Bobby Dalbec (1B, BOS) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~200 pick

CURRENT ADP: ~221 overall

ANALYSIS: Bobby Dalbec will get every opportunity to be the Boston Red Sox starting first baseman in 2022 after his strong finish last season. Dalbec might be just holding the spot warm for elite prospect Triston Casas, who hit .284 with 13 homers in 77 Double-A Portland games last season, but the slugging first baseman finished with a decent season overall. Dalbec slashed .240/.298/.494 with 25 home runs and 78 RB along with a .792 OPS. However, he struggled to start the season to the extent of being on the verge of being sent back to the minors. Dalbec finished the first half slashing .219/.264/.409 along with a .673 OPS. His potential demotion lit a fire in Dalbec that proved that he could hit in the big leagues.

After the All-Star break, Dalbec proved how lethal he could be, slashing .269/.344/.611 along with .955 OPS. He smacked 15 homers with 42 RBI and lowered his strikeout rate to 28.8%. His inconsistency is maddening, but the power is absolute. A top-notch 20.2% barrel rate along with a promising second half last season has Dalbec as one of my favorite corner infield options at his current ADP.
