Analysis: Dickey hadn't been awful during his four-start skid, allowing 12 earned runs in 28 1-3 innings, though he was supplied with only seven runs of support.

Analysis: The Blue Jays called up right-hander Liam Hendriks to start their series opener Friday night against the Cincinnati Reds, part of a rotation rearrangement.
May 4 11:18 AM PT12:18 PM MT1:18 PM CT2:18 PM ET14:18 ET18:18 GMT2:18 11:18 AM MST1:18 PM EST1:48 PM VEN22:18 UAE1:18 PM CT-Dickey did not get a decision Saturday.

Apr. 28 2:41 PM PT3:41 PM MT4:41 PM CT5:41 PM ET17:41 ET21:41 GMT5:41 2:41 PM MST4:41 PM EST5:11 PM VEN1:41 UAE (+1)4:41 PM CT-Dickey looked perhaps the best he has all season in Sunday's win over Boston.
Analysis: Dickey limited the Red Sox to a run and five hits over 6 1-3 innings, and perhaps most importantly, issued no walks. Dickey had been averaging a career-worst 5.59 walks per nine innings through his previous five outings.
Apr. 18 2:56 PM PT3:56 PM MT4:56 PM CT5:56 PM ET17:56 ET21:56 GMT5:56 2:56 PM MST4:56 PM EST5:26 PM VEN1:56 UAE (+1)4:56 PM CT-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.
Analysis: 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.
Apr. 11 1:06 PM PT2:06 PM MT3:06 PM CT4:06 PM ET16:06 ET20:06 GMT4:06 1:06 PM MST3:06 PM EST3:36 PM VEN0:06 UAE (+1)3:06 PM CT-Dickey was taken deep twice in a loss Thursday.
Analysis: 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.

Analysis: 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.
Apr. 1 1:32 PM PT2:32 PM MT3:32 PM CT4:32 PM ET16:32 ET20:32 GMT4:32 1:32 PM MST3:32 PM EST4:02 PM VEN0:32 UAE (+1)3:32 PM CT-Dickey allowed six runs in five innings in Monday's season-opening 9-2 loss at Tampa Bay.
Analysis: 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.
