The Rockies' 2012 first-round pick is now hitting .380 with 13 doubles, eight triples, five homers and 39 RBI in 45 games. For fun, triple those numbers to see what Dahl would do over the course of a longer season. Of course, that doesn't often extrapolate well but you can clearly see that Dahl is producing at an elite level.
In the second half of the season he's hitting .436. Josh Rutledge's offense was also dominant in the second half of 2011 at High-A Modesto and it was a preview of his rapid rise this season (Tulsa-to-Denver). Yes, Dahl's second half is only 12 games to this point while Rutledge did it for much longer but you can see the Alabama native's undeniable and special productivity.
Second baseman Matt Wessinger was a 2012 draft pick out of St. Johns' University that I liked. He has had defensive troubles and hasn't hit as well as expected - yet - but with four hits (and two stolen bases) yesterday for Grand Junction he is now hitting .304 and has 14 steals. He's hitting .371 in August.
He hits right-handed pitching very well (.361) but lefties carve him up (.143), which is odd considering Wessinger is a righthanded hitter.
The right-handed pitcher from Texas Tech, another 2012 draft pick, has a 2.72 ERA in 46 1/3 innings.
He has allowed only one homer, has a 44/8 K/BB rate and opponents are hitting but .218 against him.
All of those are strong numbers. He had two poor starts at the end of July and beginning of August but outside of those, he's looked impressive. Follow him.
