(TSX / STATS) -- The Cincinnati Reds and catcher Tucker Barnhart agreed to a four-year contract extension through the 2021 season with a club option for 2022, the team announced Friday.

Terms were not disclosed, but the deal guarantees Barnhart $16 million, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer. He will receive a $1.75 million signing bonus with a $7.5 million club option for the 2022 season that has a $500,000 buyout.

The 26-year-old switch-hitting Barnhart would have been eligible for arbitration for the first time following this season while under team control through 2020.
