Lynn and Cardinals agree to $22 million, 3-year contract

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Pitcher Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to a $22 million, three-year contract.

Lynn gets $7 million this year and $7.5 million in each of the following two seasons.

He can make $500,000 in performance bonuses based on starts in 2016 and $1 million in 2017: $125,000 each for 25, 27, 29 and 31 in 2016 and $250,000 for each of those levels the following year.

Lynn made $535,000 last season, when he was 15-10 with a 2.74 ERA in 33 starts.

The agreement was reached Thursday, two days after Lynn filed for arbitration.
