TORONTO - R. Terry Steinbach Jersey .A. Dickey is still searching for the winning formula at Rogers Centre as he prepares to make his 13th home start of the season on Sunday. "I think I possess the tools to do it here," said Dickey. "I just might have to utilize some things that I seldom have to utilize on the road. I dont think it would cause me out of who I am. It just means I have to make an adjustment and this game is all about adjustments." As detailed below, Dickeys home and road splits are out of whack. HOME: 5.97 ERA, .842 opponents OPS, 18 home runs against. ROAD: 3.08 ERA, .666 opponents OPS, 7 home runs against. "In particular, in this park, for whatever reason, my elevated knuckleball seems to not have the movement that it does in other places," said Dickey. "Just lowering my sights, trying to get my knuckleball kind of to dance lower than I ordinarily would. So thats just release point. Thats a mechanical adjustment that shouldnt be very difficult to make but just being conscientious that I need to do that in this park." Dickey faced the Athletics in his second-to-last start at the Coliseum. In that game he threw six innings and allowed two runs, though neither was earned. He didnt get a decision in a game the Blue Jays eventually won 5-2 in 10 innings. REYES PLAYING THROUGH PAIN Jose Reyes has started each of the Blue Jays 39 games since his return from a severely sprained left ankle. "My ankle is still bothering me a little bit," said Reyes. "Its not quite there 100 per cent yet. Thats something that maybe I can get 100 per cent in the offseason with some rest. But for right now, Im able to play like that." Reyes says his left ankle is noticeably weaker than his right ankle. Its still sore and feels, at times, stiff. He says hes most affected moving to his left for ground balls and when hes forced to leap. While Reyes initially experienced pain rounding the bases, he says thats no longer an issue. LAWRIE WORKING WITH EDDIE Much has been made of Brett Lawries friendship with veteran and team leader Mark DeRosa but when it comes to hitting the 23-year-old picks the brain of Edwin Encarnacion. "Ive turned more my book towards, in that department, Eddie," said Lawrie. "I go with Edwin Encarnacion. We look at video together. We do our thing." Lawrie could do a whole lot worse than Encarnacion. Encarnacion, whos become one of the games elite power hitters, is on pace for a second consecutive season with 40-plus home runs and a better than .900 OPS. However, success didnt immediately find him. After three productive seasons with the Reds, Encarnacion was acquired by the Blue Jays, for Scott Rolen, at the trade deadline in 2009. The next season, he was designated for assignment and outrighted to the minor leagues. In the 2010-2011 offseason, Encarnacion was lost to the Athletics on waivers but when Oakland didnt tender him a contract, the Blue Jays brought him back. It was in 2011, after he was moved from third base to designated hitter/first base, that Encarnacions numbers spiked significantly. PEREZS SEASON IS OVER Reliever Juan Perez, 34, wont pitch again in 2013 and is questionable for next season after tearing the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow in Friday nights game against Oakland. Perez requires Tommy John surgery. In 19 appearances this season, all in relief, Perez posted a 3.69 ERA and averaged 9.64 strikeouts per nine innings. Reggie Jackson Jersey . They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. Custom Oakland Athletics Jerseys . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. . Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots on Saturday in the Oklahoma City Barons 4-1 victory over the Abbotsford Heat. The Oilers signed Bryzgalov to a one-year $2 million contract last Friday after shedding payroll by dealing defenceman Ladislav Smid to the Flames.Willie Mullins may have one eye on a first British champion trainers title but he has no intention of relinquishing his crown as King of Punchestown, when next weeks Festival gets underway. At last years Punchestown Festival, Mullins won an incredible 16 of the 37 races (43.2%) and he looks set to be well-represented throughout this years five-day meeting, running from Tuesday April 26 to Saturday April 30.The Punchestown Festival has been a happy hunting ground for us in the past and it produces some memorable races every year. Its a great opportunity for the public to see the cream of the crop from Cheltenham and Aintree go head-to-head on Irish soil, said Mullins. Punchestown always produce lovely, safe ground for the end of the season and the prize money is top-class, hence we always try to send as good a team as we can assemble each year.While Mullins is still finalising plans for some of his big guns, one thing is for certain - he has his eyes set on being leading trainer once again next week, something he has achieved at 13 of the last 15 Punchestown Festivals.The most exciting young chaser in training, Douvan, will not be taking up an entry at Sandown this weekend and instead heads to Punchestown next Thursday, April 28, for the Grade 1 Ryanair Novice Chase. The six-time Grade 1 winner was successful at both Cheltenham and Aintree.Douvan looks the most likely of mine to go for the Ryanair Novice Chase. Hes in great nick, said Mullins.Annie Power, for many the best mare since the great Dawn Run, is set to appear in Fridays Grade 1 BETDAQ Punchestown Champion Hurdle on the back of her breathtaking victories in the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham and Aintree Hurdle at Liverpool. Ruby