Colorado Rockies outfielder David Dahl begins a rehab assignment in Lancaster

Colorado Rockies prospect report and game results from July 12, 2017.

Colorado Rockies fans received a pleasant surprise on Wednesday night, when outfielder David Dahl began a rehab assignment with the High-A Lancaster JetHawks. The 23-year-old lefty has been out all season after suffering a stress reaction in his rib during spring training. After hitting .315/.359/.500 across 237 plate appearances in 2016, he would be a welcome addition to a Rockies lineup in desperate need of some punch.

Dahl played five innings in left field and went 1-for-3 at the plate, but at this point his simply being able to play without pain is the most important thing. From here, it will still probably be a relatively slow process. The maximum amount of time a big leaguer can spend on a rehab assignment is 20 days, but with Dahl having minor league options remaining the Rockies could easily extend that time if needed. At any rate, this represents a significant step forward for someone the Rockies were expecting to be a significant contributor all season long.

Elsewhere on the farm, a tip of the cap to Triple-A Albuquerque’s Noel Cuevas and Double-A Hartford’s Ashley Graeter, Drew Weeks, and Shane Broyles, who each played in their league’s All-Star game on Wednesday. In High-A Lancaster, No. 11 PuRP Peter Lambert tossed six scoreless innings without walking a batter to improve his strikeout-to-walk ratio to an impressive 104-to-25. It was also a big day for some of 2017’s late round draft picks. In Short-Season A Boise, 22nd round pick Daniel Jipping had three hits and finished a double short of the cycle, and in Rookie league Grand Junction 20th rounder Casey Golden tripled, homered twice, and drove in six.
