Bobby Dalbec News
Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec is out of the lineup against the New York Yankees Sunday night. This could become a common occurrence against right-handed starters, as Jarren Duran's call-up means Kike Hernandez will move to second base on those occasions, shifting Christian Arroyo to first base. It's hard to argue that Dalbec has earned a full-time starting job, as he has produced just a .667 OPS with 10 home runs. Fantasy managers have to wonder if he's still worth a roster spot.
Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec (hamstring) is back in the lineup on Saturday vs. the Oakland Athletics. The 26-year-old missed the last three games after suffering a hamstring injury in Tuesday's win over the Royals. He's slashing a disappointing .218/.267/.426 on the but he does have 10 home runs and 34 RBI. He's got a lot of swing and miss in his game (86:12 K/BB ratio), which makes him hard to roster in fantasy. He's starting at first base and batting eighth against Oakland left-hander Cole Irvin.
Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec (hamstring) is out of the lineup Thursday against the Kansas City Royals. This is his second consecutive game on the bench after appearing to suffer the injury in Tuesday's contest. Danny Santana will step in and bat eighth in the lineup. Dalbec has shown some positive signs this season, but his .218/.267/.426 slash line with 10 homers and one steal isn't impressive enough to keep him on rosters if he misses more than a few days.
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.
