MLB news: Giants acquire Dyson
The San Francisco Giants have acquired RHP Sam Dyson and cash considerations from the Texas Rangers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
After DFA'ing Dyson, GM Jon Daniels looked for some value out of him. So, getting just a potential no-named prospect or cash seems like a win. I also predicted some places Dyson could've ended up with, but the Giants weren't one.
Dyson, 29, has allowed 20 earned runs in 16.2 innings (10.80 ERA) this year with just seven strikeouts. He has a career ERA of 3.54 with 172 strikeouts and 40 saves in 216 innings for the Rangers, Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jays.
In other Rangers news, they signed RHP Ernesto Frieri to a minor league deal. Frieri, 31, has a career ERA of 3.55 with 382 strikeouts and 73 saves in 296.1 innings for the San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Angels, Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays.
