  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Demotion coming

    The Red Sox will option Dalbec to Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

    The 28-year-old no longer had a path to clear playing time after the Red Sox signed Dominic Smith to split time at first base with Garrett Cooper, so Dalbec will head to the minors to serve as an organizational depth piece. He slashed just .137/.200/.176 across 56 plate appearances with Boston this season.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Enters for injured teammate

    Dalbec entered Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Giants in the bottom of the fifth inning after Garrett Cooper was hit by a pitch on the wrist. Dalbec was hit by a pitch and subsequently stole a base in his lone plate appearance.

    The early word on Cooper's injury is a wrist contusion, and it's unclear how much time he'll need to make a full recovery. The development puts Dalbec back in the mix for more playing time; he had been the primary first baseman prior to Boston acquiring Cooper last week.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Bat shows life in win

    Dalbec went 2-for-4 with a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 17-0 win over the Cubs.

    Dalbec's bat, like many others in the lineup, came alive in the blowout win. His season-opening struggles are epic -- zero hits in his first 19 at-bats and one in the first 32 -- but the corner infielder now has a four-game hit streak (5-for-15). However, it may be too late save his job as the team's primary fill-in at first base while Triston Casas (ribs, 60-day IL) is sidelined. The Red Sox acquired Garrett Cooper from the Cubs on Saturday, and he is expected to get the bulk of the starts at first base until Casas is ready to return. Cooper is expected to be activated in time for Tuesday's series opener against the Giants.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Fills in at first base

    Dalbec started at first base and went 0-for-2 in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Cleveland.

    The day after Boston learned it would be without primary first baseman Triston Casas (fractured rib) for a significant stretch of time, Dalbec replaced him at first base. Unfortunately, Dalbec's season-opening struggles continued. He's now 1-for-32 (.031) with 18 strikeouts. Red Sox manager Alex Cora told Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe that Dalbec is expected to serve as the primary replacement for Casas, but Dalbec's leash could shorten quickly if he fails to get going at the plate in the near future.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Starts at third, moves to first

    Dalbec started at third base and then moved to first base after Triston Casas (rib) was removed from Saturday's 4-2 win over the Pirates.

    Casas underwent testing to determine the severity of the injury and was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, per Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald. That suggests Dalbec could be in line as a replacement at first base for as long as Casas needs; however, Dalbec is batting just .038 (1-for-26) to start the season.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Collects first hit

    Dalbec started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Friday's 8-1 win over Pittsburgh.

    Dalbec started in place of Rafael Devers (knee), who missed a second consecutive game, and collected his first hit of the season. Dalbec had gone 19 at-bats with a hit before his second-inning double. The Red Sox are taking it day by day with Devers, and manager Alex Cora told Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe that "as of now" Devers is not a candidate for the injured list. Dalbec and Pablo Reyes have started at third with Devers sidelined.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Hitless in return

    Dalbec started at third base and went 0-for-3 in Friday's 7-0 loss to the Angels.

    Dalbec was called up from Triple-A Worcester on Friday and was included in the lineup for Rafael Devers (shoulder). The injured third baseman is also expected to sit out Saturday, per Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe, so Dalbec may get a second straight start. Dalbec, who opened the season on the 26-man roster, is still seeking his first hit (0-for-12).

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

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

    Dalbec was optioned down to Triple-A on Monday, but he is back with the Red Sox four days later after the team placed RHP Isaiah Campbell on the 15-day injured list. Dalbec went 1-for-7 with a solo home run and one walk over his two games with Worcester. With Rafael Devers (shoulder) out for Friday's game against the Angels, Dalbec will start at third base and bat fifth in the lineup.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Slated to be recalled

    Dalbec will be recalled from Triple-A Worcester prior to Friday's game versus the Angels, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    It hasn't been 10 days since Dalbec was optioned, which means he will have to replace an injured player. That player presumably will either be Romy Gonzalez (wrist) or Rafael Devers (shoulder), but it's not clear yet which of the two players it will be. If it's Devers, Dalbec could get a decent number of reps at third base.

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

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

    Dalbec has struggled at the plate to start the season, going 0-for-9 with six strikeouts. He slashed .269/.381/.557 with 33 home runs and 80 RBI over 493 plate appearances in Triple-A last season. Dalbec will look to find his form with Worcester and attempt to work his way back to the majors.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Fills in at third base

    Dalbec started at third base and went 0-for-3 in Friday's 1-0 loss to the Mariners.

    Dalbec was a late addition to the lineup after primary third baseman Rafael Devers (shoulder) was scratched. Dalbec batted eighth in the order and struck out twice, including in the sixth inning with two runners on. Devers told Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe that he could be given Saturday off as well, which puts Dalbec in line for potentially another start.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Still with team

    Dalbec appears to have won a spot on the roster, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Confirmation of Boston's 26-man roster is still pending, but the Red Sox released Dalbec's main competition, C.J. Cron, on Sunday. The team could still be in the market for right-handed complement to Triston Casas at first base, although manager Alex Cora told reporters that there is a "good chance" Dalbec sticks. He finished the Grapefruit League batting .255 (12-for-47) with three home runs and nine RBI. His position versatility could be helpful, as Dalbec can play both corner infield spots.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Will play outfield

    Dalbec will soon get starts as an outfielder in spring games, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Dalbec is competing with C.J. Cron to be the right-handed backup behind Triston Casas at first base and can also play third base. With Rob Refsnyder (toe) set to miss four-to-six weeks, the Red Sox will give Dalbec exposure to the outfield. He doesn't have major-league experience there, but Dalbec did play 36 games in right field for Triple-A Worcester last season. Dalbec, who started at third base Wednesday and went 2-for-4, is 8-for-27 (.296) with a double, a home run and seven RBI over 12 Grapefruit League contests.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Facing competition at 1B

    Dalbec is not projected to make the Opening Day roster in the latest roster projection from Ian Browne of MLB.com.

    While the Red Sox have exposed Dalbec to the outfield, he had been expected to back up Triston Casas at first base. That all changed when Boston inked C.J. Cron to a minor-league deal with an invite to camp Friday. If Cron passes a physical, he could serve as the right-handed complement to Casas.

  • Red Sox's Bobby Dalbec: Receiving outfield reps

    Dalbec is taking reps in the outfield Friday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Defense has never been a strength for Dalbec, but becoming a viable option in the corner outfield would increase his value as a utility player. The 28-year-old tallied just 53 plate appearances with the Red Sox last season, seeing most of his action at first base, but he was a force offensively at Triple-A Worcester with 33 home runs, 17 steals and a .938 OPS.

  • 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.
