The Mets made David Wright's contract extension official on Tuesday, and announced a noon news conference on Wednesday, for which Wright and COO Jeff Wilpon will travel to the Winter Meetings.

The team did not announce terms of the deal, but people with direct knowledge of the situation told the Daily News on Friday that the third baseman agreed to an eight-year, $138 million contract.

Wright, who will turn 30 later this month, has a .301 batting average in nine seasons with the Mets. He holds franchise records for hits and runs batted in, and his 204 home runs rank third in team history behind Darryl Strawberry (252) and Mike Piazza (220).
