Wright has agreed to a new package that will keep him in a Mets uniform at least through 2020, a major league source told ESPNNewYork.com. The deal is worth slightly less than $140 million, the source added.
Wright had been under Mets’ control for next season at $16 million. The new deal should lock in Wright for seven additional years at approximately $122 million.
The total package will surpass the six-year, $137.5 million deal Johan Santana agreed as a prerequisite of being traded to the Mets.
