The Houston Astros and free-agent outfielder Josh Reddick have agreed on a four-year, $52 million contract, a source close to the situation told ESPN's Buster Olney.

The agreement, which is subject to a physical, was first reported by Yahoo! Sports and confirmed by ESPN.

In 155 combined games between the Oakland A's and Los Angeles Dodgers, Reddick hit .281 with 17 doubles, 10 home runs and 37 RBIs, while also providing steady defense in right field.

Reddick got off to a slow start with the Dodgers following an Aug. 1 trade, but he finished batting .258 with two home runs and nine RBIs in 47 games with his new club. He ended up tied for the major league lead with a .400 batting average in September, going 26-for-65 in 20 games for the Dodgers.

According to FanGraphs, Reddick ranked sixth among major league right fielders with six defensive runs saved.

ESPN Dodgers reporter Doug Padilla contributed to this report.
