Scouting Report

This is a draft class loaded with left-handed bats, and Dahl is in that top group. He's another one of those sweet swinging lefties, as he stays extremely compact and smooth. He goes to left field well and puts on an impressive display in batting practice. He has a highly professional approach and stays very balanced on off-speed pitches. Dahl's power coupled with his plus throwing arm give him the ideal skillset to be a big league right fielder.
