(AP) Outfielder Brett Gardner and the New York Yankees have agreed to a four-year contract worth $52 million.


Yankees general manager Brian Cashman announced the deal on Sunday. The new pact starts in 2015.


The deal includes a fifth-year club option for $12.5 million and a $2 million buyout. If traded, Gardner would receive $1 million.


Gardner has a $5.6 million, one-year contract for this season.


The Yankees are moving Gardner to left field this year after the signing of free agent center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury to a $153 million, seven-year contract in December.


The 30-year-old Gardner hit .273 last year with eight home runs, 52 RBIs and 24 stolen bases.
