  • 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.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Makes season debut

    Dalbec went 1-for-1 as a pinch hitter then finished the game at first base in Monday's 1-0 loss to the Rays.

    Dalbec batted for Triston Casas in the eighth inning against lefty reliever Colin Poche for his his first appearance of 2023. He was called up when the Red Sox placed center fielder Adam Duvall (wrist) on the injured list. Dalbec got the call over natural center fielder Jarren Duran, because Boston is expected to see seven lefties in the next eight games, making the righty-hitting Dalbec a better offensive fit at this time, according to Chris Cotillo of However, the team could promote Duran after the upcoming stretch and move Dalbec back to Triple-A Worcester. For now, Red Sox manager Alex Cora plans to rotate Rob Refsnyder, Raimel Tapia and the team's primary shortstop, Enrique Hernandez, in center. When Hernandez starts in the outfield, Cora could use Dalbec as a replacement at short, although Yu Chang is the most likely option.

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

    The Red Sox recalled Dalbec from Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    He's taking the roster spot vacated by Adam Duvall (wrist). Dalbec has started games at first base, third base and shortstop this season at Worcester and could see playing time in the infield if the Red Sox want to use Enrique Hernandez in center field while Duvall is out. He probably won't play enough or hit well enough to be worthy of a fantasy roster spot, though.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Slated to join major-league club

    Dalbec will join the Red Sox ahead of their upcoming series in Tampa Bay that begins Monday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    After missing out on Boston's Opening Day roster, Dalbec should be activated Monday, but an official move won't be made Sunday. However, the 27-year-old has defensive versatility and would provide depth if Adam Duvall (wrist) requires a trip to the injured list. Dalbec slashed .215/.283/.369 with 12 homers, 40 runs, 39 RBI and three steals over 117 games with the big-league club last year, and the right-handed hitter should have a chance to earn playing time in Tampa Bay since the Rays are slated to start three southpaws during the four-game series.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Bid for roster berth falls short

    The Red Sox optioned Dalbec to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Dalbec's demotion likely confirms that Yu Chang has secured the final bench spot on the Red Sox's Opening Day roster as a utility infielder. Though he's long intrigued with his power potential, Dalbec's high strikeout rates and career-long struggles against right-handed pitching make it difficult to envision the 27-year-old serving as anything more than a short-side platoon man over the long haul.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Gets work at shortstop

    Dalbec will make his fourth consecutive start at shortstop Saturday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

    Dalbec is producing this spring but doesn't have an everyday home on the diamond. When a player goes 11-for-34 (.324) with three doubles, two triples and a home run, a manager will try to find spots. Dalbec has experience at first and third base and played some shortstop before. "Bobby's a great athlete," manager Alex Cora told Abraham. "He understands what he can do with his body and his internal clock is great. Off-balance throws, double plays... he understands the game and he's a good defender." The biggest question about Dalbec is if he can hit enough to maintain a steady role in the regular season. Over the last two seasons, Dalbec hit a combined .229 over 250 games.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Shows off new mechanics

    Dalbec went 2-for-2 with a double, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Saturday's spring game against Atlanta.

    Dalbec's had explosive springs that were followed by disappointing results in the regular season, but he talked to Ian Browne of about new swing mechanics implemented over the winter. "I spent this offseason just getting that pole-to-pole juice back without having to try too hard," he said. "My swing has way less effort and is way more fluid. That was a big thing I was focusing on." Both of Dalbec's extra-base hits went to right field. He doesn't have a starting job, but a consistently hitting Dalbec could jump ahead of Justin Turner as a the right-handed complement to Triston Casas at first base.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Will play third, short

    Dalbec will get starts at third base and shortstop during spring training, Chris Cotillo of reports.

    Dalbec is a forgotten man on the roster. He opened the last two seasons as Boston's primary first baseman, but that job now belongs to Triston Casas while Justin Turner becomes the right-handed complement against tough lefties. With Boston losing third baseman Rafael Devers and shortstop Enrique Hernandez to the World Baseball Classic, Dalbec will get the bulk of reps at either of those spots. The decision is seen as a potential trade showcase for Dalbec, although his value has never been lower. The Red Sox still believe in him and maintained the 27-year-old on the 40-man roster during an active offseason when many players were jettisoned. That Dalbec's under control through 2026 and can be carried at Triple-A Worcester means the team is not in a hurry to trade him.
