    Delmonico is a B- prospect according to John Sickels. Not to bad for KRod.

    Delmonico is far from a sure thing but he's a steep price for a guy who'll pitch 20 innings and didn't even sign with a team until April

    Well, there is this guy named Chris Davis at 1B for the O's. I'm sure they can give up a 1st base depth guy

    He really plays 3B and will replace Ramirez when Traded soon because Hunter Morris future 1B and Taylor Green backup.

    Makes sense for both teams. Provides the O's with a much stronger bullpen and an option if Jim Johnson has another bad string of outings. Also, they can throw KRod in the 9th if JJ has pitched consecutive outings to keep him fresh.

    Brewers get a prospect who will be at worst minor league depth or a backup infielder with the ceiling of an average corner infielder.

    Win win.

    O's #6 prospect according to fangraphs. Here is the scouting report.

    #6 Nick Delmonico (1B/2B)

    Age PA H 2B HR BB SO SB AVG OBP SLG wOBA
    19 393 84 22 11 47 73 8 .249 .351 .411 .354
    When he was drafted, it looked like Delmonico might become a left-handed hitting catching prospect but he balked at the move and spent 2012 playing on the right side of the infield. He doesn’t have the pure actions to be more than an average second baseman and it remains to be seen if he’ll develop enough in-game power to be an impact player at first base.

    He held his own in A-ball during his pro debut in 2012, although he struggled to hit for average before going on the disabled list with a knee injury. He appeared in just one game after July. Delmonico will likely move up to high-A ball in 2013 and should spend most, if not all, of the season there. He could arrive in Baltimore around 2015 and looks like a future average corner infielder.

    I think this is good value for krod. More than I expected. Even a position of need for the brewers.
