The Mets picked up former overall number-one pick and five-time All Star Adrian Gonzalez during the offseason. The idea was that Gonzalez would allow Dominic Smith to get more seasoning at Triple-A after Smith came up last year and did not overwhelm either at the plate or in the field. In an injury-plagued season in 2017, Gonzalez put up a .242/.287/.355 line in 252 PA. So far in 11 games and 33 Spring Training PA, he has a .167/.242/.200 line. He has the third-most ABs of anyone on the team heading into Wednesday’s game against the Marlins.
