NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that R.A. Dickey and the Blue Jays have agreed on a new contract, clearing the way for the New York Mets to trade the Cy Young winner to Toronto.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the trade was not yet complete. The 38-year-old knuckleballer must pass a physical before he joins the Blue Jays.
The Mets would get prized catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud as the centerpiece of the multiplayer swap.
Multiple reports say the reworked contract adds two years and $25 million to his existing deal.
