1B Gonzalez reportedly agrees to deal with Mets

14 January 2018

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

When the New York Mets signed free agent Jay Bruce on Wednesday, there was talk that the veteran outfielder might see some action at first base.

Gonzalez, who will be 36 next season, would be a cheap stopgap who would not prevent Smith, one of the Mets' top prospects, from taking over at first base in the team's eyes. Gonzalez is still due nearly $17 million guaranteed in his previous contract from Atlanta and $4.5 million from Los Angeles, leaving him available to sign for the league minimum.

Gonzalez missed most of last season due to a herniated back disk. Gonzalez, a five-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove victor, saw his streak of 11 consecutive seasons with at least 150 games played snapped after being limited to just 71 games with the Dodgers last season because of injury. He was then traded to the Red Sox and spent two years in Boston before he was traded to Los Angeles in 2012. He is a career.288 batter with 311 home runs, including.242 with only three home runs in 2017.

He is a five-time All-Star and a four-time Gold Glove victor. He has yet to prove reliable against Major League Baseball pitching, posting a.198 average with nine home runs and 26 RBI in 167 at-bats last season.

In New York, Gonzalez's likeliest competition for playing time at first base is Dominic Smith, who struggled as a rookie in 2017.
