Mets Release Adrian Gonzalez

Mets Release Adrian Gonzalez

Shortly after beating the Yankees in the Subway Series finale, the Mets released struggling first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

The 36-year-old is a five-time All-Star for the San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox and Dodgers.

He batted.241 with six home runs and 26 RBIs in 53 games this season.

Following a 2-0 win over the New York Yankees, the Mets announced Gonzalez had been given his release and Dominic Smith will be recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday.

He recounted a request from Kim to pass a message to former President Obama , as a prerequisite for possible talks. "I asked him. Rodman told CNN's Chris Cuomo , he knew nothing about Kim or North Korea at the time and saw it simply as a charity trip.


Reyes, who has played the majority of his career with NY and is well-liked by the organization and in the team's clubhouse, could still be seeking opportunities with other clubs, Martino adds, which may be the delay in a decision being made. Smith registered a.198 batting average and hit nine home runs in 49 games last season.

In another move, the Mets designated catcher Jose Lobaton for assignment and called up utilityman Ty Kelly from Triple-A as well.

The Mets' offense has been aenemic.

New York's win over the Yankees last night was a nice little pick-me-up after a awful skid. NY (28-34) ranks 14th among the 15 National League teams in runs scored and 13th in batting average, home runs and OPS.
