The Rockies have lost their hottest hitter for a little while.
David Dahl, who leads Colorado in batting average (.343), on-base percentage (.385) and slugging percentage (.629) through 11 games, has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a left-side core injury, the team announced Tuesday.
The Rockies announced today that they have recalled outfielder Yonathan Daza from Triple-A Albuquerque and have placed outfielder David Dahl on the 10-day injured list with a left-side core injury.
Dahl has two home runs and six RBIs with four runs scored through 10 games played this year.

He has dealt with a lot of injuries throughout his young career, suffering a hamstring problem in 2013, a lacerated spleen in 2015 and rib and back injuries that cost him the entire 2017 year.
He also broke his foot, which cost him two months in 2018.
Since being drafted in the first round in 2012, Dahl has played more than 100 games in a season just once.
Colorado is off to a disappointing start with a 3-8 record, but some of that has to do with losing Daniel Murphy to a hand injury just two games into the year.
Murphy was supposed to be a vital part of the lineup after the team decided not to re-sign DJ LeMahieu and losing him certainly hurt.
Now with Dahl out, Trevor Story (.231) and Ian Desmond (.135) will have to pick up their play.
