Dickey allowed three runs on 11 hits over six innings against the visiting Pirates on Tuesday. He struck out two, walked three and hit a batter.

EDGE Analysis

This 15-baserunner outing incredibly qualifies as a quality start, robbing that designation of all meaning in the process. Dickey has been a pain to own in fantasy, as his strikeout rate has dropped to its lowest point since 2008 and his walk rate is at its highest point since 2009; despite that, he's outpitched his peripherals so far, but that's not going to last if he keeps packing the bases with runners.

Dickey's next scheduled start will be Tuesday against Pittsburgh instead of Wednesday,Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves opted to have Dickey and Julio Teheran switch spots in their starting rotation, so Dickey will take the mound one day earlier than planned. Dickey's ERA and WHIP are both high and sitting at 4.13 and 1.46, respectively. He also doesn't offer much in terms of strikeouts, as he owns a bleak 4.88 K/9.

Dickey allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks Friday in a win over the Nationals. He struck out four and received a no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

It was a subpar effort for the knuckleballer, who couldn't get out of the sixth inning in this contest while throwing 117 pitches. He's not much of a fantasy asset at this point, with an unimpressive 49 hits allowed in 48 innings to go along with a 26:21 K:BB. He'll toe the rubber again on Wednesday at home against Pittsburgh.

Dickey (3-3) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out just a single batter over seven innings during Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

A pinch-hit, three-run home run from Tyler Moore in the bottom of the seventh inning was the only damage Dickey allowed. While the veteran has hardly moved the fantasy needle this season with a 4.22 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 4.6 K/9, he's been consistent. Dickey has allowed between two and four runs in each of his seven starts. However, his current .246 BABIP and 6.39 FIP suggest there are probably rougher times ahead. Dickey lines up for a daunting home matchup against the Nationals in his next start.

Dickey allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks across six innings en route to a no-decision Sunday against the Cardinals. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey allowed a solo homer in the first inning and yielded three more runs in the third as five men reached base. He settled down thereafter and allowed just three more baserunners through six before the offense got him off the hook for the loss. Dickey through just 59 percent of his pitches for strikes, but he induced 11 groundouts to help mitigate the damage. Though he is no more than a middling fantasy option in most formats at this point, Dickey has delivered respectable results more often than not this season and will look to do so next Sunday against the Marlins.

Dickey (3-2) allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three over six innings in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The knuckleballer served up two more homers Tuesday, giving him an ugly 1.8 HR/9 on the season, but fortunately did so without too many runners on base. Dickey's ERA has outpaced his FIP every season since he became a starter, but even he will have trouble maintaining his current 3.94 ERA given his ominous 6.07 FIP. His next start will come Sunday at home against the Cardinals.

Dickey (quadriceps) was confirmed as the starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Mets, David O'Brien of AJC.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Dickey won't need to miss his turn in the rotation after exiting his last start early with a quadriceps spasm. The 42-year-old is looking to grab his second straight win over the Mets and his third win in five attempts on the year. Over his first four starts (23.2 innings) this season, he owns a 3.80 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with a 16:9 K:BB.

Dickey (quad) is expected to make his next scheduled start, Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey had to exit Thursday's game after five innings due to a spasm in his left quadricep. However, his effort was enough to earn a win over the Mets, as he allowed three runs (two earned) in that time. As long as all goes as planned, Dickey will be back in full health for his next start, which would be another outing against the Mets next Tuesday. For the year, Dickey is currently 2-2 and owns an ERA and WHIP of 3.80 and 1.39, respectively.

Dickey left after the fifth inning of Thursday's game with the Mets due to a left quad spasm.

EDGE Analysis

It seemed strange that the Braves would pull the knuckleballer in the fifth after he had thrown just 67 pitches (and that they decided to pinch-hit for him with fellow pitcher Julio Teheran), but it now is clear that Dickey was dealing with a leg injury. It's unclear how severe the ailment is or whether his next start is in jeopardy, but more details should emerge following Thursday's bout.

Dickey (1-2) allowed three runs on three hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out three in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

His knuckleball was dancing almost the entire night, but one of the few that didn't got crushed for a two-run homer by Ryan Zimmerman in the sixth inning that proved to be the difference. Dickey now boasts a 3.86 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through 18.2 innings, but his 13:7 K:BB and 5.18 FIP are reminders that those ratios could collapse in a hurry. The 42-year-old will next take the mound Wednesday on the road against the Mets.
