Adrian Gonzalez Released by Braves

Adrian Gonzalez is a free agent after being formally released by the Atlanta Braves on Monday.

The Braves acquired the 35-year-old first baseman on a five-player trade that sent Matt Kemp to the Dodgers. Gonzalez was immediately designated for assignment and placed on waivers.

The San Diego native landed on the disabled list last season for the first time in his career before finishing the year with a .242 average, three home runs and 30 RBIs in 71 games.
