News: Dickey suffered his third loss Thursday in the first leg of a doubleheader with Minnesota, giving up five runs and a season-high seven hits along with five walks over 4 1-3 innings. Impact: Aside from his 6 2-3 shutout innings in his lone win of the season on April 5 against the Yankees, Dickey has been nothing special, as evidenced by his 6.26 ERA. Fantasy owners looking for a bounce-back season after a rough 2013 from Dickey are probably growing impatient.(STATS, 5:56pm)

News: Dickey (1-3) allowed five runs and 12 baserunners (seven hits, five walks) in just 4.1 innings Thursday against Minnesota. He struck out four, needing 112 pitches even in the abbreviated outing. Impact: Dickey's looked very bad in three of his four starts so far this year, with one gem against the Yankees not nearly enough to make up for the 16 runs he's allowed in his three losses. After seeing his walk rate spike and strikeout rate fall last year, he's got an ugly 18:15 K:BB so far this year. It's not looking good.(RotoWire, )

News: The Blue Jays and Twins have postponed Wednesday's game due to weather, likely pushing back Dickey's slated start to Thursday's doubleheader, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Impact: With an inch of snow expected in Minneapolis, the team sides have opted to play a split doubleheader Thursday. Barry Davis of Sportsnet speculates that Dickey and Dustin McGowan will take the mound, allowing Dickey an extra day to bounce back from last Thursday's five run bombing as the hands of the meek Astros.(RotoWire, )

News: Dickey was taken deep twice in a loss Thursday. Impact: Dickey was moved up a day to face Houston on regular rest. He allowed five runs and six hits in seven innings. He walked three and struck out four. "It's a real surprise when I have a knuckleball like that and we have the outcome that we had," Dickey said. He'll try to regroup next week against the Twins.(STATS, 4:06pm)

News: Dickey took the loss against Houston on Thursday, allowing five runs and six hits over seven innings. He issued three walks and struck out four. Impact: Dickey was cruising through the first four innings, but gave up a two-run homer in the fifth. After a 1-2-3 sixth inning, Dickey was victimized by another long ball, surrendering a three-run blast to light-hitting Jonathan Villar. The veteran righty has had an up-and-down first three starts, but will try to gain some consistency in his next start at Minnesota.(RotoWire, )

News: Dickey and three relievers combined for a 4-0 win over the New York Yankees on Saturday afternoon. Impact: Dickey (1-1,4.63 ERA) allowed six runs and five hits in his season-opening start at Tampa Bay last Monday but was much sharper against New York. The 2012 NL Cy Young winner gave up five hits in 6 2-3 innings, walked one and struck out six.(STATS, 1:42pm)
Tue. Apr 1, 2014
News: Dickey allowed six runs in five innings in Monday's season-opening 9-2 loss at Tampa Bay. Impact: Not what fantasy owners wanted to see from Dickey following last season's nightmare. The former NL Cy Young Award winner remains a risky option going forward.(STATS, 4:32pm)
