Mets, Adrian Gonzalez agree to deal

The Dodgers Adrian Gonzalez hits a solo home

The Amazin's have agreed to terms with free agent Adrian Gonzalez pending a physical, a source confirmed to the Daily News. 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.

After coming up with the Rangers, Gonzalez spent five years with the Padres, where he emerged as one of the league's premier first baseman.

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

Gonzalez missed most of last season due to a herniated back disk. He has been a star and pivotal part of teams through much of his 14-year career but was limited by injury to 71 games last season and was not part of the Dodgers' run to Game 7 of the World Series. When he returned, National League Rookie of the Year Cody Bellinger had taken over for the NL champion Dodgers. He hit.242 with a.287 on-base percentage, a.355 slugging percentage, three homers and 30 RBIs.

PPL has a net profit margin of 20.60% and is more profitable than the average company in the Electric Utilities industry. California Pub Employees Retirement owns 141,395 shares. 84,000 are owned by Pensionfund Dsm Netherlands.

Gonzalez became a free agent after he was traded from the Dodgers to the Braves in a salary-dumping deal then released by the latter club.

For his career, Gonzalez has a.288/.359/.488 batting line with 311 home runs and 1,176 RBIs in 1,875 games. A four-time Gold Glove Award-winner, his defense also suffered, as he posted a minus-5.6 UZR/150 and minus-two DRS.

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