Dodgers' David Dahl: Gets MiLB deal from Dodgers
Dahl signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Tuesday, Alex Freedman of the Oklahoma City Dodgers reports.
Dahl was designated for assignment by the Padres and later elected free agency earlier in June, and he will now join the Dodgers' farm system. The 29-year-old outfielder holds a .722 OPS at the Triple-A level this season and would have to be added to the 40-man roster before making another appearance in the majors.... See More ... See Less
David Dahl: Elects free agency
Dahl was released by the Padres on Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Dahl elected to become a free agent after being designated for assignment earlier this week. The oft-injured 29-year-old outfielder drew only nine major-league plate appearances during his stay in the Padres organization and recorded just one hit.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: DFA'd by Friars
The Padres designated Dahl for assignment Tuesday.
With Adrian Morejon (elbow) returning from the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Dahl will become the Padres' roster casualty. The 29-year-old outfielder is slashing .266/.347/.375 across 72 plate appearances in Triple-A this season and went 1-for-9 during a brief MLB stint at the beginning of the year.... See More ...

Padres' David Dahl: Activated and optioned
Dahl was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A El Paso by the Padres on Thursday.
Dahl is recovered from his quad injury but will remain in El Paso for now and hope for a call-up. The 29-year-old is 1-for-9 at the plate during his short time with the Padres this season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: Beginning rehab assignment
Dahl (quadriceps) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A El Paso on Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Dahl has been on the injured list for just over a month due to a right quadriceps strain, but he's been cleared to return to game action at the minor-league level. Given the length of his absence, it wouldn't be surprising to see Dahl appear in multiple games with the Triple-A club before rejoining the Padres.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: Heads to injured list
The Padres placed Dahl on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right quadriceps strain.
Dahl had been unavailable because of the quad strain over the past few games. The Padres will stash him on the IL for at least the next week, replacing Dahl on the 26-man active roster with utility man Brandon Dixon, who was called up from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move. Rougned Odor, Jose Azocar and Dixon will be the main candidates to pick up time in right field in place of Dahl until Fernando Tatis (suspension) is eligible to make his season debut April 20....

Padres' David Dahl: Dealing with quad injury
Padres manager Bob Melvin told reporters before Saturday's game against Atlanta that Dahl is dealing with an upper quad injury, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
As Cassavell notes in his report, this helps explain why right field has essentially become a platoon between Rougned Odor and Jose Azocar over the past few games. The outfielder could be available off the bench in the coming days, but it's also possible Dahl's unavailability could lead to a stint on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: Not in lineup Thursday
Dahl is not in the Padres' lineup Thursday at Atlanta.
Rougned Odor will cover right field and bat eighth against right-handed starter Spencer Strider. Jose Azocar is also sitting.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: Gets start in right field Tuesday
Dahl is starting in right field and batting eighth for the Padres on Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.
Dahl hit a pinch-hit, game-tying solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Monday to help the Padres to a 5-4 win over Arizona, and he'll be rewarded with a start in Tuesday's matinee versus the Diamondbacks and right-hander Zac Gallen. Jose Azocar and Rougned Odor are on the bench for this one.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: Slugs clutch homer Monday
Dahl hit a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning of Monday's 5-4 win over Arizona.
Rougned Odor started in right field for the Padres and was later replaced on defense by Jose Azocar. When Azocar's turn to bat came up in the ninth, manager Bob Melvin opted to go to Dahl, who came through with the game-tying bomb. It was the veteran's first hit as a Padre -- he went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts in his previous two contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: Sitting versus lefty
Dahl is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.
While Fernando Tatis (suspension) completes a 20-game ban to begin the season and while Adam Engel (hamstring) is on the shelf, Dahl looks like he may occupy the strong side of a platoon in right field. With southpaw Austin Gomber twirling for the Rockies on Sunday, the lefty-hitting Dahl will cede his spot to the righty-hitting Jose Azocar.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: Will begin season with Padres
Dahl was told he'd made the Padres' Opening Day roster on Wednesday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
The Padres have yet to release their official roster for Opening Day, but the 28-year-old lefty will be featured among their outfielders when they do. Dahl had himself a solid spring, slashing .288/.311/.458 and driving in 10 RBI through 61 plate appearances. He will likely come off the bench and primarily face right-handed pitching....

Padres' David Dahl: Contract selected by SD
Dahl had his contract selected by the Padres on Thursday.
Dahl was informed Wednesday that he had made the Padres' Opening Day roster, and now it's official. It's a talent-filled depth chart, but the 28-year-old former top prospect might get semi-regular starts in the outfield as Fernando Tatis Jr. serves out the remainder of his PED suspension....

Padres' David Dahl: Likely to make Opening Day roster
Dahl appears to be in line for a spot on the Padres' Opening Day roster, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Dahl signed a minor-league contract with San Diego in December and was given the opportunity to compete for a roster spot in spring training. He did well with the opportunity, posting a .288/.311/.458 slash line with one home run, five doubles, a triple, eight runs and 10 RBI. Though his placement on the 40-man roster has yet to be made official, it appears likely that Dahl will break camp with the big club, with Brandon Dixon and Tim Lopes sent to minor-league camp Sunday. Dahl was a solid major-league player in his first three seasons with Colorado, but he's been unable to do much since 2019 and didn't play in the big leagues at all last season. Dahl figures to work primarily as a bench bat and reserve outfielder during the coming campaign.... See More ... See Less
Padres' David Dahl: Gets opportunity with San Diego
Dahl signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Monday.
Though he's still just 28 years old, Dahl is well removed from his days as a top-flight prospect in the Rockies system and is now simply trying to stick around in affiliated ball. Dahl has mostly avoided the significant injuries that hampered his development early in his big-league career, but he hasn't surfaced in the majors since the 2021 campaign, when he posted a .569 OPS and 26.8 percent strikeout rate over 63 games in the majors. He split time with the Brewers' and Nationals' Triple-A affiliates in 2022, slashing .279/.345/.442 with 10 home runs and four stolen bases across 359 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
David Dahl: Heads to free agency
Dahl exercised the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Nationals on Monday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Dahl will choose to become a free agent again since a promotion to the majors wasn't imminent after he joined the Nationals organization in July. Over his 18 games with Triple-A Rochester, the outfielder slashed .224/.304/.343 with one home run.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' David Dahl: Inks MiLB deal with Nationals
Dahl signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Dahl was released July 11 by Milwaukee after slashing .294/.357/.468 with nine homers, 44 runs, 41 RBI and three stolen bases in 67 games at Triple-A Nashville to begin the 2022 season. The 28-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since August of 2021 but will likely be an option to join the Nationals, who have gotten little production from the non-Juan Soto members of their outfield....
