The teams announced the trade Monday after Dickey and the Blue Jays agreed to a new contract that added two years to his existing deal.
Toronto acquired the 38-year-old knuckleballer and catchers Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas. The Mets got top catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud and catcher John Buck, plus minor league right-hander Noah Syndergaard and outfielder Wuilmer Becerra.
Dickey posted a note on Twitter thanking Mets fans for their support and saying he was ``looking forward to a new chapter with the Jays.''
