Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen has invited David Wright to the Winter Meetings, where he is participating in things such as roster discussions, reports SNY's Andy Martino.
Martino, who reported in September that Wright could be a prominent member of the Mets' front office in 2019, noted that Wright does not have an official front office title at this time.
"I definitely can see myself enjoying the kinds of discussions that have been going on the last day or so, as opposed to a coaching or broadcasting type of thing," Wright said Tuesday, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. "Brodie has been extremely gracious in letting me be a part of this, and I certainly don't want to overstep my boundaries, so if he needs help I certainly would be willing to share and be a sounding board and just give him my perspective."
Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said last week that the team was currently working on a potential injury settlement with Wright.
Wright, whose contract is insured, is under contract through the 2020 season -- set to earn $15 million in 2019 and $12 million in 2020, during what is the final year of the eight-year, $138 million deal he signed prior to the 2013 season.
Wright, who started for the Mets on Sept. 30 after missing over two years due to multiple injuries including chronic spinal stenosis, said after playing that he doesn't envision a return to the field.
In 13 seasons with the Mets, Wright -- a seven-time All-Star -- hit .296/.376/.491 with 242 homers, 390 doubles, 970 RBI, and 949 runs scored.
Among the all-time Mets records Wright holds are hits (1,777), doubles, total bases (2,665), RBI, and runs scored. He is second all-time in homers, behind Darryl Strawberry (252).
