On Saturday night, the Yankees agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with outfielder Chris Young. Today, Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY adds that Young can earn up to $6.325 million in incentives included with his contract.

Young, who posted an .876 OPS in the month of September after joining the Yankees, will serve as the club’s fourth outfielder behind Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner, and Carlos Beltran. Each in the trio has battled the injury bug, so it’s not inconceivable to think Young may eventually find his way into the lineup on a regular basis at some point during the 2015 season.
