It's going to cost the Colorado Rockies a pretty penny if they want to retain right-hander Jon Gray.

Gray, a pending free agent, is likely seeking a three- or four-year deal at $9-10 million per season, reports The Denver Post's Patrick Saunders.

The 29-year-old rejected a contract offer by the Rockies before the 2021 campaign ended, according to Saunders. Details of the deal weren't provided.

Despite rejecting the offer, Gray reportedly still has a desire to return to Colorado.

The Oklahoma native has been a fairly reliable starter for the Rockies considering he pitches in the league's friendliest park for hitters. He owns a 53-49 record with a 4.59 ERA and 3.91 FIP across 829 1/3 innings in seven seasons.

Colorado recently inked fellow starter Antonio Senzatela to a five-year, $50.5-million extension.
