ANAHEIM — A person with knowledge of the agreement says former A’s catcher Jonathan Lucroy has agreed to join the Los Angeles Angels.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal has not been announced by the Angels, who had no accomplished big-league catchers on their 40-man roster.

Yahoo Sports reported the one-year, $3.35 million deal contains incentives that could raise the two-time All-Star’s compensation to over $4 million.

The Angels will be Lucroy’s fifth team in four seasons. He batted .241 with 51 RBIs in 126 games last season for the A’s.

Lucroy began his career with Milwaukee and appeared in the All-Star Game in 2014 and 2016. He played briefly for Texas and Colorado before joining Oakland.
