Hot Stove: R.A. Dickey reportedly finalizes extension with Blue Jays

The Blue Jays and pitcher R.A. Dickey agreed on a two-year, $25 million extension, according to multiple reports [1], allowing completion of a trade that will send the 2012 National League [2] Cy Young winner from the Mets to Toronto.

The Mets will receive highly regarded catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud., a 23-year-old who hit .333 with 16 home runs and 52 RBIs at Triple-A Las Vegas before tearing a knee ligament in June, requiring season-ending surgery.

New York also reportedly will receiver Single-A right-hander Noah Syndergaard and major league catcher John Buck [3], while sending catcher Josh Thole to Toronto.

Dickey, 38, went 20-6 with a 2.73 ERA this past season. The knuckleballer is signed for $5.25 million in 2013 but could not agree on an extension with the Mets, leading to the trade.
