R.A. Dickey has been diagnosed with a partially torn plantar fascia after injuring himself while covering first base in yesterday’s start.

Dickey is officially listed as day-to-day for now and hasn’t been placed on the disabled list, but Mike Mazzeo of ESPN New York reports that he’ll have to avoid any problems during a bullpen session Sunday to be cleared for his next start.

Dickey, who has a 4.50 ERA in 10 starts this season after coming out of nowhere with a 2.84 ERA in 26 starts last year, said: “I feel like it’s just a matter of managing the symptoms and I’ll be out there.”

    Too bad the Phillies won’t face him this weekend. I wanted the Phillies to “Pound Dickey”.

    Sorry to hear it. It’s fun to watch him pitch and more fun to listen to him. He’s the un-Ozzie: mordant, coherent, and his mouth is definitely not a horizontal vulvate welt.

      Dammit Gator! The Jays gotta play the White Sox 2 more times and you keep describing Ozzie’s mouth like that and now whenever they cut to him all I can see is ‘vulvate’. I’m getting a serious complex here about Ozzie. Couldn’t you come up with a better term? I know you can do it; you got erudition like most folks got dandruff. It just flakes off you, no effort involved at all. Try real hard now. How bout ‘pilonidal’? As in ‘pilonidal (anal) cyst’?

      So to properly conjugate that we’d have; “pilonidate”, right?
