NEW YORK -- The Mets' outfield is getting Younger.

In their first significant move of the off-season, the Mets agreed with outfielder Chris Young on a $7.25 million, one-year contract, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

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.

A 30-year-old outfielder, Young 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. His best year was 2010, when he batted .257 for the Diamondbacks with 27 homers and 91 RBIs.

Young joins a projected outfield that includes Eric Young Jr. -- the NL stolen base leader -- and Juan Lagares. Andrew Brown also is competing for a job.

Coming off its fifth straight losing season, New York has more payroll flexibility this off-season.

Young made $8.5 million in the final guaranteed season of a $28 million, five-year contract, and the Athletics turned down an $11 million option.
