Appearing on the Ben and Skin Show on Monday, Rangers GM Jon Daniels said that he’s narrowed down suitors for reliever Sam Dyson down to two or three and expects to complete a trade within the next day or two, Jamey Newberg reports.

Dyson, 29, was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Friday. He compiled an ugly 10.80 ERA with a 7/12 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings of relief this season. The right-hander also spent some time on the disabled list in April with a hand injury.

Dyson had been one of the Rangers’ best relievers over the last three years, compiling an aggregate 2.45 ERA over 187 2/3 innings. It’s no surprise that Daniels has received interest in Dyson, particular when his price is so low.

Matt Bush has handled save situations for the most part this season sans Dyson, racking up six saves with a 1.37 ERA in 19 2/3 innings.
