R.A. Dickey Trade Rumors: Blue Jays, Mets Closing in on Deal

The New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays are closing in on a trade that centers on right-hander and 2012 National League Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey, reports Joel Sherman of The New York Post.

The trade has been developing over the past two days, as it’s become clear that the Blue Jays are the favorite to land Dickey. The deal has grown beyond just Dickey going to the Blue Jays, as there are now reportedly seven players involved.

At this point the reported deal would send Dickey, catcher Josh Thole and a non-elite prospect to the Blue Jays in exchange for prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Snydegaard, catcher John Buck and a non-elite prospect. Sherman adds that Toronto is also likely to send money or another prospect to New York to cover some of Buck’s cost.

If the Blue Jays are able to acquire Dickey, it will mean that they’ve landed a trio of front-of-the-rotation starters this winter, also including Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle.
