Found May 02, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Toronto Blue Jays right-handed starting pitcher R.A. Dickey has been cleared to make his regularly scheduled start on Saturday against the Seattle Mariners. He underwent an MRI on his neck yesterday, which resulted in a diagnosis of mild inflammation in his neck, according to The Associated Press. Dickey exited his April 18 start due to tightness in his neck and back. He hasn't missed a start since due to the discomfort, but he's lost each of his last two appearances. He was much better against the New York Yankees during his last start -- allowing three runs on four hits and one walk with four strikeouts over seven innings -- but he struggled April 23 when he surrendered four runs on six hits and five walks over six innings to the Baltimore Orioles. The Blue Jays will give Dickey an extra day of rest before his next start, which comes Saturday against the M's. He threw a bullpen before yesterday's game and felt fine, according to manager John Gibbons. So far this season, the veteran has posted an ERA of 4.50 over six starts.

NY Mets look like winners following R. A. Dickey trade.

After last season break out numbers from R. A. Dickey, and his Cy Young award, the Mets were under a lot of pressure to sign him. For starters, the Mets needed a headlining name on the pitching staff, and Dickey's own personal testimony made for a feel good story. Then the Mets traded him in what became almost a nightmare for public relations for a club that needed all the positive...

Rajai Davis visits MLB Fan Cave, repeatedly interrupted by Royals ball boy (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Rajai Davis nearly collided with an overzealous Kansas City Royals ball boy while trying to catch a foul ball during a team road trip earlier this month.

Brett Lawrie and Jose Bautista have a dance party. Lawrie needs help.

The Blue Jays have been a disappointment after the coup of a trade they pulled on the Marlins over the winter.  Jose Reyes is out with a bum knee, Josh Johnson has been more like Ladybird Johnson and Emilio Bonafacio has contributed as much as I have. But, that hasn’t stopped third baseman Brett Lawrie, outfielder Jose Bautista and infielder Munenori Kawasaki from getting groovy...

The Blue Jays May Not Be a Good Team, But They Can Dance

Brett Lawrie, Jose Bautista and Munenori Kawasaki showed off some of their dance moves this week as the Torointo Blue Jays looked to jump-start their poor 2013 campaign. The Jays spent a large amount of money in the off-season but it hasn’t translated into wins as the team is sitting at a measly 10-18 record and are bottom dwellers in the AL East. Team = Bad. Dance Moves = Good...

Edwin Encarnacion's fifth deck smash at Rogers Centre

During Tuesday's Red Sox-Blue Jays game, Toronto first baseman Edwin Encarnacion hit a pair of two-run homers in the 9-7 Blue Jays victory. While neither of Encarnacion's homers were the longest of the night (that honor went to Mike Carp's blast off the facade in right center field), E5's first homer of the evening off of Jon Lester in the fifth inning was a towering...

Blue Jays rumors: Toronto targeting infielders?

The Toronto Blue Jays have disappointed in multiple areas so far this season, but their middle infield has been especially bad since Jose Reyes went down with an ankle injury.

Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet provides several different options Toronto...

LaRoche Comes Through in Extras for Bisons

Buffalo, NY - By all means, the game was not pretty. The Buffalo Bisons and Louisville Bats combined to leave 28 men on base and were 4-for-33 with runners in scoring position.  That didn’t stop Andy LaRoche from playing the hero role in the first extra-inning game of the Bisons season, as he lined a ball over Billy Hamilton’s head in centerfield to drive in Mauro Gomez for...

Game changing no call

In last night's 9-7 loss against the Toronto Blue Jays, replacement umpire Clint Fagan quite possibly gave two runs to the Blue Jays. With the bases juiced in the third inning, Jarrod Saltalamacchia attempted to pick off Jose Bautista with a snap throw to first base. Salty had a good chance to get him at first but his elbow caught Fagan's mask and the ball ended up in right...
