White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Gets spot in 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox announced Monday that Delmonico will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

Delmonico had previously joined the White Sox for spring training as a non-roster invitee. A career .227/.315/.393 hitter at the big-league level, Delmonico isn't expected to be in the mix for regular at-bats with the White Sox, though he'll provide the club with another left-handed bat off the bench.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: In mix as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico is in competition for the White Sox's 26th man job, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

After the White Sox assigned candidates Zack Collins and Yermin Mercedes to Triple-A Charlotte earlier this week, Delmonico remains in the mix along with Cheslor Cuthbert and possibly Andrew Romine. Delmonico is a popular clubhouse figure who provides an important left-handed bat to a righty-dominant lineup, and he appears healthy again after undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery in June 2019. When camp disbanded, Delmonico was hitting .250 (8-for-32) with four extra-base hits and four RBI over 13 spring contests.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Hot spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's spring game against Oakland.

Delmonico added a home run to the three doubles he's hit, upping his spring average to .389 (7-for-18). The outfielder was a Chicago favorite when he bashed nine home runs in 141 major league at-bats in 2017, but he's since dealt with injuries, diminished production and the Triple-A-to-MLB shuttle. There does not appear to be a spot in the outfield for him on the roster entering 2020. Leury Garcia (position versatility) and Adam Engel (defense) bring more as fourth and fifth outfielders.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Gets first start of spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico (shoulder) will start in left field and bat third Monday in the White Sox's Cactus League game against the Dodgers.

Delmonico's 2019 season came to an end in early June, when he required surgery to repair the labrum in his left shoulder. The White Sox dropped him from the 40-man roster shortly thereafter, but he rejoined the organization on a minor-league deal in December. The 27-year-old served as a designated hitter in the Cactus League opener Sunday against the Reds and drew a walk over his two plate appearances, but his ability to pick up a start in the outfield confirms he's fully healthy following last year's shoulder surgery. Expect Delmonico to open the 2020 campaign at Triple-A Charlotte.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Back with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico (shoulder) returned to the White Sox as a non-roster invitee Monday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Delmonico has been with the White Sox's organization since 2015. He struggled to a .206/.265/.286 slash line in 21 games last season before being shut down for shoulder surgery and subsequently released in early June. His status heading into spring training is not yet clear.

June 10, 2019 03:32 PM
Nicky Delmonico: Let go by Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox released Delmonico (shoulder) on Monday.

Delmonico was removed from the 40-man roster after the White Sox needed to open up a spot for Monday's starting pitcher, Odrisamer Despaigne, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Charlotte. Since Delmonico is slated to miss the rest of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery last week and wasn't likely to be tendered a contract for 2020, the organization elected to part ways with him rather than stashing him on the 7-day injured list at Charlotte.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Undergoing season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico underwent season-ending surgery to repair the labrum in his left shoulder Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Delmonico got into 21 games with the White Sox this season, hitting a disappointing .206/.265/.286. He'll be fighting for a bench role once healthy next spring.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Sunday's game against Toronto.

Delmonico joined the big-league club April 22 but has hit just .206 with two doubles, a home run, six RBI and six runs scored across 21 contests. While the White Sox haven't announced an official corresponding move, Delmonico's demotion could make way for the activation of Eloy Jimenez (ankle).

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Rejoins lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico (shoulder) will start in left field and bat sixth Monday against the Indians.

Delmonico will check back into the lineup after a sore left shoulder prevented him from playing in Sunday's series finale with the Blue Jays. The 26-year-old has served as the White Sox's primary left fielder since his April 22 callup from Triple-A Charlotte, but has submitted a .222/.286/.333 slash line across 49 plate appearances. He could be in danger of moving into a reserve role with Charlie Tilson building a strong case for regular action.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Nursing sore shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico is out of Sunday's lineup against the Blue Jays with left shoulder soreness, Madeline Kenney of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Delmonico was on the bench after starting the last eight games, but this apparently isn't just a regular day off. The 26-year-old should be considered day-to-day while Charlie Tilson and Ryan Cordell start in the corner outfield spots Sunday.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Heads to bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico is out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale at Toronto.

