  • Mets bringing on Adrian Gonzalez, sources say

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

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.

Gonzalez's role at Citi Field will likely to serve as backstop and mentor for Mets first baseman Dominic Smith, a first-round selection from the 2013 draft.

The Mets won't need to break the bank for Gonzalez.

Gonzalez, 35, is a five-time All Star and has been with the Dodgers since 2012. 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.

Gonzalez is a five-time All-Star with 311 career home runs who was limited to just 71 games with the Dodgers last season because of back problems. Gonzalez can afford to take less money for a better situation since he's still being paid $22.357 million by the Braves for 2018.

Gonzalez became a free agent after he was traded from the Dodgers to the Braves in a salary-dumping deal then released by the latter club. He was not part of the team's seven-game World Series run. A four-time Gold Glove Award-winner, his defense also suffered, as he posted a minus-5.6 UZR/150 and minus-two DRS. He has yet to prove reliable against Major League Baseball pitching, posting a.198 average with nine home runs and 26 RBI in 167 at-bats last season.
