Lance Lynn, a former Chicago White Sox pitcher, has signed a one-year deal with the St. Louis Cardinals. The agreement will pay Lynn $10 million for the 2024 season, with an option for 2025 that could increase the contract to $26 million. This 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. With the White Sox, he had a 6-9 record and a 6.47 ERA, but with the Dodgers, he went 7-2 with a 4.36 ERA. Prior to his time with the White Sox, Lynn spent the first six seasons of his career with the Cardinals. He won a World Series ring with the team in 2011 and a National League pennant in 2013. Lynn’s return to the Cardinals aligns with his previous success with the team.
