Dayton (2-0) allowed one hit while striking out two batters in 1.2 innings of scoreless work Wednesday as he earned the win over the Marlins.
Dayton entered with one out in the fourth for the struggling Tommy Milone and was unable to strand the two runners Milone allowed on base before exiting the game. He then came back out for the fifth and retired the side to finish up his day. Dayton owns a 2.25 ERA and an impressive 22:4 K:BB across 20 innings this season.

Dayton was called on in the eighth inning Friday with Atlanta trailing by four runs, but he was able to pick up his second win over the past four seasons after the Braves plated five runs in the bottom of the frame. The 32-year-old likely won't be utilized in many high-leverage situations this year despite his rare win against the Mets.
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.
Dayton agreed to a one-year, $655,000 deal with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
This is his first of three years as an arbitration-eligible player. He should once again work in the middle innings for Atlanta in 2020.

He owns a stellar 29.1 strikeout percentage over 50 career innings in the majors.
Dayton (elbow) is back to full health, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Dayton will enter spring training with a clean bill of health after missing the entire 2018 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The 31-year-old impressed as a rookie with the Dodgers in 2016, notching a 2.05 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 39:6 K:BB across 26.1 innings of relief, though it remains to be seen if he'll regain his effectiveness following such an extended layoff. Dayton should compete for a bullpen role in camp.
Dayton (elbow) was put on the 60-day DL on Wednesday.

Dayton was claimed off waivers by the Braves on Monday.
Before being claimed by Atlanta on Monday, Dayton had been a member of the Dodgers. With a 4.94 ERA and 1.31 WHIP that was built over 29 games (23.2 innings), Dayton had a down year in 2017. Despite last year's struggles, he's shown he has some upside out of the bullpen, as he logged an ERA and WHIP of 2.05 and 0.76, respectively, during the 2016 season. However, Dayton recently underwent Tommy John surgery and is slated to miss the entire 2018 season.

Dayton had his Tommy John surgery performed Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.
Dayton is expected to require at least 12 months to heal from the procedure, so it's highly unlikely that he'll factor into the Dodgers' bullpen mix at any point in 2018. After a strong finish to the 2016 season, Dayton looked like he could be the top setup option for closer Kenley Jansen entering the current campaign, but health issues and ineffectiveness prior to the season-ending elbow procedure prevented that from materializing. He'll wrap up the season with a 4.94 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 23.2 innings.
Dayton will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday to repair his elbow, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
