Royals trade Jarrod Dyson to Mariners for Nathan Karns

That’s what speed….did.

Kansas City got the starting rotation help is so desperately needed.

The Mariners got the speed they sought on the base paths.

“As so often times is the case, once teams know there is a mutual interest in a player — in their case Jarrod, in our case Nate — we just stayed in touch and the timing was right,” Royals general manager Dayton Moore said. “The deal was obviously attractive for us.”...

Dyson, a former 50th-round draft pick, became a fan favorite in Kansas City thanks primarily to his speed on the bases. He hit .278 while stealing 30 bases a year ago.

“We’ve had many conversations about Dyson specifically,” Dipoto said, “and what a good fit he was for our team. He’s an elite-level defender. He’s dynamic on the bases, a fearless base stealer. And the combination of Jarrod Dyson, Leonys Martin and Jean Segura hitting somewhere between the bottom and top of your lineup really creates a three-player dynamic on the bases for us that is probably different than the Mariners have had in a long time and perhaps most different than most teams in our league.”
