Among the Giants' many moves Wednesday before the 1 p.m. PT MLB trade deadline was the departure of reliever Sam Dyson, whom the team dealt to the Twins.

The Giants traded Dyson to Minnesota for three prospects: Outfielder Jaylin Davis and pitchers Prelander Berroa and Kai-Wei Teng.

Dyson, 31, has been a shutdown arm out of the bullpen for the Giants this season. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 2.47 ERA, but acquiring three prospects for the veteran is a solid return. 

A source familiar with the Twins organization provided scouting reports to NBC Sports Bay Area on the three prospects. 

Jaylin Davis, OF, 25

Scouting report: Big power, especially to the opposite-field gap. Hits the ball really hard, has been on fire since going up to Triple-A. Swing-and-miss risk. Average right fielder and can handle center in a pinch. Solid throwing arm.

Davis is a former 24th-round pick by the Twins out of Appalachian State. He has huge power potential and has been raking since he was promoted to Triple-A Rochester. 

The right-handed power bat was hitting .331 with 15 homers and a 1.112 OPS in 41 Triple-A games when the Giants acquired him. 

Prelander Berroa, RHP, 19 

Scouting report: Undersized righty out of the Dominican Republic. Big arm, working on his command. Throws 92-98 mph, averages 94. Slider and changeup still in development. 

Berroa is only 5-foot-11 and 170 but has a live arm. Through seven starts in Advanced Rookie League, Berroa is 2-1 with a 4.55 ERA and has 37 strikeouts through 31 2/3 innings pitched. 

FanGraphs lists Berroa as the Giants' new No. 19 prospect.

Kai-Wei Teng, RHP, 20

Scouting report: Signed for 500K out of Taiwan. Four-pitch mix. Throws 90-95 mph, averages 93. Curveball is his best secondary pitch. Hard downer at 77-83. 

Teng, 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds is enjoying a solid season in Single-A. He has a 4-0 record with a 1.60 ERA and 1.07 WHIP.
