Mets Sign David Wright to 8 Year, $138 Million Contract

Largest in the MLB franchise's history


Third baseman David Wright signed a contract extension with the New York Mets through 2020, fulfilling what General Manager Sandy Alderson said was the team's top priority before next season.

Wright, 29, will appear today in a news conference at the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tennessee, where reported free-agent pitcher Dan Haren had agreed to a $13 million contract for 2013 with the Washington Nationals.
