Colorado Rockies OF David Dahl (spleen) is back on the field in spring training after having his spleen removed last May. He'll most likely start the year with Class AAA Albuquerque, but there's a good chance he'll make his major league debut at some point in 2016.
Fantasy Tip: Dahl put up a slash line of .278/.304/.417 in 302 plate appearances for Class AA New Britain last year. He has the ability to develop plus power at a hitter's paradise in Coors Field, and he also displays nice speed. Keep him on your radar in dynasty/keeper leagues for now.

Colorado Rockies OF David Dahl (spleen) will have surgery to remove his spleen Monday, June 1, four days after being involved in a serious collision while playing at Class AA. He is hoping to return in four to six weeks after initially fearing he would miss the rest of the season. The recovery time is similar to that of having an appendix removed. Dahl was hitting .269 with a .675 OPS in 44 games for New Britain.
Fantasy Tip: Dahl, the team's No. 2 prospect per MLB.com, could find it hard to earn a promotion to the major leagues after suffering this serious injury. As a lefty with power to all fields, he'll be especially intriguing playing home games at Coors Field. For now, consider him a stash option in deep dynasty and keeper leagues.
