Mets Offer R.A. Dickey Two Year Extension

The Mets reportedly will offer Cy Young Award Winner R.A. Dickey a two-year extension.

As Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports, the Mets will offer R.A. Dickey a two-year extension.

The Mets plan to offer Dickey a two-year contract extension, according to major league sources. Whether Dickey would accept such a deal remains to be seen.

Buster Olney of ESPN tweets that Dickey would demand at least 10 millions dollars of average annual value if he were to agree to a two-year extension.

Dickey agreed to a two-year extension, worth 7.8 million dollars with the Mets before the 2011 season. The contract included a team option for 2012 of 5 million dollars, which the Mets exercised. The team has reportedly been listening on trade offers for the pitcher, contingent on whether they can agree to an extension or not.

In 2012, Dickey pitched 233.2 innings, striking out 230 batters and walking only 54. He finished second in the league in wins, with 20, and his 2.73 ERA was second as well. His 230 strikeouts were first in the National League, narrowly edging out Clayton Kershaw in a close race. His 27 first place votes for Cy Young gave him a resounding victory, with the next highest number being 2 for Clayton Kershaw.
