a 3.99 ERA and 135:56 K:BB ratio in 158 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mariners Wednesday.
|R.A. Dickey takes step back in loss to Houston |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/2/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey took a step backward Saturday night, scattering five runs on nine hits and no walks in seven innings while striking out five in his team's 8-2 loss to the Astros in Houston. Of his 111 pitches, 82 were strikes.
Dickey has allowed four-plus runs in three of his last four starts. He owns a 4.03 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP over 24 starts (152 innings). The knuckleballer will look to find the winning path Friday at home against Detroit.
|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.
