Last year Sam Dyson saved 38 games for the Rangers while posting a 2.43 ERA across 70.1 innings. So far this year he has posted a 10.80 ERA while walking 12, striking out only 7 and allowing six homers in a mere 16.2 innings. Now he’s about to be dumped by his club:
The Rangers have several days to trade or release Dyson, and they will reportedly try to find a trading partner. It’s not crazy to think that someone will bite given how recently Dyson was effective. Relievers certainly have their ups and downs. Any interested clubs will certainly scrutinize his medicals closely, though, given how quickly and unexpectedly he has cratered.
Dyson makes $3.52 million this year, about $2.4 million of which is still owed.
