Report: R.A. Dickey, Blue Jays agree on pre-trade extension

R.A. Dickey and the Blue Jays have reportedly reached an agreement on an extension -- estimated at approximately $26 million over two years -- that will set into motion a seven-player trade involving the Mets, according to a report from Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star.

The trade, which reportedly will include Dickey, catcher Josh Thole and a Mets prospect for the Blue Jays' highly regarded catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud, right-handed pitcher Noah Syndergaard, catcher John Buck and another prospect, could be announced as early as Monday night, pending a physical.

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Dickey's extension will be worth $25 million over two years.

Dickey, the 2012 National League Cy Young award winner, was reportedly seeking $26 million for two seasons from the Mets, added on to his $5 million salary for 2013.
