Seattle Mariners outfielder Jarrod Dyson.
That sounds weird, right?
But Dyson was traded on Friday to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for right-handed pitcher Nathan Karns. Dyson, who played his entire career in the Royals organization after being picked in the 50th round of the 2006 draft, posted a pair of messages to Royals fans.
First, this is what he wrote on Instagram:
