Jarrod Dyson hit his fourth homer Friday against the Rangers.
Dyson never had more than two homers in a season prior to this year. He's gone from homering once every 195 at-bats in his first seven seasons to once every 50 at-bats this year. Unfortunately, he's not hitting for average like he typically does. Still, as long as he's playing regularly, he's not a bad option in mixed leagues for those needing steals. Jun 17 - 12:46 AM

Jarrod Dyson finished 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

The speedster has steals in back-to-back games for the first time since May 16-18 when he swiped three bags in a two-game span. He is slashing just .235/.327/.328, and his biggest contribution to fantasy owners comes in the stolen bases department.

Jarrod Dyson went 1-for-4 with a triple in Thursday's loss to the Twins.

Dyson tripled off Kyle Gibson in the fifth inning and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Ben Gamel. The three-bagger was his second of the season. While the speedster has 14 steals and is well on his way to posting his fifth career campaign of at least 30 thefts, he offers considerably less with the bat and is hitting just .227/.334/.334 in 57 games.
Jun 9 - 1:05 AM

Jarrod Dyson went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Dyson hit a two-run double in the sixth inning to boost the Mariners to a 6-0 lead. The veteran outfielder has picked up hits in seven of his last 10 games, but is slashing an uninspiring .231/.327/.320 in 169 at-bats. He does have 14 steals to his fair name, just about the only thing that can consistently be counted on in his game.
Jun 4 - 7:56 PM

Jarrod Dyson notched two hits Saturday in the Mariners’ 6-0 loss to the Red Sox.

He provided two of the Mariners’ five hits and also added his AL-leading 14th stolen base. Dyson only saw seven pitches in his three at-bats, so he obviously came out ready to swing. The 32-year-old has always been a one-trick pony, providing elite speed and little else. He had just one hit in his previous 14 at-bats prior to Saturday’s outburst.
May 27 - 6:56 PM

Jarrod Dyson hit his first home run of the season Sunday in the Mariners' loss to the Blue Jays.

His solo shot in the top of the seventh tied the game at 2-2, but Kevin Pillar hit a walkoff blast for the Blue Jays in the bottom of the ninth. Dyson is batting just .220/.314/.305 this season, though he does have 10 steals and 19 runs scored in 36 games. And he now also has one big fly.
May 14 - 4:43 PM

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.
May 13 - 4:40 PM

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.
