September Call-Ups: Mike Nickeas returns for a shot at some redemption.

According to Jon Heyman via twitter, Mets catcher Mike Nickeas will be the third player included in the deal that will send R.A. Dickey and Josh Thole to Toronto that recently became official with Dickey’s passing his physical.

The Mets will receive 18-year old outfielder Wuilmer Becerra as the fourth player involved in the deal. Heyman describes Becerra as “a prospect but aways away and nowhere near the level of the other 2 prospects the Mets got.” Becerra joins top prospect catcher Travis d’Arnaud, hurler Noah Syndergaard and veteran backstop John Buck.

Looks like an offical announcement should come later tonight.
