These three ex-Red Sox pitchers have been lights out as of late
It should be noted that although the WooSox labeled it at 515, Statcast measured the homer at 499 feet. Either way, that ball was demolished.

The Red Sox optioned Dalbec back to Triple-A Worcester last weekend. According to Peter Gammons, the club has been "actively marketing" the 27-year-old infielder for a potential trade. That monster homer should help the cause.
Dalbec entered Friday hitting .258 with five homers and 19 RBIs in 26 games with the WooSox in 2023. He still hasn't figured it out in the majors as he's just 2-for-11 with Boston this year.
