R.A. Dickey took a loss Sunday despite holding the Orioles to one run and two hits in six innings.
It was Dickey's first loss in eight outings since Aug. 13. Dickey finished the year with a 14-13 record, just like he did in his first year in Toronto in 2013. However, this year's 3.71 ERA was a big improvement over last year's 4.21 mark. He still has another guaranteed year at $12 million left on his contract, so he'll be back at the front of Toronto's rotation at age 40. Sun, Sep 28, 2014 04:17:00 PM

R.A. Dickey picked up his 14th win of the season, allowing two runs over seven innings, as the Blue Jays trampled the Mariners on Tuesday.

Both runs scored in the third inning on Robinson Cano's two-run single. Otherwise, Dickey was stingy, allowing five hits and a pair of walks while striking out six in the effort. Now at 3.78, his ERA is the lowest it has been all season, and he has a 1.24 WHIP and a 171/71 K/BB ratio to go along with it. Dickey wraps up his season on Sunday at home against the Orioles.

R.A. Dickey was handed a no-decision after allowing two runs in six innings as the Blue Jays watched the Yankees walk off 3-2 winners on Thursday.

Dickey was in line for the loss until Jose Bautista tied the game up in the eighth inning with a two-run home run. The knuckleballer had allowed five hits, one of which was a Derek Jeter solo homer, while walking one and striking out three. He's pitched much better as of late, and has lowered his ERA to 3.82 with a 1.25 WHIP and a 165/69 K/BB ratio. Dickey will match up against the Mariners at home on Tuesday in his next outing.

R.A. Dickey picked up his 13th victory of the season on Saturday, limiting the Rays to three runs on four hits over seven strong innings.

The veteran knuckleballer struck out five while walking a pair on the afternoon. He hasn't quite been the dominant force that he was with the Mets, but Dickey continues to provide valuable innings for an inexperienced Blue Jays staff. He boasts a 3.84 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 162/68 K/BB ratio over 196 2/3 innings on the year. He'll look to keep it rolling when he takes on the Yankees in New York on Thursday.

R.A. Dickey tossed seven innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Blue Jays' win over the Red Sox.

Dickey was really sharp, yielding only six hits and striking out four without surrendering a walk. He's now 12-12 with a 3.84 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 157/66 K/BB ratio in 189 2/3 innings (30 starts) this season. A home matchup with the Rays is next on the schedule.

R.A. Dickey earned his 11th win, holding the Rays to two runs on two hits and three walks over seven innings on Tuesday.

Dickey starts September off strong, as he hopes to have a third month with a sub-4.00 ERA -- the others occurring in May and July. The right-hander punched out six Rays en route to his win on Tuesday. Now with a 3.94 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 153/66 K/BB ratio, Dickey will go for win number 12 at Fenway Park against the Red Sox on Sunday.

R.A. Dickey was placed on revocable waivers by the Blue Jays on August 25, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

The Jays placed a bunch of players on waivers, which is pretty standard procedure for teams in August. It will soon be known whether he cleared waivers or was claimed by a team. Dickey is owed $12 million in 2015 with a $12 million club option for 2016. The knuckleballer is 10-12 with a 4.00 ERA this season.

R.A. Dickey allowed three runs (one earned) over six innings but got a no-decision as the Blue Jays lost 11-7 in 11 innings against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Dickey limited the Red Sox to five hits -- including Dustin Pedroia's first-inning, two-run home run -- while walking two and striking out six. He's been hit-or-miss for much of the season. He has a 4.00 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 147/63 K/BB ratio. He'll face the Rays in a road start on Tuesday.

R.A. Dickey surrendered five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings but the Blue Jays beat the Brewers on Wednesday.

Dickey gave up eight hits -- including three doubles, a homer, and a triple -- but the Toronto offense came to life for nine runs of support and the knuckleballer wound up notching his 10th victory of the season. Dickey has a 4.08 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the year. He'll face the Red Sox at home next.
Wed, Aug 20, 2014 05:40:00 PM

R.A. Dickey held the Mariners to a pair of runs over six innings in Wednesday's 2-0 setback.

Dickey was lucky to escape with only two runs on his ledger. He allowed seven hits and four walks, and erased most of the baserunners despite striking out only two. Dickey is tied for the most road losses in the majors, as he's now 3-9. Sporting a 3.95 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, Dickey will be in Milwaukee next week.

R.A. Dickey delivered a strong start in a no-decision against the Tigers on Friday, allowing just two runs on five hits over his six innings of work.

Dickey punched out six Tigers on the night while issuing four free passes. It looked as though he would cruise to his 10th victory of the season, but a Casey Janssen implosion in the ninth inning changed that. Now sporting a 3.99 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 135/56 K/BB ratio on the season, he'll look to get back in the win column when he does battle against the Mariners in Seattle on Wednesday.

Sat, Aug 2, 2014 11:41:00 PM

Dickey had the good knuckler going tonight, striking out 10 for the first time since May 14, 2013 against the Giants. He's 3-0 with a 2.79 ERA against the Red Sox this year, compared to 6-10 with a 4.08 ERA versus everyone else.
