Nicholas John Delmonico (born July 12, 1992 in Knoxville, TN) is an outfielder who is a free agent. He made his Major League Baseball (MLB) debut with the Chicago White Sox in 2017.
Nicky is the son of college coach Rod Delmonico and the brother of minor leaguer Tony. He was a first-team Baseball America high school All-American as a junior. He was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 6th round of the 2011 amateur draft out of a high school in Knoxville, TN.
On July 28, 2014, Nicky was handed a 50-game suspension for testing positive to amphetamines. He was playing for the Brevard County Manatees of the Florida State League at the time.
After making his major league debut with the Chicago White Sox on August 1, 2017, he reached base at least once in his first 13 major league games. One day after the streak ended, on April 18th, he hit two home runs, including an inside-the-park homer in the 8th to lead Chicago to a 4-3 win over the Texas Rangers.
