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.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey superb against K.C.

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 19:22:37 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed two unearned runs, four hits and three walks with eight strikeouts over seven innings in a win Tuesday, July 5, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: It was one of Dickey's best performances of the season against a pretty solid lineup. After a rough start to the season in April, Dickey posted a 3.20 ERA in May and 3.44 ERA in June, and he is off to a great start in July. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all AL-only and deeper mixed fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey suffers loss Thursday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 19:07:31 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey (5-9) allowed three runs on eight hits over seven innings in a loss to the Cleveland Indians Thursday, June 30, with one walk and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: With the loss, Dickey fell to 0-6 at the Rogers Centre this season and he has surrendered six home runs over his last two starts, although all of them have been solo shots. He should be viewed as a risky play for his next outing at home versus the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, July 5.

Blue Jays | No support for R.A. Dickey

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 22:01:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed three earned runs, five hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings Monday, June 13, against the Philadelphia Phillies in a loss. Dickey has received 14 runs of support over his past six starts, with half of those coming last Wednesday, June 8. He is 0-5 with a 5.14 ERA in seven home starts.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey has been awful at home, and the Blue Jays offense has been taking the night off when he is on the bump. Fantasy owners in seasonal leagues, and those who play DFS, might want to shy away from him until he gets untracked or starts to get a little more support from his offense.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey flirts with no-hitter

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 20:43:54 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning Friday, June 3, against the Boston Red Sox. He ended up allowing one unearned run, two hits and five walks with four strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings to earn the victory.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey has worked his ERA down from 6.75 to 4.21 over the past seven starts dating back to April 26. He has been much better over the past five weeks and he has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option across all formats and DFS.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey looks for turnaround

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 20:35:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey is scheduled to start Friday, June 3, against the Boston Red Sox. He has won just once in the past 10 starts, and he is 0-2 in three outings against the Red Sox this season.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey cannot be trusted against Boston - or anyone - right now. Avoid him in DFS and most fantasy formats until he starts to get untracked.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey to start Friday

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 18:22:12 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey will start against the Boston Red Sox Friday, June 3. He had been previously scheduled to face the team Saturday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Wednesday, Boston led the majors with a .294 batting average, so this should not be viewed as a great matchup for Dickey. The 41-year-old knuckleballer is 2-6 with a 4.64 ERA through 11 starts this year.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey suffers loss

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:30:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed four runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings against the New York Yankees Tuesday, May 24, to suffer his sixth loss of the season. He struck out seven batters and walked two during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey has seen his ERA drop one run from the start of the month but still has a 4.60 ERA after allowing nine runs in his last two starts. He is scheduled to pitch against the Boston Red Sox in his next start, which makes him a risky option for owners.
