2012 - 2013 Offseason
The Mets replaced David Wright's one year deal with an eight year, $138 million deal.
They then traded R.A. Dickey and catchers Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas to the Toronto Blue Jays for the Blue Jays' top prospect, catcher Travis d'Arnaud, their top pitching prospect, Noah Syndergaard, 18-year-old outfielder Wuilmer Becerra, and veteran catcher John Buck.
Also this offseason the Mets:
- Released Jason Bay
- Signed Tim Byrdak to a minor league contract
- Traded minor-league infielder Jefry Marte for right-handed hitting outfielder Collin Cowgill.
The Mets are still expected to acquire another right-handed hitting outfielder. They also may sign a veteran pitcher to compete for the fifth spot, and some bullpen help.
