The Oakland A's signed centre fielder Coco Crisp to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Friday.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the deal is worth $22.75 million and includes a vesting option for a third year based on plate appearances.

Crisp, 34, had one year left on his deal before signing the extension. The club exercised his $7.5 million option for 2014 earlier this offseason.

Crisp had a batting line of .261/.335/.444 with 22 doubles, a career-high 22 home runs, 66 RBIs and 21 stolen bases in 131 games last year. He also had 61 walks and 66 strikeouts.

TRUMBO SIGNS WITH ARIZONA

The Arizona Diamondbacks reached agreement on a one-year, $4.8 million contract with outfielder Mark Trumbo, CBSSports.com reported Thursday.

Trumbo avoided arbitration in his first year with the team after he was acquired from the Los Angeles Angels in a three-team trade in December. Trumbo had requested $5.85 million and the Diamondbacks offered $3.4 million last month.

The 27-year-old Trumbo, who remains under team control through the 2016 season, belted 34 home runs and drove in 100 runs while batting .234 in 159 games for the Angels in 2013. He has hit 95 homers in the past three seasons.

MARINERS WANT RODNEY

Reliever Fernando Rodney agreed to a two-year, $14 million contract with the Seattle Mariners, according to multiple reports.

Incentives in the deal could boost its value to $15 million, Grantland.com reported Thursday.

Rodney could move into the Mariners' closer role ahead of Danny Farquhar.

The 36-year-old right-hander converted 37 of 45 save chances with a 3.38 ERA in 66 2/3 innings for the Tampa Bay Rays last season. In 2012, Rodney notched 48 saves in 50 games with a 0.60 ERA in a sterling season for the Rays.

Farquhar and Tom Wilhelmsen could be targeted for setup roles with the Mariners.
