Dickey starts tomorrow

Posted by Geoff Baker

Back again, fresh off the plane from Toronto to Detroit. Waiting for my connecting flight to Seattle. I've just been informed that R.A. Dickey will start for the Mariners tomorrow night against the Washington Nationals. Erik Bedard goes on Saturday, followed by Jarrod Washburn.

After that, we'll see.

But I don't see Carlos Silva or Felix Hernandez getting skipped, given how well they've pitched of late. So, it will likely be both of them going on Monday and Tuesday -- in either order, depending on how much rest Hernandez wants to throw on -- followed by...who knows? A lot of that will depend on how Dickey throws tomorrow. And whether Miguel Batista has worked through some of his control issues. Batista needs to get his command and overall game back on-track.

So, unless Dickey implodes, or the team gets a series of abbreviated starts that requires a real long man over the next week, I'd expect to see the knuckler back out there next Wednesday in the finale of the Marlins series. As for Batista, he gets an extended bullpen break. We'll see how long that lasts in coming weeks.
