So, the Mets look to be getting just about the best catching prospect in the minor leagues for the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner. Passan notes that there will be plenty of other players in the deal. That makes sense; Jays’ GM Alex Anthopoulos pulled off some of the biggest multi-player deals recently.
If the Mets were going to move Dickey, d’Arnaud is the kind of prospect, a nearly ready, up the middle player with legit Major League power, they had to have in return.
More later Saturday when more of the names on both sides become clearer.
