ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Toronto Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey was struck on the head by a line drive off the bat of Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria during batting practice Wednesday before a game against the Rays.

Dickey returned to the Blue Jays clubhouse and was not injured, club spokesman Mal Romanin said.

The 2012 NL Cy Young award winner was loosening up in left field and facing away from the plate when hit on the side of the head, according to several witnesses.

The 39-year-old knuckleballer is 11-12 with a 3.94 ERA.
