Original Post – 6:41 PM

The Colorado Rockies minor league outfielder, David Dahl, who is #2 on their top prospect list, was injured during Thursday’s New Britain Rock Cats/Altoona Curve game.

According to MiLB.com, Dahl was sent to the hospital because of a possible concussion, broken rib and ruptured spleen after a collision in the outfield.

MiLB.com replays how the play unfolded:

[In the top of the sixth] Curve right fielder Stetson Allie hit a shallow fly ball to center field. Dahl rushed in from center with shortstop Trevor Story and second baseman Juan Ciriaco closing in from the infield. Story turned off before the ball fell, but Ciriaco continued his path, eventually hitting his knee into Dahl’s head and torso area.

Before the injury the Rock Cats’ center fielder was 2 for 3 on Thursday, and during the season he was batting .269, with seven doubles, three home runs, 16 RBI in 182 at bats.

We hope David Dahl is doing well and wish him a speedy recovery.
