Delmonico agrees to terms, Bundy remains
In a story that first broke on his own Twitter feed, the Orioles have agreed to terms with sixth-round pick Nick Delmonico, reaching a deal that will keep the highly-coveted high school infielder –believed to be a first or second-round talent who fell due to money demands and signability concerns — from attending Georgia this fall.
The 19-year-old Delmonico, who was drafted out of Farragut High School in Knoxville, Tennessee has a highly-advanced bat and has one of the biggest upsides among the Orioles draftees. He is listed at 6-foot-3, 215-pounds and hit .426 as a senior with 11 home runs, 45 RBIs and 53 walks.
Delmonico won four Class AAA state titles and ended his high school career with 45 home runs, 156 walks and 209 RBIs.
The Orioles have now agreed to terms with 21 of 50 picks.
