Once Wright misses 60 days, the Mets recoup 75 percent of the salary for the remainder of the captain's absence, Fox's Ken Rosenthal tweets.
Wright last played on April 14.
He is owed $20 million a season through 2018, then $15 million in 2019 and $12 million in 2020.
The New York Mets are covered in case David Wright's back stenosis causes him to miss 60 days, according to reports.
