Mets’ Wright Signs 7-Year Pact to Be Best-Paid Player, WFAN Says

Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- New York Mets third baseman David Wright signed a seven-year, $122 million extension that will make him the best-paid player in the baseball team’s history, radio station WFAN said, without saying where it got the information.

The 29-year-old will get a total of $138 million when the new contract, which starts in 2014, and the final year of his current deal, which pays him $16 million, are combined, the New York station said. He’s played for the Mets for his entire nine-year career.

The contract surpasses the six-year deal signed by pitcher Johan Santana, who is being paid $137.5 million, WFAN said.
