MIAMI -- Sam Dyson recorded his first Major League win in the Marlins' 6-5 victory over the Cubs on Tuesday night at Marlins Park, but he couldn't relish it for too long. Immediately after the game, manager Mike Redmond called Dyson into his office to let him know he was being sent him back down to Triple-A New Orleans in order to make room for Nathan Eovaldi's return from paternity leave on Wednesday.
"I got him the game card, so he was pretty fired up about that," Redmond said. "But he didn't want to put it in his bag, so I said, 'Well, I'm gonna keep it for you then.'"
Dyson, ranked 14th among the Marlins' Top 20 prospects according to MLB.com, was recalled on Sunday to take Eovaldi's spot on the roster. Tuesday night was Dyson's first outing, and while he allowed an inherited run to score in the seventh, he threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out one.
At New Orleans this season, Dyson is 1-1 with a 2.66 ERA in 20 1/3 innings.
