The Chicago White Sox have signed starting pitcher Lance Lynn to a two-year, $38 million contract extension, retaining one of the projected top MLB free agents this winter.

Lynn, acquired this offseason in a blockbuster trade, was set to hit the open market following the 2021 season. The 34-year-old will help anchor Chicago’s rotation at least through the 2023 season and profiles as one of its best starters.

The White Sox announced the official signing on Twitter, detailing the $38 million extension that includes a club option for the 2024 season.
