Analysis: The 42-year-old knuckleball specialist provides an experienced and durable arm to a rotation that the Braves have made a priority to bolster this offseason. Dickey returns to the National League, where he won the 2012 Cy Young Award with the Mets, after compiling a 49-52 record and a 4.05 ERA over four seasons with Toronto. The right-hander's numbers did decline in 2015, as he finished 10-15 with a 4.46 ERA over 29 starts and one relief appearance.

Sep. 5 1:30 PM PT2:30 PM MT3:30 PM CT4:30 PM ET16:30 ET20:30 GMT4:30 1:30 PM MST3:30 PM EST4:00 PM VEN0:30 UAE (+1)3:30 PM CT-Dickey allowed five runs and seven hits over four innings in a 5-3 loss to the Yankees on Monday.

Analysis: The 41-year-old had allowed only three runs in 11 2/3 innings over his previous two starts. Dickey will have six days rest before his next scheduled start next Sunday at Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Dickey had lost his other three starts following the All-Star break, posting a 10.43 ERA. ''I've been feeling strong," he said after Tuesday's win.
