The latest update on David Dahl is that he’ll be joining the Rockies in San Francisco to have his rib reevaluated. He’s currently throwing and running, but needs to be cleared before being allowed to swing a bat. Rib injuries can be difficult to heal, but hopefully he’ll finally get a green light to resume all baseball activities soon.
There’s also an update about Jairo Diaz who had his first rehab appearance on Monday. He still needs to build up his arm to be able to handle back-to-back appearances before being considered to join the Rockies dominant pen
Our friends over at the Rox Pile did a great job looking at the Jeff Bridich’s record since becoming GM. Bridich has finally succeeded in building a team that has pitching depth in both the bullpen and also in the rotation. Everywhere you look in the Rockies organization there are young arms throwing hard and able to get batters out no matter where they’re pitching at.

When the Rockies travel to San Francisco this weekend for a four game series, they won’t have to face one of the Giants best players. Posey exhibited some concussion symptoms after getting hit in the head by a pitch on Monday and was placed on the 7-day concussion DL. For a team that is already struggling to find offense because of it’s “interesting” outfield situation, this is a tough blow.
