Blue Jays right-hander R.A. Dickey left Thursday night's start with neck and back tightness, the team announced. They say the move is precautionary.

Dickey, 38, threw only 64 pitches across six innings. The trainer visited him on the mound following his second-to-last pitch of the night, but he remained in the game to retire the batter. Dickey allowed two singles and a walk while striking out seven in the six scoreless frames.

The Blue Jays acquired the reigning NL Cy Young Award from the Mets this past offseason. Dickey went 1-2 with a 5.82 ERA in his first three starts of the season.
