2. David Dahl
As only the prospect on our list who is currently logging time on Blake Street, David Dahl looks poised to stay in the big leagues. As the 10th-overall pick in the 2012 draft, Dahl has had some big expectations following him around his entire a career. His career has featured a lot of missed time due to injury, including a scary outfield collision that cost Dahl a spleen.
In 2016, Dahl has avoided injury and posted the best power numbers of his career. Starting the season in Double-A, Dahl has posted a .278 average with 13 home runs and 16 stolen bases. His Double-A performance earned Dahl a promotion to Albuquerque where he lasted only 16 games after hitting .484 and five home runs. Based on these numbers he earned himself an immediate call-up to Colorado where he has not disappointed.
