Wright: 'Where I've wanted to play from Day 1'

  •  

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - David Wright says he never considered leaving the New York Mets.

The star third baseman held a news conference Wednesday at the winter meetings to discuss his $138 million, eight-year contract, a deal finalized Tuesday.

Wright, a six-time All-Star who broke into the major leagues with the Mets, says "This is where I've wanted to play from Day 1."

He gets $11 million next year, down from the $16 million he had been scheduled to make. His salaries will be $20 million in each of the following five seasons, $15 million in 2019 and $12 million in 2020. Some of the money will be deferred.
