David Wright has passed his physical, essentially making his new eight-year, $138 million contract official. Both Wright and Jeff Wilpon will fly to Nashville on Wednesday to hold a press conference announcing the deal.
Also some news on Scott Hairston from Kevin Burkhardt who says that the Mets will be meeting with Scott Hairston’s agent today in Nashville.
Both Hairston and the Mets have shown a real interest in him continuing on with the team. There’s a very strong possibility that he re-signs with the Mets on a two-year deal.
The 32-year-old Hairston is holding out for the first multi-year deal of his career after making $1.1 million and hitting .263/.299/.504 with 20 homers and 57 RBI in 377 at-bats with the Mets last year.
