|Jarrod Dyson goes hitless in rehab debut|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/6/13) Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson led off in the first game of his rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha Thursday, going 0 for 3 before being removed for a defensive replacement.

(6/4/13) Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson, who is on the disabled list with a high ankle sprain, said he's running well Tuesday, FOX Sports reports. But Dyson said he's not running at "Mr. Zoombya" speed yet.
Dyson said he thinks he's getting closer to going on an injury rehab assignment, though nothing is planned.
Dyson was hitting .268 in 41 at-bats before the injury with a homer, eight RBI and six stolen bases.

(5/28/13) Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson received medical clearance to begin jogging Tuesday, the Kansas City Star reports. Dyson is recovering from a high right ankle sprain.
"I still feel a little pain there," he said, "but it’s just a process I’ve got to go through. I went 90 feet four times. They were just trying to get a gauge if the pain stayed with me after I stopped. It’s going away when I stop."
Dyson does not have a timetable to return for the Royals.
"I don’t know anything yet," he said. "Maybe after (the club) comes back off the road (following a weekend series at Texas), I’ll know a lot more. I feel I’m going to be all right. I’ve made some pretty good progress and, hopefully, I’m back in the lineup within a couple of weeks."

(5/25/13) Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson is expected to begin running this week, as his recovery from a high ankle sprain is going well.
Dyson is already doing hitting and throwing drills -- while wearing a boot -- but has not yet begun running. He hopes to do so Tuesday, according to MLB.com.
"With a high ankle sprain, you can't really rush it," Dyson said. "You've got to make sure you are able to go out there and help the team. I'm not going to say I want to be 100 percent, but if I'm close, then I am ready to roll."
The Royals have lost seven of eight games since Dyson injured himself May 15, and he is not expected to return to the field for another two or three weeks.
|Jarrod Dyson to miss 2-4 weeks with mild ankle sprain|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/17/13) Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson was diagnosed with a "mild high ankle sprain," which will keep him sidelined for 2-4 weeks, according to The Kansas City Star.
Dyson sustained the injury in the eighth inning of Wednesday's game and was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday. He was hitting .294 (5 for 17) with a home run, triple, two doubles and five RBI in his last five games before getting hurt.
|Pegged as a pure burner who wouldn't amount to more than a role player at the major-league level, Jarrod Dyson was halfway decent when given the opportunity to fill in for an injured Lorenzo Cain in center field early last season. In fact, in his first month on the job, he reached base at about a .350 clip. Of course, he quickly came back down to earth, giving the Royals cause to experiment with other options in center field before Cain finally returned in mid-July. In the end, though, they never found a backup outfielder they liked more than Dyson. That's good news if you're looking for cheap steals in an AL-only league. He delivered 30 in only 292 at-bats last year and should again make a worthwhile contribution in the category as the Royals' first line of defense against an injury. Of course, he won't contribute much other than that, but what more do you want from a role player? (Updated 1/8/13)|
