Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey shackles Indians on four hits


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey had the old knuckleball knuckling Wednesday against visiting Cleveland. The result was his first complete-game victory of the season.

Dickey allowed just one run on four hits with no walks and six strikeouts. He retired the first nine batters he faced before giving up three singles in the fourth inning, including one by Carlos Santana that drove in the lone run.

The right-hander had been struggling a bit since a strong run in July and early August, but the outing against the Indians puts him back on track. It also raised his record to 10-10 and lowered his ERA to 4.09.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) R.A. Dickey was the beneficiary of the Blue Jays' explosive offense, picking up another win despite a shaky start Sunday against the Angels.

Dickey was in trouble early, throwing 39 pitches and giving up five runs in the first inning alone. But he settled down after that, finishing his night after going six innings and allowing 11 hits, and Toronto's offense took care of the deficit with no issue. 

The win moves Dickey to 8-10 on the year, and he has now won five straight decisions over the course of seven starts.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey wins back-to-back starts


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey was terrific in his outing against the Phillies on Wednesday. The veteran knuckleballer allowed a pair of unearned runs on seven hits over eight innings. Dickey walked one and struck out four in the 8-2 victory.

Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey snags first win in five weeks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2015) The old knuckleball was really knuckling for the old knuckleballer Thursday afternoon. The result for Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey was his fourth win of the season.

The hard-luck Dickey, who had not tasted victory since June 18 despite several fine performances, finally got some run support in Oakland. He allowed just two runs on five hits in eight innings with one walk and six strikeouts.

Three of those hits came in succession to start the third and resulted in both runs. But Dickey faced only one batter over the minimum the rest of the way.

He has yielded just five runs in his last 21 innings to shrink his ERA to 4.53, its lowest point since May 4. He hopes it's only the beginning because the season so far has been difficult for him mentally.

"I like to pretend that it doesn't affect you at all, but when you look up there and see a 3-10 (record) it hurts, it's hard," he told MLB.com. "I'm hopeful to run off a whole bunch of wins in a row, thinking that things will eventually even out over the course of the year, but there's no guarantee that will happen."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays' R.A. Dickey loses third straight start


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey lost to Detroit on Saturday, losing his third straight start and dropping to 3-9 on the year. 

Dickey gave up five runs on a season-high 11 hits, the most hits he's allowed in a start since May 30, 2013. He also gave up a home run, his fourth in the last six starts. 

"Sometimes that's the nature of the game," said Dickey, per MLB.com. "You have a rough first inning, sometimes you have rough fifth innings, but it is psychologically a little bit more difficult to continue to give the offence a hole to dig out of.

"So, today was a disappointment for sure. At the very least, I was able to eat some innings with a thin 'pen, and hopefully that will put us in a position to be OK for the next few games."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Dickey finished a hard-luck month. Despite posting a 3.32 ERA in June, Dickey's record was just 1-3. 

Dickey allowed three runs in six innings on Monday. He got six hits and walked three, while his record dropped to 3-8.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey gave up three earned runs in Tuesday night's 4-3 loss to the Rays. 

"I was kind of foggy today," Dickey said after his outing, per MLB.com. "It has been a tough week so I haven't gotten to prepare the way that I normally do, but I was able to repeat my mechanics enough.

It was an average performance for Dickey, who lasted seven innings. He gave up eight hits, walked three batters and struck out two. Though his season ERA is 4.88, Dickey has posted a 3.09 ERA over his past five games. 

"I felt good out there, my velocities were still good, my release point was still good," he said. "Thankfully I have enough muscle memory built in there where I can afford to have a week like that and still be OK. It wasn't much of an issue."

The loss brings Dickey to 3-7 this year. 

Dickey's next start is projected for June 29 against the Red Sox.

Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey goes six innings, takes loss Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/2/2015) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey pitched well against the Nationals on Tuesday, but was saddled with a tough-luck loss in the first game of the doubleheader. Dickey threw six solid innings in the 2-0 loss. He allowed two runs and scattered eight hits while walking one and striking out six.

Unfortunately for the knuckleballer, he wasn't able to get any run support as the Blue Jays were shutout by Jordan Zimmermann. In the fifth inning against Dickey, Bryce Harper had an RBI-single and Ryan Zimmerman had a sacrifice fly, accounting for the only damage against the 40-year-old.

"R.A. was great, he really was," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "They had that one inning when they plated two and that was the difference. Both sides pitching was outstanding. We really couldn't mount anything against Zimmermann. In the seventh inning we had a shot but he's pretty good."

Dickey (2-6) will carry a 5.53 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Sunday at home against the Astros.
