Rangers' Rougned Odor receives two horses as part of contract extension

Never look a gift horse in the mouth. Or something.

Rougned Odor is a workhorse on the field for the Rangers, and now the Rangers are responding in kind.

The second baseman just signed a six-year, $49.5 million extension with Texas, and as part of the extension, Odor gets two horses as a sweetener.

Yep, horses.

OPENING DAY: An optimist's preview of 2017

Odor had a breakout season in 2016 and played far and above the Rangers' expectations. The 22-year-old mashed 33 home runs with 88 RBI and a 105 OPS+ last season.

The Rangers plan to stop horsing around and make a run for the AL West title in 2017. The stakes are high, and they can't afford to stumble out of the gate. The roster is certainly stable, and if they can't seal the deal, they'll certainly go home with long faces this fall.

But, should their thoroughbreds start this year's race strong, they'll certainly silence the neigh-sayers.
