Marlins manager Mike Redmond would tell you that Sam Dyson did a nice job Saturday.
Most of Dyson’s work this spring in Jupiter has seemed free and easy, like he has been pitching forever. His ERA is a row of perfect zeros, and he’s only allowed two hits through five innings in the Grapefruit League.
In relief against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Marlins’ January acquisition allowed a single to left field and quickly recovered to close the ninth inning.
“He’s got good stuff,” said Redmond, who saw the 24-year-old in the Blue Jays’ minor-league system. “He did a nice job making an adjustment with a runner on base in picking up his pace. It’s something we’ve been working on with him.”
Dyson was called up to the majors in July for Toronto with only 21 minor-league appearances to his name, and this spring in Jupiter is the first time he has been a part of major-league camp. The Marlins claimed him off waivers.
