Dalbec went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 7-1 over the Orioles. Dalbec's hot bat certainly hasn't cooled off. The first baseman launched his fifth home run over the last eight games and ninth over the last 18. Dalbec started 12 of the last 14 contests, so it looks like the plan for him to platoon at first base has been scrapped for now.
Dalbec went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 8-4 triumph over Seattle. Dalbec knotted the game at 2-2 with his sixth-inning shot off Seattle reliever Anthony Misiewicz, but he wasn't productive in his other at-bats and was lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth. The 26-year-old has flashed promising power in his second season with four home runs over his last six games and 22 on the season.
Dalbec isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Seattle, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Dalbec will take a seat for the series opener after racking up a pair of extra-base hits Sunday afternoon against the White Sox. Kyle Schwarber shifts to first base as a result.
Dalbec went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and a second run scored in Friday's 4-3 loss to the White Sox. Dalbec continued an impressive run of hitting that includes 12 extra-base hits (seven HR) over 16 games. During that stretch, he's slashed .353/.421/.882 over 57 plate appearances. The power potential flashed in 2020 has finally presented itself this season. Dalbec has a .247 ISO, ranking 27th among players with at least 350 plate appearances.
Dalbec went 2-for-2 with a pair of two-run home runs in Tuesday's 12-7 loss to Tampa Bay. The 26-year-old spelled Rafael Devers at third base, and Dalbec delivered with homers in the eighth and ninth innings as Boston tried to come back from a significant deficit. Dalbec recorded his first 20-homer season in the process, and he's added 69 RBI, 41 runs scored and a stolen base while slashing .244/.302/.483 in 391 plate appearances. Going forward, Dalbec is expected to see the short side of a platoon with Kyle Schwarber at first base.
