Dan Lyons returns for his third season as a Duck in 2013. The Rochester, Minnesota native earned All-Star status and was named the Atlantic League Championship Series MVP in 2012 after registering the game-winning 3-run double in Game 3, as well as the championship-clinching bunt single in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 5 of the finals.
Drafted by the Washington Nationals in the 14th round of the 2007 Major League Draft, the 27-year old spent the majority of the 2010 season with Potomac of the Carolina League compiling a fielding percentage of over .960. Prior to starting his professional career, Lyons spent two seasons playing shortstop for the University of Minnesota and was only the fourth Minnesota shortstop to field .950 or higher since 1970.
