Dalbec went 2-for-3 with two home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's spring game against the Twins.
Dalbec's power potential has been on display early in camp. The 25-year-old slugger has three homers in six at-bats over four games. Dalbec will be Boston's primary starter at first base in 2021.
Dalbec started at first base and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Sunday's spring game against Minnesota.
Dalbec should be Boston's primary first baseman in 2021 following a season in which he slugged .600 (.337 ISO) with eight home runs over 80 at-bats. There's a lot of swing-and-miss to him (42.4 K%), but Dalbec's power numbers have been exemplary in the minors.
Dalbec went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 8-2 win over Atlanta.
Dalbec opened the scoring in the second inning with his blast off Atlanta starter Tucker Davidson. The Red Sox rallied for six more runs in the inning and cruised to the win. Dalbec has eight homers, 16 RBI, 12 runs scored and a .273/.356/.623 slash line in his first 22 major-league games.
Dalbec started at third base and went 1-for-3 with two walks and an RBI in Friday's 8-7 extra-innings loss to the Braves.
Dalbec is projected as Boston's everyday first baseman in 2021, but it should be remembered he came up through the system as a very capable defensive third baseman. Rafael Devers is Boston's starter at the hot corner, but he's struggled on defense. He eventually entered Friday's game and committed his 14th error. After showing improvement with his glove in 2019, Devers has regressed this season. It's likely the Red Sox will work on Devers' fielding issues, but they may eventually consider swapping their corner infielders.
Dalbec went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Orioles.
Dalbec has hit safely in three straight contests since an off-day Friday, which came after a 2-for-15 stretch that included 10 strikeouts. He's 5-for-10 with a home run and three RBI in his mini-streak. Dalbec has 10 extra-base hits among his 18 hits this season, giving the rookie a .375 ISO.
Dalbec returned to the starting lineup Saturday and went 1-for-3 in an 8-0 loss to the Yankees.
Dalbec, who is in Sunday's starting lineup, was given a break Friday after striking out four times Thursday. Fantasy owners will need to tolerate a high strikeout percentage in Dalbec's offensive profile in order to reap the benefits of his power.
Dalbec is not in the lineup Friday against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Dalbec started the past four games and will receive a day off after going 2-for-15 with 10 strikeouts. Michael Chavis receives the start at first base while J.D. Martinez takes over in left field.
Dalbec is not starting Saturday against the Rays.
Dalbec will be protected from a matchup against a tough righty, Tyler Glasnow. The rookie has struck out in 46.5 percent of his 43 plate appearances so far but has hit an incredible six homers in 11 games, giving him a .282/.349/.769 slash line. Michael Chavis will start at first base Saturday.
Dalbec went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI in Friday's 11-1 loss to the Rays.
Dalbec was chasing MLB history, trying to become the first rookie to hit home runs in six consecutive games, but his streak ended at five. The good news is that he's hit in six straight, going 9-for-21 with eight RBI. That's turned around a rough start to his career, when he went 2-for-18 with 11 strikeouts over his first five contests.
Dalbec went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Rays.
Dalbec took Josh Fleming deep in the fifth inning for his sixth home run of the season. He's now homered in five consecutive starts, with the only downside being four have been solo shots. Dalbec has struck out in an alarming 49 percent of his 39 plate appearances to this point, though his .750 slugging percentage is offsetting all those whiffs at the moment.
Dalbec homered in both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, going a combined 3-for-6 with a walk and four RBI.
The rookie feasted on the Phillies' setup crew, taking Tommy Hunter deep for a solo shot in the sixth inning of the matinee before launching a two-run shot off David Phelps in the same frame during the nightcap. The latter blast proved to be the game-winner, giving the Red Sox a split in the twin bill. Dalbec has now gone yard in four straight games, the longest homer streak by a rookie in franchise history, and he has five blasts in his first nine MLB games.
Dalbec went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Dalbec homered for the second consecutive game, taking Robbie Ray deep in the fourth inning. He now has three home runs on the season, though he has struck out 14 times in 28 plate appearances to start his major-league career.
Dalbec went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's 9-8 win over the Blue Jays.
Dalbec hit the third Red Sox homer of the second inning, a line drive that just cleared the Green Monster and barely stayed fair. He later got aboard with a single and scored on a Rafael Devers double in the fourth. Dalbec now has two homers among his three major-league hits. He's up to three RBI and three runs scored in six games.
Dalbec is not in the lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader against Toronto, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Dalbec started at first base Thursday and went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in a 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays.
Dalbec has started four of five games since the Red Sox called him up from the alternate camp. As someone who could be the primary starter at first base in 2021, it makes sense Dalbec will see regular plate appearances. However, that doesn't mean they will be good plate appearances. Dalbec is hitless in his last 11 at-bats and has struck out 10 times in 15 at-bats.
Dalbec is not starting Tuesday against the Braves, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Dalbec started the Red Sox's first two game after earning his first career callup Sunday, going 2-for-8 with a homer and six strikeouts. Michael Chavis will be the first baseman Tuesday, with Yairo Munoz serving as the designated hitter.
Dalbec started at designated hitter and went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Braves.
Dalbec followed up Sunday's MLB debut, when he homered in his first plate appearance, with a four-strikeout night. That aligns with his minor-league track record as a productive home-run hitter with high strikeout totals. The rookie will be challenged by MLB pitching in September, but the Red Sox are going to give Dalbec regular at-bats in preparation for what is expected to be an everyday role in 2021.
Dalbec made his major-league debut in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Nationals, going 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a single.
After striking out in his first big-league plate appearance, Dalbec wrapped a homer around the Pesky Pole for his first career hit in the third inning. He added a single later in the game. The 25-year-old is expected to handle the bulk of the first-base duties going forward with Mitch Moreland being traded to San Diego on Saturday.
The Red Sox recalled Dalbec from their alternate training site ahead of Sunday's game against the Nationals, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Boston has yet to reveal its starting nine for the series finale, but Dalbec is expected to enter the lineup at first base as a replacement for Mitch Moreland, who was traded to the Padres. The 25-year-old will likely handle a full-time role for the rest of the season as the 11-22 Red Sox take a longer look at some younger prospects in a rebuilding campaign. Dalbec offers plus power from the right side of the plate, but he may be a liability in the batting-average category in his initial exposure to big-league pitching.
Dalbec will practice at Boston's alternate camp, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Dalbec had an outside shot of making the 30-man roster, but the Red Sox opted to keep Rule 5 pick Jonathan Arauz.
