Encarnacion will put contract extension talks with the Jays on hold now that the season has started, SB Nation reports.

The team had reportedly offered a two-year deal, but the designated hitter was looking for four or more years. By the end of 2016, Encarnacion's current contract will have paid him $37 million in three years -- a massive steal for the organization, considering he averaged 36 home runs and 104 RBI during that span. The 33-year-old is reportedly looking to get upward of $10 million per year.