Walsh celebrates victory in the Champion Hurdle on Annie Power Although she holds other entries, the BETDAQ Champion Hurdle is Annie Powers main target, said Mullins. Itll be just over three weeks since her win at Aintree so that falls nicely and she came out of the Aintree race well. She has won the Grade 1 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Champion Hurdle at the Festival for the last two years. Sempre Medici will go for the Champion Hurdle as well.Meanwhile, another potential mare out of the ordinary could be on show in Saturdays Grade 1 AES Champion 4YO Hurdle. Apples Jade, a 41-length winner at Aintree, is more likely to go for that contest than the Grade 1 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Champion Hurdle the same day.Apples Jade is in the Mares Champion too but this race is probably the best option for her. She has come out of Aintree well. Voix Du Reve could go as welll, said Mullins.Mullins has won all three runnings of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Champion Hurdle and he hopes that Cheltenham winner Limini can enhance that record.Limini looks to be the obvious one for this race - shes well but there are others with chances in this too like Lets Dance and Myska.Theres also a possibility that Vroum Vroum Mag might go there, depending on what happens with her this weekend, added Mullins.Next Tuesday, Mullins confirmed that Yorkhill will bid to complete a Cheltenham/Aintree/Punchestown treble when lining up in the Grade 1 Herald Champion Novice Hurdle.Yorkhill would look to be my best chance in this race. He seems fine after what might have appeared to have been a hard race at Aintree, and hell head my team. We have a number of others engaged but hes the number one, he said. Yorkhill will bid for a big-race treble at Punchestown Those at the moment likely to start in Tuesdays Grade 1 BoyleSports Champion Chase include last years winner Felix Yonger and Twinlight.Twinlight is very well and will definitely run - it will be his fifth run at the Punchestown Festival - but well have tto see after that. Khris Davis Jersey. Felix Yonger won this race last year so he could return to defend his title, said Mullins.In Tuesdays Grade 1 Growise Champion Novice Chase, Mullins is hopeful that Outlander can make amends for a fall at Cheltenham and subsequent defeat at Fairyhouse.Outlander will probably run in the Growise Champion Novice Chase, added Mullins. He was going well at Cheltenham before falling and was a close second at Fairyhouse. Prior to that he was unbeaten in three runs this season and finished third to Nichols Canyon in a Grade 1 hurdle at Punchestown last year. He could well be joined by Roi Des Francs. Shaneshill is not out of it either but it depends whether we decide to stick to hurdles with him or go back over fences.Mullins is likely to have at least a couple of runners in the sensational Grade 1 Bibby Financial Services Ireland Punchestown Gold Cup on Wednesday.The Cheltenham Gold Cup second and third, Djakadam and Don Poli, look set for a rematch with the winner Don Cossack. Ryanair Chase winner Vautour is a likely starter if not travelling to Sandown on Saturday.Djakadam and Don Poli are being lined up for the Gold Cup as things stand. Vautour and Sir Des Champs are possibles for Sandown but if they dont go there they could come into this race as well, he said.Mullins will field a strong team in Wednesdays Grade 1 Irish Daily Mirror Novice Hurdle.Bellshill, who won the Champion Bumper at Punchestown last year for us, will probably lead the team in the three- mile novice hurdle, he added. Looking down thorough my entries Arkwrisht, Stone Hard and Burgas are all possibles, as are previous course winners Thomas Hobson and Balko Des Flos so well have a few in that race.Stable stalwart Thousand Stars, a Grade 1 winner at Auteuil in November, is set to run in the Grade 1 Ladbrokes Champion Stayers Hurdle on Thursday, April 28.Thousand Stars is a definite runner, all going to plan, said Mullins. This will be his seventh Punchestown Festival and hes been a tremendous servant. He would have two Champion Hurdle wins there only for Hurricane Fly and he was third in another two Champion Hurdles won by The Fly. He won another Grade 1 for us on his last start and were looking forward to running him. Annie Power is in here but shes more likely to run in the Champion Hurdle. Nichols Canyon is a possible as are Shaneshill and So Young.Mullins has no less than 16 entries for the Tattersalls Ireland Champion Novice Hurdle on Friday, April 29.He said: Petit Mouchoir, who was only beaten a neck in an Aintree Grade 1, has come out of that race well and he might move up to two and a half miles in this contest. We have a lot of good choices for this race and well really have to wait until closer to the day. Noel Fehily (L) riding Buveur DAir clears the last on his way to victory from David Mullins (R) riding Petit Mouchoir at Aintree Few victories last year brought Mullins more pleasure than when his son Patrick partnered Uncle Junior to win the FBD Chase for the La Touche Cup. The now 15-year-old, who also won the race in 2012, is set to bow out next week over Punchestowns famous banks course.Were really looking forward to bringing Uncle Junior again, continued Mullins. The La Touche Cup will be his swansong - hes going to be retired afterwards - but hes won two of them already and wed love to see him go out on a high.Looking at the rest of the week, Mullins added: Between the various handicaps and bumpers at the Festival we hope to have a formidable team next week.
