BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Mets may tap player insurance as former star heals

Reprints

New York Mets former star David Wright hasn't played in nearly two years, but Chief Operating Officer Jeff Wilpon confirmed that insurance will allow the team to recoup 75% of his pay provided he misses at least 60 games, NJ.com reported Tuesday.

The insurance policy taken out on Mr. Wright's contract is coming in handy as the seven-time All-Star third baseman has been off the field since May 2016. Rehab from a neck injury interrupted his shoulder surgery, which was then interrupted by back surgery, the news outlet reported.

How long will he be out? No word. The spinal stenosis persists, and it always will, since there's no cure for the degenerative condition, only ways to manage the pain, according to the news outlet.
