Nick Delmonico headed to the DL

Nick Delmonico headed to the DL

PostPost #1 by Matt P » June 27th, 2012, 8:19 pm

Terrible news for the O's as he was having a nice year.

Single-A Delmarva infielder Nicky Delmonico, who just eight days ago was named the MVP of the South Atlantic League All-Star game, now is headed for the disabled list with a knee injury.

Delmonico left Delmarva's game last night and today had an MRI and the Orioles are awaiting the results of what is a medial meniscus injury. Delmonico will likely see Orioles orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens over the next few days.

In 70 games for the Shorebirds, Delmonico was batting .254 with 20 doubles, six homers and 43 RBIs. He has a .351 on-base percentage, .402 slugging percentage and .754 OPS.

He was drafted in the sixth round last June out of Farragut High in Tennessee and was named the Orioles' seventh-best prospect in the preseason by Baseball America. Delmonico went 2-for-4 in the Sally League All-Star game with a single and double.

In better prospect news for O's fans, Manny Machado hit a two-run homer for Double-A Bowie in the first inning tonight, giving him 11 hits over his last 25 at-bats with three homers and 13 RBIs.

This organization just has too much bad luck. He's likely done for the season and that is a shame.

Bad in that you'd like to see him continue to improve and adjust to playing baseball every day. Good in that it may only be 4-8 week recovery time. He may be able to play again this year.

Me too. Sure glad he wasn't though. Delmarva desperately needs his bat.

Talk here up close was the possibility of shutting him down for the season. Biggest concern I have is that in his first two starts upon returning he has played 1B, a position he had been moved off of about 35 games ago.

This tells me there are still issues around his mobility.

hm... Well, that's not good. I really wish he would move off 1B. Just not a good position for him IMO
