Analysis: Dickey started on three days of rest after the Blue Jays adjusted their rotation for a weekend series against Baltimore. The knuckleballer is winless in three starts and has allowed six home runs in that span. ''It's been a little bit of a rut,'' Dickey said. "I was going pretty good before the All-Star break and I've run into a little adversity here the last three outings.''
