Adrian Gonzalez hits solo home run Thursday

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for- 4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez now has two home runs on the season to go with 11 RBI. The former all-star is well past his prime and fantasy owners should stay away from rostering the left-hander outside of the deepest of formats.

Adrian Gonzalez hits grand slam in win over Nationals

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with a grand slam Sunday night against the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez is not the player he used to be, but he is off to a decent start to his 2018 season. However, it is highly unlikely he will ever be mixed league relevant again. Gonzalez is merely keeping the seat warm at first base for when Mets prospect Dominic Smith is ready to take over.

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.
