Dahlstrand has signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox, the Boston Globe reports. The 24-year-old right-hander will remain with the only organization he's known, for an eighth season. Dahlstrand made eight starts in 2016 as he worked his way back from Tommy John surgery, and the results with Double-A Portland (6.05 ERA) suggest he hadn't quite regained a feel for his pitches. He will likely spend most (if not all) of 2017 at the upper levels of the minor leagues.
Dahlstrand (elbow) made a rehab start for Short Season Lowell on Wednesday, allowing one run on six hits and one walk while striking out one. The 24-year-old Dahlstrand has made a slow slog through the organization, but had some scouting buzz after 2014 and appeared poised for a breakthrough season. After an impressive start to 2015, he underwent Tommy John elbow surgery and has been working his way back since.
Dahlstrand (elbow) is rehabbing with the Red Sox's Gulf Coast League affiliate. He's made two starts since returning to action on June 25, fanning 12 and walking two over 8.2 innings and allowing just one earned runs. It's believed that Dahlstrand will head back to High-A Salem once he's healthy enough to return to the rotation.
