Dyson, 31, turned his career around when he joined the Giants in 2017. Dyson wasn’t the best available bullpen arm at this year’s deadline, but he’s still going to be an improvement for the Twins’ bullpen. The right-hander, who’s on a $5 million salary, also has team control through the 2020 season.
In 49 games (51 innings pitched), Dyson has posted a 2.47 ERA and a 2.74 FIP with a 55 percent groundball rate and 6.71 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
The minor leaguers included in the prospect package are not ranked in the Twins’ top 30 prospect list, according to MLB Pipeline.
Entering Wednesday, Minneosta (65-41) is in sole possession of first place in American League Central, but the Indians have managed to cut their lead down to just three games.
