Palka played 1B 4 years ago at Visalia (A+)- I think if the White Sox thought he had any chance to be in the mix at 1st- they would have given him playing time there at Charlotte, Chicago or in spring training- which they haven't.

Can Delmonico play 1st? Yes.

Can he play it well? Not really- and the Sox must think the same thing- he's a great guy, with a decent bat who couldn't handle 3rd base- they have put him completely in the outfield to sink or swim- with a total ~25 appearances at 1st since 2017.
