Adrian Gonzalez: Stages workout for teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez held a workout for teams earlier in January, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

The 36-year-old seems fully intent on playing in 2019, but he's unlikely to have much of a market after slashing .237/.299/.373 with only six home runs in 187 plate appearances last season with the Mets. If he's willing to accept a minor-league deal, Gonzalez shouldn't have much trouble getting a look in a big-league camp this spring, but the odds are probably against him making an Opening Day roster.

Adrian Gonzalez: Looking to play next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez told MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that he plans to play next season.

Gonzalez opened the season as the Mets' primary first baseman, but he was cut loose after hitting just .237/.299/.373 with six homers through 54 games. It sounds like the veteran first baseman wants to play one more season before retiring in an effort to end his playing career on a positive note. Seeing as Gonzalez has played in just 125 games over the past two seasons, hitting .240/.292/.363 with nine homers over that stretch, he doesn't figure to carry much fantasy value even if he does latch on somewhere.

Adrian Gonzalez: Let go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez was released by the Mets on Sunday,

Gonzalez was cut after going 1-for-16 in his past five games. He appeared in 53 games for New York this season and put together a .241/.304/.380 batting line with six homers and 26 RBI.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Records base knock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with two RBI during Friday's loss to the Cubs.

Gonzalez drove in two runs in the eighth with a single to center, but it wasn't enough as the Cubs rallied to win 7-4. Through 47 games this season, he's slashing .260/.325/.411 with six home runs and 26 RBI.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Situated on bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.

Gonzalez will take his usual seat on the bench with a southpaw in Jose Quintana starting for the Cubs. Jay Bruce will pick up a start at first base in his stead, opening up a spot for Jose Bautista to start in the outfield.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Drives in two Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Braves.

He's now racked up a .313/.353/.469 slash line over his last 10 games with a homer, four RBI and four runs, although the home run and all the RBI have come in his last three contests. Gonzalez's production will likely remain spotty hitting sixth in an inconsistent Mets offense, but the 36-year-old is still capable of making a contribution in deeper formats.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Pops sixth homer Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

The veteran slugger now has six homers and 22 RBI in 44 games to go along with a .255/.325/.409 slash line -- an improvement on his awful 2017, but still below the standards of his best years with the Dodgers. Gonzalez should continue to see consistent at-bats for now, but if the reeling Mets decide to pack it in for the season, expect them to turn first base over to a younger player, whether it's Dominic Smith or top prospect Peter Alonso.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Out of Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is out of Monday's lineup against the Braves, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

With the Mets facing a southpaw (Max Fried), Gonzalez will head to the bench and Jay Bruce will move in to play first base, hitting fifth. The emergence of Brandon Nimmo could push Bruce to first base more often once Yoenis Cespedes (hip) comes off the disabled list in a couple weeks.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Out of lineup against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

As per usual, Gonzalez will head to the bench with a southpaw (Caleb Smith) on the mound for the opposition. Wilmer Flores will slide over to first base in his stead, opening up a spot for Jose Reyes to start at the hot corner.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Heads to bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Left-hander Patrick Corbin will take the ball for Arizona on Saturday, resulting in Wilmer Flores getting the start at first base. Righty Clay Buchholz is expected to start for the Diamondbacks on Sunday, so Gonzalez may be back in the lineup for that one.

May 16, 2018 11:28 AM
Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Not in lineup against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is out of the lineup versus Toronto on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

With left-hander J.A. Happ on the mound for the Blue Jays, manager Mickey Callaway decided to keep Gonzalez on the bench in favor of Wilmer Flores at first base. Over the course of 31 games, Gonzalez is hitting .258 with a .766 OPS and 20 RBI.

May 16, 2018 01:12 PM
Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is not starting Tuesday against Toronto, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The 36-year-old has done enough to keep his job through his first 30 games with the Mets, though he's certainly not setting the world on fire, hitting .250/.327/.427 with five homers. Wilmer Flores will slide over to first base with a lefty on the mound for the opposition, with Jose Reyes getting a start at third.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Goes yard twice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and a third run scored in Monday's win over the Reds.

He's already surpassed last season's homer total with five, and Gonzalez's .256/.330/.463 slash line through 26 games has been respectable. The veteran will continue to sit against most left-handed pitchers, but his role should allow him to supply decent fantasy production.

May 6, 2018 10:32 AM
Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Out against a lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

Gonzalez typically sits against left-handed pitching, and Sunday's matchup against southpaw Kyle Freeland will be no exception. Wilmer Flores will man first base and bat fifth in the order in his stead.

May 5, 2018 12:36 PM
Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is out of the lineup against Colorado on Friday.

Gonzalez will head back to the bench for the second time in the past three games after going 1-for-4 during Thursday's loss to the Braves. In his place, Jay Bruce will pick up a start at first base while Brandon Nimmo gets the nod in right field.

May 2, 2018 03:24 PM
Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Out of lineup against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

Gonzalez will retreat to the bench with left-hander Sean Newcomb on the hill for the Braves. Wilmer Flores will take his place at first base and bat second in the order.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Plates five runs in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 3-for-6 with a home run, double and five RBI in the Mets' 14-2 triumph over the Padres on Sunday.

Gonzalez picked a good time to post season-high hit and RBI totals with the Mets having recently warmed up to the idea of using outfielder Jay Bruce at first base at least occasionally, according to Tim Healey of Newsday. While his showing Sunday bumped his OPS nearly 100 points and should temporarily quell any discussions of a changing of the guard at first base, Gonzalez will still need to deliver extra-base hits on a consistent basis over his next several starts in order to build job security. With a .227 average, three home runs, 17 RBI and seven runs across 77 plate appearances this season, Gonzalez ranks as one of the weaker fantasy performers among everyday first basemen.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Sits again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is out of the lineup for the second straight day Saturday against the Padres, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Gonzalez has sat against every lefty the Mets have faced so far this season and will do so again against Joey Lucchesi on Saturday. The veteran is hitting just .203/.300/.322, though his platoon partner Wilmer Flores is hardly making a claim for a bigger role, as he's hitting just .213/.288/.383 himself.

April 27, 2018 06:48 PM
Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Hits bench against lefty Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is not in the lineup Friday against the Padres.

As is typically the case, Gonzalez will retreat to the bench with a southpaw taking the mound for San Diego. Wilmer Flores will replace him at first base once more.

April 20, 2018 11:04 PM
Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: Rides pine versus lefty Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is not in the lineup Friday against the Braves.

Gonzalez is looking relatively good at the plate so far with a .772 OPS, but he'll head to the bench to avoid a lefty-on-lefty matchup with Braves starter Sean Newcomb. Wilmer Flores will pick up a start at first base in his place.
