(Uhhhh.....Mack? A little help here on who this guy is??)
New York Mets SP R.A. Dickey agreed to a 2 yr extension with the Toronto Blue Jays to complete a trade that was agreed upon by the two teams this weekend. The extension is worth 2 yrs/$25MM plus his current 1 yr contract at $5MM. Although agreed upon the extension will not be valid until A) Dickey passes his physical and B) the two teams complete the trade agreed upon this past weekend.
ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Dickey is already in Toronto's Spring Training complex in Florida to undergo his physical which means that the official trade announcement may come later this afternoon. Olney also states that some of the $25MM agreed upon will be paid in 2013 as a signing bonus/addition to 2013 salary to reduce the per season cost for 2014 and 2015.
