McAdam: Bobby Dalbec promises future strength in numbers

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- For all the success of the Red Sox minor league development system in recent years, the organization has struggled somewhat to produce a pure power hitter.

Sure, it's graduated Mookie Betts and seen him turn into one of the game's best overall players with one MVP already and the promise of more to come. But Betts isn't strictly a home run hitter (career best: 32). For that matter, neither is Rafael Devers or Andrew Benintendi, to cite two more recent arrivals.

Bobby Dalbec, however, is another matter.
