|R.A. Dickey allows three runs in win vs. Rays Saturday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/13/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey earned a win Saturday, giving up three earned runs on four hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out five in his team's 6-3 victory over the Rays.
Dickey (13-12) has won each of his last three starts, lasting seven innings in each while allowing a total of six earned runs during that stretch. He gave up a run on a groundout in the first inning and another on a wild pitch in the third before serving up a solo home run in the sixth. Dickey owns a 3.84 ERA and 162:68 K:BB ratio in 196 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Yankees Thursday.

|R.A. Dickey wins one Tuesday |

(9/2/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey turned in a strong start Tuesday against the Rays.
Dickey gave up two runs on two hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked three. Dickey was tagged for both runs early in the start. After getting a strikeout to open the second inning, Dickey loaded the bases on a single, walk and hit by pitch. With the bases juiced, Dickey gave up a run-scoring single and a sac fly. That was all Dickey would give up. After his rough second inning, Dickey would go on to throw five scoreless frames.
With the win, Dickey improved to 11-12. He'll take on the Red Sox in his next start.
|R.A. Dickey hurt by an error Tuesday |

(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 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.
