Dickey, a knuckleballer, is 2-5 with a 4.50 ERA this season. Most importantly, though, he's thrown 60 innings for the beaten-up Mets. With all the injuries, Dickey's been valuable to the Mets and they could ill-afford to lose him for an extended period. Fortunately, it appears he's just going to be dealing with pain in the next few days and should stay in the rotation.