Delmonico started the last eight games in left field with Eloy Jimenez (ankle) on the injured list and went 5-for-25 with two runs, one double and one RBI. Charlie Tilson and Ryan Cordell will start in left and right field Sunday, respectively.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Sixth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico will start in left field and bat sixth Thursday against the Indians.

Following Eloy Jimenez's (ankle) placement on the injured list, Delmonico has taken over as the White Sox's regular starting left fielder against right-handed pitching. He'll stick in the lineup for the sixth straight game despite going just 3-for-16 with six strikeouts over the prior five contests.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Delivers walkoff blow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico went 1-for-2 with a three-run, walkoff home run in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Red Sox.

With the White Sox facing left-hander David Price, the left-handed hitting Delmonico opened the game on the bench and entered as a pinch hitter for Ryan Cordell in the seventh inning, then finished up in left field. The home run was his first in his seven games played since being recalled from Triple-A Charlotte. He now has 18 career long balls in 138 major-league games. With left fielder Eloy Jimenez (ankle) on the injured list, Delmonico has an opportunity to get regular at-bats whenever the White Sox face a right-handed starter -- but that window may only last about another week.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Starts for Jimenez
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico started in left field and went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Monday's 12-2 win over Baltimore.

Delmonico was called up when the White Sox placed Eloy Jimenez on the bereavement list. With right-hander Andrew Cashner scheduled to pitch Tuesday, the left-handed hitting Delmonico is likely to make a second straight start.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Joins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

Delmonico will provide outfield depth for the White Sox while Eloy Jimenez (personal) is on the bereavement list. Through 17 games with the Knights this season, Delmonico owns a .286/.382/.540 slash line with three homers, 10 RBI and a stolen base. He appeared in 88 games for the White Sox last season but hit just .215/.296/.373 with eight homers.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox optioned Delmonico to Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.

Delmonico's hopes of making the Opening Day roster may have ended after the White Sox came to terms with top prospect Eloy Jimenez on a six-year, $43 million contract earlier in the week, likely ensuring that the 22-year-old will break camp with the big club. Prior to getting cut, Delmonico had missed time this spring due to a concussion, but he recently returned to the Cactus League lineup and should be ready to play on a regular basis once the International League season commences.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico (concussion) will serve as the White Sox's designated hitter and will bat cleanup in Monday's Cactus League game against the White Sox.

Delmonico will check back into the lineup for the first time since March 7 after passing through all phases of the MLB's concussion protocol. The White Sox won't expose him to defensive work just yet, but expect Delmonico to see some action in the outfield before the Cactus League schedule winds down. The 26-year-old still appears in decent shape to crack the White Sox's Opening Day roster.

March 16, 2019 03:36 PM
White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Could return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico (concussion) could return as a designated hitter Monday against the Giants, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Delmonico has been out for 10 days with a concussion after crashing into a gate to make a defensive play. He recently returned to baseball activities and could be back in the lineup soon as long as he passes concussion protocol.

March 16, 2019 02:32 PM
White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Returns to baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico (concussion) will take part in baseball activities Friday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Delmonico suffered the concussion last week against the Brewers and has been going through workouts this week, but he had yet to be cleared for baseball activities. According to Merkin, the 26-year-old will face concussion testing after participating in baseball activities, and if all goes well he could return to game action in a few days.

White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Gets in cardio work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delmonico (concussion) was able to ride an exercise bike Monday and could receive full clearance for baseball activities by the weekend, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Delmonico was diagnosed with a minor concussion after colliding with the left-field fence in a Cactus League game one week earlier against the Brewers. The White Sox shut Delmonico down for the next three days before he resumed light activity Monday. The 26-year-old apparently experienced no recurrence of the concussion symptoms while biking, but he'll still have to pass through three more phases of the MLB's protocol for head injuries before being ready to rejoin the lineup.
