Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey goes 8-plus

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 18:43:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed two runs and five hits in 8 1/3 innings Thursday, July 23, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) hasn't allowed more than two runs in three consecutive starts. The risk will always be there for the knuckleballer, but Dickey does have upside in the right matchups.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison scratched, Dickey starting

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 07:46:26 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison (illness) was scratched from his start Thursday, July 23, due to flu-like symptoms. SP R.A. Dickey will face the Oakland Athletics in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has pitched better after two brutal months to begin the season. He has a 3.49 ERA since the beginning of June. The A's aren't a bad matchup, and Dickey is at a price where you can roll the dice with him as a low-end second SP on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey not getting support

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 15:16:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey remains winless in five starts since June 18, after taking a no decision Saturday, July 18, against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Blue Jays have scored two runs or fewer in 11 of Dickey's 19 starts this season, including each of his past five.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has allowed more than three earned runs in just one of his last eight starts. FantasyScore owners can almost always find options with more upside than Dickey.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey winless on the road

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:07:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey is scheduled to start Thursday, July 9, against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. He enters play 0-6 with a 6.04 ERA in eight road starts, and the opposition is hitting .337 against him in those games.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000; or 8.0% of cap) has actually been pretty efficient at home, but FantasyScore players need to avoid him like the plague when he is south of the border.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey cannot solve Boston

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:12:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed three runs and six hits over six innings in a loss against the Boston Red Sox Monday, June 29. He fell to 0-3 with a 5.76 ERA in four outings against the Red Sox this season.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000; or 8.0% of cap) was a little better Monday, but he is still 3-8 with a 4.85 ERA overall this season. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he starts to show some consistency.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey decent in loss

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 19:20:56 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed three earned runs, eight hits and three walks over seven innings in a loss Tuesday, June 23, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000; or 8.0% of cap) has actually been a little better lately, going 1-2 with a 3.09 ERA in five starts in the month of June. Still, he is winless in five decisions over seven starts on the road and shouldn't be touched in FantasyScore when he is away from Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey starting Tuesday

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 14:24:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey will start against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, June 23, with the Blue Jays skipping their fifth starter's turn in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format at this point. He has won just three games this season, and he has a 4.96 ERA, 5.27 FIP, 1.32 WHIP and 5.9 K/9. Although, he is fresh off his best start of the season Thursday, June 18, where he had seven strikeouts and a single run against over 7 1/3 innings.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey back with team

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 09:45:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey was activated from the bereavement list Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has had a fine June, as he hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his four starts, and he won while giving up just a run and three hits in 7 1/3 innings against the New York Mets last Thursday. Dickey's recent run makes him more trustworthy at FantasyScore, but he's still only striking out 5.9 hitters per nine innings and should remain a matchup play.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey placed on bereavement list

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 12:07:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey was placed on the bereavement list Friday, June 19. The team also recalled 2B Munenori Kawasaki from Class AAA Buffalo. Dickey will miss at least three days and could miss as many as seven days. It is not known if he will make his next scheduled start Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) had a death in his family, so it is not known how long he will be away from the team. Owners should monitor the situation to see if he will be able to make his next scheduled start. Dickey has pitched better this month and could be a cheaper pitching option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey better in another loss

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 17:54:57 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey gave up eight hits, one walk, two earned runs and struck out six hitters in six full innings Tuesday, June 2, in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) had allowed at least four earned runs in his four previous outings, so he was finally able to contain the base runners he allowed. It was only the fourth time this year Dickey struck out at least six hitters, and he should continue to be avoided on FantasyScore due to the minimal upside and high risk.
