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.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' David Dahl: On bench against lefty

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.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
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.

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.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' David Dahl: Expected back during next series
Manager Chris Woodward said Sunday that he expects Dahl (ribs) to be activated from the injured list at some point during the upcoming series in Oakland, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Dahl hit the IL on May 26 with a left rib cage contusion. The outfielder later developed back issues in early June, which may have pushed back his eventual rehab assignment. There were rumblings that Dahl would be activated to take Willie Calhoun's (forearm) roster spot prior to Sunday's game against the Royals, but Woodward said that the club didn't want to rush him back too soon. Jason Martin was recalled instead and could wind up being the odd man out again when Dahl returns in the next few days.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' David Dahl: Rehab moves to Frisco
Dahl (ribs) recently had his rehab assignment transferred from Triple-A Round Rock to Double-A Frisco, Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Dahl was with Round Rock while it was on a homestand but will move to Frisco with the Express headed out on the road. He slugged a home run and knocked in four for Frisco on Wednesday, the fourth game of his rehab assignment. It's unclear when the Rangers plan to activate him, but he may not have an everyday role in Texas. The club has been intrigued by the improvement of Eli White, who is slashing .293/.370/.585 with three home runs since his callup 12 games ago.... See More ... See Less
