Mets, Adrian Gonzalez agree to deal

Mets, Adrian Gonzalez agree to deal

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's role at Citi Field will likely to serve as backstop and mentor for Mets first baseman Dominic Smith, a first-round selection from the 2013 draft.

That plan might be moot, as the Mets agreed to a deal with free agent first baseman Adrian Gonzalez on Saturday, multiple media outlets reported.

Gonzalez played just 71 games in 2017, the first time he didn't play at least 156 games since 2005.

Gonzalez, 35 will make $22.36 million next season in the final year of a seven-year, $154-million contract, but most will be paid by the Atlanta Braves. He hit just.242 with three homers.

Los Angeles traded Gonzalez to the Braves on December 16 in a deal that brought back outfielder Matt Kemp for his second stint with the club.

Since 1983, Mark Herrmann has coveredBrookhaven, Southampton and East Hampton on the news side, and high schools, the Islanders, the Mets and golf for Newsday sports.His assignments have includedthe Olympics, March Madness, the Triple Crown, Stanley Cup, Super Bowl and World Series.

If Smith keeps his starting job in 2018, he'll have to beat out Adrian Gonzalez, a five-time All-Star who figures to be hungry to rebound from an injury-plagued campaign.

The Dodgers traded Gonzalez to the Atlanta Braves after the season in a package deal that saw Matt Kemp return to Los Angeles while providing the team with luxury tax relief.
