Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey struggles against Tampa Bay

Wed, 18 May 2016 19:37:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey (2-5) allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits over six innings in a loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, May 18, with one walk and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: The Jays are 1-8 in Dickey's last nine starts, although he was the victim of poor run support in a handful of those outings. That being said, he should not be viewed as a great fantasy option for his next scheduled start on the road against the New York Yankees Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey has turned it around after a rough start to the season, posting six or more innings in each of his past three outings - including his first two quality starts. Slowly, but surely, Dickey is piecing it together for his nervous fantasy owners.

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed six earned runs, eight hits and a walk with three strikeouts in a loss Tuesday, April 26, against the Chicago White Sox.

Blue Jays | Josh Thole catches the knuckleball

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 20:06:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Josh Thole made the start Monday, April 4, against the Tampa Bay Rays, working with SP R.A. Dickey. Manager John Gibbons said Thole will work most of Dickey's starts to help C Russell Martin physically to avoid the stress of handling knuckleballs.

Fantasy Tip: Thole wasn't just helpful defensively, as he went 1-for-4 with a solo homer, his first since the 2013 season.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey goes five for win

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 20:03:21 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed three earned runs, six hits and two walks over five innings in a win Monday, April 4, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He struck out three batters in the 82-pitch outing, throwing 54 for strikes.

Blue Jays | Last year for R.A. Dickey?

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 00:42:48 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey is unsure whether the upcoming 2016 season will be his last, as he plans to talk with his family after the season to see whether he wants to return in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey came off of offseason surgery, but the 41-year old remains a solid option because of his knuckleball skills and a dangerous Toronto lineup. He is a decent SP3 or SP4 option in a lot of leagues, given his recent injury history and his advancing age.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey lost weight

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 12:28:10 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey lost 12 pounds in the offseason and says he's more in control.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey continues to lose control since his breakout season in 2011, and he's no longer inducing as many whiffs. Pitching half his games in hitter-friendly Toronto makes him a scary asset to own, too. He's mainly AL-only material now.
