David Dahl News
Free-agent outfielder David Dahl agreed to a minor-league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, pending a physical. Dahl played in only four games at the major-league level in 2023 with the San Diego Padres before inking a minors pact with the Los Angeles Dodgers in June. The 29-year-old former first-round pick played in 54 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City and slashed .282/.354/.493 with an .847 OPS, eight home runs, 39 RBI and 33 runs scored over 237 plate appearances. Dahl was an All-Star with the Colorado Rockies in 2019 when he hit .302 with 15 home runs, but he only played in 100 games that season and couldn't capitalize on his talent due to injuries. In six major-league seasons, Dahl has only played in 331 games.
The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder David Dahl to a minor-league deal on Tuesday, and he will make his debut for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday. Dahl stays in the National League West after the San Diego Padres designated him for assignment two weeks ago. He is a career .271/.317/.463 hitter over 331 games in the big leagues, but he has a tough time staying healthy and has slashed .199/.236/.303 in 91 games (328 plate appearances) with the Colorado Rockies, Texas Rangers and Padres in the last three seasons. At Triple-A El Paso this year, the 29-year-old left-hander was hitting .265 (18-for-68) with five doubles, a homer and 10 RBI in 17 games. He'll represent outfield depth in LA.
The San Diego Padres activated outfielder David Dahl (quadriceps) from the 10-day injured list on Thursday and then optioned him to Triple-A El Paso. Dahl will most likely be back on the big-league roster at some point in 2023 if injuries strike, but for now he'll bide his time on the farm. The 29-year-old oft-injured outfielder has played in just four games for the Friars so far this season, going 1-for-9 with a solo home run and two strikeouts. He's played in only five games for El Paso, going 7-for-26 (.269) with a double, home run, four RBI and four runs scored. Dahl remains well off the fantasy radar for now as organizational outfield depth in San Diego.
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.
