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

    Dalbec was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    He is not in the lineup against the Yankees but should be available off the bench. Dalbec should occupy the short side of a platoon at first base while also seeing time at designated hitter and as a pinch hitter. He hit .250 with five home runs and 14 strikeouts in 13 games at Triple-A this month.

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

    Dalbec was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Sunday.

    News of Dalbec's demotion was reported Saturday night, and he's now officially been sent to the minors. The 27-year-old had a solid .792 OPS with 25 home runs and 78 RBI in his first full season of big-league action last year, but he was unable to replicate those results in 2022 with a .211/.282/.362 slash line. Top prospect Triston Casas was promoted in a corresponding move and should step in as Boston's primary first baseman. Dalbec will attempt to straighten things out with Worcester in hopes of rejoining the Red Sox in the closing stages of the campaign.

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

    Dalbec will be optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    McWilliams confirms that top prospect Triston Casas will join the club and adds that it will be Dalbec who loses his roster spot. Dalbec was once a top prospect himself, but he has struggled to a .211/.282/.362 line this year. He will now attempt to reset himself at Triple-A before potentially rejoining the club late in the season.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Starts Wednesday

    Dalbec started at first base and went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in Wednesday's 6-5 win over Minnesota.

    Dalbec made just his sixth start since Aug. 12 and was the third player to start at first base in the three-game set with the Twins. According to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com, Boston manager Alex Cora plans to rotate Dalbec, Christian Arroyo and Franchy Cordero at first base while Eric Hosmer (back) is on the injured list. That's a different message than what Cora said last week, when he indicated Arroyo would play "a lot" at first base.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Two RBI in loss

    Dalbec went 1-for-4 with two RBI, one run scored and one steal in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays.

    The first baseman tied the game at 2-2 with an RBI single off Kevin Gausman in the second inning. Dalbec has been in a mini-slump during his last four games coming into Thursday, going 0-for-10. The 27-year-old had also struck out seven times with two walks during that span.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Makes first career start at SS

    Dalbec started at shortstop and went 0-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays.

    The Red Sox were missing two middle infielders due to injury -- Xander Bogaerts (back) and Christian Arroyo (leg) -- so manager Alex Cora had to get creative. Enrique Hernandez moved from center field to second base, where he has 218 games of experience during his career, and Dalbec made his first-ever start at shortstop. He's played a four innings there in the majors and three while in the minors, but Cora pointed out to Christopher Smith of MassLive.com that he's also shifted to that spot while playing third base. Dalbec is unlikely a long-term solution if Bogaerts is forced to miss significant time.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Enters for Hosmer

    Dalbec entered Saturday's game after Eric Hosmer was removed due to back pain. He went 0-for-2 in a 4-3 win over Baltimore.

    Dalbec's already marginal playing time has taken a hit since Hosmer's arrival in Boston. The latter has had 45 plate appearances compared to Dalbec's 19. It's uncertain how long Hosmer will be impacted by the injury, but Dalbec will benefit from an uptick in playing time in the short term.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Slugs 11th homer

    Dalbec went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Royals.

    Dalbec has hit safely in three of his four games in August, but the presence of Eric Hosmer on the roster likely means he'll see less playing time down the stretch. This was Dalbec's first homer since he swatted two versus the Guardians on July 27. The corner infielder is up to 11 long balls this season while adding 32 RBI, 32 runs scored, two stolen bases and a mediocre .205/.280/.369 slash line through 300 plate appearances.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Back in bench role

    Dalbec is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Even with southpaw Kris Bubic taking the hill for Kansas City, the Red Sox won't find room in the lineup for the righty-hitting Dalbec, who started each of the past 12 games at either third base or first base. Dalbec's path to playing time at the hot corner closed Tuesday when Rafael Devers was reinstated from the injured list, and Dalbec won't have a regular spot in the lineup at first base either with Eric Hosmer (neck) having been cleared to make his team debut Thursday after being acquired from the Padres earlier in the week. The lefty-hitting Hosmer also has a stronger track record against left-handed pitching at the big-league level than Franchy Cordero did prior to being demoted to Triple-A Worcester, so Dalbec may not even be in line for a short-side platoon role moving forward.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Days as everyday player numbered

    Dalbec's status as an everyday player for the Red Sox is expected to come to an end soon after manager Alex Cora said that Eric Hosmer (neck) will "play a lot" following his acquisition from the Padres on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Dalbec started Tuesday and and went 1-for-2 with walk in a win over the Astros. However, once Hosmer is ready to join the active roster, expect to see less of Dalbec, who should see most of his opportunities against left-handed pitching moving forward.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Goes yard twice

    Dalbec went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs and five RBI in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Guardians.

    Dalbec hit two-run blasts in the second and sixth innings and added a sacrifice fly in the fourth. The 27-year-old did all of his damage against Guardians starter Cal Quantrill. With five homers in 19 games in July, the power is not the question with Dalbec. He's also hit safely in only four of his last 14 games. The infielder owns a .206/.279/.370 slash line with 10 homers, 28 RBI, 29 runs scored and two stolen bases through 272 plate appearances. Dalbec is likely to hold down a near-everyday role at third base until Rafael Devers (hamstring) returns from the injured list.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Solo homer in loss

    Dalbec went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss against the Blue Jays.

    Dalbec was responsible for all of Boston's offense Saturday, launching a second-inning solo shot off Alek Manoah. It was his eighth home run of the season and his third in July. The first baseman picked up two hits in the contest after going hitless in his last three appearances. He has struggled throughout the season, but July has been especially rough for Dalbec, who has 22 strikeouts and 10 hits. He is carrying a .210 batting average after Saturday's contest. In addition to his work at first base, Dalbec may get starts at third base while Rafael Devers (hamstring) is on the 10-day injured list.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Sits after six straight starts

    Dalbec is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Thanks to the Red Sox facing a few lefties of late in addition to Rafael Devers, J.D. Martinez and Trevor Story having all missed games with minor injuries, Dalbec had started in each of the past six contests. Story (hand) remains out Thursday, but with Devers and Martinez healthy and right-hander Drew Rasmussen on the bump for Tampa Bay, manager Alex Cora won't have room in the lineup for Dalbec.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Gets fourth straight start

    Dalbec will start at third base and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Rays, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Dalbec will stick in the lineup for the fourth game in a row and should play regularly against both left- and right-handed pitching until Rafael Devers (back) is ready to rejoin the lineup. Even if Devers is able to put an end to his three-game absence Tuesday, he may serve as a designated hitter, as manager Alex Cora suggested that he wants to be cautious with the 25-year-old's usage on the Tropicana Field turf. If Devers ends up returning as a DH in Tampa Bay, Dalbec could still pick up a few more starts at third base before the All-Star break.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Belts sixth homer

    Dalbec went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 12-5 loss to the Yankees.

    His fourth-inning blast off Nestor Cortes was Dalbec's first homer in nearly a month, snapping an 18-game drought in which he's gone 10-for-44 (.227) with only one double and two RBI. The 27-year-old has started just four of the last 10 games for Boston, and his .210/.289/.340 slash line on the season with six homers and a paltry 19 RBI through 74 contests don't make a compelling case for a bigger role.

  • 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.
