The 36-year-old pitcher with a 5.73 ERA just got an $11 million guaranteed contract. This is also good news for the ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin, 36.
The St. Louis Cardinals and Lance Lynn (36) have agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract, according to ESPN, an American sports channel.
He has an $11 million club option for the 2025 season. The buyout is $1 million. It also includes $3 million in performance-based incentives.레모나토토
The deal is worth a maximum of two years and $24 million, with a minimum of one year and $11 million. A very nice contract given how Lynn has looked this season.
Lynn pitched 183 2/3 innings in 32 games for the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers this season, going 13-11 with a 5.73 ERA.
After posting a 6.47 ERA with the Chicago White Sox, he was traded to the LA Dodgers, where he was slightly better at 4.36.
Lynn made a big splash with a 1.44 ERA in his first four starts with the Dodgers, but then collapsed to a 10.80 ERA in his next three starts.
St. Louis is Lin’s hometown team. After being drafted in the first round in 2008, he spent the 2011 and 2017 seasons there.
In those six seasons, Lin pitched 977 2/3 innings in 183 games (161 starts), going 72-47 with a 3.38 ERA.
Ryu’s signing would also be good news for Ryu, as mentioned earlier. With starting pitching at a premium, it’s not out of the question that Ryu could get a good offer.
