The Trade: Sam Dyson to the Texas Rangers in return for Tomas Telis and Cody Ege
Albeit small-scale, this may be the best trade we’ve seen the Marlins make in the past year. Miami dealt Sam Dyson, whose contract expires after this season, for two successful minor leaguers.
Catcher Tomas Telis was the first piece in this trade. Telis batted .291 with five home runs and 25 RBI in Triple-A before being called up to the Rangers, where he struggled. Telis stands at 5’8, 215 lbs, and posted a .250 AVG in 18 games with the Rangers in 2014.
Cody Ege, a 24-year-old left reliever, owns a 6-2 record with a 1.00 ERA in 35 appearances between A and AA this year.
While Miami’s farm system still ranks among the worst in baseball, these acquisitions help improve the organizational depth within the minors.
