Texas Rangers infielder Rougned Odor reportedly turned down a six-year, $35 million contract extension that included two option years.

According to FanRag Sports, Odor was given a similar deal that the Pittsburgh Pirates gave Gregory Polanco. However, Polanco insisted that he signed a team-friendly deal. Odor declined to help the Rangers in that respect.

The report Thursday described Odor as “a feisty type who wants to fight hard for the best deal.” He gave the Rangers a counter-offer, but Texas turned it down. Not to worry though, he’s still under team control through the 2020 season.

Odor is putting together his best season yet so far this year. He’s hitting .275/.296/.491 with 16 home runs and 46 RBI.
