NEW YORK (AP) - David Wright will have to wait until 2025 to receive all the money from his $138 million, eight-year contract with the New York Mets.
The deal includes $15.5 million in salary that is being deferred without interest. The money is to be paid in equal installments of $3.1 million each June 30 from 2021-25.
Wright's previous contract called for him to make $16 million next season, and the All-Star third baseman's 2013 salary was reduced to $11 million, of which $3 million will be deferred. That means the Mets will have an $8 million cash savings next year.
