Several MLB players will receive some extra money this holiday season. Chicago White Sox ace Dylan Cease is among the group, as ESPN's Jesse Rogers reports the righty will collect $2,457,426 from MLB's first-ever pre-arbitration bonus pool.

Cease finished second in 2022 AL Cy Young voting, which will net him $1.75 million. The remaining $707,426 will come from finishing in the top 100 in WAR (the joint MLB/MLBPA-created version). Rogers notes the bonuses are paid by the team but reimbursed by the league, which should make White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf happy.

This payday should at least help make up for some of the snubs Dylan Cease endured in 2022.
