David Wright should be getting full pay in for 2020

From the NY Post
Former Mets captain David Wright, who retired after the 2018 season, is still expected to receive his full salary — even though Major League Baseball has been shut down since mid-March and is holding out hope to play an 82-game season.

The Mets owe Wright $12 million, but his salary is partly covered by insurance. The former Mets captain received $15 million in 2019.

Though Wright is still set to receive a big payday, the highest-paid player in baseball this season might be a former slugger who has not appeared in a game since July 18, 2016.
According to The Athletic, Prince Fielder, owed $24 million in the final year of his contract with the Rangers, is to receive his full termination pay under terms of the March agreement between the owners and players regarding a shortened or canceled 2020 season.

At least this doesn't have to become the Bonilla getting paid joke.
