The Chicago White Sox announced on Saturday afternoon that they have agreed to terms on contract extension with right-handed starting pitcher Lance Lynn.
The extension is for two years, $38 million and includes a club option for the 2024 season.
Lynn, 34, came to the White Sox in an offseason trade that sent Dane Dunning to the Texas Rangers ahead of the 2021 season. The big righty has been fan favorite for not only his pitching performance, but also for his antics that go along with being a fierce competitor.
Lynn’s 9-3 record over 16 starts in 2021 comes with an ERA of just 1.99 and 105 strikeouts. The veteran hurler has thrown 90.2 innings thus far and could exceed the 200 mark during the second half of the season.
