David Dahl News
The Texas Rangers placed outfielder David Dahl (rib) on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday. Dahl is dealing with a left rib cage contusion. He suffered the injury in Tuesday's game when he collided with the outfield wall as he was attempting to track down a fly ball off the bat of Jared Walsh. The Rangers called up outfielder Jason Martin to replace Dahl on the roster. There has been some speculation that Dahl may have fractured his rib, but there has been no confirmation of that speculation yet. If there's no fracture, he may only miss the minimum 10 days, but a fracture would result in an extended absence.
Texas Rangers outfielder David Dahl (rib) could be dealing with a somewhat serious injury. Dahl was held out of Wednesday's lineup after crashing into the wall during Tuesday's game, with manager Chris Woodward saying he was dealing with soreness. Woodward said there's now some concern that the veteran outfielder is dealing with a fractured rib, which would require an extended stint on the injured list. Dahl will likely be sent for more tests to determine the severity of his injury, as the details have not been confirmed yet. Stay tuned for more updates on the status of the 27-year-old.
Texas Rangers outfielder David Dahl (rib) was removed from Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Angels after suffering a rib cage injury. Dahl collided with the outfield wall in the first inning of the game. He went on to play the bulk of the game before being removed in the seventh inning. Dahl is set to be reevaluated on Wednesday and should be considered day-to-day at this point. Through 42 games this year, Dahl is slashing .208/.242/.340 with four home runs, 12 RBI and 16 runs.
Texas Rangers outfielder David Dahl has become a forgotten man in fantasy, but a fresh start with a new team could prove helpful to the former top prospect. This, of course, is if he can stay on the field. Dahl's promising, young career has been ravaged by a myriad of injuries, missing at least a month of every season from 2017-20. In fact, Dahl's career-high for games played is only 100 back in his breakout 2019 season where he flashed the potential that made him the 10th-overall pick. Dahl put up a .302/.353/.524 slash line with 15 homers and 67 runs scored in 413 plate appearances before his season was cut short with an ankle injury. Further complicating matters is his transition from Colorado to Texas. Coors Field is the most hitter-friendly venue in the Majors and played a role in his strong numbers. As a result, Dahl's .358 career-BABIP is sure to regress making him a risky fantasy option. Dahl shouldn't be drafted in standard-size mixed leagues but he has value in deeper formats as the everyday left or center fielder for Texas. Keep an eye on Dahl this Spring, if he's healthy he would be a good value in fantasy with an average draft position around 330.
