  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Strikeouts piling up

    Dalbec went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Friday's 3-0 win over Baltimore.

    Dalbec continues to fill a spot in the lineup at first base with Triston Casas (shoulder) done for the season. Dalbec hit safely in the first five games after being called up from Triple-A Worcester, but he's gone the other the way since. The corner infielder is 1-for-16 with 10 strikeouts over his last five contests.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Cranks first homer of campaign

    Dalbec went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

    Dalbec's homer, a 427-foot blast off Jon Gray in the second inning, was his first with the Red Sox in nearly a full calendar year. The 28-year-old Dalbec has been swinging the bat well since he was recalled from Triple-A on Saturday, going 6-for-14 with three extra-base hits in four games. He should continue to see fairly regular time at first base down the stretch, with Triston Casas (shoulder) likely out for the year.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Makes second straight start

    Dalbec started at first base and went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Monday's 4-2 win over Texas.

    Dalbec made a second consecutive start at first base in place of the injured Triston Casas (shoulder), who is likely done for the season, per Alex Speier of the Boston Globe. Dalbec is 3-for-8 in two games since being called up following Casas' placement on the injured list.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Starts at first base

    Dalbec started at first base and went 1-for-3 in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Toronto.

    Dalbec was summoned from Triple-A Worcester after Boston placed Triston Casas (shoulder) on the injured list. Dalbec mashed for the WooSox, slugging .557 with 33 home runs and 80 RBI over 114 games. Hitting Triple-A pitching, however, has never been the issue. The 28-year-old maintains a .232/.298/.452 slash line over 915 plate appearances in the majors. While Dalbec could get regular work in the final weeks of the season, he does not have a path to a regular gig in 2024.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Back in big leagues

    Dalbec was recalled from Triple-A Worcester by the Red Sox on Saturday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Dalbec hit a lopsided .232/.298/.456 over his first three big-league seasons, good for a league-average 100 wRC+. He's only received 14 plate appearances at the MLB level this season, striking out in eight of them. He owns a .938 OPS and 33 homers for Triple-A Worcester, but he still struck out 34.3 percent of the time, so it's unlikely his big-league numbers will be significantly better going forward. He could make a handful of starts down the stretch in the absence of Triston Casas (shoulder), though the Red Sox could also play Justin Turner at first base.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Back in action at Triple-A

    Dalbec (wrist) has returned to action for Triple-A Worcester.

    Dalbec was hit by a pitch on his left wrist in late June and missed some time. The infielder returned to action July 5 and is 13-for-40 with three home runs and nine RBI over 10 games. That includes Wednesday's win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in which he started a 5-4-3 triple play.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Hurts wrist, not playing

    Dalbec was injured after being hit by a pitch in the area of his left hand/wrist last Thursday while playing for Triple-A Worcester, Chris Cotillo of reports.

    Dalbec was hit by the pitch in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader, then homered in the second game before the area began to swell. He has missed the five games since. WooSox manager Chad Tracy provided an update Tuesday to Katie Morrison-O'Day of, saying X-rays came back clean and the team is waiting on CT scan results. The manager is hopeful Dalbec will return this week.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Sent back to Worcester

    Boston optioned Dalbec to Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Dalbec drew only one plate appearance during this latest brief stint with the Red Sox and has gone 2-for-12 with eight strikeouts in 10 major-league games this year. Alex Verdugo was activated from the bereavement list in a corresponding roster move.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Limited opportunity in Boston

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Friday that Dalbec does not have an obvious path to regular at-bats in Boston, Christopher Smith of reports. "Obviously where we're at roster-wise, he needs to be patient," Cora said.

    Dalbec was called up from Triple-A Worcester on Friday after the team placed Pablo Reyes (abdomen) on the injured list. The Red Sox plan to use Dalbec mainly at corner infield, but first and third base are manned by Triston Casas and Rafael Devers, respectively. Dalbec has played some shortstop -- the most obvious path to at-bats given the team's current roster -- but the Red Sox will try to stay away from him there.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Red Sox recalled Dalbec from Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    With Pablo Reyes (abdomen) headed to the injured list, Dalbec will come up from the minors to fill Reyes' roster spot. He has been outstanding at Triple-A this season, slashing .296/.414/.638 with 18 homers and 43 RBI through 237 plate appearances, but he's struggled during his two brief MLB stints this season.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Launches two homers

    Dalbec went 4-for-6 with a triple, two home runs, four RBI and two additional runs scored for Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday.

