In those 71 games, Gonzalez batted.242/.287/.355 with three home runs and 30 RBIs. 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. He hadn't experienced a stretch that poor since his first two Major League Baseball seasons when he came up as a member of the Texas Rangers.
On Dec. 16, Gonzalez was traded by the Dodger to the Braves in a five-player deal that helped the Dodgers work toward getting under the 2018 luxury tax threshold.
Gonzalez will be a free agent after the upcoming season.
He has been a star and pivotal part of teams through much of his 14-year career but was limited by injury to 71 games last season and was not part of the Dodgers' run to Game 7 of the World Series.
This is where the Mets came in.
The Mets are bringing in big-name competition for first baseman Dominic Smith, a former first-round pick who is coming off a disappointing rookie season.

African Ambassadors to United Nations condemn Trump over 'shithole' comment
Trump tweeted Friday morning: " The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used ". Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a briefing that no deal had been reached yet.
Gonzalez, who will be 36 next season, would be a cheap stopgap who would not prevent Smith, one of the Mets' top prospects, from taking over at first base in the team's eyes. In 49 games, the 22-year-old Smith batted just.198 with nine home runs and 26 RBI.
USA Today first reported the agreement between Gonzalez and the Mets.
If he struggles, then his salary is easily releasable and the Mets would have to deal with a platoon of Smith, Wilmer Flores and even Bruce at first base for the rest of the season.
