According to the Rockies PR team on Twitter, the Colorado Rockies are making another roster move as a result of an injury.
In a corresponding move, the Rockies have called up outfielder Yonathan Daza from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Dahl, who just turned 25 last week, has been hampered by numerous injuries throughout his young career so this is yet another.

He was one of only a few hot bats in the Rockies lineup to start the season as he was hitting .343/.385/.629 with two home runs and six RBI and an OPS+ of 154 in 10 games. Last season, in 77 games at the major league level, he hit .273/.325/.534 with an OPS+ of 113.
Daza, 25, will be making his major league debut in the coming days. He just made his Triple-A debut this season as he has only been in 4 games at the Triple-A level. In those games, he is hitting .278/.350/.333 with one RBI.
In 2018, Daza spent the entirety of his season in Double-A Hartford. In only 54 games there, he hit .306 with 4 home runs and 29 RBI. He also had an on-base percentage of .330 and a slugging percentage of .461.
What it means for the Rockies
Dahl was one of only a few offensive players that have started out the season well for the 3-8 Rockies. Currently, they are tied for last place in the NL West with the San Francisco Giants.
