The Mets like Blue Jays catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud in a swap for R.A. Dickey.
The Mets are working Saturday morning toward completing a trade that would send R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays, a major league executive aware of the talks told ESPNNewYork.com.

The Mets desperately need catching and outfield help, and have been seeking 23-year-old catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud.

Two baseball sources told ESPNNewYork.com on Saturday morning that Dickey has not yet engaged Toronto in extension talks, nor has he been asked to undergo a physical.

An executive aware of the talks added that the Mets unexpectedly had been approached by another team Friday night, and that the full framework of a deal with Toronto had not yet been reached.
