The New York Mets granted veteran first baseman Adrian Gonzalez his unconditional release after Sunday night's 2-0 win over the New York Yankees.

Gonzalez signed a one-year deal with the Mets in the offseason after being let go by the Atlanta Braves. The 36-year-old hit .237 with six home runs and 26 RBIs during his 54 outings with the Mets, and ended his time in New York with three straight strikeouts Sunday night.

The Mets also announced their plans to designate catcher Jose Lobaton for assignment on Tuesday, while calling up first baseman Dominic Smith and utility man Ty Kelly from Triple-A Las Vegas.
