Top David Dahl News

  • David Dahl: Heads to free agency

    Dahl exercised the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Nationals on Monday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Dahl will choose to become a free agent again since a promotion to the majors wasn't imminent after he joined the Nationals organization in July. Over his 18 games with Triple-A Rochester, the outfielder slashed .224/.304/.343 with one home run.

  • Nationals' David Dahl: Inks MiLB deal with Nationals

    Dahl signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Dahl was released July 11 by Milwaukee after slashing .294/.357/.468 with nine homers, 44 runs, 41 RBI and three stolen bases in 67 games at Triple-A Nashville to begin the 2022 season. The 28-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since August of 2021 but will likely be an option to join the Nationals, who have gotten little production from the non-Juan Soto members of their outfield.

  • David Dahl: Cut loose by Milwaukee

    The Brewers released Dahl from his minor-league contract July 11.

    After re-signing with Milwaukee over the winter on a minor-league deal that included an invitation to big-league spring training, Dahl failed to win a spot on the Opening Day roster and opened the campaign at Triple-A Nashville. Though the historically injury-prone Dahl enjoyed good health at Nashville, he was unable to earn a call-up to the Brewers despite submitting a .294/.357/.468 slash line (120 wRC+). Dahl's pedigree and strong production at the MLB level earlier in his career with the Rockies should allow him to find an opportunity elsewhere, but the 28-year-old still looks to be a long way off from re-emerging as an everyday player in the majors.

  • Brewers' David Dahl: Set to open season in minors

    The Brewers reassigned Dahl to their minor-league camp Monday.

    Coming off a 2021 campaign in which he slashed .210/.247/.322 over 220 big-league plate appearances with the Rangers, Dahl was forced to settle for a minor-league deal with Milwaukee in free agency. Though he was given the chance to compete for a bench job with the big club in spring training, Dahl ultimately wasn't able to make enough of an impression to push his way on to the Opening Day roster. He's expected to begin the campaign at Triple-A Nashville, where he'll look to stay healthy and show some semblance of the power/speed combination that once made him a prized prospect in the Rockies system.

  • Brewers' David Dahl: Signs minors deal with Milwaukee

    Dahl agreed to a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Dahl was released by the Rangers in early August after struggling to a .210/.247/.322 line in 63 games. He's had some effective seasons in the past with the Rockies and is still just 27 years old, so it's certainly possible he becomes a useful piece for the Brewers, but the last time he produced an above-average batting line was 2019, so expectations should remain low for now.

  • David Dahl: Reaches free agency

    The Rangers granted Dahl his unconditional release Wednesday.

    Texas dropped Dahl from its 40-man roster and exposed him to waivers, but none of MLB's other 29 teams were willing to scoop up the outfielder and assume the money remaining on his one-year, $2.7 million deal. Once a touted prospect in the Colorado system, Dahl has endured numerous injuries over the past few seasons that have stunted his development and sent his career on a downward trajectory. Even when he was healthy enough to play this season, the 27-year-old outfielder struggled mightily at the plate, slashing .210/.247/.322 with a 26.8 percent strikeout rate over 220 plate appearances. He's now free to look for a new opportunity with another organization.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Not starting Monday

    Dahl is out of the lineup Monday against the Angels.

    Dahl is 2-for-20 in his past seven games and will take a seat for the second time in the past three contests. Adolis Garcia will shift to right field while Eli White starts in center.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: DFA'd by Texas

    Dahl was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Monday.

    Dahl was designated for assignment by the Rockies during the offseason, and he didn't do enough in 63 games for the Rangers to warrant sticking with him for the rest of the season. The 27-year-old has a .569 OPS and 26.8 percent strikeout rate this season, and he has especially struggled against lefties with a .102/.156/.136 slash line.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: On bench against lefty

    Dahl will sit Saturday against Seattle.

    Dahl owns a miserable .105/.161/.140 slash line against southpaws this season, so it's hardly surprising to see him on the bench against lefty Tyler Anderson. Jason Martin, Eli White and Adolis Garcia will make up the Rangers' outfield.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Takes seat Wednesday

    Dahl isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Dahl has gone just 2-for-13 with three walks and five strikeouts across the last four games, and he'll get a breather with left-hander Madison Bumgarner starting for Arizona on Wednesday. Curtis Terry will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Has RBI, outfield assist in loss

    Dahl started in left field and went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Detroit.

    Per usual, Dahl was in the lineup against a right-hander. In addition to the RBI, he also threw a runner out at home trying to score from second base on a single. Dahl is caught up in the outfield/DH shuffle and isn't playing every day.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Absent from Tuesday's lineup

    Dahl is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Dahl will take a seat against lefty Tarik Skubal after going 1-for-3 with a double in Monday's loss. Andy Ibanez will handle the DH duties and bat seventh.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Out for second half of doubleheader

    Dahl is out of the lineup for the second half of Sunday's doubleheader with the Blue Jays.

    Dahl will take a seat after he went 0-for-3 with a strikeout while playing all seven innings in the Rangers' 5-0 loss in the first game. Joey Gallo will spell Dahl in right field for the second contest of the day.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Sitting against lefty

    Dahl is not starting Friday against the Blue Jays and left-hander Robbie Ray.

    Dahl has gone 8-for-28 with a pair of doubles since returning from a rib injury July 1. As is often the case, he'll sit against the southpaw Friday as Andy Ibanez handles the DH duties.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Three-hit day

    Dahl went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Athletics.

    Dahl notched his second three-hit effort over his last four games and scored the Rangers' only run in the fifth. Since being activated off the injured list July 1, Dahl is slashing .286/.310/.357 with two extra-base hits, two RBI, two runs scored and 1:6 BB:K over nine games. He's been pretty lousy overall, hitting just .221/.253/.343 with four homers, 14 RBI, 18 runs scored, two stolen bases and a 7:47 BB:K over 183 plate appearances. He's only 27 and has room for improvement, but Dahl hasn't the same since 2019 when he made the All-Star team.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Not starting against lefty

    Dahl is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Athletics.

    Dahl was activated from the injured list July 1 after recovering from a rib injury. He's started every game since July 2, going 5-for-21 with a pair of doubles and a stolen base. The 27-year-old will get a breather Friday against lefty Cole Irvin as John Hicks serves as the DH.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Knocks two doubles

    Dahl went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and one run scored Tuesday against the Tigers.

    Dahl was in the lineup for the fourth consecutive game since being activated from the injured list July 1. Tuesday was not only his best effort in that span, but also one of his best of the entire season as he delivered an RBI double in both the fifth and seventh innings. Though he has only a 59 wRC+ across 173 plate appearances on the campaign, Dahl has recorded four hits over his last two games.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Makes first start off IL

    Dahl started in right field and went 0-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Mariners.

    This was Dahl's first start since being activated off the injured list. He was deemed ready after nearly a month on the IL with injured ribs, having completed a two-week rehab assignment between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock. "He's fully healthy," manager Chris Woodward told Doug Drawley of the Dallas Morning News. "We had a progression for him and didn't rush him back. He's playing with some confidence and can help us offensively. Especially since he was struggling before." Dahl hit just .207 with four home runs and 12 RBI over 43 games prior to hitting the injured list.

  • Rangers' David Dahl: Activated from injured list

    Dahl (ribs) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Dahl had been on the injured list since May 26 due to a left rib cage contusion, and he dealt with back issues in early June. The 27-year-old spent just under two weeks on a rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock, and he hit .412 with a home run, a triple, a double, nine RBI, eight runs and a stolen base across nine games. Dahl should reclaim a regular spot in the lineup going forward, while catcher Jose Trevino (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
