Dahl started his third career game Wednesday, and went 1-for-4 with his first career home run and a pair of strikeouts. Dahl's first career home run should come as a surprise to no one, as he flashed solid power in the minor leagues, slugging .569 between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque before being called up this season. The dinger was extra sweet for Dahl as it chased Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy, who entered the inning carrying a perfect game through five. Dahl should continue to get regular starts moving forward.
Dahl is starting in center field and hitting second for the Rockies on Wednesday, Rockies PR reports. Dahl will face off against against right-hander Dylan Bundy and the Orioles at Camden Yards on Wednesday. Since being promoted on Monday, the 22 year-old top prospect has started each of the three games in the outfield for the Rockies.
Dahl went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in his big league debut Monday. The Rockies started Dahl in left field and had him batting sixth in the order against Yovani Gallardo and the Orioles on Monday night. Dahl will play on the large side of a platoon, if not every day, for Colorado, at least until Gerardo Parra returns, but it's easy to see a scenario in which the Rockies deal an outfielder or two before the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline.
Dahl's contract was selected from Triple-A and he will start in left field and hit sixth Monday in Baltimore, ROOT Sports' Jenny Cavnar reports. One of the top fantasy prospects in the game, Dahl was called up Monday in a somewhat surprising move, as the non-contending Rockies will start his service time clock despite the fact that he was not on the 40-man roster and had logged just 16 games at Triple-A. Dahl, 22, slashed .314/.394/.569 with 18 home runs and 17 steals in 92 games between Double-A and Triple-A, and should immediately be added in almost all formats. He will presumably play almost every day in left field and could move up in the order if he gets off to a hot start. There have not been many impact minor leaguers called up this season, but Dahl has a good chance of being an exception to that trend.
Dahl is to be promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Dahl, the Rockies No. 2 prospect, will likely replace reserve outfielder Brandon Barnes, who is expected to be designated for assignment soon. The 22-year old has impressed lately, slashing .484/.529/.887 over 62 at-bats in 16 games at the Triple-A level.
