Mets release Adrian Gonzalez, recall Dominic Smith

Mets release first baseman Adrian Gonzalez Adrian Gonzalez Released by Mets After Signing 1-Year Contract in Offseason

Following the failure of a cosmetic lineup shuffle Saturday, the Mets commenced the real work of an offensive shakeup by releasing Adrián González on Sunday night.

Gonzalez, 36, went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts last night and ends his Mets tenure with a batting line of.237/.299/.373 and only six homers in 54 games.

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.

González, who has also played for the Rangers, Padres, Red Sox and Dodgers, has hit.287 with 317 home runs and made five All-Star teams in his 15-year Major League Baseball career.

In another move, the Mets designated catcher Jose Lobaton for assignment and called up utilityman Ty Kelly from Triple-A as well. Smith did appear in two games for the Mets in mid-May. He has hit 30 or more home runs four times in his career, had 100-plus RBIs seven times and is a four-time Gold Glove victor.

He slimmed down over the winter and came to spring training this year with a chance to compete for the starting job at first base.

Flores has been sidelined since May 28 by a sore lower back.
