The Minnesota Twins and San Francisco Giants were able to hammer out a last-minute trade involving reliever Sam Dyson, according to a league source:

In return for Dyson, the Giants are receiving a trio of minor-leaguers. One of those prospects is Jaylin Davis, a source confirms. The other two are Prelander Berroa and Kai-Wei Teng, according to Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register.

Dyson, 31, was a 2010 fourth-round selection of the Blue Jays. He spent 2012 with them in the majors before being claimed off waivers by the Marlins in 2013. He was traded to the Rangers in 2015, and to the Giants in 2017.

In 49 games for the Giants this season, Dyson has an impressive 2.47 ERA with 17 runs allowed on 39 hits. In 51 innings, he has allowed seven walks while striking out 47 opponents.

Dyson is making $5 million this season and will be eligible for arbitration in 2020 before he becomes a free agent.

Davis, Berroa, and Teng did not appear on Minnesota’s Top 30 prospects list. Davis, 25, is a Triple-A outfielder drafted in the 24th round of the 2015 draft. Berroa, 19, is a rookie-level right-hander signed internationally in 2016. Teng, 20, is a Single-A right-hander signed internationally in 2017.

This move caps off a wild afternoon and a busy day for the Giants.
