Dahl (shoulder) signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Dahl was non-tendered by the Rockies in early December, but he'll land another major-league contract with Texas. The outfielder underwent shoulder surgery in September, but he's expected to be ready for spring training. Dahl has dealt with various injuries over the past several seasons, and he only mustered a .183/.222/.247 slash line with nine RBI over 24 games in 2020. The 26-year-old should compete for playing time in the Rangers' outfield, but he'll now have to play his home games without the advantage of the altitude in Colorado.
Dahl (shoulder) was non-tendered by the Rockies on Wednesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. On its face, this may seem like a surprise, but Dahl has not only been hurt regularly over his time with Colorado, he hasn't been that productive recently, either. Dahl's wRC+ has declined since his rookie season in 2016, and the 100 games he played in 2019 marked a career high. Without the benefit of Coors Field, his fantasy stock is now at an all-time low. He underwent shoulder surgery in September and his expected to be ready for spring training.
Dahl underwent surgery on his right shoulder Tuesday and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training in 2021, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. The 26-year-old had a myriad of issues addressed during the procedure, including cleanup of the labrum and rotator cuff and the removal of a bone spur and bursa sac. Dahl was limited to 24 games this season between shoulder and oblique issues, and he struggled when available with a .469 OPS. He'll look to enter 2021 in good health and get back on track next season.
Dahl was placed on the 45-day injured list with a right shoulder strain Wednesday. Dahl wasn't in the lineup over the past two games, and he'll be sidelined for the remainder of the regular season due to his shoulder injury. The 26-year-old only appeared in 24 games during the abbreviated 2020 season while battling injuries, and he struggled while slashing .183/.222/.247 with four extra-base hits and nine RBI. He'll now shift his focus toward preparing for spring training in 2021, while Kevin Pillar and Sam Hilliard could take over in center field over the final several games of the regular season.
Dahl is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Giants. Dahl finds himself on the bench again Tuesday and has now started only four of 12 games since returning from the injured list Sept. 9. Kevin Pillar receives another start in center field for the Rockies.
