Rockies' David Dahl: Chances of cracking roster slimming

Dahl may start the season in the minors now that Carlos Gonzalez is back with the Rockies, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The speedy 23-year-old initially was in the mix to be the primary right fielder, but with the veteran returning, the Rockies may opt to have Dahl get consistent at-bats at Triple-A Albuquerque before bringing him back to the majors. It's not set in stone, though -- there have also been rumblings about keeping Dahl in the majors considering his recent success at the plate (9-for-29 with with four homers and 13 RBI after starting the spring 0-for-15). Dahl has a bright future if he can stay healthy, but his playing-time outlook is fairly murky as things stand now.
