Dyson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two stolen bases and three runs in Thursday's 5-4 win over the White Sox.

The veteran speedster's performance typified what the Mariners were hoping for when they initially attempted to deploy him in the leadoff spot to start the season. Dyson did his damage out of the eight-hole Thursday, however, as a difficult season at the plate has progressively pushed him down the order. The 32-year-old now has both of his homers within the last four games, tying a career high that he'd reached on two other occasions with the Royals. Naturally, Dyson's offensive profile is nowhere near that of a power hitter, so the recent long-ball production should be looked upon as a definite outlier.
