Lance Lynn, a former Chicago White Sox pitcher, has signed a one-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals for the 2024 season. The deal will pay Lynn $10 million, and there is an option for 2025 that could increase the contract to $26 million.
According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Lynn began the 2023 season with the White Sox before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. While playing with the White Sox, he had a 6-9 record and a 6.47 ERA. However, when he was acquired by the Dodgers, he improved his performance, going 7-2 with a 4.36 ERA.
Prior to his time with the White Sox, Lynn spent six successful seasons with the Cardinals, where he won a World Series ring in 2011 and a National League pennant in 2013. His return to the team aligns with his previous successes and provides him with an opportunity to rejoin one of his former teams.
