Dyson was one of the top relievers for World Baseball Classic champion Team USA this spring, going 1-0 while tossing 6.0 scoreless innings with four strikeouts in five games (6.0ip, 0h, 0r, 0er, 0hr, 0bb, 4so). 

Drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the fourth round of the 2010 draft, Dyson has appeared in 203 Major League games with Toronto (2012), Miami (2013-2015) and Texas (2015-2017), compiling a record of 12-15 with a 3.54 ERA along with 40 saves. 

The Giants have transferred left-handed pitcher Madison Bumgarner to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Dyson on the 40-man roster. Bumgarner has been on the disabled list for the past 46 days with a left shoulder strain.
