In the MLB, contracts these days are reaching unbelievable numbers.
I mean, just look at Bryce Harper. Experts are already expecting him to land a $300 million deal once he's officially a free agent.
However, when a report comes out that a young star had a $100 million deal before the start of the season, but turned it down, it's going to come as a shock to most. And for Indians' star Francisco Lindor, this is exactly the case.
According to SI's Tom Verducci, the Indians were in a position to prepare a package for Lindor in the $100 million contract extension neighborhood. However, Lindor turned it down.
While $100 million seems like an insane amount of money for the average fan, it looks like Lindor thinks he can land more money in the market. His numbers seem to back that up.
Thus far this season, the 23-year-old shortstop is hitting .328, with four home runs and 10 RBI. He's got a sweet stroke and an outstanding glove.
We'll see if the Indians can reach an agreement with him on their next attempt.
