Jarrod Dyson went 2-for-2 and swiped his 10th base of the season as the Mariners fell to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Dyson plated a run, scored a run and also walked twice, reaching base safely in all four of his plate appearances. He has really struggled at the plate through the first month and a half of the season, slashing .219/.316/.281 with no homers and nine RBI.

Jarrod Dyson went 2-for-5 and stole his fifth base of the season against the Athletics on Saturday.

Both hits were singles. In fact he has 15 hits on the season with 12 singles and three doubles. The 32-year-old has just seven home runs in his career. However it was stolen bases his fantasy owners were after when they drafted Dyson. He stole 30 bags last year in just 107 games and has a strong chance of doing that again this year.
Apr 22 - 8:55 PM

Jarrod Dyson is batting leadoff for the Mariners on Tuesday night against the Astros.

Dyson has a .160 batting average and .250 on-base percentage in 28 plate appearances this season, but he could be Seattle's regular leadoff man while Jean Segura is on the disabled list with a hamstring strain. Taylor Motter is starting at shortstop Tuesday versus Houston.
Apr 11 - 6:13 PM

Jarrod Dyson is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

Dyson is off to a 3-for-22 start and is just getting a breather. Taylor Motter is in left field. The M's also have Carlos Ruiz catching over Mike Zunino.
Apr 9 - 12:24 PM

Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) has returned to the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.

Dyson rested his hamstring for a week, but he saw a bunch of at-bats in a minor league game on Monday and feels ready to go. The speedster should be fine for the season.
Mar 29 - 10:54 AM

Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) is hoping to return to Cactus League action on Wednesday.

Dyson has dealt with a right hamstring issue for over a week, although the Mariners have insisted that it's merely fatigue and not any kind of strain. The speedster said he had six hits -- including a home run -- in 10 at-bats in a minor league game Monday. There's been no indication that Dyson is in danger of missing Opening Day.
Mar 27 - 6:21 PM

Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) is expected to take 10 plate appearances in minor league games Monday.

But his running will be limited as he works his way back from a hamstring injury. Dyson's game relies heavily on his legs, so the Mariners have to be careful here. His status is very much up in the air with the regular season approaching.
Mar 27 - 11:18 AM

Jarrod Dyson remains out of game action due to a sore hamstring.

He's been dealing with fatigue in his legs for a week now, although the Mariners think he'll be ready to play by Sunday. It doesn't sound like a big deal but is obviously worth tracking given how much of Dyson's value is derived from his legs. For what it's worth, the speedster is 5-for-5 on stolen base attempts this spring.
Mar 24 - 2:02 PM

Jarrod Dyson did not play over the weekend, and is likely to miss a few more days, due to leg fatigue.

It doesn't sound like something serious enough to require Dyson to miss the start of the regular season, but it's something worth monitoring. The speedy outfielder is hitting .343/.415/.486 with three RBI and is 5-for-5 in stolen base attempts in Cactus League action.

Jarrod Dyson went berserk with three hits and two steals Wednesday in the Mariners’ Cactus League loss to the Dodgers.

Dyson ripped three singles while raising his Cactus League average from .276 to .344. His steals, both off Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy, were his fourth and fifth of the spring. After years of being buried behind All-Star center fielder Lorenzo Cain in Kansas City, Dyson has finally secured a starting role in Seattle. He’s not going to hit for power or a high average, but Dyson offers mouth-watering steal potential and should score a boatload of runs as the leadoff man for a stacked Mariners lineup.
Mar 15 - 7:57 PM

Jarrod Dyson went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored in Saturday's Cactus League date with the Reds.

Dyson was leading off Saturday's contest, something that manager Scott Servais has said the team will be trying out this season. He is hitting .308 in the very early going of spring ball. The speedy outfielder swiped 30 bases with the Royals this past season.
Mar 11 - 8:03 PM

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Thursday that he's planning to try Jarrod Dyson at leadoff this spring.

Jean Segura would bat second for Seattle if the experiment works out. Dyson carries a weak .325 career on-base percentage at the major league level, but that number spiked to .340 in 2016 and he remains one of the fastest runners in the sport at age 32. Dyson would obviously carry serious fantasy value if he's able to grab that leadoff gig and hold onto it. He tallied 30 stolen bases in 107 games (83 starts) last summer with Kansas City.
Jan 26 - 2:47 PM

Mariners and OF Jarrod Dyson avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.8 million contract.

Acquired from the Royals a week ago, Dyson was eligible for arbitration for the final time. The speedster will start in left field against righties for the Mariners this season.
Jan 13 - 3:35 PM

Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that the Mariners have acquired Jarrod Dyson from the Royals in exchange for Nate Karns.

Dyson has been involved in trade rumors for most of the offseason, and the Royals finally found a return that they deemed acceptable. He will probably start in one of the corner outfield spots for Seattle with Leonys Martin already in center and gives the Mariners an excellent defensive outfield with Mitch Haniger added in. Dyson will probably bat at the bottom of the order but is still a great bet for stolen bases.
