According to Bob Nightengale, the Mets have decided to sign Free Agent 1B Adrian Gonzalez. The 35-year-old Gonzalez, who was traded from the Dodgers to the Braves and subsequently released earlier in the offseason slashed a disappointing .242/.287/.355 in 71 games last season. Gonzalez is most likely going to be a part-time first baseman for the Mets, due to Dominic Smith’s youth and lack of experience.
It is a low-risk, potentially-high reward season if Gonzalez has a bounce-back year. This deal is pending a physical and has not been confirmed by the Mets.
