The Rockies play in baseball's biggest outfield at Coors Field. Alabama prep outfielder David Dahl should have the speed to feel at home.
The Rockies drafted Dahl with the 10th overall pick; he ranks 12th on the BA 500. The Rockies haven't taken a prep outfielder this high since 1998, when they took Choo Freeman.
Dahl earns comparisons to players from Colby Rasmus to Andy Van Slyke for his tools, which include above-average hitting ability, 60 speed on the 20-80 scale and a cannon throwing arm. Scouts dinged the Birmingham, Ala., prep for his baseball motor and his power, which requires some projection, but some scouts expect him to hit for above-average power eventually, and he has good baseball instincts.
