Mets News: Mets select RHP Seth Rosin in Rule V Draft, Trade him to Dodgers

The Rule 5 draft took place this morning at 9:00 am ET at the Winter Meetings.

The Mets selected RHP Seth Rosin from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in the Phillies organization, but traded him to the Dodgers for cash considerations.

Rumor Mill: Dickey Rumblings and other news


Rumor Mill:

"I think the Mets are going to sign him," an executive with a club that has tried to trade for Dickey told Jon Paul Morosi.

The Mets talked to the Yankees and Nationals (prior to their Dan Haren signing) this week about Dickey, tweets Andy Martino, but the Yankees don't have the pieces and GM Sandy Alderson wouldn't trade within the division.

Dickey's asking price appears to be two years and $26MM in addition to his $5MM salary for 2013, writes Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. Mets officials have told Martino that they're sitting on at least one "acceptable" trade offer, but Martino reports that Alderson would like to keep the knuckleballer.

Although Dickey was at the Winter Meetings, he only went to congratulate David Wright on his new contract, and left without negotiating with the Mets, tweets Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. His situation remains in limbo.
