Rougned Odor did not appreciate an inside pitch on Saturday.

Odor was facing Nathan Eovaldi in the bottom of the first inning of Saturday’s New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox game. Eovaldi went inside with a 0-2 pitch that grazed Odor’s jersey. Odor stared down the Red Sox starter afterward:

If looks could kill, Eovaldi would have been dead on the mound.

Coincidentally, the next batter was Gary Sanchez, who also was hit on a 0-2 pitch.

The tough-guy display from Odor really shouldn’t be a surprise considering his history.
