Delmonico (hand) is no longer wearing a split and has begun work to strengthen his wrist, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Delmonico had a split on his right hand and wrist area for close to three weeks in order to immobilize a fractured third metacarpal hone in his right hand. When an individual has been wearing a split that long, the muscles begin to atrophy, so there's a buildup process Delmonico must go through before he can initiate baseball activities. He'll likely require a rehabilitation stint before eventually returning the active roster.
Delmonico (hand) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday.
As expected, Delmonico was moved to the DL after suffering a fractured third metacarpal on his right hand during Friday's outing. The outfielder will miss 4-6 weeks while recovering from this injury. In his place, Leury Garcia is set to receive everyday starts in left field.
Delmonico was diagnosed with a fractured third metacarpal on his right hand and will miss the next 4-6 weeks.
Delmonico owns just a .226/.331/.304 batting line in 36 games, but the White Sox were hoping he would rediscover the power he showed in 43 games last year, when he mashed nine home runs with a .482 slugging percentage. Instead, they'll have to wait until at least late June, and possibly until the All-Star break, to see what they have in the 25-year-old.
Delmonico left Friday's game after he was hit by a pitch in the right wrist.
This one looked bad, as it was immediately clear Delmonico would not be able to continue Friday's game. Expect an update before Saturday's game at the latest, but this looked like it could send Delmonico to the disabled list. That said, consider him day-to-day until further notice.
Delmonico was added to Thursday's starting lineup and will bat fourth while manning left field against the Rangers.
Delmonico was originally on the bench for Thursday's game with southpaw Cole Hamels scheduled to take the hill for Texas, but Hamels was scratched due to neck stiffness and replaced by right-handed Doug Fister. Following a shuffling of the White Sox's roster, Adam Engel will head to the bench in favor of Delmonico.
