Blue Jays | Injury affecting R.A. Dickey

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey's (neck, back) recent injury hasn't kept him from pitching, but it has affected the velocity on his knuckleball and has changed up his release point. The velocity on his knuckleball has dropped from 77 mph early in the year to 75 mph in his last two outings. Dickey said he doesn't expect to sit out for a period of time due to this injury.

Fantasy Tip: While Dickey didn't have a terrible start Tuesday, it wasn't great, either. It remains to be seen if his injury will affect any more of his next starts, but you should keep it in mind when considering matchups.
