Bobby Dalbec News
Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec isn't starting the second game of the American League Division Series. Dalbec started at first base and hit seventh in Game 1, going hitless in four plate appearances. The 26-year-old hit .240 with a .298 on-base percentage, 25 home runs, and two stolen bases in 453 plate appearances this season. He'll move to the bench with Kyle Schwarber getting the start at first base and J.D. Martinez entering the lineup at designated hitter. Schwarber is batting leadoff while Martinez is hitting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Shane Baz.
Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec hit a home run Friday, his only hit in four at-bats against the Washington Nationals in a 4-2 victory. The solo shot was his 25th of the year. Dalbec has homered 11 times in his last 30 games, slashing .281/.355/.708 in 106 plate appearances during that span. It remains to be seen whether Dalbec's second-half adjustments will carry over in 2022, but he could be blossoming into a fantasy superstar.
Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec returned to the starting lineup for the first time in three days against the New York Yankees Saturday, and he went 1-for-4 with a home run. Dalbec has been the offensive leader of the team for the past few months, slashing .288/.367/.644 since the All-Star break and now has 24 homers on the season, but he still sits against some right-handed starters. He needs to be in lineups the rest of the way, but he holds the most value in leagues with daily lineup changes.
Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec made his major league debut last year after slugging his way through the minors. After hitting 79 homers with a .505 slugging percentage over four years in the minors, Dalbec launched eight home runs and slashed .263/.359/.600 in just 23 games last year. He was trying for the fences on every swing though, as he posted a 21.2 percent swinging strike rate and an astronomical 42.4 percent strikeout rate. But when he made contact it was solid as he recorded a 14.8 degree launch angle, 22 percent barrel rate and 43.9 percent hard-hit rate. Looking towards this season, managers should expect the average to come down a bit as Dalbec's .394 BABIP was a career-high and his .199 xBA suggests he was somewhat lucky with his average. Dalbec will give you about 30 homers with an average in the low .200s, but for managers looking for power late in drafts he'll be a steal at his current ADP of 280.
