Bobby Dalbec has returned to Boston, but that doesn’t spell good news for Trevor Story.
The Red Sox on Thursday recalled Dalbec from Triple-A Worcester. The infielder was optioned to the WooSox in August after Triston Casas was brought up to the big-league club.
But a player won’t be going back to Worcester, as the Red Sox also announced they had placed Trevor Story on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to Sept. 19. Story has been dealing with a heel contusion and has not played since Sept. 11. It’s been a disappointing debut season with the Red Sox for the second baseman, who also dealt with a wrist injury earlier this year.
As for Dalbec, he recently received high praise from WooSox manager Chad Tracy for handling his option like a “true pro.” He has hit .250 with five home runs and eight RBIs in 13 games with Worcester since being optioned.
The Red Sox open up a four-game series with the New York Yankees on Thursday night. First pitch from Yankee Stadium is set for 7:15 p.m. ET. Thursday’s game will air on FOX.
