ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Outfielder David DeJesus has agreed to a $10.5 million, two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Rays.



The deal announced Wednesday includes a club option for 2016. It replaces the $6.5 million salary DeJesus was owed under the 2014 option exercised by the team Sunday.

DeJesus, a .279 career hitter, was acquired from Washington in a trade on Aug. 23 and started 26 games for the Rays, helping Tampa Bay earn its fourth playoff berth in six seasons.

He batted .251 with eight homers and 38 RBIs in 122 games with the Rays, Nationals and Chicago Cubs last season. DeJesus turns 34 next month.
