Dahl is being strongly considered to serve as the Rockies' leadoff hitter this season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Dahl led off just three times last season, with Charlie Blackmon typically filling the role. Dahl doesn't have a ton of speed, stealing a modest 14 bases in 240 career games, but his .346 career on-base percentage should serve him well enough in the role. If he does indeed win the job, expect a shift in his production from RBI to runs as well as more opportunities to run and more total plate appearances.
Dahl agreed to a one-year, $2.475 million deal with the Rockies, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
This is his first of four years as an arbitration-eligible player. Dahl, who will turn 26 on April 1, has hit .297/.346/.521 as a big leaguer, but injuries have limited him to just 240 games since debuting in 2016.
Dahl (ankle) won't return for the final couple weeks of the regular season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Dahl is progressing in his recovery from a right ankle sprain, but with the season in its closing stages and the Rockies well out of playoff contention there's no real reason to risk rushing him back. The 25-year-old will finish 2019 with a .302/.353/.524 slash line, 15 home runs and 61 RBI in 100 games.
Dahl (ankle) is progressing but may not have enough time to be activated before the 2019 season comes to an end, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Dahl was placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 3 due to a high right ankle sprain, and although he's been able to resume running, the Rockies aren't sure he'll be able to play again this year. He'll have just over two weeks to get back to full strength.
Dahl (ankle) has been cleared to do light jogging in addition to taking swings in the batting cage, the Associated Press reports.
The activity represents a step forward from what Dahl was able to do last week, but the Rockies still have yet to pinpoint a target date for the outfielder's return. He can safely be ruled out for this week, as he didn't travel with the team to California for its two three-game series in Los Angeles and San Diego.
Dahl (ankle) said Wednesday that he is "getting better every day," but he is still not jogging yet, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
The 25-year-old has been out of action since Aug. 2 with a high ankle sprain. He had previously suggested that he was eyeing a return to Colorado during the first week of September, but that now seems highly unlikely with Dahl still not doing any baseball activities besides throwing and taking dry swings. Dahl has been running on an underwater treadmill to strengthen the ankle. Until he progresses to running on flat ground, his timetable will remain murky.
Dahl (ankle) is optimistic he'll be reinstated from the 10-day injured list during the first week of September, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Dahl was sent to the injured list Aug. 3 due to a right ankle sprain and appears to be making solid progress. "It's just continuing to strengthen [the ankle], and once it's ready to go, it's ready to go," Dahl said Monday. "I'm way better now than I was three or four days ago. I'm very excited about it." Dahl has yet to resume full baseball activities but has been able to run underwater on a treadmill and participate in throwing drills.
Dahl was placed on the 10-day injured list with a high right ankle sprain Saturday.
Dahl suffered the injury while changing directions in the outfield Friday. The nature of the sprain suggests that his absence won't be brief, though the Rockies have yet to provide a target return date. Ian Desmond will likely slide back to center field in his absence, with Raimel Tapia starting in left. Yonathan Daza was recalled to presumably fill a bench role.
Dahl was diagnosed with a sprained right ankle after exiting Friday's game against the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Dahl will undergo further testing Saturday to determine a possible timetable for his return. Though this is relatively good news for the Rockies, he'll likely still require a trip to the injured list.
Dahl was carted off the field after injuring his right ankle during Friday's game against the Giants, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Dahl appeared to suffer the injury changing direction in the outfield while chasing a flyball. The extent of the injury is not yet known, but considering he needed to be carted off the field, he'll likely miss some time.
Dahl went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, three RBI and two runs to help the Rockies to a 9-1 victory over the Dodgers on Monday.
It was a big day from atop the order for the lefty, as he cranked his 15th long ball of the season with a two-run shot off Josh Sborz and wound up driving in three of his team's nine runs for the game. Tabbed as a popular breakout candidate before the season, Dahl has largely lived up to the billing so far in 2019, as he's sporting a .304/.356/.525 slash line across 401 plate appearances.
Dahl (foot) will start in right field and bat third Saturday against the Yankees.
Dahl's left foot has been bothering him since he fouled a ball off himself Wednesday against the Giants, resulting in his early departure from that contest. The 25-year-old was given the green light to rejoin the starting nine for Friday's series opener in New York but was ultimately scratched while he continued to deal with some soreness. Though Dahl wasn't summoned off the bench Friday, the rest he received was apparently enough for him to overcome the issue, as the Rockies will use him in the outfield even with the designated hitter spot available.
Dahl was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Yankees due to a bruised foot, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Dahl is still dealing with a bruised left foot after fouling a ball off himself during Wednesday's clash, so he'll head to the bench for at least one more day. His availability for Saturday will likely depend on how he feels upon his arrival to the ballpark.
Dahl (foot) is starting in left field and batting cleanup Friday against the Yankees, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Dahl was dealing with a left foot bruise after fouling a ball off his foot Wednesday, but he's ready to go following Thursday's scheduled off day. The 25-year-old has scuffled through 12 games in July with a .214/.267/.333 slash line and 16 strikeouts in 42 at-bats.
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.
Dahl is not starting Tuesday against the Giants, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Dahl has gone 5-for-20 since the All-Star break. Raimel Tapia gets the nod in left field in his absence.
Dahl went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, a second run scored, a stolen base and two walks in Friday's 3-2 win over the Reds.
Dahl nabbed the stolen base after his walk in the first inning, and then supplied the game-tying homer in the eighth inning. Two batters later, Daniel Murphy's solo shot put the Rockies ahead. Dahl is up to 13 homers, just three shy of his personal best from last year. The 25-year-old has added 52 RBI and 57 runs scored in 81 games this season.
Dahl went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer Sunday against the Dodgers.
Dahl came through with a home run in the fifth inning, though it wasn't enough to lift his team to victory in the series finale. The 25-year-old has been seeing the ball well at the plate over his last eight games, launching five home runs while registering 15 RBI over that stretch.
Dahl is not in Saturday's lineup against the Dodgers.
This is a bit of a surprise, given that Dahl is hitting .320 with four home runs over his last six games. Raimel Tapia will start in left field and hit second.
