  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Knocks two hits, steals bag

    Dalbec went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base, his second of the season, in Monday's 7-2 loss to Toronto.

    Dalbec got the start at first base against right-hander Kevin Gausman, which is usually Franchy Cordero's role. The decision to use Dalbec may signal a change in the playing-time situation at first base. He has a .273 average and .805 OPS since May 26; over that same stretch, Cordero is batting .221 with a .687 OPS.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Starting streak ends

    Dalbec is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Franchy Cordero is receiving the nod at first base, but Dalbec is effectively being replaced in the lineup by Triple-A Worcester call-up Jarren Duran, who is joining the starting outfield. Cordero had been seeing more time in the outfield of late following Enrique Hernandez's (hip) recent placement on the injured list, which had allowed Dalbec to earn more work against right-handed pitching. Dalbec started each of Boston's last seven contests.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Piling up starts

    Dalbec will start at first base and bat eighth in Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    The righty-hitting Dalbec's inclusion in the lineup against a left-handed starting pitcher (Jared Koenig) doesn't come as much of a surprise, but the 26-year-old first baseman has been picking up more work versus right-handed pitching of late as well. Dalbec will pick up his seventh start in a row Tuesday, with six coming at first base. Platoon mate Franchy Cordero -- who is on the bench for the second game in a row due to the lefty-on-lefty matchup -- has been seeing more work in the outfield of late while Enrique Hernandez (hip) has been on the injured list.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Goes deep against hometown team

    Dalbec went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-3 win over the Mariners.

    Dalbec has hit safely in four straight games, going 6-for-15 (.400) in that span. His homer in the seventh inning Friday restored a lead for the Red Sox. The first baseman got his average over the Mendoza Line for the first time since April 13 with the two-hit effort -- he's now slashing .201/.280/.329 with four homers, 15 RBI, 19 runs scored and a stolen base in 168 plate appearances.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Drives in lone run

    Dalbec started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Angels.

    Dalbec filled in for a resting Rafael Devers against lefty Reid Detmers and delivered Alex Verdugo from first base with a sixth-inning double. It was encouraging that the hit came against a righty (reliever Jimmy Herget), which has been the source of many of Dalbec's failings and resulted in him being on the short side of a platoon at first base. He's picked it up at the plate recently, posting a .286/.359/.514 slash line with two home runs and seven RBI over the last 12 contests, but that's come mostly in favorable matchups.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Knocks in two, steals base in win

    Dalbec went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Angels.

    Both of Dalbec's hits were RBI singles. The first baseman also picked up his first stolen base of the year in the sixth. Tuesday marked just his sixth multi-hit effort of the season, ending a 1-for-11 skid at the plate to start June. Overall, he's posted an uninspiring .187/.269/.295 slash line with three homers, 12 RBI, 18 runs scored, four doubles and a triple through 156 plate appearances. Dalbec saw a little extra playing time while Jackie Bradley was on the paternity list, but now that he's back with the team, Franchy Cordero is likely to return to the strong side of a platoon at first base. That will limit Dalbec mainly to starting against left-handed pitchers.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Starts against RHP

    Dalbec went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in Friday's 7-2 win over the Athletics.

    Dalbec, who normally sits against right-handers, was in the starting lineup against Oakland righty James Kaprielian, while Franchy Cordero covered right field for Jackie Bradley who was placed on the paternity list Friday. The Red Sox recalled outfielder Jarren Duran for the series, but he didn't arrive to the ballpark until close to opening pitch. With Oakland scheduled to throw righties Saturday and Sunday, manager Alex Cora told Sonja Chen of MLB.com that Duran would likely play in both games this weekend. That suggests Cordero would move back to first base and Dalbec would sit.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Swats pinch-hit homer

    Dalbec went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against Baltimore.

    Dalbec pinch hit for Franchy Cordero and broke a 3-3 tie with just his second homer of the season and first since April 10. He also had a hit in the nightcap, giving him at least one knock in three straight games. Relegated to starting against left-handers and an occasional righty, Dalbec's playing time is scattered, and he isn't helping fantasy teams at this time.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Enters for Verdugo

    Dalbec went 1-for-2 with a walk and an RBI in Saturday's 6-5 win over Seattle.

