Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey suffers 12th loss

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 17:47:27 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey saw his record fall to 7-12 after losing to the San Diego Padres Wednesday, July 27. The knuckleballer lasted 5 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs (six earned) on four hits and four walks. He also struck out five.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey is a starting pitcher that's really hard to trust right now in fantasy leagues, as he's now given up five runs or more in three consecutive starts. It's his worst three-start stretch of the season, and things won't get any easier down the stretch considering the division that Toronto plays in. He's someone to avoid using in the coming weeks unless perhaps the right matchup presents itself.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz erupts in rout

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:53:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz connected on his 24th and 25th homers of the season in a 14-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, July 23, belting his ninth career grand slam off SP R.A. Dickey in the third inning before connecting on a three-run blast off RP Drew Storen in the eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz had not left the yard or driven in a run over his previous nine contests. Nevertheless, he is batting .302 in July, ranks fourth in the AL in home runs and tied for seventh in RBI (65) with teammate Kyle Seager. Cruz appears poised for his third consecutive 40-homer campaign and remains a must-start in all formats.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey goes seven strong again

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 13:36:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey baffled the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, July 10, yielding one run on five hits and two walks while fanning five over seven innings to improve to 7-9.

Fantasy Tip: The ageless wonder continues to befuddle his opponents with the knuckleball, turning in his third straight seven-inning start of allowing three or fewer runs. Since joining Toronto in 2013, Dickey always seems to be just on the verge of being fantasy-relevant in most leagues because of his durability and ability to post double-digit wins, but he rarely provides enough in any of the other major fantasy categories to count on as a regular back-end starter.
