PHILADELPHIA — After an extended period of inactivity, the Giants made a flurry of last-second deals right before Wednesday’s 1 p.m. trade deadline.
The two final moves? Shipping reliever Sam Dyson to the Minnesota Twins and acquiring infielder Scooter Gennett from the Cincinnati Reds.
As Mark Melancon explained his decision to waive his no-trade clause and accept a deal to the Atlanta Braves, news of Dyson’s move began to spread throughout the visiting clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park.
Dyson was on the field playing catch with teammates minutes before the Giants completed a deal to send him to Minnesota. An official announcement of the trade is not yet official, but The Athletic reported power-hitting outfielder Jaylin Davis will be part of the return.
