Yankees should explore deal to add reliever(s) from San Francisco Giants
By Jon Butensky
One of the more recognizable relievers on this list, Sam Dyson has been dynamite for San Francisco in his 29 appearances in 2019. In 31.0 innings pitched, the righty has a 2.61 ERA and a 0.935 WHIP with 30 strikeouts. Additionally, Dyson has allowed 1.16 BB/9 IP (the eight fewest in all of baseball) and his 3.3 BB% is in the Top 2 percentage according to Baseball Savant. Dyson also owns a 57.7% groundball percentage which is 12th best in the Majors.
The 31-year old has experience pitching in the postseason (2015-2016 with the Texas Rangers). Overall, Dyson has appeared in 5 G with a 1.93 ERA across 4.2 innings pitched, having only allowed six hits and one earned run. It’s certainly good to know that the righty isn’t afraid of any moment.
Dyson wouldn’t be a long-term commitment as he is a free agent after this season. The fact that he doesn’t have a multi-year deal attached to him, the righty probably wouldn’t cost much for the Yankees to acquire him in terms of prospects.
