Blue Jays' Dickey has faith in Russell Martin catching his knuckleball
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey is excited about new catcher Russell Martin and believes he can catch his knuckleball, SportsNet.com reports.
“Nothing is going to replace time spent together, and so I think from the get-go, we’re probably going to be spending a lot of time on the side, bullpens, playing catch so that he can get a feel for what that pitch does and see if he feels like it’s something he can do every day that I pitch, that’s 34 starts,” Dickey said.
Martin said he expects to be the catcher when Dickey starts and doesn't believe the knuckleball will be a problem.
Dickey went 14-13 in 2014, posting a 3.71 ERA in 215 2/3 innings.

|(9/23/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey earned a win Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out six in his team's 10-2 victory over the Mariners.
Dickey (14-12) gave up two runs in the third inning to fall behind 2-1, but the Blue Jays offense took advantage of a rare off-night by Felix Hernandez to rack up seven runs in the fifth and help Dickey cruise to a win in his sixth straight quality start. He owns a 3.78 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 171:71 K:BB ratio in 209 2/3 innings. Dickey's slated to face the Orioles in the season finale Sunday.

|(9/18/14) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey tossed a quality start but was unable to factor into the decision Thursday night against the Yankees in New York.|

Dickey owns a 3.82 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP over 32 starts (202 2/3 innings). His next start will come Tuesday at home against Seattle.
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 adds to quality start run
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/7/14) R.A. Dickey entered Sunday's game at the Red Sox having made four quality starts in his last five tries, and he extended the string in the Blue Jays' 3-1 victory. Dickey allowed only one run on six hits and no walks, and he struck out four batters.
Over his six most recent starts, Dickey has compiled a 3.11 ERA, and he now has a 3.84 mark on the season, to go with a 12-12 record.
|2014 summary: His Cy Young season now two years behind him, R.A. Dickey was remarkably ordinary for an extraordinary pitcher in 2014, powerknuckling his way to a 14-13 record and 3.71 ERA for the Blue Jays. He remained an innings eater, delivering his fourth straight season with 200-plus, but these days it takes more than that to set a player apart at starting pitcher.|
Playing time status: At age 40, Dickey has reached the stage of his career where injuries should be the expectation, which of course works against his greatest attribute, the whole innings-eater thing. His low-effort arsenal could help him defy Father Time, as is true for all knuckleballers, but given the lack of upside, why give him the benefit of the doubt?
2015 outlook: It's not that Dickey is a bad pitcher. He may not be as good as he was during his Cy Young season, but he's about like he was during the two years prior. It's just that the starting pitcher landscape has changed so much since then that he's buried behind a bunch of strikeout-per-inning, low-WHIP types. In deeper Head-to-Head points leagues, where a consistent six or seven innings really is still valuable, he's a decent pick late, but otherwise, you wouldn't be wrong to pass him up entirely.
