Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Shane Dyer began his professional career in 2008. He was originally drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 24th round of the 2006 amateur draft, but opted not to sign. He did sign after being taken by the Tampa Bay Rays in the sixth round of the 2008 amateur draft, one pick ahead of outfielder Robbie Grossman and ahead of infielder Josh Harrison. The Rays scout was Jayson Durocher.

He did not post a regular season winning record until 2013. He began his career going 3-4 in 2008, then went 1-10, 7-11 and 7-11 over the next three years, respectively. Though he posted a 5.06 ERA in his 1-10 2009 campaign, he managed a 2.72 mark the next year. In 2011, he pitched for the Surprise Saguaros of the Arizona Fall League, going 2-1 in six starts. He was 5-6 overall in 2012, going 1-3 with a 7.34 ERA in his first try at Triple-A. The Rays let him walk following the season and he signed with the Detroit Tigers, who let him go before the start of the 2013 campaign. He joined the Cincinnati Reds system for 2013 and 2014, going 6-5 the first year and 0-3 the latter. With the Senadores de San Juan in Puerto Rico during the 2014-2015 offseason, he was 1-1 with a 3.46 ERA.

Overall, Dyer was 29-50 with a 3.94 ERA in 184 minor league games (116 starts). He was a Southern League Mid-Season All-Star in 2012.
