(Reuters) – The Cleveland Indians reached an agreement on a new contract with outfielder Michael Brantley, Major League Baseball reported on its website on Monday.

The 26-year-old Brantley will sign a four-year deal worth $25 million that features an option for a fifth year.

The Indians were eager to lock up Brantley, a key member of last season’s turnaround that saw Cleveland make a rare trip to the post-season.

Enjoying their first winning season since 2007, the Indians finished 92-70 and lost in the American League Wild Card game.

Brantley batted .284 with 10 home runs and 73 RBIs last season, his fifth with the Indians.
