FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that R.A. Dickey has agreed to a two-year, $25 million extension with the Blue Jays.
As it turns out, he'll receive the same amount he had been seeking from the Mets. The extension obviously won't become official until the trade goes through, which will occur after Dickey passes a physical. Though there's certainly some risk that comes with giving a 38-year-old a two-year extension, it's a very reasonable sum to pay for a guy coming off a Cy Young award. And, as a knuckleballer, Dickey has a relatively "younger" arm than your typical 38-year-old. Once the deal becomes official, the Jays will get Josh Thole and an unnamed, non-elite prospect along with Dickey, while the Mets will receive Travis d'Arnaud, John Buck, Noah Syndergaard and an unnamed, non-elite prospect.
