2012 – David Dahl OF (10th overall) Oak Mountain High School (Alabama)

The Rockies showed faith in Dahl, taking him with the 10th overall pick straight out of high school. He started his professional career in rookie league with the Grand Junction Rockies where he hit .379 with nine home runs and 57 RBIs. Prior to the 2013 season, he was ranked the second-best prospect in the Rockies’ system. His sweet-swinging lefty bat would be nice to see in the Rockies’ lineup soon.

Numbers with Rockies: (minor league numbers) .325, 23 HR, 119 RBIs, .534 SLG

 Where Are They Now? Dahl split time last season between Single-A and High-A. Look for him to continue working his way through the system.

Grade: C. Hard to grade him since he hasn’t made it to the upper levels of the minor leagues yet. He hits for a high average and is a good athlete. We will get a better idea what this kid is made of over the next year or two.
