R.A. Dickey has arrived at the Winter Meetings in Nashville, according to reporters on Twitter.
Dickey is at the hotel is to meet with trainer Ray Ramirez for a checkup on his abdominal surgery he underwent in October.
Last week, R.A. Dickey told reporters he would be willing to sit in on contract negotiations with the Mets during the Winter Meetings. However, he does not currently have plans to meet with the Mets on a new contract, although he is willing to return to the Winter Meetings to discuss a new contract during the week.
“I don’t really know if I can throw a percentage down on [remaining with the Mets], but that’s my hope,” Dickey said, according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports. “That’s 100 percent my hope. That being said, you never want to be taken advantage of.”
Dickey did say there has been progress on contract talks since David Wright agreed to his new extension, but did not say whether or not he was more or less optimistic a deal would get done, according to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post.
Dickey intends to be in New York on Tuesday to be on “The Daily Show.”
