R.A. Dickey, who had been listed as Sunday's starter opposite Miami Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco, now is listed as Saturday's starter instead against left-hander Mark Buehrle at Citi Field.

That presumably allows Dickey another start in Flushing, in the home finale against the Pittsburgh Pirates next Thursday, rather than having to face the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field the following night, on a day that will include a ceremony honoring Chipper Jones.

Dickey, who is sitting at 18 wins, regardless will pitch at Miami in his third and final start.

Chris Young flips with Dickey and instead starts this Sunday against the Marlins.
