Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Designated-hitter Jim Thome has agreed to a one-year contract to return to the Philadelphia Phillies, the Associated Press reported, citing a person familiar with the negotiations it didn’t identify.

Thome, 41, who hit a career 604 home runs, will receive $1.25 million from the Major League Baseball club if he passes a physical today, AP said.

Thome, who played with the Phillies from 2003-2005, was acquired by the Cleveland Indians in August from the Minnesota Twins, the wire service said.

Thome is a .277 hitter with 1,674 runs batted in during his 21-year career.