    Per usual these days, Dalbec was not in the starting lineup against a righty, but he entered after Alex Verdugo was removed with flu-like symptoms. Franchy Cordero shifted from first base to left field, while Dalbec took Cordero's spot. The Red Sox will learn more about Verdugo's status and were uncertain about his availability Sunday, so Dalbec could slot in against right-hander Logan Gilbert.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: In lineup against righty

    Dalbec started at first base and went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 11-3 win over Texas.

    Since Franchy Cordero was called up two weeks ago, Dalbec has sat against right-handed starters, but he was in the lineup Saturday against Glenn Otto while Cordero covered left field for the injured Alex Verdugo (foot). Dalbec hasn't hit pitchers of either hand very well in 2022. He had similar issues last season before getting hot over August and September. The Red Sox had thought Dalbec turned a corner then, but the struggles have continued this year.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Starts against RHP

    Dalbec started at first base and went 1-for-4 in Thursday's 8-0 loss to the Angels.

    Dalbec was recently demoted to a platoon role at first base, sitting against right-handers while Franchy Cordero mans the position, but Cordero was needed in the outfield to help cover for the ailing Enrique Hernandez (illness). As a result, Dalbec was in the lineup against the Angels' Shohei Ohtani, and his second-inning single snapped an 0-for-16 run. Either against righties (.462 OPS) or lefties (.349), Dalbec has not been good so far in 2022.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Returns to starting lineup

    Dalbec went 0-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in Wednesday's 10-5 extra-inning loss to the Angels.

    With lefty Reid Detmers on the bump for the Angels, Dalbec returned to the starting lineup but watched his batting average dip to a season-low .141. The 26-year-old corner infielder will continue to platoon with Franchy Cordero at first base, but prospect Triston Casas is nipping at his heels at Triple-A Worcester.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Reduced to platoon role

    Dalbec will start at first base against left-handers, while Franchy Cordero slots in against righties, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Dalbec's season-opening funk finally cost him plate appearances, reducing him to the short side of a platoon. Cordero was called up Friday and started against Baltimore right-hander Kyle Bradish. With O's righty Spenser Watkins projected to start Saturday, Dalbec should open the game on the bench. Dalbec, who entered Friday's game as a defensive replacement, is batting .154 through 19 games.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Not starting Friday

    Dalbec isn't starting Friday's game against the Orioles, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Dalbec will have a chance to reset after going 0-for-9 with an RBI, a walk and five strikeouts over his last three appearances. Franchy Cordero will start at first base and bat sixth after his contract was selected by the Red Sox on Friday.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Another hitless effort

    Dalbec went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and an RBI in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Blue Jays.

    While the Red Sox's bats begin to emerge, Dalbec is notable for a lack of production. The first baseman is batting .161 (10-for-62) with three RBI and is 2-for-20 with runners in scoring position. He and Travis Shaw (0-for-17) make for the league's least-productive first base tandem with a .382 OPS. When rosters are reduced beginning May 1, the Red Sox could make changes. Shaw is likely to be part of the roster reduction, but it will be interesting to see if the organization promotes prospect Triston Casas from Triple-A Worcester.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Delivers run in loss

    Dalbec went 1-for-4 with an RBI-triple and scored a run in Saturday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Rays.

    A nine-inning pitchers' duel, which included nine no-hit innings by Tampa Bay pitching, turned wild in the 10th. Dalbec delivered the game's first run and scored on a sacrifice fly in the top of the 10th inning, but the Rays came back in the bottom half of the frame. Dalbec's slow start is like his 2021 season; he's 8-for-48 (.167) with one home run, two RBI and a .523 OPS through 13 games.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Gets start at 3B

    Dalbec is getting his first start of the season at third base Thursday, hitting fifth against the Blue Jays.

    With J.D. Martinez (groin) out of the lineup, Rafael Devers will get a start at DH, opening up the hot corner for Dalbec. While Devers is healthy, Dalbec's starts at third base will likely be rare, but it's worth noting that the Red Sox are still willing to deploy him at the hot corner, at least on occasion.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Sitting out Patriots' Day game

    Dalbec is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Travis Shaw will get a look at first base in the series finale, breaking a streak of five consecutive starts for Dalbec. During that five-game stretch, Dalbec went 3-for-20 at the dish, dropping his season average to .167.
