TORONTO -- Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey will pitch for the United States in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, according to multiple media reports.

The reigning National League Cy Young winner is expected to join Andy Pettitte, Ryan Vogelsong and Craig Kimbrel in manager Joe Torre's starting rotation.

The Blue Jays acquired Dickey in a trade with the New York Mets last month, signing him to two-year contract extension worth US$25 million with a club option for 2016.

Dickey went 20-6 with a sparkling 2.73 earned-run average with the Mets last year.
