Jarrod Dyson’s 2017 season with the Mariners has ended.
Just before the teams game on Monday with the Rangers at Globe Life Park, the teams manager Scott Servais confirmed that Dyson hadn’t made the trip and that he had instead elected to have surgery to repair some muscular damage in his pelvic region.
Talking about the injury and repair Servais said that was similar to that of a sports hernia.
“It’s a very minor thing that won’t affect him at all going forward, but he chose to have it done at this time,” Servais said. “He’s obviously done for the season.”
The injury occurred when Dyson tweaked his groin in the outfield and went on the disabled list on Aug19th. He returned on Aug 31st but apparently wasn’t 100 percent.
After being activated, he played in just two games. One of them a complete game on Sept 1st, and then exiting the game the following day in the sixth inning with more tightness/discomfort in the groin area.
“When he was healthy, he did a lot for us in the outfield defense-wise and what he can do on the bases, that’s his game,” Servais said. “Unfortunately, he decided he couldn’t play through it.”
In all, Dyson played in 111 games, batting .251 with a .324 on-base percentage, 13 doubles, three triples, five homers, 30 RBI and 28 stolen bases. He had 11 assists in the outfield and had 15 defensive runs saved. It’s been a long hard road at the club since the Mariners acquired him from Kansas City for pitcher Nathan Karns in the offseason.
