    Negotiations on a contract extension for R.A. Dickey are the only thing holding up a trade between the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays, FoxSports.com has reported, citing unnamed sources.

    The reigning NL Cy Young winner will appear in a Blue Jays uniform in 2013 as they make a run at AL East supremacy -- assuming the sides can work out a deal. The report says Dickey has until Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET to agree to the extension.


    According to FoxSports.com, there is a tentative agreement in place to send the knuckleballer to Toronto, where he would join fellow newcomers Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle in a bulked-up rotation.

    Dickey currently is under contract for 2013 at $5 million.

    Before the trade, he sought an additional $26 million to $28 million over two years from the Mets.

    An official involved in the trade discussions said 23-year-old Blue Jays prospect catching Travis d'Arnaud would be the centerpiece coming to New York in any deal.

    Multiple reports indicate the Mets also will acquire catcher John Buck, Class A right-hander Noah Syndergaard and cash while sending catcher Josh Thole to Toronto.

    Sickels on the trade.

    Mets Trade R.A. Dickey to Blue Jays for Prospects

    The New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays have reportedly completed their trade negotiations. As expected, the Mets are sending knuckleballing right-hander R.A Dickey north of the border, accompanied by catcher Josh Thole. In exchange, the Mets are receiving top catching prospect Travis D'Arnaud, top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard, and veteran catcher John Buck.

    The deal is contingent on the Blue Jays negotiating a contract extension with Dickey.

    Here's the scoop on the prospects involved. There are reportedly going to be two "non-impact" prospects also included, and when we have those names we will analyze them too.

    Travis D'Arnaud, C: This is the second blockbuster trade of D'Arnaud's career. Originally drafted by the Phillies in the supplemental first round in 2007 from high school in Lakewood, California, D'Arnaud came to Toronto in the 2009 Roy Halladay deal. After a mediocre '10 season, he exploded with a .311/.371/.542 line in Double-A in 2011, then followed up with a .333/.380/.595 mark in Triple-A in 2012.

    D'Arnaud is a right-handed hitter, listed at 6-2, 195, bon February 10, 1989. Scouts like his power and anticipate he'll be a significant threat with the bat, plausibly being a 20-homer a year guy. He's hit for average over the last two seasons, although his home parks have been friendly for offense and he's probably not a .300 hitter in the majors. His plate discipline isn't the best and he doesn't draw many walks, but he keeps his strikeout rates under control. His defense is well-regarded, with his mobility, arm strength, and leadership skills all ranked as solid or better.

    Although he's not perfect, D'Arnaud has a good balance of offensive and defensive skills. He is either the best or second-best catching prospect in baseball, with Mike Zunino of the Seattle Mariners being his only serious competitor.


    Noah Syndergaard, RHP: Syndergaard was drafted by the Blue Jays in the supplemental first round in 2010, from high school in Mansfield, Texas. He established himself as one of the top right-handed pitching prospects in the game this year, posting a 2.60 ERA with a 122/31 K/BB in 104 innings for Lansing in the Low-A Midwest League, allowing just 81 hits.

    A 6-5, 200 pound right-hander, Syndergaard was born August 29, 1992. With ideal pitcher size and clean mechanics, he generates 92-97 MPH velocity with his fastball. He also has a very good changeup, and made significant strides refining his curveball this year. Although the breaking ball needs a bit more work, ultimately he should have three plus major league pitches. He has a good feel for pitching and is more refined than the typical power pitcher in his age cohort.
    He projects as a number two starter if all goes according to plan.



    With this trade plus the big deal with the Marlins earlier this fall, the Blue Jays are going all-in for a pennant run in 2013 and have traded off most of their top farm assets to do so. The Mets, meanwhile, have cashed in the ultimate reclamation project in Dickey, receiving two elite prospects in return.

    Wait this isn't news though. We knew about this. We still need to know the specifics of the contract extension and the other prospects involved.

    How important can those other 2 pieces be though? I'm sure they would have been leaked by now.

    Blue Jays continue to negotiate with Bo McKinnis on extension for Dickey and price for Toronto higher than it was going to be for Mets
