Rangers trade struggling reliever Sam Dyson to Giants

Rangers trade struggling reliever Sam Dyson to Giants

In 70 1/3 innings, Dyson saved 38 games and posted a 2.43 ERA with 7.0 K/9 and 2.0 BB/9.

The Rangers on Tuesday traded former closer Sam Dyson along with cash considerations to the Giants in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named later.

No indication yet as to who the player to be named later might be, though it wouldn't be unreasonable to guess that the Rangers and Giants have agreed on a list of players from which the Rangers will get to select.




The San Francisco Giants could become sellers by Major League Baseball's trade deadline, but on Tuesday evening, the franchise entered the market as buyers. It's not yet known exactly how much of Dyson's $3.52MM salary the Rangers are including in the deal, though Dyson is still owed about $2.27MM of that figure.

The 29-year-old has compiled a record of 1-6 over 17 relief appearances for Texas this season, he's also collected 20 earned runs in that span of 16.2 innings. He will have a chance to hit the reset button on his career by joining an equally struggling Giants' bullpen. Dyson appeared in five games for Team USA, pitching six innings of hitless ball and striking out four hitters. But he lost the closer role in Texas a month into the season.
