The wait is over for former first-round pick David Dahl, who was poised to make his big league debut Monday night with the Colorado Rockies. Colorado selected Dahl's contract from Triple-A Albuquerque earlier Monday. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder was in the starting lineup, batting sixth and in left field in the opener of a three-game series against the Orioles.
Trevor Story looked up to Troy Tulowitzki as he climbed through the Colorado Rockies' minor leagues. Story hit two home runs to set an NL rookie record for shortstops and the Rockies beat the Atlanta Braves 8-4 on Saturday night. Story had four hits including his 25th and 26th homers to pass his Tulowitzki, who had 24 for the Rockies in 2007.
