Dickey in line for next start despite HBP
MIAMI -- R.A. Dickey reported no ill effects the day after being hit by a pitch in the right arm Saturday, and he is in line to make his next start Thursday against the Reds.

"I talked to him at length yesterday afternoon after the game," manager Terry Collins said Sunday. "He said it was fine. He iced it and things were good."

Showing off a bright red imprint of the baseball's stitching on the inside of his right wrist, Dickey was unconcerned about the injury after Saturday's game. Marlins pitcher Ricky Nolasco struck him during the knuckleballer's at-bat in the fifth, but Dickey remained in the game to pitch two more innings. He ultimately left after experiencing some tightness.

Dickey is off to a 5-1 start with a 3.65 ERA in seven starts.
