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 and the Jays bested King Felix Hernandez and the M's in this one, dealing a blow to their Wild Card hopes. Dickey has had a strong second half, going 5-0 over his last seven starts while giving up two earned runs or less in seven of his last nine appearances. He's slated to get one more start against the Orioles this weekend.

Dickey made a quality start against the Yankees on Thursday, giving up two runs and five hits over six innings. He struck out three, and did not factor into the decision.

Dickey pitched effectively, but was actually in line for the loss, until the Yankees bullpen blew the lead late. The veteran knuckleballer has been solid recently, posting a quality start in seven of his last eight appearances. He's scheduled to make two home starts next week against Seattle and Baltimore.

Dickey (11-12) earned the win Tuesday, tossing seven innings of two-hit, two-run ball against the Rays. He also walked three and fanned six.

Dickey had his knuckler dancing in this one, and the two hits were the fewest he's allowed in an outing all season. He also brought his ERA back down below 4.00 (3.94), and kept the ball in the ballpark for just the second time in six starts. Dickey will take the mound at Fenway Park against the Red Sox in his next outing Sunday.

Dickey gave up three runs -- one of them earned -- on five hits over six innings while striking out six and walking two in a no-decision against the visiting Red Sox.

The 39-year-old knuckleballer was let off the hook on what would have been his 13th loss of the season by Jose Bautista, who went yard in the seventh to tie the game 4-4. It will be interesting to see how Dickey performs in the season's final month -- especially if the Jays play themselves out of the playoff hunt completely -- and if he can finish above .500 for the fifth time in his 12-year career. For now, his ERA sits at 4.00 to go with a 1.31 WHIP and 147 strikeouts in 175.2 innings (28 starts) this season.

Dickey struck out four and walked one while giving up five runs on eight hits over 5.2 innings in a winning effort Wednesday.

The Toronto offense put up a five-run sixth inning, enabling Dickey to earn the victory on a day where he wasn't particularly tough to hit. The five-run outing nudged his ERA back above 4.00 for the season (4.08), but the victory was his 10th of the year, and third since the All-Star break.
