Mets Willing To Discuss Extension With Dickey
According to a source, the Mets are willing to engage in extension talks with Dickey this offseason, in lieu of salary arbitration or a one-year deal. Dickey is arbitration-eligible for one more season, meaning he will be under team control in 2011 regardless of whether he agrees to a new contract. Because of that, the Mets could wait to see if the 35-year-old knuckleballer can duplicate his 2010 success.
Whether they do or not, Dickey will return next season as he is under team control and will be offered salary arbitration.
On Sunday, Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez were discussing a contract extension for RA Dickey during the Mets broadcast on SNY.
Dickey is 9-5 with a 2.57 ERA in 20 starts this season and is 6-1 with a 1.85 ERA in eight starts at Citi Field.
