3B Bobby Dalbec Sits Just Outside The Red Sox 'Top Ten'

Dalbec Connects On HR
Kevin Youkilis, Will Middlebrooks, Travis Shaw, Yoan Moncada—all former Red Sox third-basemen and all gone. Pablo Sandoval, our Nation turns its lonely (and wicked scared) eyes toward you! Assuming The Carmine Hose Hot Corner can survive until 2018, the 'cavalry' will be right around the corner. Most pundits are talking about Rafael Devers—and well they should. The now #2 prospect in the Red Sox organization looks like the real thing. But there is a guy just outside the Top Ten ranking (#11) that might be just as good—Bobby Dalbec. In fact, the 21-year old third-sacker may have more power potential than Devers. In limited 2016 action at Single A Lowell (34 games), the 6'4", 225-pound Dalbec hit .386 with 7 HRs and 33 RBIs. In fact, he captured two New York-Penn League Player Of The Week awards in his short stay in The Canal City. Keep an eye on him!
