RotoWire News: Dahl (ribs) is increasing his upper-body workouts and could return to swinging in a couple of weeks, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. (3/25/2017)
Injury: Ribs, Day-to-Day
Profiles:  2017  (Click Year to Expand / Close)
Profile: Dahl has the skill to be an impact hitter at the big league level. The added benefit of the Colorado effect could make him a star. A naturally-gifted hitter, the 22-year-old outfielder has a chance to be a perennial .300 hitter but he gets too overanxious at times, which leads to low walk rates and high strikeout rates. When he plays under control, he’s a tough out and he has the raw power to be a 20+ home run hitter. He also has enough speed and base-running intelligence to develop into a 20-20 threat during his prime years. Dahl appeared in just 63 big league games in 2016 but it likely was enough to convince the Rockies to pencil him into the everyday lineup in 2017 at the expense of veteran Gerardo Parra. Although he’s relatively inexperienced as a pro, the left-handed hitter has performed well against southpaws and shouldn’t be in danger of being platooned. The Rockies should field a pretty strong lineup in 2017 so Dahl should have the opportunity to score and drive in plenty of runs regardless of where he hits in the lineup. He’s starting to make a name for himself so 2017 might be the last time you’ll be able to nab him in the middle rounds of your draft. If you have a keeper league, you’ll want him (you can thank me later). (Marc Hulet)

The Quick Opinion: This could very well be the year that Dahl bursts onto the MLB landscape in a big way. After a solid rookie campaign (and coming off of a tough injury in 2015), this young outfielder is primed to develop into a .300-20-20 (AVG-HR-SB) threat.
