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.Read more here.
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.
