A Potential Deal
The Royals would be interested in Patrick Corbin if they thought his upside was still intact. They might want someone like Shelby Miller, but it is doubtful Arizona is willing to give up on Miller so soon and his price might be more than the Royals can pay.
The Royals have some nice prospects, and they could grab a reliever. Kansas City is shopping for a new DH, and Yasmany Tomas could be an option. Tomas is unlikely given his cost and the Royals tight payroll. Plus, the Royals would have to throw in a prospect to even this deal out a bit.

From a Diamondbacks perspective, Dyson is in his third year of arbitration eligibility before becoming a free agent at the end of the 2017 season. MLB Trade Rumors projects Dyson to make $2.5 million.
Even if it comes in a separate package with another team, it would be nice for the Diamondbacks to find a DH desperate team to deal Tomas and then grab Dyson.

This would help the payroll and the defense. Let’s see if Hazen is thinking along the same lines and pulls the trigger! Dyson would fill a need, adding speed, good defense, and a left-handed bat if Arizona could make a deal for him.
