Mets bringing on Adrian Gonzalez, sources say

Share

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

Atlanta remains on the hook for virtually all of Gonzalez's guaranteed $21.5 million salary in 2018, with the Mets needing to pay only the minimum salary of $545,000.

Gonzalez gives the Mets a veteran presence at first, where 22-year-old Dominic Smith had been projected as the franchise's future. The injury ended Gonzalez's streak of playing in at least 150 games at 11 seasons.

Here is why passport may no longer be a valid address proof
As of now, the last page of the passport showcases the address, while the first page has the photograph and name. This would mean that the new passports will no longer be useful as a proof of address for various applications.

It's the second significant move this week for the Mets, who brought back free-agent outfielder Jay Bruce on a three-year, $39 million contract Wednesday.

Gonzalez was released by the Braves earlier this offseason after they acquired him from the Dodgers in a big trade that sent Matt Kemp over to Los Angeles.

The Mets won't need to break the bank for Gonzalez. He is a career.288 batter with 311 home runs, including.242 with only three home runs in 2017.

To measure price-variation, we found AMAT's volatility during a week at 2.52% and during a month it has been found around 2.24%. The company has a market cap of $56,460.00, a P/E ratio of 16.86, a price-to-earnings-growth ratio of 1.04 and a beta of 1.81.

Gonzalez, who will be 36 next season, would be a cheap stopgap who would not prevent Smith, one of the Mets' top prospects, from taking over at first base in the team's eyes.

Gonzalez spent six seasons as member of the Dodgers, named to the All-Star team once while also winning a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger during his time there. Smith batted.198 with nine home runs and 26 RBIs in 49 games down the stretch for NY in 2017.
