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.

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.

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.

Minor Details Ep. 98: Youth without the transition - Rusney Castillo and Brock Holt

How can teams acquire players who are entering their primes without having to live through the potentially massive transition of prospects coming from the minors to the big leagues? The Red Sox have two such case studies. The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo represents one effort to acquire a player for his prime years for whom the transition to big league-caliber competition might not be turbulent. Red Sox assistant director of player personnel discusses the scouting process involved with landing Castillo. The episode also features Brock Holt, the one rookie who played at a consistently high level for the Red Sox this year. Holt explores some of the distinctions that might help to explain why he did not experience some of the struggles that characterized the seasons of Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr.
