Adrian Gonzalez has agreed to a deal with the New York Mets pending a physical, according to ESPN and multiple reports. No word on the terms, but it'll likely be a short deal with not a lot of money guaranteed.
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.
A bargain pickup like Gonzalez fits in with the Mets' stated plan of opening this season under the $154 million payroll with which they began 2017.

Then the Warriors went out and dropped a season-best 43 first-quarter points on the stunned Raptors on 74% shooting. Toronto averages 19.4 points off turnovers per game, which ranks first in the league.
Gonzalez will be a free agent after the upcoming season.
When the New York Mets signed free agent Jay Bruce on Wednesday, there was talk that the veteran outfielder might see some action at first base. He didn't see action in the playoffs, and National League Rookie of the Year Cody Bellinger spent much of the year playing first base while belting 39 homers.
For his career, Gonzalez is hitting.288 with 311 home runs. He was not part of the team's seven-game World Series run. He played for the Texas Rangers, San Diego Padres and the Boston Red Sox before joining the Dodgers in midseason in 2012.

Producer, Fred Gaudelli and sportscaster Al Micheals of NBC Sports talked to a TV Critics group on Tuesday. The day's take is expected to be around $500 million, Lovinger said during a conference call on Thursday.
After Smith struggled with a.198 batting average in 49 games with the big league club last season, though, the Mets were in the market for help at the corner.
This signing would have been exciting, if it was 2010, but unfortunately in this day and age, Gonzalez is a player that frankly shouldn't have even been looked at by this team.
