  • Dominic Smith Heading To Boston

    Headshot for Dominic Smith

    The Boston Red Sox are expected to sign first baseman Dominic Smith after the Tampa Bay Rays released him from his minor-league contract on Wednesday. The Red Sox are short-handed at first base with injuries to Triston Casas (rib) and the recently signed Garrett Cooper (wrist), so they will take a flier on the 28-year-old, who can also play the outfield. Cooper is expected to be fine, though, and the Red Sox also have Bobby Dalbec capable of manning the cold corner, so Smith will probably just be a left-handed bench option at first base. Smith hit .254/.326/.366 with 12 home runs in 153 games with the Washington Nationals in 2023 and had gone 21-for-80 (.263) with two homers and 11 RBI at Triple-A Durham this year before being granted his release.

  • Garrett Cooper Traded To Boston Red Sox

    Headshot for Garrett Cooper

    The Chicago Cubs traded first baseman Garrett Cooper to the Boston Red Sox for cash considerations on Saturday. The Red Sox will be taking on the remainder of Cooper's $1.75 million salary for 2024. Cooper was designated for assignment by the Cubs earlier in the week. Boston has been decimated by injuries to start the season, including their starting first baseman Triston Casas who suffered a torn cartilage in his ribs last week. That injury spurred the need for Boston to add a first baseman to the roster and Garrett Cooper appears to be their man, at least in the immediate future. Cooper slashed .270/.341/.432 in 41 PA for the Cubs, a line that easily exceeds the production the Red Sox are seeing from Bobby Dalbec. Fantasy managers should grab Cooper off the waiver wire as he should be thrust into a starting role fairly quickly.

  • Rafael Devers Pulled Against Guardians

    Headshot for Bobby Dalbec

    Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers was pulled during the eighth inning of Tuesday's game versus the visiting Cleveland Guardians, and Bobby Dalbec replaced him defensively at third base. He went 1-for-2 with a double and two RBI before exiting, and it's unclear at this time why Devers was removed from the contest. It's worth noting he dealt with soreness in his left shoulder that cost him four games last week, so it remains to be seen if he's dealing with some type of setback with the injury. The Red Sox should offer some clarity on the 27-year-old All-Star slugger's status shortly, and we'll provide that update when it becomes available. Devers is hitting just .205 with two home runs and five RBI over his first 44 at-bats of the season.

  • Bobby Dalbec Optioned To Minors

    Headshot for Bobby Dalbec

    Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec has been optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday. The former top prospect has struggled during his time with the big league club. So far this season, Dalbec was limited to nine at-bats in which he struck out during six of those. Possibly, Dalbec returns to the MLB if he has a strong showing in the minors. Fantasy managers can continue ignoring Dalbec until further notice.

  • Bobby Dalbec Could Be Pushed Off The Roster

    Headshot for Bobby Dalbec

    After the Boston Red Sox signed veteran first baseman C.J. Cron to a minor-league deal this week, first baseman Bobby Dalbec's spot on the roster suddenly is insecure. The 34-year-old Cron has 187 home runs in 10 career major-league seasons. Dalbec spent most of last year toiling at Triple-A Worcester and he still has a minor-league option remaining. Pablo Reyes can also play all over the infield, including at first base, where he is getting more work in spring training, so he has much more versatility than Dalbec. Triston Casas is Boston's starting first baseman after he broke out offensively in 2023. The 28-year-old Dalbec was once a former top prospect in Boston's system, but it looks like they're moving on.

  • Red Sox Add C.J. Cron On Minor-League Deal

    Headshot for C.J. Cron

    The Boston Red Sox have signed veteran first baseman C.J. Cron to a minor-league contract, and he's expected to compete for a roster spot. Cron is a former All-Star (2022) known more for his power, hitting 28 and 29 home runs in his last two full seasons in Colorado. Last season, Cron missed time due to a back injury and was traded mid-season to the Los Angeles Angels. In all, he played 71 games and finished with a .248-12-37-38-0 line in 258 at-bats in 2023. He'll presumably back up Triston Casas if he were to win the job, which likely makes Bobby Dalbec the odd man out, with Dalbec starting the season back in Triple-A where he mashed 33 home runs last season and stole 18 bases.
