The Rangers will not have Dahl take the field until about mid-March due to the shoulder injury that required offseason 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 is just two years removed from an All-Star season.

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

Dahl returned from a bout of lower-back soreness Wednesday but has been benched in favor of Kevin Pillar for both games thus far. It's possible Dahl isn't yet fully healthy, as both games came against right-handed pitchers.

Dahl was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Astros due to the issue, and it's serious enough to keep him sidelined for at least another 10 days. Sam Hilliard, who started in place of Dahl on Tuesday, is a candidate to fill in for the outfielder, while Brendan Rodgers was recalled from Colorado's alternate camp in a corresponding move. Prior to landing on the IL, Dahl was slashing just .189/.237/.243 with zero home runs and a 4:21 BB:K in 19 games.

Dahl has been cold at the plate to begin the season, so manager Bud Black decided to make a change for the team's series against Seattle. After sitting in the series opener, Dahl was removed from his leadoff spot. He went 0-for-3 with a run and one walk Saturday while batting seventh and tallied two hits from the five-hole Sunday. If Dahl is able to turn things around at the plate while batting lower in the order, it's unclear whether he'll return to his spot at the top of the lineup. The 26-year-old carries a .606 OPS with six RBI and 12 strikeouts over his first 14 games this season.

Dahl was the only Colorado player who registered a hit in this contest, as the Rockies went 3-for-30 in the season opener. The 26-year-old should remain as the leadoff hitter moving forward -- at least against righties -- after posting a .353 on-base percentage in 2019.

The outfielder is projected to serve as an everyday player for the Rockies, though he'll likely slot lower in the lineup against left-handed pitching.
