The Mets had previously agreed to send Dickey and catcher Josh Thole to Toronto in exchange for catchers Travis D'Arnaud and John Buck as well as minor league starter Noah Syndergaard. The Mets will now send catcher Mike Nickeas to Toronto and receive 18 year old outfield prospect Wuilmer Beccera, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports. Beccera was an international free agent who signed with Toronto for 1.3 million dollars in 2012 and played in 12 games in the Gulf Coast League before a broken jaw ended his year.Tags: Baseball, John Buck, Josh Thole, Mike Nickeas, MLB, New York, New York Mets, Noah Syndergaard, R.A.
