R.A. Dickey allows two runs in win vs. Mariners
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(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.

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.
R.A. Dickey wins one Tuesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(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 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.
