The New York Mets and outfielder Tommy Pham are in agreement on a one-year, $6 million deal, multiple outlets reported Wednesday.

The 34-year-old free agent split last season between the Cincinnati Reds and Boston Red Sox and batted .236 with 17 homers and 63 RBIs in 144 games.

Pham is a career .259 hitter with 114 home runs and 363 RBIs in 876 games with the St. Louis Cardinals (2014-18), Tampa Bay Rys (2018-19), San Diego Padres (2020-21), Reds and Red Sox.

In 13 career games at the Mets’ Citi Field, Pham has produced a .362/.455/.575 slash line with three homers and eight RBIs.

His role in New York will likely be as a fourth outfielder behind Starling Marte, Brandon Nimmo and Mark Canha, in addition to at-bats as a designated hitter.
