Outfielder Jarrod Dyson signed with Arizona Diamondbacks Monday on a two-year deal Monday, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. He reportedly will receive $7.5 million over two years. The signing serves as a consolation for the Diamondbacks, who were unable to re-sign J.D. Martinez. The right fielder agreed to a deal with the Boston Red Sox Monday, per Pedro Gomez of ESPN. As Heyman noted, Arizona also now has a contingency option should A.J. Pollack leave in free agency following the 2018 season. Dyson, 33, appeared in 111 games for the Seattle Mariners in 2017, hitting .251 with five home runs, 30 RBI, 56 runs scored and 28 stolen bases. His season ended in early September after he required surgery for a sports hernia. He led Seattle in stolen bases, while the homers and RBI were career highs.
