Rangers' Sam Dyson: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Dyson agreed to a one-year, $3.52 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Dyson took over the closer job from Shawn Tolleson in mid-May, finishing 38-for-42 in save opportunities. However, he wasn't as dominant as he was in 2015, with his strikeout rate falling to below 20 percent and his walk rate ticking up to over eight percent. He should remain in the ninth-inning role to begin 2017, but the Rangers could turn to Matt Bush or Jeremy Jeffress should Dyson slip up.

Rangers' Sam Dyson: Closes door on Angels for 35th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson worked around a hit and struck out one to notch his 35th save of the season Tuesday against the Angels.

Dyson preserved the 5-4 victory with a quick nine-pitch inning. Before breaking out this season, the 28-year-old had combined for four career saves and five blown saves. He's now 35-for-40 in save chances this year while also notching a nifty 10 games in the process.

Rangers' Sam Dyson: Picks up 32nd save against Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson gave up a hit but still pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up the save Tuesday against Seattle.

For much of the year, Dyson wasn't striking out many batters, but he now has 11 in his past seven outings, including four multiple strikeout appearances in that span. He picked up one strikeout to prevent a rally from getting started Tuesday and has now recorded saves in five consecutive appearances.

Rangers' Sam Dyson: Silences heart of Houston's order for save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson pitched a scoreless ninth inning without allowing a hit and struck out a batter to earn the save in Friday's win over the Astros.

Dyson retired the middle of the Astros' lineup (Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and Evan Gattis) to pick up his 31st save this year. Interestingly, the 28-year-old hasn't allowed a run in his last four appearances despite inducing far less ground balls than he did during the his eight previous appearances in August in which he gave up five runs on twelve hits and blew two save opportunities.

Rangers' Sam Dyson: Notches 30th save
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Dyson picked up his 30th save with a scoreless ninth in Monday's win over the Mariners.

Since July, Dyson is a solid 14-for-16 in save opportunities with a 2.61 ERA despite a horrible 1.50 WHIP and a mediocre 16:9 K:BB. His relative inability to miss bats compared to the typical modern closer means he's likely to make things interesting on a regular basis down the stretch. Dyson is one of the league's most extreme groundballers, though, with a 62.8-percent groundball rate, and he's tough to handle when his sinker is working.
