RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Dyson harnessed his sinker in a big way during 2014, his most consistent season as a professional. He began the season notching a 2.49 ERA over 25.1 innings at Triple-A New Orleans before getting a midsummer call to the big leagues. Following his promotion, Dyson reeled off 42 strong innings in the Marlins' bullpen, inducing groundballs at a 63.3% clip while posting a 2.14 ERA in 31 games. Dyson's arsenal is far from overwhelming as he allowed 41 hits and 15 walks against 33 strikeouts during his time in the majors, but worked his hard, mid-90s sinking fastball to an excellent 3.82 GB/FB ratio. Turning 27 in May, Dyson is set to function as an important multi-inning piece in the middle of the Miami bullpen.

2014

Despite a solid season in the minors that included a 2.67 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across three levels, Dyson -- a roster casualty in Toronto after the 2012 campaign -- was largely ineffective during a brief stint with the Marlins in September. He allowed 11 earned runs in 11 innings, with five walks against five strikeouts. Control is a key factor for Dyson, who has struck out just 100 batters in 185.1 minor league innings and offers a hard sinking fastball that has led to consistently strong groundball rates in the minors. Dyson has spent most of his time in the Marlins' system as a starter, but could also be a consideration to contribute in relief at some point in 2014.
