Boston Red Sox: Bobby Dalbec stays hot, hits seventh home run of August

Bobby Dalbec has been tearing the cover off the ball during the month of August. The 26-year-old hit his seventh home run of the month against the Rays Monday night.

Dalbec’s home run came in the top of the second inning off Rays starter Luis Patiño. The home run was Dalbec’s 18th of the season.

The power hitting first baseman Dalbec has hit .333 with seven home runs and he’s knocked in 23 RBIs over the last 23 games.

Bobby Dalbec homers on one-year anniversary of his big-league call-up

It was also one-year ago today that Boston called up Dalbec. He made his debut last season against the Washington Nationals. If you may recall, he also homered in that game.

Since his big-league promotion, Dalbec has played in 131 games bc slugged 26 home runs, knocked in 77 RBIs and has an .804 OPS.

Red Sox media and the fan base has been very critical of the rookie this season. Dalbec has been inconsistent at the plate all season long. There’s been moments where it’s been speculated he should be demoted to Triple-A Worcester.

Dalbec has made adjustments recently at the dish. It could be the pressure of having Kyle Schwarber lurking over his shoulder for playing time at first base. Either way, Dalbec is finally hitting for consistent power and he’s driving in runs. The Red Sox will definitely welcome this version of Dalbec for the remainder of the season.
