Adrian Gonzalez signs with the New York Mets

The New York Mets have agreed to terms with free agent first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez played in just 71 games in 2017 and hit .242 with three homers. He was traded to the Atlanta Braves this off-season who immediately released him. The 35-year-old Gonzalez is a low-risk signing for the Mets. It's unclear who will be the primary first baseman in Queens between Gonzalez and Dom Smith. Even if Gonzalez wins the job he's unlikely to carry much fantasy value.

New York Mets interested in Adrian Gonzalez

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Mets have reached out to the veteran first baseman. He was recently released by the Atlanta Braves on Monday, after being traded by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

The Mets want to send Dominic Smith to the minors for more development. Gonzalez could be a low cost fill-in, until Smith is ready for a full-time role. Gonzalez only played 71 games last season.

Adrian Gonzalez released by Braves

The Braves officially released Adrian Gonzalez, according to Mark Bowman.

Fantasy Impact

The Braves took on Gonzalez's salary in order to clear Matt Kemp's contract for next year, and the release was not surprising. It seems doubtful that Gonzalez can make much of a fantasy impact wherever he lands next year, but obviously keep an eye on him.

Adrian Gonzalez close to returning

Adrian Gonzalez hasn't played for the Dodgers since June 11th because of a herniated disc is 2-for-5 with two RBIs in his first two games of his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Impact

It'll be nice to see Gonzalez back in the Dodgers lineup, but don't expect much production from him. The Dodgers will more than likely ease him back into things so he doesn't reinjure himself again.

Adrian Gonzalez to begin rehab assignment

Adrian Gonzalez is expected to begin a rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez doesn't have a clear starting role to return to after his disappointing start to the season and Cody Bellinger's quick rise. If the veteran is able to return this season he's likely to serve as a platoon or bench player for the Dodgers.
