The Twins should be guaranteeing any money to a 30s reliever coming off shoulder surgery.

Could be... but where is the point where the Twins (or any other team) would deem it an acceptable risk.

I'm sure Dyson doesn't want to go an entire calendar year without getting paid.

Sign him to:
2020 - $2M
2021 - $3M

That's probably a little more than is necessary, but that probably gets it done on Dyson's side. At that point you're competing against all 29 other teams, so a little overpay (if you want him) will likely be required.

You might get Dyson toward the tail end of 2020 and you'd have him for 2021. If Dyson gets fixed, then $5M is worth it. If he's not fixed, then you're lighting $5M on fire.

At the tail end of 2020, Dyson will be 32 1/2 and he will be 33 for most of the 2021 season.

If the Twins can’t find an in house replacement by the start of 2021, I would call that a pretty major failure on the development staff.
