Rangers' David Dahl: Sitting out Sunday
Dahl is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.Dahl sat out Friday's 3-0 loss to the Padres in the series opener while battling an illness, but he checked back into the starting nine for Saturday's 7-4 loss, going hitless in three at-bats. The outfielder isn't believed to have suffered a setback with his health coming out of the contest, as manager Chris Woodward may just have wanted to keep the lefty-hitting Dahl on the bench with southpaw Adrian Morejon on the mound for San Diego. Eli White will cover left field in Dahl's stead Sunday.
Rangers' David Dahl: Delivers immediately for new team
Dahl went 3-for-5 with a double, a walk and two runs scored in Thursday's 14-10 loss to Kansas City.Dahl had an impressive debut for his new team. It doesn't hurt that he's batting second in front of the slugging Joey Gallo, so Dahl could see good pitches to hit if that arrangement continues. That, and the motivation after being non-tendered by the Rockies during the offseason, could make him a bounce-back candidate.
