According to a tweet by Newsday's David Lennon (@dplennon), an MRI revealed that Mets starter R.A. Dickey has a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his right foot and is day-to-day.

(The plantar fascia, for the non-podiatrists out there, are the connective tissues that support the arch of the foot.)

Day-to-day sounds like a pretty mild diagnosis considering the pain Dickey was in as he was helped off the field after falling while running to cover first base in the third inning of Thursday's loss to the Cubs. But he apparently expects to make his next start, according to a tweet by SNY's Kevin Burkhardt just a moment ago.
