Red Sox highlights: Watch Bobby Dalbec hit first home run of spring training originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

MLB spring training got underway Thursday, and the first player to hit a home run was Boston Red Sox first baseman Bobby Dalbec.

Dalbec doubled Boston’s lead over the Minnesota Twins to 2-0 in the bottom of the first inning with a solo homer over the Green Monster at JetBlue Park.

Dalbec batted .240 with 25 home runs with 78 RBI in 133 games for the Red Sox last season.

He supplied plenty of power at the plate, but he failed to get on base consistently. Dalbec struck out 156 times, walked just 28 times and had a .298 on-base percentage.

The Red Sox will need Dalbec to improve his power and strike out less in 2022 after the loss of veteran slugger Kyle Schwarber in free agency.
