2018 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT WATCH: DAVID DAHL BACK TO TEASE US AGAIN

Yeah this guy again.  For the better part of the last two seasons, Colorado Rockies outfield prospect has been front-and-center as a guy who caught unending sleeper hype based on some interesting power/speed ability but more so for the Colorado backdrop. It was just last spring where Dahl was a very popular target of the sleeper hounds in fantasy baseball drafts but all those owners got for their trouble was not a single major league at-bat due to unending injury problems.  The virtual wipeout year put Dahl way off the radar screen with regards to 2018 fantasy baseball but his name was still stored away for times like Sunday when he was promoted to take the spot of injured outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.  Dahl just came back from a minor league DL stint himself and his offensive numbers prior to that were not overly impressive (.231, 0 home runs, 1 steal in 26 at-bats) but he also is the same guy who at the age of 22 posted a 7/5/.315 line with the Rockies in 2016.  At the very least, Dahl should be added where available to see if he can make good on his promise and at 24, he still carries a few years of upside before the prime stage arrives.  Give it another chance.
