Dyson started in right field and went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two stolen bases in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Twins. Nomar Mazara has started in right field against right-handers, but he was given the night off in favor of Dyson. Mazara is hitless over his last 11 at-bats and has a weak .555 OPS in 33 games. This may not be a permanent roster change, but Dyson could get more playing time as the White Sox prepare for the postseason.
Dyson started in center field and went 1-for-2 in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Tigers. This was Dyson's first start since being acquired by the White Sox on Aug. 28. Prior to Sunday, he's appeared in six games as a pinch runner or defensive replacement. Dyson was in the lineup to spell Luis Robert, who is 5-for-37 with 14 strikeouts over the last 10 games.
The Pirates traded Dyson to the White Sox on Friday in exchange for international slot money, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. With the Pirates out of contention, they are looking to get anything they can for veteran pieces like Dyson. This move probably takes a bite out Dyson's playing time, as he should essentially replace Adam Engel as Chicago's fourth outfielder and top defensive and base running replacement. Over his last 10 games, Dyson is hitting .250 with zero extra-base hits and two steals in 24 at-bats.
Dyson is not starting Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. Cole Tucker is once again covering center field in place of Dyson, who is absent from the lineup for a third straight game despite righty Johan Oviedo starting for the Cardinals.
Dyson is not starting Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. Dyson will stick on the bench for a second straight game as the Pirates face another left-hander in Kwang-Hyun Kim. Cole Tucker gets another start in center field in his place.
