Dickey teases Toronto teammate with fastball

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — R.A. Dickey threw a fastball at about 84 mph, freezing Brett Lawrie.

"Right down the pipe!" Toronto's third baseman said as a few Blue Jays' teammates around the batting cage laughed.

Known for his knuckleball, Dickey can mix in a fastball not noted for its velocity.

"That can be a weapon, too, if you use it in the right place, if a guy has tracked 10 or 11 knuckleballs in a row," he said. "When you throw a fastball in there, it's a whole different animal. It looks a lot harder than it really is, so you can play with the optical illusion from time to time."
