Dickey wasn't sharp against the White Sox Tuesday, allowing five runs in five innings on eight hits and two walks, striking out five.

Dickey has given up 22 earned runs over his last four starts and 25 innings and has allowed less than four runs in just three of 10 starts this season. At age 40 it seems the knuckleballer has run out of magic as he now sits with a 5.77 ERA on the season.

Dickey pitched a complete game on Thursday night, surrendering four runs on five hits to earn his second win of the season.

Dickey didn't pitch great on Thursday, but he did enough to get the win behind the eight runs that his offense provided him. He walked two and struck out seven to bring his record to 2-5 with a 5.49 ERA. He's had a rough start to the season up to this point, but hopefully he can build on this moving forward.

Dickey surrendered seven runs on 10 hits in a loss to the Astros on Friday night.

Dickey was absolutely pounded all over the yard on Friday in an awful performance. He gave up seven runs in just 5 innings to earn the loss and bump his ERA to an ugly 5.76. Dickey is now 1-5 on the year, and it seems like the Knuckleballer's best years are probably behind him. He'll get a tough Angels lineup at home in his next start.

Dickey got touched up on Sunday, giving up six earned runs, seven hits and three walks without striking out a batter in their 6-3 loss to the Red Sox.

That's now two consecutive starts without a strikeout for Dickey, who has been wildly inconsistent this season, sporting a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 20:19. Furthermore, the two home runs Dickey allowed on Sunday brings his season total up to seven. At this point, fantasy owners would be wise to wait-and-see if Dickey can regain his form of old before putting him in their starting lineups.

Dickey held the Yankees to one run on three hits over eight innings in a winning effort Monday night to record his first victory of the season.

He did not record a strikeout in the outing, but Dickey was very effective by getting the Yankees to put the ball on the ground often (12 groundouts, 12 flyouts). He'll make his second start of the week Sunday against the Red Sox at Rogers Centre.

Dickey (0-3) gave up four runs on nine hits over seven innings during Wednesday's loss in Boston. He struck out four and didn't issue a walk.

The Red Sox mostly got to Dickey in a three-run third inning; otherwise, he delivered a pretty solid outing, showing his sharpest control yet this season. Nonetheless, Dickey remains a dicey fantasy proposition, as his knuckler hasn't been nearly as reliable in Toronto as it was with the Mets.

Dickey escaped with a no-decision on Saturday, allowing four runs on four hits (including two home runs) and four walks in seven innings, striking out six.

His 16 K's, 3.26 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 19.1 innings isn't too bad, but despite the Jays' big offensive output so far, Dickey hasn't managed to come away with a win yet. He'll have a decent shot at his first W in his next start, on the road against the Rays.

Dickey managed to limit the damage Monday, but took the loss after allowing two runs in six innings against the Rays.

Dickey was hurt by wildness Monday, walking five batters and forcing in both of the runs against him with free passes. He has now walked 10 batters in 12.1 innings this season. He'll look to get his control in check when he takes the bump against the Braves this weekend.

Dickey only gave up one walk across 12 innings throughout Spring Training.

After handing out a career-high 74 free passes in 2014, Dickey worked throughout the offseason to reduce the number of walks he gave up. In each of his last two seasons with the Mets, he gave up 54 walks, which is closer to where Dickey wants to be. "I would say a successful season for me would be 200 innings, 15 or more wins, keep my walks around 50 or 60, [while] going to the playoffs and hopefully to the World Series," Dickey said to Israel Fehr of Yahoo. While Dickey isn't the Opening Day starter for the first time in Toronto, he still headlines the rotation along with Drew Hutchison and Mark Buehrle. He will be a strong fantasy option in all formats even though his personal catcher, Josh Thole, was sent down to the minors.

Dickey allowed two hits and one earned run over six innings against the Orioles on Sunday.

Dickey was strong in Toronto's season finale and lowered his ERA to 3.71 after the six solid innings. The knuckleballer closed out the year by allowing three or fewer earned runs in each his final seven starts.
