X-rays on Dahl's left foot came back negative, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. There was some initial concern that Dahl suffered a fracture after fouling a ball off his foot Wednesday, though further tests revealed the outfielder escaped with a bruise. The Rockies will wait and see how he feels following Thursday's off day before determining his status for Friday's series opener against the Yankees.
Dahl was removed from Wednesday's game with a left foot contusion, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Dahl fouled a ball off his foot during the first inning Wednesday; while he was initially able to stay in the game, the outfielder was ultimately replaced by Garrett Hampson in the third inning. He's set to be further evaluated following Wednesday's game, at which point more should be known regarding the severity of his injury.
