Mets sign first baseman Adrian Gonzalez

The Mets are planning to sign former Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez pending a physical, reports USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

The 35-year-old five-time all-star has been a Gold Glove victor and Silver Slugger recipient.

He's unfortunately a shell of his old self both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball, so his upside isn't exactly promising. A bad back limited Gonzalez, 35, to just 71 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2017, and he was unsurprisingly left off the team's postseason roster.

BlackRock Inc. Buys 40061 Shares of Omega Healthcare Investors Inc. (OHI)
Lodestar Investment Counsel Limited Liability Corporation Il holds 0.2% of its portfolio in Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc . Korman acquired 100,000 shares of Omega Healthcare Investors stock in a transaction that occurred on Friday, December 22nd.

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. In those 71 games he batted.242 with three home runs and 30 RBIs. Rather, he would be available to replace or at least tutor Dominic Smith, whose first partial season with the Mets did not convince the club he is ready to be the everyday first baseman.

Signing as a free agent for the first time in his 14-year career, Gonzalez is still owed almost $17 million in guaranteed money from his previous contract from Atlanta, and $4.5 million from the Dodgers.

Terms of the deal with the Mets have not been reported. 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.
