Dickey (9-13) pitched 6.2 innings, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two Angels in Tuesday's win.

EDGE Analysis

The knuckleballer's strong performance Tuesday helped lower his ERA to 4.43, its lowest mark in more than a month. After a disastrous final three starts in July (17 runs in 14.2 innings), Dickey has thrown the ball well in August. Through four starts this month, the 41-year-old has picked up two wins and owns a 3.13 ERA with 16 strikeouts over 23 innings. Dickey will make his next start Sunday at home against the Twins.

Dickey (8-13) took the loss on Monday despite allowing just one run in five innings against the Yankees. He surrendered four hits, walked four, and struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey has been less than dominant to say the least, finishing six innings just once in his last five starts. He has now walked seven over his last two starts, though his six strikeouts were the most he's had in an outing since July 5. Dickey won't take the mound again until Tuesday the 23rd, agains the Angels.

Dickey was not at his best on Monday, allowing four runs in 4.1 innings against the Rays. He surrendered six hits, walked three, and struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey has really struggled since the All-Star break. The knuckleballer has made five starts since the break, allowing at least four runs in four of the starts, finishing six innings just twice. Dickey's ERA has ballooned to 4.61, and he will look to right the ship Monday against the Yankees.

Dickey (8-12) allowed just one run on six hits with five strikeouts over seven innings in a win Tuesday over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey stemmed a three-game losing streak with this outing, his first quality start since July 10 against Kansas City. Dickey had his control Tuesday, as he didn't walk a batter. Free baserunners were a huge problem over his losing streak, as he walked nine batters and hit three more in just 14.2 innings over those three starts. He doesn't have the margin for error with his knuckleball to put so many runners on base -- Dickey has never posted a HR/9 below 1.0 in his four seasons with Toronto.

Dickey (7-12) pitched 5.2 innings, allowing seven runs (six earned), four hits and four walks while striking out five Padres in Wednesday's loss.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran couldn't take advantage of the draw versus a weak Padres lineup and dropped his third straight start. Dickey issued more walks than he had in a game since June 3 against Boston, a span of nine starts. Despite starting 19 of his 24 batters with first-pitch strikes, the knuckleballer only threw 65 percent of his day's pitches in the zone. Over Dickey's last three campaigns, he's typically gotten better post All-Star break, but 2016 has been a much different story. In the righty's three starts since the Midsummer Classic, he's 0-3 with a 10.44 ERA and 12:9 K:BB in 14.2 innings. He'll look to get on track when he toes the rubber for his next start Tuesday in Houston.

Dickey will now start Wednesday against San Diego after swapping with Marco Estrada, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey was originally in line to start Friday's contest, but will switch with Estrada and pitch Wednesday against the Padres. This move will give Estrada an extra two days to rest his back with the team having a day off Thursday. Throughout the 2016 season, Dickey has posted a 4.44 ERA with a 1.34 WHIP over the course of 21 starts.

Dickey (7-11) gave up six earned runs on seven hits and two walks over three innings in Saturday's 14-5 loss to the Mariners. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran knuckleballer took it on the chin once again, with the most significant blow coming on a grand slam in the third inning by Nelson Cruz that helped end his afternoon early. Dickey threw 72 pitches in that brief time span, with the 11 swinging strikes he induced one of the few positives. After a solid stretch of pitching through June and early July, Dickey has now surrendered 11 earned runs on 12 hits and five walks over the nine innings covering his last two starts, while also yielding four homers during that span. The 41-year-old will try to right the ship next Friday versus the Orioles.

Dickey (7-10) gave up five earned runs on five hits and three walks over six-plus innings in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the A's. He struck out four but also gave up three homers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran knuckleballer was hit hard by a team he'd dominated over the prior three seasons in the A's. Dickey couldn't stay away from the long ball, giving up a pair of solo round-trippers to Khris Davis and a three-run blast to Ryon Healy. The outing broke a streak of three straight quality starts for the 41-year-old, and marked the third time in the last five outings that Dickey had surrendered multiple homers. He'll look to rebound against the Mariners next Saturday.

Through 19 starts, Dickey (7-9) hits the All-Star Break with a 3.93 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 83:40 K:BB in 116.2 innings.

EDGE Analysis

After a terrible first month of the season in which he went 1-3 in five starts with a 6.76 ERA, Dickey rebounded nicely and now has his ERA at its best mark of the season. The knuckleballer struggled with efficiency early in the year, tossing seven-plus innings just two through his first 16 starts. However, he's locked in of late, pitching seven innings in each of his last three outings before the break. His overall numbers are reasonably in line with his career averages, and there's no reason to think he won't continue to be a productive asset to any fantasy team.

Dickey (7-9) gave up just one run on five hits and two walks over seven innings Sunday, striking out five, to pick up the win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

It was his third straight quality start and the outing lowered Dickey's ERA to 3.93, the first time it's been below 4.00 all season. He's completely turned his season around after a brutal April, but the Jays will need him to remain strong in the second half as they make another push for the playoffs.
