The Mets and Blue Jays quickly moved toward a trade yesterday. A trade isn’t official yet, however news from Jon Heyman is that players in the deal have been agreed on, just no news yet of who is involved. At this point it looks like it is medical reviews that are left, possibly extension talks with Dickey. The Other surprising news from last night is the move might require multiple players moving both directions.
The players on the Toronto side looks like Gose and one of JP or D’Arnaud. Obviously, the Mets want D’Arnaud and if JP/Gose would have had the deal done, the deal would probably have been completed a while ago. Travis D’Arnaud is the impact player the Mets could be looking for. In the minors D’Arnaud has put up the following numbers (also I’m not sure but I think the spelling is d’Arnaud):
2012 (AAA): 279 AB, 45 R, 93 H, 21 2B, 2 3B, 16 HR, 52 RBI’s, .333 BA
2011 (AA): 424 AB, 72 R, 132 H, 33 2B, 3B, 21 HR, 78 RBI’s, .311 BA
It is also very entertaining that if D’Arnaud is traded to the Mets, he will be going back to Vegas with the Mets and Blue Jays swap of facilities.
Personally, if D’Arnaud is in this deal, I’ll do it in a heartbeat. If JP is the catcher involved, I’m not as inclined.
