Jonathan Villar wasn't ready to lock himself down just yet.

The Milwaukee Brewers reportedly offered their shortstop a contract extension worth somewhere in the range of $20 million, though according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the 25-year-old is said to have "passed for now."

Villar had a breakout campaign with the Brewers in 2016 in which his 62 steals ranked as the highest mark in MLB. The infielder, who arrived in Milwaukee in a trade from the Houston Astros during the 2015 offseason, slashed .285/.369/.457 and hit 19 home runs in 156 games with Milwaukee last season.

Though Heyman doesn't note how many years the Brewers offered Villar, the infielder is currently under contract through the 2020 season.
