7. July 31, 2015: Trading for Sam Dyson
The less notable of the 2015 deadline day deals, Texas picked up a great reliever in Sam Dyson from the Miami Marlins. Dyson, like Hamels and Diekman, was picked up as a part of bolstering the staff for a 2015 playoff run that unfortunately didn’t materialize. Still, Dyson held a consistent role in the bullpen for the Rangers for parts of 3 seasons.
Tomas Telis and Cody Ege, while making appearances at the big league level, haven’t really contributed in any notable way since they were dealt. At the time this was thought to be a steal and in 2018, it still was one.
