Jarrod Dyson went 3-for-3 with three stolen bases against the Giants on Sunday.

Dyson hit his second double of the year among his three hits. The outfielder also stole three bases on the afternoon, giving him 26 steals on the season. Dyson is hitting a productive .286/.337/.344 in a part-time role, and he's certainly worth owning in AL-only leagues.
Aug 10 - 7:30 PM

Jarrod Dyson finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Tigers.

Getting his fifth straight start, Dyson drove in a run with a groundout in the Royals' five-run seventh inning. He also had two singles and stole his 18th base of the year. The speedy outfielder is batting .293/.348/.340 heading into the break, and he'll continue to see plenty of playing time as the Royals' fourth outfielder going forward.
Jul 13 - 6:34 PM

Jarrod Dyson went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Angels.

Dyson had a single and stole his seventh base in the third inning, coming around to score on an Alex Gordon single. On the down side, Dyson was caught stealing after a walk in the first inning. It was a rare start for the outfielder, who is usually employed as a pinch runner for his base-stealing abilities.
May 25 - 7:29 PM

Jarrod Dyson went 1-for-4 with a two-run triple in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

Justin Verlander blanked the Royals for 6 1/3 innings before Dyson's first triple of the season plated two. The outfielder, getting regular playing time in Lorenzo Cain's absence, has batted .289/.304/.333 this season. With Cain close to a return, Dyson will likely return to a part-time role soon.
May 4 - 6:40 PM

Royals activated OF Jarrod Dyson from the bereavement list.

Dyson has been away from the club since late Thursday. The speedy outfielder should see plenty of playing time while Lorenzo Cain (groin) is on the disabled list, so he's worth using in deeper mixed leagues in the short-term.
Apr 21 - 4:28 PM

Royals placed OF Jarrod Dyson on the bereavement list.

Dyson is permitted to be away from the club for 3-7 games. It's bad timing, given that he was in line for more playing time with Lorenzo Cain (groin) out. Justin Maxwell figures to handle center field for the Royals for now. They'll make a corresponding move prior to Friday's game.
Apr 17 - 11:42 PM

Jarrod Dyson went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Tigers.

The 29-year-old outfielder has gotten a chance at some extended playing time while Lorenzo Cain was sidelined, but hasn't quite been able to capitalize on it. For the season, the speedster is hitting .263/.319/.366 with two homers, 15 RBI and 29 stolen bases. His fantasy value is tied exclusively to his wheels, and if he isn't playing on a semi-regular basis, he's virtually useless.

Jarrod Dyson went 2-for-4 with a walk, two stolen bases and a run scored in Sunday's 4-2 win over the White Sox.

Because the Royals have settled on Alex Gordon, Lorenzo Cain, and David Lough as their starting outfield, Dyson's at-bats have been sporadic recently. That's bad news for fantasy owners, because the blazing 28-year-old has swiped 16 bases using just 87 at-bats. He's been superb in limited run, batting .276/.344/.460. Keep in mind that Dyson's .804 OPS is well above his career mark of .668 and assuredly will fall.

Jarrod Dyson went 3-for-3 with a go-ahead RBI single, a walk and two stolen bases in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Athletics.

Dyson's slow chopper up in the middle in the bottom of the eighth inning proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Royals manager Ned Yost plans to use a rotation in center field and right moving forward, so Dyson is best utilized in daily fantasy leagues, but his speed makes him relevant in deeper mixed formats. The speedy 28-year-old has 12 stolen bases in just 29 games played this year.

Royals activated OF Jarrod Dyson from the 15-day disabled list.

Dyson has been out since mid-May with a right ankle sprain. He was batting .268 in 18 games prior to the injury and should continue to see semi-regular starts in center field.
Sat, Jun 22, 2013 11:07:00 AM

Jarrod Dyson (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

The Royals are targeting 25-30 at-bats for the outfielder before activating him, so he should be in line for a return early next week. Dyson has been out since mid-May with a right ankle sprain.
Thu, Jun 6, 2013 07:27:00 PM

Jarrod Dyson (ankle) was cleared to do some jogging prior to Tuesday's game.

"I still feel a little pain there," he said, "but it’s just a process I’ve got to go through. I went 90 feet four times. They were just trying to get a gauge if the pain stayed with me after I stopped. It’s going away when I stop." Dyson said more should be known about his timetable early next week.
Tue, May 28, 2013 07:13:00 PM

Royals manager Ned Yost said Jarrod Dyson (ankle) is likely "at least three weeks" away from returning.

Dyson is dealing with a high right ankle sprain. He had been receiving more starts before the injury and again could threaten Jeff Francoeur for playing time once healthy.
Fri, May 24, 2013 09:12:00 AM

Jarrod Dyson has been diagnosed with a mild high ankle sprain and is expected to be sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks.

The 28-year-old speedster had been off to a decent start this season, hitting .268/.286/.561 with a homer, eight RBI and six stolen bases through his first 41 at-bats. While the timetable for recovery is short, any injury to the ankle is something to very closely monitor for a player such as Dyson who derives all of his fantasy value from his speed. David Lough could be worth a look in very deep leagues while Dyson is out.
