Question Two – Can David Dahl return to the Rockies lineup and make an impact after an injury-laden 2018?
My Thoughts: I would be lying if I said I did not think David Dahl is a fantastic player. His defense is sharp in all three outfield spots and his bat is electric and heavily oriented to make contact before swinging for the fences.
That being said, last year was a mess for the young outfielder mostly due to a rib injury. The ailment caused Dahl to get less than 100 at-bats in the entire season and all of them were at the Triple-A level.
The Rockies made it clear that Dahl will open the season in Triple-A for the second year in a row and that puts a serious damper on his upside for 2018 but hope, in my opinion, should not be lost.
Noah Yinling- No, at least not this season. He’ll start in Triple-A and depending on the health and performance of the Rockies outfield, I think that he may not see much time in the outfield for the team this season. However, next season, in my opinion, will be his year to take over in the outfield and show whether or not he will be an impact player.