    Dalbec broke out of a mini slump -- 3-for-21 over the previous six games -- in a big way Wednesday. He continues to rake at Triple-A with 16 home runs and 40 RBI over 47 games for the WooSox. It seems like there would be a home for his bat in Boston, but the team remains committed to fixing Triston Casas at first base and won't have Dalbec at third base ahead of Rafael Devers. It appears the organization is content having him light up the minors and improve his trade value.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Hitting, but no room in MLB

    Dalbec is batting .421 (24-for-57) with nine home runs and 19 RBI over the last 15 games at Triple-A Worcester, but the Red Sox don't have room for him on the major-league roster, Ian Browne of reports. "We're glad that he's doing well. You know, not only hitting for power, but hitting for average. But obviously roster wise right now, this is who we have," manager Alex Cora said.

    The Red Sox appear committed to Triston Casas at first base despite early struggles, and they have a right-handed bat behind him in Justin Turner. If there's no room for Dalbec in Boston, his obvious value to the organization comes as a possible trade chip, particularly if he keeps hitting like this. For the season, Dalbec is batting .310/.426/.662 with 14 homers, 35 RBI and 36 runs over 40 games for the WooSox.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Being shopped

    The Red Sox are actively shopping Dalbec, Peter Gammons reports.

    Gammons reported two National League executives as the source of his intel. Dalbec does not have a path to a regular role with Boston, but both execs believe Dalbec can harness his power and play everyday at third base.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Optioned to Triple-A

    Dalbec was optioned to Triple-A Worcester by Boston on Friday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    It's likely that the corresponding transaction will be Pablo Reyes joining Boston on Saturday after he was acquired by the Red Sox in a trade before Friday's game. Dalbec will head back to Triple-A for now, but he figures to make several more trips between Boston and Worcester before the 2023 season comes to a close.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Returns to big club

    The Red Sox recalled Dalbec from Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, Ian Browne of reports.

    He'll provide Boston with another right-handed-hitting option out of the infield after Christian Arroyo (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Dalbec has seen action at first base, third base and shortstop between Boston and Triple-A this season and should be an option at all three positions while he's up with the big club, though he's unlikely to be used as anything more than a short-side platoon bat.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Sent down to minors

    The Red Sox optioned Dalbec to Triple-A Worcester on Monday.

    Dalbec's stay with Boston lasted just under a week, with the 27-year-old infielder appearing in four games and going 2-for-9 with two walks against five strikeouts during his time with the big club. Boston called up outfielder Jarren Duran from Triple-A to replace Dalbec on the 26-man active roster.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Shifts to third base

    Dalbec started at third base and went 0-for-3 in Thursday's 9-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

    He filled in for a resting Rafael Devers after playing shortstop the day before. The Red Sox are moving Dalbec around -- he's played first base, shortstop and now third base over the last three games -- trying to take advantage of a potentially explosive right-handed bat against a string of southpaws. He's 2-for-9 with two walks and a stolen base since being called up.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Starts at shortstop

    Dalbec started at shortstop and went 0-for-4 in Wednesday's 9-7 loss to the Rays.

    Dalbec made his second career start at shortstop, and it was an inauspicious one. He booted a grounder in the first inning that helped lead to Tampa Bay scoring three times. Dalbec is familiar with that side of the infield, having come up through the system as a third baseman, but he doesn't have a defensive home on this year's club. He's expected to remain up with the team while the Red Sox are projected to face four straight lefties through the weekend, but Dalbec could be back in the minors after that stretch.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: On base twice, steals bag

    Dalbec started at first base and went 1-for-1 with a walk and a stolen base in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to the Rays.

    The Red Sox held primary first baseman Triston Casas on the bench, giving Dalbec his first start since being called up from Triple-A Worcester after Boston placed Adam Duvall (wrist) on the injured list. The Red Sox opted to call up Dalbec instead of center fielder Jarren Duran because they are projected to face several lefties in the coming week and felt Dalbec's right-handed bat was a better offensive fit. At this time, first base is not considered a platoon, although Casas, much like Dalbec the last two seasons, is off to a slow start. He's batting .161 after two hitless at-bats off the bench Tuesday. The Red Sox will see right-hander Taj Bradley on Wednesday, so expect Casas back in the lineup. After Wednesday, Boston is projected to see four consecutive lefties, which means potential starts for Dalbec. At some point next week, the team could replace Dalbec with the lefty-hitting Duran, who could be part of the rotation replacing Duvall in the field.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Making start at first base

    Dalbec is starting at first base and batting eighth for Tuesday's contest against the Rays.

    Dalbec laced his first hit of the season Monday in a pinch-hit capacity and will now make his first start Tuesday. Boston is slated to face a slew of southpaws over the next several days, so Dalbec could be busy.
