The New York Mets plan to offer National League Cy Young award winner R.A. Dickey a two-year contract extension, reports FoxSports.com.
Dickey, 38, is set to make $5 million next season. Dickey has not told the team his intentions, but sources say he would want at least $20 million for two years.
The Mets have been talking with Dickey while also gauging his trade value with other clubs.
“It’s still very early,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. “But between Thanksgiving and the winter meetings and (during) the winter meetings themselves — we need to have a little more clarity than we have now.”
Dickey went 20-6 with a 2.73 ERA and 230 strikeouts for the Mets, who finished in fourth place in National League East last season.
