Walks a concern for R.A. Dickey


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/5/2014) What separated R.A. Dickey from the knuckleballers who came before him during his Cy Young 2012 season was both his power and his control. So the fact he's issued an MLB-leading 22 walks through seven starts should be a real concern to his Fantasy owners.

Even when he struggled in the first half last season (before rebounding in the second), his control was at least passable. He issued 3.3 walks per nine innings in 18 starts -- a rate partially inflated by four starts in which he walked four batters or more. He already has three starts with four walks or more this season and has only twice issued fewer than three.

Maybe he'll settle down over the next few weeks and get back to being a reliable Fantasy option, but his knuckleball won't be nearly as effective if he's constantly having to pitch out of jams. The way he bounced back last year compels me to hang on to him for now, but as unreliable as he's been so far, I couldn't bring myself to start him in a standard mixed league.


R.A. Dickey tosses quality start in no-decision Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2014) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey recorded a quality start but no decision Saturday after giving up three earned runs on five hits and four walks in six innings and striking out three in his team's 8-6 loss to the Pirates.

Dickey gave up a leadoff double in the seventh inning before leaving up 6-2, but presumed closer Aaron Loup came in and let the inherited runner, as well as three more runners, score to even things up at 6-6. Dickey owns a 5.01 ERA and 33:22 K:BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Angels at home Friday.


R.A. Dickey solid in win against Red Sox


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2014) Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey had a nice outing against the Red Sox Sunday.

Dickey gave up just one run over 6 1/3 innings. He allowed five hits, and did not walk a batter. Dickey managed to strike out six batters during the appearance. 

Dickey ran into trouble in the second inning, giving up an RBI single to Jackie Bradley Jr. After getting two quick outs to open the inning, he allowed three straight singles, the last of which was hit by Bradley. Dickey was able to get out of the inning, and settled in nicely after that. 

The win brought Dickey's record to 2-3 this year. His next start will come against the Pirates.
