R.A. Dickey: Has option declined for 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves declined their 2018 team option on Dickey on Monday.

During his age-42 season, Dickey threw for a 4.46 ERA and 1.37 WHIP over 31 starts. In that time he posted a 136:67 K:BB and gave up home runs at a clip of 1.2 HR/9. While his fantasy value is marginal at this point in his career, Dickey could still be a serviceable arm for a major-league club, as he's appeared in at least 30 games each year since the 2010 campaign.

Braves' R.A. Dickey: Won't start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickey won't make another start before the end of the season, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Dickey was given the option to start Sunday's season finale if he wanted, but the veteran knuckleballer ultimately deferred. It appears he's content ending his season -- and possibly career -- after turning in a solid performance against the Mets his last time out. He'll finish the season 10-10 with a 4.26 ERA in 190 innings (31 starts).

Braves' R.A. Dickey: Final start could come Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickey will start Sunday in Miami if he so chooses, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

It could be that the veteran knuckleballer is content riding off into the sunset, but manager Brian Snitker said Dickey would start if he wants the ball. Otherwise rookie Max Fried will get the start. The situation should become clear in the coming days. Dickey has a 6.21 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 29 innings this month.

Braves' R.A. Dickey: Loses shutout in seventh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickey tossed 6.2 innings against the Mets on Tuesday, striking out four without a walk while allowing two runs on five hits. He didn't factor into the decision.

The knuckleballing veteran actually left with a lead despite losing his shutout in the seventh inning when he gave up a two-run homer to Kevin Plawecki, but the bullpen blew the game over the following two innings. This outing at Citi Field may have had special meaning for Dickey, who resurrected his career with the Mets, putting together a trio of star-caliber seasons from 2011-2013. It would be a solid end to his career if it were his last career outing, but Dickey is in fact lined up to make one more start Sunday in Miami.

Braves' R.A. Dickey: Hints at retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickey suggested Thursday that he may retire after this season, the Associated Press reports.

He was emotional about his outing Thursday, saying "it could be my last start ever at a home venue." Dickey, who turns 43 next month, went on to add that he feels he still has something in the tank, but he will discuss things with his family before making any decisions regarding his playing career. The knuckleballer has endured some tough starts lately, but Dickey was quite good from mid-June to late-August (2.58 ERA, 1.24 WHIP over 13 starts) and the Braves would probably welcome him back next year if he decides to return.
