Giants' Sam Dyson: Can't convert save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson entered in the ninth inning in a save situation Wednesday, but allowed two runs on four hits while recording just two outs and settling for a hold against the Marlins.

In his first save opportunity since being named the primary closer in Hunter Strickland's (hand) absence, Dyson struggled mightily. He allowed three singles and a double, and left with the go-ahead run on first base before Reyes Moronta locked down the save. With Strickland expected to miss at least six weeks, it's unlikely Dyson's leash would be short enough that he'd be in jeopardy of losing the closer job due to just one bad outing, but former closer Tony Watson is waiting in the wings should he continue to struggle.

Giants' Sam Dyson: Named San Francisco's closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said after Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Marlins that Dyson would serve as the team's primary closer following Hunter Strickland's (hand) placement on the 10-day disabled list, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Bochy's pronouncement came after Dyson picked up his second save of the season in Tuesday's contest after entering with one out and a runner on in the top of the ninth and recording an inning-ending double play. Prior to the game, Bochy had revealed that he had two pitchers in mind to fill in for Strickland as closer, with one of the two receiving "the lion's share" of the save chances, according to Martin Oppegaard of MLB.com. It's now been established that Dyson will be the Giants' go-to man in the ninth inning, with Bochy also identifying Tony Watson as a left-handed option that could see occasional save chances. After a disastrous 2017 campaign that saw him lose out on the closer's role in Texas before being dealt to San Francisco, Dyson has bounced back well with a 2.45 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 33 innings, but a 7.1 K/9 and .221 BABIP hint that regression could be coming for the right-hander. If Dyson does endure some turbulence at the back end of the bullpen, Watson, who boasts similar splits against both right- and left-handed hitters this season, would likely get the next shot at collecting the bulk of the saves while Strickland is sidelined for the next 6-to-8 weeks.

Giants' Sam Dyson: Earns save Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson pitched a perfect two-thirds of an inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Marlins.

Dyson came into the game with one on and one out in the ninth and induced a game-ending double-play ball on his second pitch, notching his second save of the year. Dyson now sports a 2.45 ERA and 0.97 WHIP while holding opponents to a .193 batting average. The 30-year-old figures to share the closer's role with lefty Tony Watson while everyday closer Hunter Strickland recovers from a broken hand. When Dyson filled in as closer last year for the Giants he was 14-for-17 in save opportunities.

Giants' Sam Dyson: Could step in as closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson could act as the Giants' closer while Hunter Strickland (hand) is sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Manager Bruce Bochy announced Tuesday that Dyson and fellow reliever Tony Watson are the likely candidates to step into the closer role after Hunter Strickland broke his right hand Monday after punching a wall in the clubhouse following a blown save. Dyson currently owns a 2.51 ERA with a 26:10 K:BB over 32.1 innings of relief this season. He also recorded a combined 52 saves during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Giants' Sam Dyson: Records first save in extra innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson retired the only batter he faced to record the save Thursday during the Giants' 16-inning win over the Marlins.

Hunter Strickland and some poor defense behind him blew the save chance in the ninth that started the extra-innings marathon, but Dyson came in after Ty Blach chewed up 6.2 frames and induced a flyout by Bryan Holaday to notch his first closure of 2018. He's resided on the periphery of San Francisco's saves picture, which has been controlled by Strickland since the start of the year, and probably ranks third at best on the hierarchy now that Mark Melancon has looked healthy and effective.
