Dyson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds. On the bench for the fourth time in six games, Dyson looks to have slipped into a fourth-outfield role, with Adam Jones seemingly have surpassed him on the depth chart. Dyson will see plenty of usage off the bench as a defensive replacement and pinch-running specialist, but his lack of steady at-bats make him a rather unappealing lineup option outside of deeper mixed and NL-only leagues.
Dyson is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds. Dyson will head to the bench for the third time in the last four games as Adam Jones receives another start in right field. Manager Torey Lovullo has featured a heavy right-field rotation over the last 11 contests, with Jones, Dyson and Abraham Almonte each receiving multiple starts.
Dyson sits for the second game in a row Wednesday against the Mets. Dyson has gone 1-for-20 with eight strikeouts in the month of September. Adam Jones starts in right field Wednesday.
Dyson is not starting Tuesday against the Mets. Dyson has started every other game over the Diamondbacks' last eight contests. Adam Jones gets the start in right field on this occasion.
Dyson was dropped to eighth in the batting order and went 0-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Mets. Dyson stole his 30th base and now has five seasons with at least 30 bags, but his bat continues to sleep. He's 8-for-61 (.131) over the last 24 games. He's typically the Diamondbacks' leadoff hitter against right-handed pitching, but the recent slump prompted manager Torey Lovullo to slot him lower Monday.
