News: Dyson went 1-for-3 with a walk and a career-high three RBI on Saturday against the Rangers. Impact: Dyson drove in a career-high three runs with a bases-loaded walk in the sixth inning and a two-run single in the seventh to chase Rangers starter Nick Tepesch out of the game. Known more for his speed on the basepaths rather than his ability to drive in runs, Dyson is hitting a healthy .367 for the month of August with seven RBI, which is more than any other month this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Dyson will start Monday for the fourth time in five games, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: A recent slump by Lorenzo Cain has dropped his batting average below .300 and put his job as the starting center fielder on notice, with Dyson representing the greatest beneficiary. Even in mostly part-time duty this season, Dyson has managed to steal 27 bases in 31 attempts, a total that could sharply rise over the final months if he's able to stave off Cain for playing time. It's possible the two players end up settling into some sort of lefty-righty platoon, with Dyson receiving the larger share of at-bats as the lefty hitter in the arrangement.(RotoWire, )
