Lance Lynn, a former Chicago White Sox pitcher, has recently signed a one-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals. The deal is worth $10 million for the 2024 season and includes an option for 2025 that could increase the contract to $26 million. The news was reported by Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
Lynn started the 2023 season with the White Sox but was later traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. While with the White Sox, Lynn had a record of 6-9 and an ERA of 6.47. However, when he joined the Dodgers, his performance improved, and he went on to have a record of 7-2 with an ERA of 4.36.
Before joining the White Sox, Lynn spent six seasons with the Cardinals where he had great success with the team. In 2011, he won a World Series ring with them and in 2013 they reached the National League pennant. Lynn’s return to St. Louis aligns well with his past achievements on the mound for the Cardinals.
