Why Jarrod Dyson did not pinch-run right away

After the game, Ned Yost said it was not a steal situation. Twins closer Glen Perkins is left-handed, so a runner has a very difficult time getting a jump. Once Perkins does go home, he only takes 1.1 seconds to get the ball there. The average is about 1.4 seconds, so Perkins is very quick to home plate — too quick for Dyson to steal.
