The Chicago White Sox came out of last night's 7-1 loss to the Houston Astro’s by giving fans an exciting surprise before tonight’s game. The team extended Lance Lynn to a two-year 38 million dollar deal with a club option in 2024. Lynn is set to be a free agent is now a key piece in this young White Sox rotation. Lynn in his first season with the White Sox has pitched to a 9-3 record and a 1.99 ERA.
Lynn is a pitcher with experience in good consistent pitching, and he has continued to do that with Chicago. I think that trade back in the off-season with Texas for Lynn was the best move by Rick Hahn before the season. Lynn is a key veteran mentor to Sox starters like Lucas Giolito and Dylan Cease. The Indiana native is now staying with his former Cardinals manager in Tony La Russa.
When it comes to striving for a solid, dependable rotation extending Lynn is huge for the Southsiders. Lynn slides in with Giolito, Cease, Keuchel, and Kopech next year. I think Lance Lynn is a great pitcher Sox fans can back each start. The White Sox are shooting for continued success in October this next decade, and Lynn signed the extension with excitement in being a part of it. Lynn showed White Sox fans his fit here with a complete-game win back the April home opener against Kansas City. Congratulations to a pitcher in Lance Lynn getting a well-deserved contract extension. Chicago White Sox fans and GM Rick Hahn can rest well tonight knowing Lynn is in Chicago the next few seasons.
