The veteran center fielder will earn $6 million in 2012 and $7 million in 2013 with a club option of $7.5 million for 2014 that has a $1 million buyout, according to the source. Crisp would also receive a one-time bonus of $250,000 from Oakland should he be traded, the source said.

Crisp, 32, has spent the past two seasons with the A's and hit .264 with 54 RBIs and 49 stolen bases in 136 games last year.

Crisp broke in to the majors with the Cleveland Indians in 2002 before making stops with the Boston Red Sox, Kansas City Royals and the A's.
