Chicago White Sox, Lance Lynn agree to 2-year, $38M extension

For Lance Lynn, it was pretty simple.

“There’s no point in going into free agency if you know where you want to be,” he said.

Lynn is enjoying his first season on the South Side of Chicago, and the White Sox feel the same way. So they solidified their relationship Saturday, announcing a two-year, $38 million contract extension for the All-Star right-hander.

The 34-year-old Lynn is 9-3 with an American League-best 1.99 ERA in 16 starts. He was acquired in a December trade with the Texas Rangers for right-hander Dane Dunning and lefty Avery Weems.

With Lynn helping anchor the rotation, the White Sox had an eight-game lead in the American League Central heading into Saturday’s game against the Houston Astros.

“They’ve put together a winner here,” Lynn said. “That’s what I want to be part of and help to kind of push it over the top to get a championship.”

Lynn will make $18.5 million in each of the next two seasons. The White Sox have an $18 million option for 2024 with a $1 million buyout.
