The Royals seem "very interested" in Dickey, Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports (all Twitter links).
However, they wouldn't be interested in sending top prospect Wil Myers to New York for the knuckleballer.
Dickey, James Shields and Jeremy Hellickson remain in play for the Royals, Dutton reports. However, it now seems unlikely that the Red Sox will move Jon Lester.
The Mets view the Blue Jays, Royals and Rangers as the most likely trade suitors for Dickey, ESPN.com's Buster Olney reports (on Twitter). In Olney's view Dickey's contract demands may seem more reasonable based on some recent free agent contracts.
The Blue Jays and the Rangers are involved in the talks for Dickey, Heyman tweets. Toronto is thought to be unlikely to part with Travis D'Arnaud but may be willing to trade Anthony Gose.
The Rangers like Dickey but the Mets' prospect request at this point is too rich for them, tweets Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
The Mets are hoping for the Rangers in the Dickey trade talks, tweets Jon Heyman.
