LF,RF - FA
Chicago White Sox outfielder Nicky Delmonico was the hero of the game in his team's 6-4 win over the Red Sox on Thursday. Delmonico went 1-for-2 with a walk-off three-run homer in the contest.
Delmonico came to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning with his team down 4-3 and launched a three-run shot off of Boston closer Ryan Brasier to send the Chicago fans home happy. Delmonico is now hitting .222 with the one homer, three runs, and five RBI in limited playing time.
Nicky Delmonico has been dealing with a stiff neck and hasn't played a game since September 16th.
The White Sox may not have known he would miss this much time, but a quick 10-day DL stint could've been a good option. Instead, the White Sox have had him listed as day-to-day. With only a handful of games remaining, Delmonico may not see much more playing time anyway.
Nicky Delmonico went 1-for-4 with a single and a walk during Sunday's loss to the Orioles.
Delmonico shouldn't be owned or started in fantasy leagues, but if he is, he's not helping owners at this time. He's hitting .162 in September with 17 strikeouts in 37 at-bats. It's time to drop him if you haven't already.
Nicky Delmonico had a single and a strikeout during Tuesday's loss to Kansas City.
That single was his first hit in six games as hit numbers are getting ugly. Batting .146 over the last two weeks isn't going to help him get playing time. He's a player to avoid for the rest of this year.
Nicky Delmonico went 0-for-4 on Monday and has just two hits in 21 September at-bats.
Delmonico has had such a tough time at the plate pretty much all season, but more so over the last month. He should only be rostered in keeper or dynasty leagues, and that's even a stretch.
