David Wright denies reports on contract talks

Name: fl-marlins-a

Wright denied that he and the Mets were in serious negotiations, saying the reports are false.

David Wright told MLB Trade Rumors that the rumors about him and the Mets being close on an extension are not true.

I have said from day 1 that I want to play my entire career with the New York Mets. I remain hopeful that goal can be achieved. However, I am disappointed by the reports I read today which are inaccurate," said Wright.

Wright's agent, Seth Levinson, was less revealing in the MLB Trade Rumors report:

"Discussions with the Mets are ongoing. We don't anticipate a deal any time soon. However, things can always change. I will not characterize the negotiations or comment on the accuracy or inaccuracy of what is being reported," Levinson said.

Wright is entering into the final year of a 7-year $70 million extension. He was selected by the Mets in the first round of the 2001 Amateur Draft, 38th overall.

Wright hit 21 home runs in 2012, and batted .306/.391/.492.
