Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey punched around

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:44:15 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey isn't fooling anyone with his knuckleball, as his ERA stands at a terrible 6.75. He has lost three straight decisions after winning his first start of the season April 4. Avoid him in all fantasy formats until he gets back on track.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey managed just one win against the Rays last season, going 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA over five starts in 30 2/3 innings, so he has already equaled that win total in just one outing.

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.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey had offseason surgery

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 14:31:46 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey (knee) said he underwent surgery this offseason to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee but should be fine for spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey should see his normal workload during spring training but could receive some days off if the knee acts up on him. Dickey could be a late-round option in deeper leagues this season and could fill a fantasy rotation.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey could be dealt

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 10:12:35 -0800

The Toronto Blue Jays could use SP R.A. Dickey as trade bait this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey went 11-11 in 33 starts last season but the 40-year-old right-hander could be the odd man out if the Jays decide to move Aaron Sanchez back to the starting rotation. He won't win another Cy Young Award in his career but he can still be a serviceable starter at the back end of fantasy rotations in single-universe and deep mixed leagues in 2016.

Blue Jays | Three regulars in Toronto returning

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 09:37:58 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista, 1B Edwin Encarnacion and SP R.A. Dickey all had their 2016 options picked up by the team Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista and Encarnacion are similar aging players with plus-power still, but Encarnacion will fall further in drafts because he has more injury concerns. Dickey is far removed from his Cy Young season with the New York Mets in the National League. He continues to be a matchup play that has more success in the hitter-friendly confines of Rogers Centre, though.
