Mets bringing on Adrian Gonzalez, sources say

Mets bringing on Adrian Gonzalez, sources say

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

The Mets are bringing in big-name competition for first baseman Dominic Smith, a former first-round pick who is coming off a disappointing rookie season.

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. The injury ended Gonzalez's streak of playing in at least 150 games at 11 seasons.

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

The result was the deal that sent Gonzalez, right-hander Brandon McCarthy, infielder Charlie Culberson, left-hander Scott Kazmir and cash to the Braves in exchange for outfielder Matt Kemp. 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.

In those 71 games, Gonzalez batted.242/.287/.355 with three home runs and 30 RBIs.

Gonzalez, 35, is a five-time All Star and has been with the Dodgers since 2012.

Now healthy, Gonzalez figures to compete in spring training with Smith for the starting first base job. Duda was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays during the season, and Smith, 22, struggled offensively, batting just.198.
