Diamondbacks signed OF Jarrod Dyson to a two-year, $7.5 million contract.
The deal was reported earlier Monday and has now been made official. Dyson is coming off a season in which he batted .251/.324/.350 with five home runs, 30 RBI and 28 steals for the Mariners. The D'Backs might not be done adding outfield help, but for now Dyson seems most likely to form the strong side of a platoon in left field with Yasmany Tomas. Feb 19 - 8:12 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Diamondbacks have signed Jarrod Dyson to a two-year contract.

Crasnick says Dyson has already completed his physical and Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that the contract is worth $7.5 million. It's unclear at this point whether Dyson will play left or center field or if he'll just be an active fourth outfielder. Either way, this isn't good news for Yasmany Tomas. Dyson batted .251/.324/.350 with five home runs, 30 RBI and 28 steals for the Mariners last season.

Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports that the Orioles are interested in Jarrod Dyson.

Kubatko writes of Dyson that the Orioles have "checked his medicals and he’s still in the picture." Baltimore is looking for a left-handed bat to at least platoon in right field and ideally that player would also back up center fielder Adam Jones. Dyson certainly appears as if he'd fit the bill, although it sounds like the O's are considering a handful of others, as well. The Giants are also known to have strong interest in Dyson.

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the Giants have Jarrod Dyson as their top non-Lorenzo Cain free agent option for center field.

Dyson is followed by Jon Jay and Cameron Maybin on the Giants' list. The club acquired Andrew McCutchen from the Pirates on Monday and haven't officially ruled him out for center field, but the speedy Dyson is obviously the superior defender. The 33-year-old batted .251/.324/.350 with five home runs, 30 RBI, and 28 steals over 11 games with the Mariners last season.

Jarrod Dyson will have season-ending sports hernia surgery.

Dyson was initially hurt back in mid-August and then aggravated the injury shortly after returning this month. Guillermo Heredia is slated for everyday at-bats in center field the rest of the way with Dyson on the shelf. Slated for free agency this winter, Dyson batted .251/.324/.350 with 28 stolen bases this season for the Mariners.

Jarrod Dyson is still feeling discomfort in his right groin.

Dyson hasn't played since re-aggravating the injury on September 2, a day after returning from the disabled list. It's possible the 33-year-old outfielder is done for the season. He is scheduled to become a free agent this winter.

Jarrod Dyson (groin) is out of the Mariners' lineup again on Tuesday night against the Astros.

Guillermo Heredia will start in center field and bat ninth versus right-hander Justin Verlander, who is making his Astros debut. Dyson has been bothered by groin discomfort since mid-August and there is some worry that he might have a sports hernia.

The Mariners think Jarrod Dyson might be dealing with a sports hernia injury.

Dyson returned from the disabled list last Friday from what had been called a strained right groin, but he aggravated the ailment Saturday. The Mariners still think he'll be ready to play soon, but they also suspect he won't be 100 percent for the rest of the season. It's bad news for a guy whose fantasy value rest almost solely on his legs.

Jarrod Dyson isn't in Sunday's lineup and won't play Monday, either, after re-injuring his right groin Saturday.

Dyson was just activated on Friday. It doesn't sound like a big setback, as the hope is that he'll feel well enough to play by Tuesday. Guillermo Heredia is in center field Sunday.

Mariners activated OF Jarrod Dyson from the 10-day disabled list.

Dyson missed a couple weeks with a strained groin but is ready to go now. He's in center field and batting ninth Friday.

Jarrod Dyson (groin) is likely to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Dyson took another round of batting practice on Wednesday and he's been running the bases all week. The speedy center fielder landed on the disabled list August 19, retroactive to August 17, with a right groin strain.

Jarrod Dyson (groin) took early batting practice and ran the bases on Monday.

If he returns to the ballpark Tuesday without any abnormal discomfort, the Mariners will likely activate Dyson off the disabled list. He's been out for the last 11 days with a right groin strain.

Jarrod Dyson (groin) will not be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Sunday as initially hoped.

Dyson has resumed running and feels good, but he needs a little more time. He'll test out his right groin strain again Monday.
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 11:41:00 AM

Jarrod Dyson (groin) did some running Friday.

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Friday that he's unsure whether Dyson will be ready for activation when first eligible on Sunday. Still, the fact that it even seems to be a possibility is a good sign.
Fri, Aug 25, 2017 04:05:00 PM

Mariners placed OF Jarrod Dyson on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 17, with a right groin strain.

For a player that derives nearly all of his value with his legs, he can't help the team unless he's 100% in that area, so it was wise to shut him down. Mitch Haniger was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
