The Chicago Cubs of Milwaukee?
Saturday, February 14, 2015
Delmonico, 22, is still under a 50-game suspension for testing positive for an amphetamine late last July. Baseball America reported he has been signed by the Chicago White Sox.
Delmonico was acquired from Baltimore in exchange for reliever Francisco Rodriguez in late July 2013 and immediately was listed among the Brewers’ top prospects. The organization had a void at that position and it was hoped he would rise through the system and fulfill his potential.
But Delmonico missed minor-league camp last spring for what the Brewers termed “personal reasons.” He later reported to Class A Brevard County but played in only 37 games before being suspended. Delmonico was batting .262 with four homers, 15 RBI and a .300 OBP but hadn’t played since July 7 when his suspension was announced on July 28.
Brewers farm director Reid Nichols said Delmonico was released because the organization had lost contact with him.
“We couldn’t contact him,” said Nichols. “He wouldn’t return calls. We couldn’t find him.
“With all the maintenance, we didn’t feel like he was a major-league prospect. So, the work wasn’t worth it. It was too much to deal with. There was a lot going on there.”
As for Delmonico signing with the White Sox, Nichols said, “I hope it works out for him. Maybe this woke him up.”
