The reigning NL Cy Young winner will appear in a Blue Jays uniform in 2013 as they make a run at AL East supremacy -- assuming the sides can work out a deal. The report says Dickey has until Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET to agree to the extension.
Dickey currently is under contract for 2013 at $5 million.
Before the trade, he sought an additional $26 million to $28 million over two years from the Mets.
An official involved in the trade discussions said 23-year-old Blue Jays catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud would be the centerpiece coming to New York in any deal.
Negotiations on a contract extension for R.A. Dickey are the only thing holding up a trade between the Mets and Blue Jays, FoxSports.com has reported, citing unnamed sources.
