Rangers' David Dahl: Belts first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Orioles.

Dahl hit his first homer of the season when he and Nick Solak went back-to-back in the fifth inning. Dahl made his fourth consecutive start at designated hitter, but he could move back to a regular gig in left field with Willie Calhoun (groin) expected to return Saturday.

Rangers' David Dahl: Gets day off Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays.

Dahl went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run in Wednesday's win over Tampa Bay, but he'll get a breather for the series finale. Eli White will start in left field Thursday, batting eighth.

Rangers' David Dahl: Drives in two against Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Wednesday against the Rays.

Dahl came through with a two-run double in the seventh inning, providing some insurance runs in an eventual victory for the Rangers. The performance was Dahl's fourth multi-hit effort of the season, though his first in his last five games. He's also generated very modest production through 11 contests this season, as he has only three RBI, no home runs and seven runs scored.

Rangers' David Dahl: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

Dahl sat out Friday's 3-0 loss to the Padres in the series opener while battling an illness, but he checked back into the starting nine for Saturday's 7-4 loss, going hitless in three at-bats. The outfielder isn't believed to have suffered a setback with his health coming out of the contest, as manager Chris Woodward may just have wanted to keep the lefty-hitting Dahl on the bench with southpaw Adrian Morejon on the mound for San Diego. Eli White will cover left field in Dahl's stead Sunday.

Rangers' David Dahl: Enters as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl (illness) entered Friday's game as a pinch hitter and lined out for Eli White in a 3-0 loss to the Padres.

Dahl was scratched from the lineup after feeling under the weather and was replaced by White in left field. It was not considered a serious issue, which was evident by him being used during Friday's game.

Rangers' David Dahl: Sitting with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres since he's feeling under the weather, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, but the 26-year-old will nonetheless be held out of Friday's contest. Eli White will receive the start in left field in Dahl's absence versus San Diego.

Rangers' David Dahl: Delivers immediately for new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl went 3-for-5 with a double, a walk and two runs scored in Thursday's 14-10 loss to Kansas City.

Dahl had an impressive debut for his new team. It doesn't hurt that he's batting second in front of the slugging Joey Gallo, so Dahl could see good pitches to hit if that arrangement continues. That, and the motivation of being non-tendered by the Rockies during the offseason, could make him a bounce-back candidate.

Rangers' David Dahl: Playing outfield in 'B' game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl (knee) will bat third and start in left field Wednesday in the Rangers' "B" game.

As expected, Dahl will be back in action two days after fouling a ball off his right knee. The 26-year-old looks poised to open the regular season as an everyday player in the Texas outfield.

Rangers' David Dahl: Likely to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl (knee) could appear in a "B" game Wednesday, Kennedi Landry of reports.

Dahl fouled a ball off his knee during a game Monday and was removed for precautionary reasons. He sat out Tuesday's game, but he apparently could get reps Wednesday. Manager Chris Woodward said Dahl probably would have stayed in Monday's game had it been a regular-season contest.

Rangers' David Dahl: Exit considered precautionary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl was removed from Monday's game against Colorado as a precaution after fouling a ball off his right knee, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Dahl has had more than his fair share of bad luck with injuries, but it appears as though he's not dealing with anything particularly significant this time around. Assuming he's dealing with nothing worse than a bruise, he should be able to get back on the field within a few days.

Rangers' David Dahl: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl left Monday's game against the Rockies with a team trainer, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The nature of Dahl's injury is unclear, but he appeared to be walking gingerly as he left for the clubhouse. Injuries are sadly nothing new for the outfielder, who appeared in just 37 percent of the Rockies' games over the last four seasons before being non-tendered in December.

Rangers' David Dahl: Off throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl is no longer on a prescribed throwing program following offseason shoulder surgery, Kennedi Landry of reports.

Dahl, who was limited to designated-hitter duties to start spring training, is now playing the field -- he made his second start in left field Tuesday. After going 3-for-3 on Tuesday, Dahl is 6-for-18 with two doubles, two RBI and four runs scored during Cactus League play. He lines up to be the Rangers' everyday left fielder.

Rangers' David Dahl: Starting in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl (shoulder) is starting in left field and batting second in Friday's spring game against the White Sox.

The 26-year-old has been recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and was previously limited to serving as the designated hitter, but he'll play the field Friday. Barring any setback, Dahl will be a full go by Opening Day for the Rangers.

Rangers' David Dahl: Makes spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl (shoulder) started at designated hitter and went 0-for-1 with a walk in Monday's spring game against the Giants.

The Rangers will not have Dahl take the field until about mid-March as he returns from offseason shoulder surgery. Until then, he'll get at-bats as DH. He's highly motivated after the Rockies non-tendered him during the offseason following a year in which he batted .183/.222/.247 through just 24 games. In addition to the shoulder, Dahl dealt with lower-back soreness. The 26-year-old is expected to start in left field, and it's worth noting that he's just two years removed from an All-Star season.

Rangers' David Dahl: Held out of field early in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl (shoulder) will be limited to designated hitter during the first two weeks of spring training games, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Dahl won't be playing the outfield as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. The 26-year-old is expected to be the Rangers' starter in left field.

December 11, 2020 06:32 PM
Rangers' David Dahl: Agrees to terms with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl (shoulder) signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, Jeff Passan of 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.

Rockies' David Dahl: Cut loose by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dahl (shoulder) was non-tendered by the Rockies on Wednesday, Thomas Harding of 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.

Rockies' David Dahl: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Rockies' David Dahl: Placed on 45-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' David Dahl: Sitting again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
