The Mets are planning to sign former Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez pending a physical, reports USA Today's Bob Nightengale. No word on the terms, but it'll likely be a short deal with not a lot of money guaranteed.

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. The injury ended Gonzalez's streak of playing in at least 150 games at 11 seasons. When he returned, National League Rookie of the Year Cody Bellinger had taken over for the NL champion Dodgers.

He was traded from Los Angeles to Atlanta as part of a five-player deal in December and released two days later.
