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.

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. 6 10:42 AM PT11:42 AM MT12:42 PM CT1:42 PM ET13:42 ET17:42 GMT1:42 10:42 AM MST12:42 PM EST1:12 PM VEN21:42 UAE12:42 PM CT-Dickey and three relievers combined for a 4-0 win over the New York Yankees on Saturday afternoon.
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.
