R.A. Dickey gets a quality start against Pirates Tuesday night

R.A. Dickey allowed 11 hits and three runs (all earned) while walking three and striking out two over six innings Tuesday night against the Pirates in Atlanta. The game ended some three hours later after a lengthy rain delay but the Braves came away with a 6-5 victory off of a walk-off hit from newly acquired Matt Adams in the ninth. This was Dickey's fifth quality start of the season and he carries a 3-3 record to go with a 4.17 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. He will pitch again Sunday against Johnny Cueto and the Giants in San Fransisco.

Fantasy Impact

The Braves' are probably satisfied with Dickey thus far but in terms of fantasy value, the cupboard is pretty bare. His K/9 0f 4.67 and BB/9 of 4.00 just don't overcome the occasional quality start or win, even if he is eating some innings for you. Too many other, more viable options out there on the wire that carry more upside.

R.A. Dickey struggles but Braves win

R.A. Dickey allowed eight hits and four runs (two earned) while walking three and striking out four over 5 1/3 innings Friday night in Atlanta. With strong pitching from their bullpen and some timely hitting, the Braves won the game 7-4, thus giving Dickey a no-decision. He will pitch again Wednesday against Trevor Williams and the Pirates, in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Dickey is really struggling right now and it's not helpful that he pitches half his games at the launching pad in Atlanta, where he has surrendered seven home runs thus far in five games. His K/9 ratio is low at 4.88 and he sports an elevated 6.16 FIP to go with a 4.13 ERA. So his fantasy value is way too far south for any sort of consideration.

R.A. Dickey gets a quality start and loss Sunday

R.A. Dickey allowed five hits and three runs (all earned) while walking three and striking out one over seven innings against the Marlins Sunday in Miami. He had a shutout going until Tyler Moore launched a 3-run bomb in the seventh and that was all Miami needed to win the game by a score of 3-1. With the loss, Dickey's record sits at 3-3 on the year. He will hope for better luck against Gio Gonzalez and the Nationals, Friday in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Dickey obviously pitched well enough to win but it just didn't work out that way today. Still, Dickey has struggled this year and has an FIP of 6.19 and a K/9 of 4.64 and thus, doesn't engender a lot of fantasy love.

R.A. Dickey goes six against Cards Sunday

R.A. Dickey allowed eight hits and four runs (all earned) while walking two and striking out two over six innings Sunday against the Cards. The game turned into a marathon, with the Cards winning 6-4 in 14 innings. Dickey did not factor into the decision but it was not a productive start for him. Next up for him is Adam Conley and the Marlins, Sunday in Miami.

Fantasy Impact

Dickey has an FIP of 6.20 and an ERA of 4.29 at the moment and that rarely inspires confidence for fantasy purposes. He's best left on the waiver wire for now.

R.A. Dickey gets the win over Mets Tuesday night

R.A. Dickey went six innings Tuesday night against the Mets and allowed four hits and three runs while walking four and striking out three. It was enough to nail down the win as the Braves went on to defeat the Mets 9-7. The win elevates Dickey's record to 3-2 on the year. Next up for him is Carlos Martinez and the Cardinals, Sunday in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

All kind of warning flags, like the walks and the two homers he allowed but he still earned the quality start and the win. He's a perfect guy if you're looking for an innings eater (deeper leagues) who on occasion will earn the quality start and get the win.
