The futile at-bat did a bit to ease concerns that Delmonico, who plays all four corner positions and can work the count a bit, wouldn’t fit in with the Pale Hose.

Delmonico was called up to fill the roster spot left open when outfielder Willy García was placed on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion incurred when the team’s top prospect, Yoán Moncada, delivered a full-force knee strike to his head last night.
