The White Sox have acquired outfielder Jarrod Dyson from the Pirates. Additionally, the club designated Nicky Delmonico for assignment and optioned Luis Gonzalez to the Schaumberg taxi squad.

Here is what the details of the Dyson transaction entail:

In what some are calling a questionable move, the Sox can shore up their depth in the outfield. Leury García is out for the season, Nomar Mazara has struggled at the plate, which may indicate more at-bats for Adam Engel, and Eloy Jiménez is a defensive liability.

This move allows for flexibility to make a defensive substitution. Dyson has been an above average fielder over his entire career. Pair that with the ability to pinch run later in games, especially with the new rules to start a runner on second in extra innings, and this move makes sense. The Sox need outfield depth, and fans should hope they don’t stop there.
