David Dahl homers in first rehab appearance for Albuquerque Isotopes

New, 38 comments

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from July 19, 2018.

It was a day of lopsided results within the Colorado Rockies’ farm system on Thursday. Among the not-so-good results, the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats lost 10-0, the Short-Season A Boise Hawks lost 17-2, and the Low-A Asheville Tourists were no hit in a 5-1 loss. On the better side of things, the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes took home a 16-1 win, aided in part by a David Dahl home run in the first game of his rehab assignment.

Though he played only two innings and had just one plate appearance as he eases his way back into game action, Dahl made the most of it by taking former Rockie Jordan Lyles deep in that one plate appearance. The 24-year-old lefty is hitting .275/.309/.484 (95 wRC+) in 97 plate appearances for the Rockies this season, and could theoretically provide the Rockies with a big boost down the stretch if he’s given the opportunity to play. Whether he will, however, remains to be seen. With Carlos Gonzalez hitting .312/.370/.532 (124 wRC+) and Gerardo Parra hitting .323/.360/.435 (100 wRC+) since Dahl’s last last start on May 27th, there’s a high likelihood he’ll be relegated to a bench player or Triple-A depth when he’s fully healthy. If he can continue to hit home runs, however, he may force his way into the Rockies’ lineup.
