Reports: Mets Planning to Sign Former Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez

It's the second significant move for NY this week.

The Mets and free agent first baseman Adrian Gonzalez have agreed upon a deal, pending a physical, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

The Mets won't need to break the bank for Gonzalez.

With Atlanta on the hook for his guaranteed $22 million salary in 2018, the Mets won't have to pay Gonzalez much of anything, as FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman notes.

Gonzalez missed most of last season due to a herniated back disk.




After polishing off a six-year track with the Dodgers in 2017, Gonzalez was dealt to the Braves during a five-player swap in December.

The Mets have first baseman Dominic Smith already on the roster, who would presumably be the team's starter on Opening Day should they choose not to make a move in free agency.

After coming up with the Rangers, Gonzalez spent five years with the Padres, where he emerged as one of the league's premier first baseman. Playing 49 games, the left-handed-hitting Smith batted.198 with nine homers, 26 RBIs and 49 strikeouts in 167 at-bats.

For his career, Gonzalez has a.288/.359/.488 batting line with 311 home runs and 1,176 RBIs in 1,875 games. Gonzalez was traded from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Atlanta Braves earlier this offseason, but was released by his new team shortly thereafter. A four-time Gold Glove Award-winner, his defense also suffered, as he posted a minus-5.6 UZR/150 and minus-two DRS. Smith batted.198 with nine home runs and 26 RBIs in 49 games down the stretch for NY in 2017.
