26-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Chicago White Sox
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Delmonico was sidelined from mid-May to mid-July due to a hand fracture and never found much sustained success in 2018. He hit surprisingly well in 2017 but came crashing back to Earth, posting a .215/.296/.373 slash line in 318 PA for the White Sox, most of which came as a left fielder. The 26-year-old had a 25.2% strikeout rate and 8.5% walk rate -- both of which are salvageable -- but showcased few strengths during the 2018 season. Delmonico seems unlikely to continue to see such extended major-league opportunities with the White Sox without increased production, as the organization still features a strong farm system, including top prospect Eloy Jimenez, who is on the cusp of being called up.

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

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Before dismissing last season's second-half emergence as a fluke, keep in mind Delmonico was once a highly-regarded prospect. However, personal issues, including a 50-game suspension for using amphetamines in 2014, curbed his development. After struggling in 2015, Delmonico regained prospect status in 2016, slashing .338/.397/.676 in 159 plate appearances at Double-A Birmingham before being promoted to Triple-A Charlotte where he recorded a .246/.320/.388 line. Delmonico opened 2017 at Charlotte, showing across-the-board improvement to .262/.347/.421. Injuries at the big-level prompted a promotion on July 31. Delmonico continued improving, getting on base at a 37 percent clip while slugging .482. The White Sox are acquiring pieces for 2019 and beyond and have nothing to lose by giving Delmonico a good look. His plate skills suggest he can avoid long slumps, increasing chances for success. Have Plan B ready, but there's pathways to profit drafting Delmonico as a fourth or fifth outfielder in mixed formats.
