As reported by John Lott of the National Post, Dickey described the injury as "real mild" and appeared optimistic that he wouldn't miss his next start. The Blue Jays are third in the league in runs scored, but just 19th in the league in ERA, so any missed time by Dickey would be a blow to an already shaky pitching staff.
Dickey, in his 12th Major League season, has pitched for the Rangers, Mariners, Twins, Mets and Blue Jays. In 15 games this season, Dickey has a record of 6-4 with an ERA of 4.05. His best season was in 2012 when he won the National League Cy Young Award, compiling a record of 20-6 with an ERA of 2.73. Dickey has a career record of 81-73 with an ERA of 4.03.
