It was clear from the beginning of the 2018 campaign that the Colorado Rockies were unsure what they were going to get out of their promising young outfield prospects.

This is at least part of why they brought back Carlos Gonzalez on a one-year deal.

And whether it be Raimel Tapia’s rough edges or David Dahl’s history with injuries, the club even found themselves in need of another outfield bat nearing the end of the season, picking up Matt Holliday it was has turned out to be a sneaky good move in the National League race.

But as Holliday rightfully gobbles up opportunities, Dahl has emerged once more, returning from yet another injury that cost him valuable time and taking his spot as a regular in the lineup.

For many, Dahl should have become a fixture much sooner, but whatever your feelings on the timing, he is getting his chances now and he is making the most of them.
