Dec. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Outfielder Brett Gardner, who led the American League in 2011 with 49 stolen bases before being limited by injury to 31 at-bats last season, is returning to the New York Yankees.

Gardner, 29, and the Yankees have agreed to a $2.85 million contract for the 2013 Major League Baseball season to avoid salary arbitration, the Associated Press reported yesterday without saying where it got the information. Gardner can earn an extra $150,000 in performance bonuses, the AP said.

Gardner was sidelined last season from mid-April until late September by a right elbow injury. He made $2.8 million in 2012, the AP said.

Gardner has 137 stolen bases and a .266 batting average in five major league seasons, all with the Yankees. He has 15 home runs and 23 triples in his career.
