Boston Red Sox Infielder Heading to Triple A

The Boston Red Sox have made a notable omission to their Opening Day roster, as Bobby Dalbec has not made the cut and has been optioned to Triple-A Worcester.

Dalbec has been being shopped by the Red Sox since the beginning of the offseason, but they have yet to find him a new home. Now, things have taken an even worse turn for him, as he is not going to be starting the season on their major league roster.

After posting a 25-home run campaign in 2021, Dalbec took a major step in the wrong direction with the Red Sox last season. In 117 games played, he had 12 home runs, 39 RBIs, and a rough .215 batting average. This and the emergence of top prospect Triston Casas have resulted in this demotion, and now he will need to wait and see what the next step will be with Dalbec from here.

Alas, we will now need to wait and see if this demotion results in Dalbec being moved shortly. Some teams to watch out for include the Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, and Pittsburgh Pirates.
