Colorado is expected to add outfielder David Dahl to the Boise Hawks’ roster in the next several days, the Hawks announced Saturday as they began a five-game series in Spokane.
Baseball America rated Dahl the No. 22 prospect in minor league baseball and the top one in the Rockies’ organization entering this season after he hit .299 with 14 home runs and 21 stolen bases in 119 games last season between Low-A Asheville and High-A Modesto.
He began 2015 with Double-A New Britain before colliding with a teammate May 28 while running down a fly ball, lacerating his spleen. The 10th overall pick in 2012 underwent surgery to have his spleen removed four days later and has not play in an organized game since.
HAWKS FALL ON WALK-OFF FIELDER’S CHOICE: Spokane’s Dylan Moore beat out a potential inning-ending, extra-inning-forcing double play for a walk-off grounder that lifted the Indians to an 8-7 victory over Boise.
