The New York Mets have announced the release of first baseman Adrian Gonzalez after the team defeated the cross-town rival Yankees on Sunday.

The 36-year-old is a five-time All-Star for the San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox and Dodgers. He was 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in Sunday night's 2-0 win over the Yankees.

Per Joel Sherman of the New York Post, releasing Gonzalez will allow the Mets to play Jay Bruce at first base and keep Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto in the lineup when Yoenis Cespedes returns.

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. Smith, who handed the job to González by default in spring by oversleeping on the first day of games and getting hurt on the second, will be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to meet the team in Atlanta on Tuesday. 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.

The Mets' offense has been aenemic. NY (28-34) ranks 14th among the 15 National League teams in runs scored and 13th in batting average, home runs and OPS.
