Dayton gave up two runs on three hits and a walk over one inning of relief in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.
The lefty threw only 15 of his 30 pitches for strikes after entering the game to begin the fifth inning, digging the hole a little deeper for Atlanta after they were already down 3-0. Dayton has been tagged for multiple runs in two of his five appearances to begin the season, saddling him with a 7.94 ERA through 5.2 innings, and he's unlikely to see high-leverage work any time soon.
Dayton appears set to make Atlanta's Opening Day roster, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
The team's decision to carry 10 relievers helped Dayton's case, as did the fact that he's out of minor-league options. Still, he'll be shut out of high-leverage work in a 'pen that already features Will Smith, A.J. Minter and Tyler Matzek from the port side, and Dayton's efforts in Grapefruit League play (6.43 ERA, 7:4 K:BB and three homers allowed in seven innings) were far from impressive. The 33-year-old lefty could be the reliever cut loose when the team elects to lengthen its bench later in the year.

Dayton posted an ugly 11.12 ERA, 2.29 WHIP and 3:3 K:BB through 5.2 innings before spring training was suspended.
The left-hander coughed up 10 hits in Grapefruit League action, two of which left the yard. Dayton was expected to fill a low-leverage role in the Atlanta bullpen, but the delayed start to the regular season and the potential for a compacted schedule when MLB resumes -- not to mention his shaky spring performance -- could cost him a spot on the 26-man roster if the team decides it needs more length to support the rotation.
