Rockies OF prospect David Dahl makes return from scary play


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/16/2015) After missing more than a month following a nasty collision in the outfield, Rockies outfield prospect David Dahl has returned to the field. Dahl, who was playing with Double-A New Britain at the time of the collision, resumed playing with Class A Boise on July 6. 

He has been struggling however, batting .125 (3 for 24) with nine strikeouts in six games. He had posted a .269 average in 44 games at Double-A. 

The Rockies selected Dahl with their first-round pick (10th overall) in 2012. He wound up having his spleen removed as a result of the collision at the end of May. 


Rockies' David Dahl opts to have spleen removed for quicker return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2015) Rockies outfield prospect David Dahl, who was involved in a violent on-field collision Thursday while playing for Double-A New Britain, has elected to have his spleen removed, his agents announced on Twitter on Sunday night. Dahl had surgery last week to repair a lacerated spleen.

His agents at Sosnick Cobbe & Karon said having his spleen removed will allow him to return this season instead of next year. However, they also mentioned "it brings other challenges" as well.

Dahl was hurt in Thursday's game when he was chasing down a fly ball in center field. Shortstop Trevor Story and second baseman Juan Ciriaco also went after the play, but while Story pulled up, Ciriaco did not. He struck Dahl in the head and torso area with his knee, per MiLB.com. Dahl stayed on the ground following the collision, but walked off under his own power.

The 2012 first-round pick is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 22) and MLB.com (No. 59).


Rockies OF prospect David Dahl (spleen) out indefinitely


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Rockies outfield prospect David Dahl is sidelined indefinitely after sustaining a spleen injury during an on-field collision Thursday, the team announced Friday. 

Rockies senior director of player development Zach Wilson said Dahl, who is playing for Double-A New Britain, underwent surgery to repair his spleen. However, he did not suffer any bone fractures and did not suffer a concussion.

"There is no timetable on David's return," Wilson said in a press release. "The organization is in contact with David and his family. They are in our thoughts as we wish him the best."

According to MiLB.com, Dahl rushed in from center field in the sixth inning of Thursday's game against Altoona to field a fly ball. Shortstop Trevor Story and second baseman Juan Ciriaco also chased the play. Story turned off before the ball fell, but Ciriaco continued his path, leaping to avoid Dahl but instead striking the outfielder's head and torso area with his knee. Dahl stayed on the ground following the collision, but walked off under his own power.

The 2012 first-round pick has a .269/.296/.379/.675 slash line in 44 games. He is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 22) and MLB.com (No. 59).


Report: Rockies prospect David Dahl (spleen) will miss rest of season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) After undergoing emergency surgery to save his lacerated spleen, Rockies prospect David Dahl will miss the remainder of the season, reports Yahoo Sports.

Rockies prospect David Dahl suffers injuries in on-field collision


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Rockies outfield prospect David Dahl sustained multiple injuries in an on-field collision Thursday, reports MLB.com. Dahl has a likely concussion, broken rib and he may need his spleen removed.

"They're trying to save the spleen," Dahl's father, Mike Dahl said. "There was a collision between him and the second baseman, and he took a knee to the spleen. They're just trying to save it now. He got hit in the face, the nose, the spleen, a bunch of different places, but that's the main thing right now. He probably has a minor concussion, I would imagine, because he doesn't remember much about what happened. No broken bones or nothing -- all the CT scans were negative."

Dahl started Thursday's game for Double-A New Britain. He went 2 for 3 with two runs and one strikeout before leaving the game in the sixth inning.

The 2012 first-round pick entered play Thursday with a .263/.290/.374/.665 slash line in 43 games. He is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 22) and MLB.com (No. 59).


David Dahl suffers hamstring injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2013) Rockies outfield prospect David Dahl sustained a hamstring injury during Tuesday's game for Class A Asheville, according to The Denver Post.

David Dahl demoted in minors


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2013) Rockies prospect David Dahl was demoted from Class A Asheville to extended spring training on Saturday.

The move was reportedly a disciplinary one.

“He made some decisions that made us reconsider where he should begin the season. It had nothing to do with his play in Asheville,” Rockies senior director of player development Jeff Bridich said.

Dahl batted .379 with nine homers, 57 RBI and 12 stolen bases in his first season of pro ball.


Rockies encouraged with Dahl


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2013) MLB.com reports the Rockies are unsure of where 2012 first-round pick David Dahl will begin the 2013 season, but one thing is for sure -- he isn't headed back to rookie ball after he tore up the Pioneer League last season to the tune of a .379 average, .423 on-base percentage, .625 slugging percentage and 1.048 OPS in 67 games. "I think we knew what we had, and I think we knew he was going to do well at that level," Rockies senior director of player development Jeff Bridich said. "You could say there's some on-field confidence, some on-field maturity there that we saw out of a young kid that's really encouraging."
