In return for Dickey, 38, the Mets might receive outfielder Anthony Gose, 22, and one of two catchers -- J.P. Arencibia, 26, or Travis d’Arnaud, 23, the website said, quoting people in Major League Baseball who requested anonymity.
The Mets also have been talking with Dickey about a contract extension.
Dickey is under contract with the Mets for 2013 at a $5 million salary and the team is prepared to offer him two more years for a total of $20 million, ESPN reported, without saying where it got the information. Dickey is seeking a combined $26 million to $28 million for 2014 and 2015, ESPN said.
