Orioles agree to terms with Delmonico; Bundy left
Tennessee prep third baseman Nick Delmonico, who fell to the sixth round because of his signing demands, announced on his Twitter page that he has agreed to terms with the Orioles.
The terms are unknown at this point.
Delmonico, whose father, Rod, was the longtime baseball coach at Tennessee, was considered first- or second-round talent by some draft pundits, but he fell all the way to the sixth round and the 185th overall pick.
Delmonico, who had committed to Georgia, played catcher at Farragut High School. However, the Orioles project him as a third baseman.
At 6 feet 3, 215 pounds, Delmonico’s best tool is his bat. He batted .426 with 11 homers, 45 RBIs, 53 walks and 23 steals in leading Farragut to a fourth consecutive Class AAA state championship.
