R.A. Dickey leaves game with back, neck tightness

Toronto Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey left his start Thursday after six innings with back and neck tightness, the team said. The Blue Jays said it was a precautionary measure.

According to reports, Dickey appeared to get injured on  a strikeout of the Chicago White Sox's Dewayne Wise in the sixth inning. Dickey had been breezing through the start before suffering the injury, going six strong innings while allowing just two hits and striking out seven. The Blue Jays ended up winning, 3-1.

Dickey, who the Blue Jays acquired from the New York Mets during the offseason, is 2-2 with a 4.30 ERA and 20 strikeouts in four starts (23 innings) this season.

According to the National Post's John Lott, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons expects Dickey to make his next start.
