NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says outfielder Chris Young and the New York Mets have agreed to a $7.25 million, one-year contract.

The agreement is subject to a physical, the person said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity to the Associated Press because the deal was not yet final.

The 30-year-old outfielder hit .200 with 12 homers and 40 RBIs last season for Oakland, which acquired him from Arizona as part of a three-team trade after the 2012 season. He made $8.5 million this year, and the Athletics turned down an $11 million option.
