The veteran starter hasn't required a stint on the Major League disabled list since 2005, when he suffered a right triceps injury. He also hasn't missed a start since 2011, when he had a glute injury and a right foot injury.
Dickey has allowed two runs in each of his past three starts. He is 6-5 with a 4.08 ERA in 15 outings this season and will be matched up against Reds right-hander Mat Latos on Friday night.
