Dyson came in as a pinch runner in the ninth inning against Tampa Bay on Wednesday, stole second base and eventually came around to score to tie the game up at eight apiece.
Dyson replaced Michael Taylor on first base following a leadoff single in the ninth while representing the tying run. After stealing second, he came around thanks to two consecutive successful sacrifices. Dyson has just nine plate appearances to his name this season; he's managed two singles, a triple, two stolen bases and two runs scored thus far.
Dyson went 1-for-1 with a stolen base in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Angels.
Dyson was a defensive replacement in right field for Jorge Soler in the sixth inning. The speedy Dyson got aboard with an infield single in the seventh and stole second base, but he didn't come around to score. The 36-year-old outfielder has made only six plate appearances as a depth outfielder this year. His path to playing time is blocked by Michael Taylor in center field, while Kyle Isbel and Soler figure to see most of the starts in right.
Dyson is back on the bench for Wednesday's game against the Angels after he started in right field in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over Los Angeles.
Filling in for Kyle Isbel, Dyson went 0-for-3 in his first start of the season. Though the 36-year-old still boasts quality speed, the Royals haven't made much use of him off the bench. He appeared in only three of the team's first eight games prior to getting the start Tuesday.
Dyson agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Royals on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
The 36-year-old struggled between the White Sox and Pirates last season, posting a .180/.231/.411 slash line in 66 plate appearances, and he'll return to the organization that drafted him back in 2006. Dyson last played with the Royals in 2016, when he posted a career-high .728 OPS in 107 games. He should open as a reserve outfielder behind Andrew Benintendi, Michael Taylor and Whit Merrifield for Kansas City.
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 in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.
Dyson sits for the third time in the last four games. His previous two days off came against southpaws, but it's potentially significant that he'll be on the bench against righty Randy Dobnak in this one. Cole Tucker gets the nod in center field, something which may continue to happen more regularly going forward given that Dyson has just two hits and a .203 OPS in his first nine games.
Dyson went 0-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Twins.
He's off to a rough start, with two hits in his first 24 at-bats. Dyson, who made an error Tuesday, has stolen just one base. The 35-year-old figures to see his fair share of starts in center field, though Cole Tucker and Guillermo Heredia have become part of the mix.
